Duchess~Susan May Warren~Book Review

About the Book:

This is the 3rd book in the daughters of fortune series–to learn more about the first two you can read the following snippets:

Heiress & Baroness

When her country needs her, will she have the courage to surrender her glittering world and her one true love?
The golden age of Hollywood is in the business of creating stars. Rosie Worth, now starlet Roxy Price, has found everything she’s wanted in the glamour of the silver screen. With adoring fans and a studio-mogul husband, she’s finally silenced the voices-and grief-of the past. Her future shines bright…until the fated Black Friday when it all comes crashing down. When Roxy loses everything, she finds herself disgraced and penniless. Her only hope is to join forces with Belgian duke Rolfe Van Horne, a longtime film investor. But Rolfe is not who he seems, and he has other plans for Roxy and her movies-plans to support a growing unrest in Europe, plans that could break her heart and endanger her life.
My thoughts:
I’ve been a Susan May Warren fan for quite awhile and always look forward to reading her new books. I’ve LOVED many of her books. This book just didn’t feel like her usual. I didn’t love it and I felt badly about it because I do enjoy her writing.
I felt like it was hard to get into it and be excited about reading it. Perhaps it was the subject matter–Hollywood glam in the 30’s just isn’t my typical subject to care about. I also felt the jump to the Nazis in Europe wasn’t so believable.
And there you have it–I love Susan May Warren but I didn’t love this book and I feel badly about that.
