“I just love Susan Parker Rosen! ‘The Bastard Child’ is the second book that I have read of hers and I loved it as much as the first one. I like that the book has a mysterious tone to it and you find out later that the main character, Sara, is trying to solve a family mystery. Deception takes place as the others in the story do not want Sara to find out the truth about her heritage. There are a few good surprises that kept me on my toes. I also like that I did not find any errors in this book as that has been the case in some of the Kindle books that I have read by other authors. I highly recommend this book!”
A little mystery and a little romance- that’s just up my alley!
I found the blurb for this book to be quite intriguing and although I was a bit wary due to some of the reviews I am glad I sat down to read it. The characters are enjoyable and I found myself cheering for them as the plot line progressed. I’m not going to lie- there were some parts that seemed to drag on but the more exciting parts of the book certainly made up for it. I suppose I enjoyed the book because I was able to relate to Sara so much- she is quite the character!
I spend a lot of my time doing ancestry research (about ten hours a week) and the detail that went into that part of the story is most enjoyable. With my background in ancestry I can attest that the more I learn about the deceased the more I grow to love them. Honestly, I would jump for the opportunity to be a character in this book, because I can totally relate.
All in all, this was money well-spent for me.
This story was full of memorable moments, this fast paced mystery drew me in and kept me engaged from the first chapter to the last. Once I started the story, I could not stop listening to it, and completed it over the weekend! This was an intriguing, suspenseful read with a great plot. The story begins slowly and gradually gains pace until it becomes an electrifying page-turner.
I just finished the novel, and I’ve to stay that this was truly well-written! It’s reminds me a bit like Dr. Who yet there is no ScFi and it’s much more mysteries and down-to-earth problems. I love how the novel opens up in 1887 in England and the author excels in being quite detailed. This allowed me, as a reader, to vividly imagine the world as it travels through a span of 120 years. Overall, I found the ” The Bastard Child,” to be quite entertaining and I highly recommend this to readers who are fans of mystery and romance.
