Cover - Not fond of the cover. Without looking at the genre or reading the description, readers would think the book is contemporary romance and not historical romance.
Is the story plot or character driven? I felt the story was more plot driven than character. A few book club members did not agree with me.
If you were to talk with the author, what would you want to know? If she has plans to write a love interest for Phineas Bell.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
