From India Jennifer Bellevue

Description

India Taylor has arrived in London from the British Colony of India, still reeling in the aftermath of her mother's suicide. Not content to simply stand by while the British officer responsible for her mother's death runs free in London, India has vowed to avenge her, no matter the cost. Enlisting the help of her family's former servant, turned heir apparent to an Earldom, she begins her investigation, all the while dodging the increasingly sinister attentions of Lord Russell, the Earl of Brookhaven.

The course of revenge never did run smooth.

Funny, unpredictable- great storyline. I personally love historical romance, so this was right up my alley :)

Thanks for taking the time to review and leave a comment. I'm glad that you enjoyed From India and I'm delighted to hear that you found it unpredictable as that is something I was really striving for. I love historical romance too. :)

I like India's strong personality and independent spirit. From a reader's standpoint, I would like to know why India wants revenge. The only dropped clue so far is the letter from her mother. I guess, having not read the rest, I would like it if India found the letter in the first chapter, then tried to save her mother. The pov is first person, but the reader doesn't know either her plan or her reasoning. Even if it's just a one-liner "I will find out who blackmailed my mother and I'll make them pay." Better written of course ;). Excited to read on!

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on From India, Samantha. I really enjoyed Turns and am loving what I have read of The Secret of the Sonnets so far. Thanks for your advice, getting a fresh perspective on stuff like the letter has definitely got me thinking of ways to improve the manuscript and make things more clear for the reader. :)

well written, but there are some mistakes here and there, and I didn't really understand how we went from the mother's death to the dress suddenly xxx
