I couldn't believe how absolutely bad this book was. There are so many plot errors that I just couldn't read it. From Cassandra inheriting her mother's aunt's title to the Dowager wanting to take over Cassandra's new castle. How did a reclusive old woman rewrite an entail to get her husband's family title transferred to a woman? The book was very stiffly written and did not flow.
I normally don't comment on formatting because I know that the NetGalley edition I receive isn't a final copy. In this case, the Goodread's blurb says that the book was edited, rewritten and shortened from the January 25, 2017 version of "The Countess Refuses". The book was hard to follow at points because it changes from scene to scene with no paragraph separation. In the beginning, it jumps from a scene with Max to one with Cassandra. I had to go back and re-read to see if I missed anything.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
