    Emily's Vow (A More Perfect Union Series, Book 1)

    "You needn't worry your pretty little head...." Argh, is there any sentence more enfuriationg and annoying than this one? Unfortunately this sets the note for a major part of the book. There's a lot of condescension in it, usually based on the fact that Emily is a woman, when it is not about Emily's fear of loving and losing people or dying in childbed herself - hence the vow to stay unmarried the title refers to. Okay, some other part is about her falling in love (again) with her late sister's husband and about the difficulties of life in a town under occupation. Many things happen but I must admit that even though it was well written I couldn't really get into it. I was getting really upset by the way all the men acted and I must damit that I didn't really like the heroine that much either - and our hero, Frank, neither. So all in all it is a solid book with a solid story but it took me quite some time to read it because I kept putting it away. Not bad just not my cup of tea. *I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review.*
