I think the book begins well but gradually fizzles out, and the characters aren't very consistent. It's very readable though, as always with Wentworth. View 1 comment. The amazing adventures of "Miss Robinson Crusoe"! I don't want to give away any of the delightful surprises in this story, because you'll want to discover them and savor them on your own.

Grab a copy, fix yourself a cup of tea and curl up with this well-crafted story whose characters will live on in your thoughts long after you finish the final page.
Aug 27, Heather Culley rated it it was amazing. Now there's the kind of mystery I like. People like real people and a heroine confused by social situations just like me. Jul 10, Tessa rated it really liked it. A lovely story one of her best. Jan 10, Judy St.
Unusual book I have read nearly all of the Miss Silver books and many of the author's other books as well.
This one contains a fine romance but hardly any mystery. I'm fact, it was quite easy to put down and then read again later which is not the norm for her other books. While I thought her characters were well developed and the story was told well, it was just sort of a let-down. Additionally I have never seen so many typos as there are in this book.

Many words were misspelled so that you would have to stop and figure out what the word was supposed to be. For example, hex instead of her and ate instead of are come to mind. Save your money and read one of her other excellent stories. Early Bird Book Deal Obvious but sweet I explained the general plot synopsis to someone after the first chapter, and told them what would end up happening throughout. I was right in every respect, because books of the time feel into the same patterns and tropes. Still, I wanted something sweet tonight, and that's what I got.
Not exactly a thriller This is my second Wentworth and, whilst slightly more readable than Hole and Corner was just as far-fetched and silly. I am so glad that these were free on Kindle, otherwise I should be mourning the waste of money. A change of pace Not what I expected from Patricia Wentworth, not a murder in sight! This is a lovely, well written, suspenseful story. May 27, Sep rated it it was amazing. This is one of Patricia Wentworth's "fantastic" adventure novels.
Not that any of the events in the novel could not have happened but they are unlikely. There is a tiny bit of realism along the romance lines. The hero is not that obvious in the beginning. Valentine, the heroine, has spent the first 20 years of her life on a deserted island. She is rescued by a passing yacht and returned to her father's family in England where it turns out she is an heiress.

There is an interesting villainess who struggle with her conscience and two other romances that make an interesting contrast to Valentine's. An enjoyable read but when you're finished you'll have to think hard to figure out what was the mystery. That's not a problem though.

Not sure if you are able to escape the tunnel yet, pretty sure i cleared it but i may have missed something. I do have some criticism.

There are some grammar errors in it, but overall not horrible. Outside of that i think slowing down your first combat when you are learning how to fight would be helpful, just so you really have a chance to figure it out, though, i managed to pick it up pretty quickly so maybe not. Overall awesome start! Keep it up, i'll be sure to check in on it regularly that's for sure.

I'm glad that it's still somewhat understandable at least. Slowing down tutorial combat is good idea, I think I'll change it on the next update. Kingdom Lost.
