Review: The Brontë Plot

The Brontë Plot The Brontë Plot by Katherine Reay
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Nice, cozy book.
Lucy Alling works in a gallery/decorating shop. When she meets James, a wealthy lawyer, it would seem we are looking at a very conventional romance, but Lucy has a serious problem: She will lie, cheat and even forge to make the people she loves happy.

We learn that both her father and her grandfather were quite dishonest, but Lucy does realize she has a big problem.
When her lies makes her lose both her relationship and her beloved work, she knows she has to make drastic changes.

Though quite enjoyable as a whole, I found the "touristy" parts of the book distracting and long. Too much description of London and the Lake District.
Maybe I've had too much of the Brontë theme?

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
