    One thought on “Caught”

    1. Caught was a enjoyable read with a compelling plot that kept me interested right up until the last page. A story of impeccable breeding, societal pressures, and romance this book promises to keep the reader guessing.It felt like reading a modern twist on a Jane Austen novel.Caught went a long way into showing that even though it was expected for a lady to be proper and respectable during this time period there is certainly no such thing as black and white. I loved how it showed even a proper lad [...]

    2. Oh, golly, this is a difficult book to rate. And, I suppose, my three is probably more like a three and a half. But there are bits of the novel that, if I could rate them separately, would be higher. Until about 40% in, Caught was a solid four for me. The genre - historical romance with a hint of intrigue - is right up my alley. The writing, although having a few niggles, was generally really good. And the characterisation was strong; I especially liked Brenda and Elizabeth, and couldn't quite w [...]

    3. It's been at least five years since I've read a historical romance novel, and I'd forgotten the pleasures of the genre: the divine dresses, the gossipy ton, the glittering balls, the dastardly rakes, and the political intrigue. I'm delighted to say that Caught delivers the good.Set up as a love square, big and small plots keep two couples on their toes as they fight for love. While Robert and Alison are the main protagonists, I found them to pale in comparison to Anthony and Brenda, who had more [...]

    4. I enjoyed this book, and certainly recommend it. The author, Christina Michaels, obviously did her homework on eighteenth century life in London. I very much liked the extensive use of old English words and terms she used in her story. Basically “Caught” is a romantic novel, set in London in 1772, about a group of young aristocratic friends and their families; each with different personalities, sets of goals and therefore problems, trials and tribulations. Ms. Michaels does a good job of giv [...]

    5. This was an enjoyable read, with more humor than I expected. It scratched the same itch that Edith Wharton and Jane Austen tales do for me, providing barbed and witty dialog and detailing an acute awareness of social status and propriety. In addition to the main story, there was an interesting subplot; I found myself rooting for several characters.

    6. Pretty goodThis is a plot where two unlikely couples meet and conduct courting in this early 19th century story. The repartee between characters is well done, witty, funny. I would recommend to readers of historical romance fiction. I plan to look for more by this author.

    7. Poorly written with many errorsFor example, h: "Miss. Brook to see [whatever his name was]." William: "Blah, blah, Miss. Brook." h: "How do you know my name?" Really?The characters were shallow cutouts; the plot was contrived. I finished it; my mistake.

    8. Not my normal genre, but it was a wonderful story with good people and bad people and in between people, all of whom are dealt with entirely appropriately by the end.
