Book Review: A Vision of Lucy by Margaret Brownley

Feisty photographer Lucy dreams of becoming working for the local newspaper - but of course, the editor doesn't quite share her goal (in a time where women were mothers and wives, he wouldn't have been the only one). But Lucy is determined to prove his assumptions about females wrong, and sets out to take a photo of the reclusive David Wolf, the man that's had the town abuzz for months.
Lucy doesn't count on falling for this man, and he certainly didn't see himself falling either. When events collide - changing Lucy's life entirely - how will she deal with this, and how will David adjust to his new love for Lucy?

So, honestly?

I kind of liked this book.
I certainly wouldn't say I wholeheartedly loved it - it is, like most of its historical romance genre, predictable. But it drew me in, and I found that I did trot along with the storyline. It's a book that can be put down, and while the romance was beautiful, I didn't develop enough of an attachment to the characters to, say, stick out the entire novel and not skip to the end to see if my hunches were correct.
Which they were. Like I said, predictable, but not in a bad way.
If you're looking for something new, inspired and gripping - you won't find it in this book. You'll probably have a good time, as I did, but it blends in amongst a group of writers whose work is much of a muchness.

This is another BookSneeze post, where the book (ebook in this case) was provided to me for free on the proviso I blog honestly.
