    1 thought on “The Locket and the Flintlock”

    1. A friend of mine put it down at chapter 6 but I truly liked this book. I loved the language and the characters and the history.

    2. The Locket and the Flintlock has a solid historic romance concept: the carriage bearing Lucia Foxe, her father, and her sister is accosted on the road by a gang of highwaymen and they are robbed of their valuables, including the locket that Lucia’s dead mother left to her and which she loudly protests the loss of. (This is, by the way, lesbian highwaywoman romance standard plot point A.) Alternating points of view between Lucia and the leader of the highwaymen, Len Hawkins, leave us in no doub [...]

    3. It's certainly well-written enough and the history of the frame-breakers is interesting, but for some reason, I just found the bookring. I read the whole thing hoping for some excitement that never quite happened. It steered clear of most of the cliches, but also embraced a few. Lucia and Len's voices intertwined back and forth, often mid-paragraph, which was confusing, and sometimes I lost track of who the story was focused on because they were not well-developed as completely distinct characte [...]

    4. This was excellent! Just really well put-together. The conflicts made sense, there was intense chemistry between the leads, the historical texture was superb (I learned some things about the Luddites?!), and the prose was solid. Also, as they say repeatedly in the episode, this is the one that most closely fit the stereotypical model of a capital-R, capital-N ~Romance Novel:~ Regency England, elaborate costuming, dashing robbers, the whole shebang.

    5. While I enjoyed the two main characters, I felt the story (namely the plot) could have been less predictable. With that said I still enjoyed reading it, and might even read it a second time, but I just wish there had been more to it.
