Golden Urchin

Another book by Madeleine Brent. I found the book to be very uneven. Brent is a good story teller, but I didn't like this one as well as Moonraker's Bride, but it was still entertaining. I managed to finish the book, knowing the end almost from the start.

Brent seems to have hit upon a successful romance formula. A young orphaned English girl who grows up in a foreign land around the turn of the century. At some point the girl travels to England by boat and discovers she is an heiress. Both Moonraker's Bride and Golden Urchin followed this formula. I briefly flipped through the other Brent stories at the library and they all seem to have the same plot. So I am moving on to the next author.

Book Rating: 3 stars

Next up: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Yes they all have pretty much the same plots, but I really like them. I have most of the books in my library and have boughten them on ebay. They are really great escape sort of stories. The one I don't care for is The Capricorn Stone.
