Catherine's Heart Review

Catherine's Heart (Tales of London #2)

Catherine's Heart 

Book 2 of Tales of London. Eighteen-year-old Catherine Rayborn is thrilled with her first taste of independence when she begins Girton College in Cambridge in 1880. Amid all the excitement, however, comes the painful realization of the vast difference between true love and shallow infatuation. Lawana Blackwell skillfully endears a cast of loveable characters to readers in a story that will linger long after the last page is turned.
My Review: 7.5/10 
 While very interesting, it was painful to read. With about 85% of the book building up an extremely toxic relationship, I just felt too much anxiety and dread. Not enough time was devoted to the sweetness of the right relationship. I liked that we kept plugged into him from time to time, but it just wasn't enough.

And one thing just did not sit well with me: *spoiler* and that was Milly's betrayal. No explanation given. Initially I thought, this has to be a set up. But then, nope. After everything they had been through, and what Milly had JUST said about not being comfortable around him and then... that?! It seemed totally out of character.
