outrageous circumstances and a few happily ever afters3 StarsARC Received from the PublisherNetgalley for an honest review The Right Wife by Beverly Barton is the kind of story that confuses me I A Banquet of Consequences (Inspector Lynley, liked it for the most part but the main characters got on my nerves The descriptives of the scenery were great it really brought to mindate 19th century post Civil War Alabama The some of the events of the book are harsh reminders of how hard it was back then and being Black didn t help at all and with the start of the KKK it got pretty scary at times Also I am glad she didn t pussy foot around the race issue that s how it was back then and that s what I expect to read if a book takes place in that time period The main characters Miss Margaret Campbell

to fulfill her promise to her father which means her reputation needs to be spotlessCan they both get what they need without forsaking the ove they feel for each otherI was not impressed with the writing in this story at all Barton is a well known author and I was disappointed that this story did not Keeper of the Light live up to my expectations This is being published after the death of the author so maybe it didn t get all of the re write that it would have if she was still with usThere are other aspects of the story that I was not thrilled with but don t want to write any spoilers I didike the premise of the story but the execution of it was not good at all I honestly don t know if I will read anything else my this author or not after reading thisThanks go to eKensington for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review I haven t encountered too many romances set in the post Civil War South And I can fairly say that I haven t come across too many romances Shattered Spear (The Lost Stars, like The Right Wife either Readers should be aware that this book has its uncomfortable moments involving race together with some uncomfortably rapey moments and religious stereotyping There is something about it that really stands out though It s that vivid but difficult to completely categorize uality Iike to call WTF eryWith her sharecropper father now dead 18 year
