Book Review: The Caged Graves
AUTHOR: Dianne M. Salerni
PUBLISHED: May 2013
GENRE: Historical Fiction, mystery
PREMISE: Verity comes back to her small hometown to be with her betrothed and her estranged father but learns there are things about her mother's past she did not know.
MY REVIEW: First, I apologize for my random reviews lately. I have been having a strange work schedule lately and it's been difficult managing time as result. Plus, this week was fourth of July week which got in the way of reading. Hopefully things will be getting back to normal this month. Now as for this book...It wasn't bad.
Caged Graves is firmly historical fiction and doesn't stray from its genre. There's a nice family mystery to it, the historical details are sound. Overall it's nice. I just wasn't blown away. But for a first book in the historical fiction genre, it's decent.
So if you're in the mood for pure historical fiction, maybe with a sweet romance added in, this fits the bill.
WHO SHOULD READ: Historical Fiction fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five graveyards
