Hold Me Close by Margeurite Gray a review
Hold Me Close was slow to engage me, but once I got into the book I loved it. It is primarily the story of an unattached young Frenchman who moves to Charles Town SC during the days leading up to the Revolutionary War. He is firm in his intentions to remain neutral but finds that everyone must determine for himself what is right.
This book has something for everyone, romance, and intrigue as you try to determine who can be trusted. The characters are well developed and I found myself trying to recall my high-school French in order to follow a few of the conversations. I loved the descriptions of the houses and menus. The only downside for me is waiting for the next book to come out as this one ends in a cliffhanger.
I was given this book by the author in exchange for my honest opinion. All thoughts are my own.
