The Creole Princess

The Creole Princess
Gulf Coast Chronicles Book 2
Beth White
Lyse Lanier is living in Mobile, Alabama with her friends and family during the start of the war for independence with Britain. A young Spanish merchant with a flair for life struts into her life. She's not sure what to think of him and isn't sure if she can trust him. Lyse must decide where her loyalties lie and who she is going to choose to trust and spend her life with.

This is the second book in the series, but I think it could stand alone. The cover is gorgeous and will definitely make people pick up the book. The story started off slow for me, but picked up as I got more into the plot. The author has the story packed with history and details that a historical novel reader will love. I felt more educated about that time period and area when I finished reading the book. The details paint a rich story of Alabama during that time and help to create a beautiful backdrop for the plot. I had a hard time relating or connecting to the characters, but felt the historical part helped carry the story. Overall, it was a nice story that a lot of readers will fall in love with.

I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
