    One thought on “Roses Are Deceiving: A Gothic Romance in the Tradition of Victoria Holt”

    1. This book was indeed in the tradition of Victoria Holt but could not quite match her excellence, however I really enjoyed this book I have long craved to read something in this genre and this author did that for me.It was reading pleasure.

    2. it was a very good book It had romance, intrigue, mystery and some adventure it reminded me very much of The King of the Castle by Victoria Holt, which I read next I have read Roses Are Deceiving 3 times That s how good it is.

    3. I forced myself to finish this book just to see if there were any redeeming features about the plot As it turned out, it was pretty standard for this type of book, but any enjoyment I might have gotten from it was eclipsed by the perfect awfulness of the writing This was not just a matter of typos, but of appalling grammar, particularly independent clauses strung together with commas as well as incorrect tenses Example I merely wish to explore this house, who knows what I might discover, perhaps [...]

    4. If you want a true Gothic mystery, this is a good one I didn t know until the very end who dunnit The story starts off with Elizabeth who is asked to be a governess for man suspected of killing his wife I won t give away the story but as a governess, you do like Beth and it seems like she has many suspects A good and easy read.

    5. I wanted to give this book 3 5 stars, but was so distracted by all the typos that I had to knock t down a star I enjoyed most of the book, but while the end was somewhat surprising, the writing was forced Worth reading Needs editing

    6. The book is everything, I had expected it to be I had been longing to read this book for two years,now I am reading it.
