Price of Privilege Book Review

Book Review of Price of Privilege
by Jessica Dotta

REVIEW BY: L. Bankhead

This is the third installment of the Price of Privilege Series by new author Jessica Dotta, who has a clear fancy of the Regency to Edwardian era of the United Kingdom's history.  If you are even mildly entertain by Downton Abbey, then you will revel in this series.  I came in on the third book, with no back story from book one and two at all.  I wondered if I would be lost in the story, but it seems each book stands on it's own.  Dotta writes with the true British style weaving the sacred mix of dry comedy and drama.  It seems Julia (our lead) is in a tangled web of manipulation from Chance Macy, and she will have to break free of the scandal, ploys, lies and deceit that snarl her life. Of course the era in which Julia is living makes her the height of impropriety. I admit that without reading the first two installments, I found the first half of the book to trawl about here and there. I had no back story information, and Julia is completely dramatic on all accounts in proper Brontë pattern.  Near the end of the book is when the cat comes out of the bag and you will need your embroidered hankie and a good cuppa.  Dotta is a fantastic author, and I will now go back and read the first two books which are awaiting me in my Kindle.  I will also add her to my "authors to watch" list for her next novel. 

(I received this book free from Tyndale Blog Network as a request to review this book. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

NEXT UP!  Reviews coming your way this Winter....
