Am fond of Dilly Court's writing. She is hard to get on this side of the Atlantic. Thank goodness for Amazon

I had preordered this book, as I do all of Dilly's books, and was really worried when I read the reviews of others, BUT I am loving it! I've not finished it yet, but I'm 34% in in 2 nights, which as a bedtime reader is me engrossed.
2.0 out of 5 starsTake it or leave it 🤔 defiantly leave it.

Have read all of Dilly Courts books, most of them , when started, can’t put down, but this one is so unlike her other books. I am trying to get I to it, but it’s not gripping, and I get easily distracted. Will persevere, and hope it improves. So disappointed. I have just completed the book, and I have to say, it’s absolutely awful . It’s so boring, I kept missing chapters. I just cannot understand what has gone wrong with Dilly 😳😴
I have now read 24 of Dilly Court's books. She writes in an easy to read, can't put the book down style, mostly about girls striving to make something of their lives at the turn of the 20th century,and are often based in London. This book sees Nettie fleeing London, because of the plight of her father and takes the couple to France. All Dilly Court's books are good, but this was one of the best. Dilly Court also writes under the name of Lily Baxter.

A good book, but it's a romance to be read on a train and left for the next passenger. It's pleasant to pass the time like that. The characters are flat and the story is boring. However descriptions of European cities are interesting. The heroine is too modern for a story set in the 1870's. Her father is one big misunderstanding. It's impossible to figure out what those people do for a living and how they pay for the travels. There is a mystery, but it's a big joke.
Well, this was a lovely story, but I felt it lacked the passion that I love about Dilly Courts books, I have read everyone of them and always give five stars. Feel this story lost its way and became quite repetitive. Sorry Dilly but just didn't grab my heart this time.
