I couldn’t write this book review right after closing the final page of “The Colonel’s Lady”. Why? My heart was too full.
Ever read a book that all you want to do when you finish is go back to page 1 and start all over again? Ever read a book and want to savor every single word as it leaves the page and enters your heart? Ever read a book and never want it to end??
I can tally all of these qualities for Laura Frantz’s latest book and so much more that is impossible to include in a 200 word review.
When Colonel Cassius McLinn entered the scene, his troops weren’t the only ones jerking to attention. This hero commanded so much attention not only from his fellow characters, but from me as a reader. The beauty of Roxanna’s character and their romance together was enough to draw sparks and leave my heart racing. I can’t even document all the scenes that left me short of air.
Never in all the books have I read, have I come across an author who writes with more lyrical and beautiful quality than Laura Frantz. Every time I am charmed, blessed and left bereaving the end of another of her stories.
I sing the praises of this book and her previous two, they only get better!
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.
