The Lacemaker - Book Review

When colonial Williamsburg explodes like a powder keg 
on the eve of the American Revolution, Lady Elisabeth "Liberty" Lawson 
is abandoned by her fiancĂ© and suspected of being a spy for the hated British. 
No one comes to her aid save the Patriot Noble Rynallt, 
a man with formidable enemies of his own. 
Liberty is left with a terrible choice. 
Will the Virginia belle turned lacemaker side with the radical revolutionaries, 
or stay true to her English roots? 
And at what cost?

Historical romance favorite Laura Frantz 
is back with a suspenseful story of love, betrayal, and new beginnings. 
With her meticulous eye for detail 
and her knack for creating living, breathing characters
Frantz continues to enchant historical fiction readers 
who long to feel they are a part of the story.




My Thoughts
Laura Frantz. . .
a lovely and talented author that never lets the reader down.
Whenever I read a story written by this wonderful author
I feel as though I have traveled back in time
and am experiencing history at a very real level.
Laura does not hold back
and the work and effort she pours into a historical fiction novel shows.
The content in incredibly rich in detail
and the characters are brought to life through historical events.
I have always appreciated Laura's writing
and I am thankful she keeps her stories clean.
The romance intertwined throughout her books is discreet
yet always enough.
In my opinion, the reader does not need "steamy" scenes
and Laura refrains from those descriptions throughout her novels.
Thank you, Laura!

The Lacemaker is a beautiful story
that is filled with courage, faith, romance,
and detailed history of the Revolutionary War.
While it was a little slow at first,
it was well worth the effort to persevere to the end
because trust me, the reader will be content and satisfied
when the last page is read.
The characters were charming
and the relationship between Liberty and Noble
developed at a perfect pace.
I read one review that said,
"Laura Frantz's writing is amazingly beautiful and practically effortless to read. 
She makes writing a book look easy, though I'm sure it's not."
I couldn't agree more.
My dear friends, if you enjoy historical romance novels
than you won't want to miss this book.
And if you have not read any books by Laura Frantz
I can't help but wonder. . .
what are you waiting for?!

So many books, so little time! I always enjoy your reviews which give me lots of new books to read. I recently had to power read through the end of a book because the due date was coming up from the library and they wouldn't let me renew it...it was on hold for someone else!

Another book to add to my list! I love having you review these books because often when I see other 'reviews' I'm not sure what their standards are so while other reviewers may give a glowing report on a book, I then find they are usually a bit on the 'trashy' side. Always good to find an author that doesn't need to rely on the 'steamy' to write a quality book!
