The Grand Tour by Patricia C. Wrede
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I had a hard time staying interested in this book. I really struggled with the writing of the author that was Cecelia's voice. In both books,actually, we were supposed to believe she loved James, but she barely said two words in any sort of loving sentiment. I felt that was extremely disappointing as it took a lot of the reader's ability to believe the character as a narrator away.
The intrigue was interesting, but not particularly spectacular. The plot was well-arranged and ended without loose ends, which was satisfying, anyway.
Not a terrific book, but not terrible. If you read and enjoyed the first you would most likely enjoy this book.
I wouldn't know which audience to suggest this book to. It is written somewhat simply that would imply it is for a middle-school audience, but some of the words and some of the hints at romantic encounters between a husband and wife put it a little older than that. The cover also seems more juvenile.... I don't know. Maybe a mature middle schooler.
