Review: Go Saddle the Sea (Felix Brooke #1)

User Review  - Rosemary - Goodreads

This author has a mastery of authentic nineteenth century language reminiscent of Georgette Heyer. And in fact the author's sister Jane Aiken Hodge wrote a biography of Heyer. Good pace, a rather unlikely ending, must read the next two in the series. Read full review
