A Book You Loved and One You Didn’t

The 30-Day Writing Challenge asks “A Book You Loved and One You Didn’t”.

A story I enjoyed (and the one that made me read) was “Her Royal Destiny” by Carol Maxwell Eady.  It’s a historical romance regarding Queen Katherine Parr who outlived King Henry VIII.  I read this tale when I was in middle school.  It caused me to become absorbed in in the life of Henry VIII and I imagine myself somewhat of an authority on his spouses.

The novel I didn’t care for was a more recent read called “Baltimore Blues” by Laura Lippman.  So terribly penned, I couldn’t give a damn for any of the characters.  I’m astonished that the author turned out twelve books for the series.  I pray she delved more into the construction of her characters in her recent books and devoted less time on the “fine art of rowing”.
