Review ~ Let it Snow by Erica Ridley

Let it SnoweARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: 15th December 2013

Publisher: Intrepid Reads

Adventurer Lance Desmond needs to produce a fortune before his arch-rival collects the bounty on his head. He risks an ancient curse to retrieve treasure hidden within icebound Castle Cavanaugh, only to become trapped inside. Not with the gold he so desperately needs, but with medieval Princess Marigold who's been cooling her heels since... well, medieval times.

The lonely princess refuses to acknowledge the blossoming attraction between them. Not just because she deserves a better future than a penniless rogue. But because at midnight, he'll vanish like all her other would-be heroes. And the evergreen in the parlor will have one more figurine hanging from its boughs...

My Opinion

I gave this book to 20% but I just couldn't get into it so I stopped reading. I'm sorry to say this after enjoying Erica's other work but this book was just odd to me and I couldn't engage with it. For me the medieval language and circumstances mixed with modern technology and references just didn't work for me; in fact it confused me and I didn't know when the book was meant to be set. Also, it made the speech stiff and unnatural and by 20% I was just not involved enough in the story to feel I wanted to continue.
