Reminiscent of classics such as Pride and Prejudice, The Hesitant Heiress is a refreshing read that embodies the style and heart of much-loved classics.
1. THH felt solid in the time that it was set in. No future lingo slipped in, and it felt very real
2. Dawn’s style was easy and drew me in from the first page!
3. THH featured very real and well-written characters
4. I couldn’t stop reading!
5. The character had a unique name, not one that I would forget or get mixed up with other characters’ names.
6. The plot was well-thought out and strong.
7. The romance was shippable! Lots of romances have good story, but flat romance, or flat story, good romance. This story had good romance AND good story.
8. Nathan was totally awesome. Like, really.
9. I loved how this book is written in First Person! It has the classic feel of Austen, but also the personal feel that you can only get with First Person Point of View.
10. The villain! He totally came out of nowhere, and was completely unexpected, but still sort of unconsciously expected. I loved how this story actually had a reall villain, while some romances just go for emotions as the villain.
11. I love how the chapters start out with quotes!
1. The beginning took me a few tries, and I was somewhat confused for a few chapters.
FOR THE PARENTS
INTIMACY/KISSING – There is a near rape situation, and some mild kissing, and some innuendos
CUSSING – Nothing to report on this front!
VIOLENCE – There’s a revenge plot, but nothing hugely violent.
