To be honest, this book IS a little more depressing compared to Edenbrooke. After finishing this book, I can't help but feel a little disappointed for the very much underdeveloped ROMANCE plot. The main part of this book is about the protagonist's memories and how she is conflicted, which I find very confusing. Perhaps of a different perspective, but I could not understand the much elaborated conflict of Kate's choices and finding myself leaning towards the supposed antagonists. And to my surprise, the books actually contains essay questions for itself at the back. Definitely not an English class read, I can tell you that.

LOVED every moment of this story! The sweetness of the love between its main characters was achingly beautiful. Sometimes I would have to put it down for a few minutes to get my breath back!

Not Pleasant To Read In Any Way!
Blackmoore:A Proper Romance was a shocking disappointment compared to Edenbrooke- the first book by this author.Edenbrooke was a total joy to read,light-hearted,sweet and fun.Blackmoore is the total opposite,depressing,total ANGST from the first page to about the last 25 pages.Absolutely no romance or physical attraction until those last few pages,which I despise in a so-called ROMANCE! Except for the two leads and the young Mr. Brandon,the characters are hateful/detestable.

I could kick myself for wasting the time to finish it,because it most certainly is not worth finishing!

Avoid this one and read something else!
