Mr Cavendish, I Presume by Julia Quinn

Oh dear. There comes a time when I want to weep, and now is that time. I love Julia Quinn as an author, and I was really happy when this book came out. I eagerly downloaded it (it was an ebook). However, I want my money back. This book is a total waste of time and money.

This is the second in a series – the first being “The Lost Duke of Wyndham.” However, it appears that rather than having 2 different books with the same characters appearing in both books and with different stories – this has the same scenes as the first book but told with different point of views. There are some new scenes, (scenes that were alluded to in the first one) but not enough to warrant an entirely new book.

Once I had realised this, I skim read through and lost all sympathy and interest in the characters. I really didn’t care.

Surfice to say, I am disgusted that a) Julia Quinn agreed to release this book and b) that her publishers seem to have total disregard for her readers by trying to fobb off the same story with the same scenes in two separate books. It’s such a shame because the first book in the series was brilliant.

I want my money back. I think it may take me some time to forgive Julia Quinn for this. All I can hope is that it was her publishers idea and that she was forced to do it….

Rating: 0/10

(I don’t normally rate books I didn’t finish, but this is an exception)
