Reviews - What do customers think about Sweet Violet: English Ivy Series #3 (HeartQuest)?
Sometimes cute, but mostly tedious Jan 21, 2007
I enjoyed the first two books in this series WAY more than this one. The character development here is sloppy, the dialogue seems forced, and I couldn't sypmathize with any of the characters, which is never a good thing. The writing just wasn't as good as the first two (not that the first two are exceptional), and I found myself bored many times throughout this book, hoping it would somehow get interesting. I'd recommend the first two to anyone looking for an enjoyable read, but this one isn't worth buying.
A Fun Read Jul 20, 2005
Catherine Palmer is one of my favorite romance authors and I have thoroughly enjoyed her Heart Quest Ivy series. Palmer is wonderful at weaving in exotic places into her books. She does it again with Violet a rebellious young English girl raised in India by her ayah. Edmund (who was the brother to Randolph from book 2 in this series) is a missionary who hasn't gained one convert in his years in India. At the chance of getting a license to preach and his own church Edmund agrees to Violet's father's terms even though he doesn't fully agree with his motives. The only faults I find in this book are how child like Violet is. Sometimes she seems more like a rebellious teenager than a woman. This book is a bit unbelievable too when it comes to Olivia and Edmund's relationship. Even though Edmund realizes that the Hewes aren't as bad as they seem after all of the years of family hatred you can hardly expect them to call each other "brother" and "sister". It would have been more believable for them just to call each other by their first names. Otherwise the books many good qualities outweigh its bad ones. If you liked the other books in this series you will love this one also!
