Sale Alert: I ordered a new e-book, it was in my #BookBub bargains for today. 📗

Birdsong28 This is such a good book, you should check out the tagged book as it is a sort of sequel to it. I met the author in March and she is so nice. 📚📖 6mo

This is the January choice for one of my book clubs. To be honest, the title and the cover screamed chick lit to me and I was not very interested. #dontjudgeabookbythecover ! This historical fiction is about the Romanovs, which I have been obsessed with since I read Nicholas and Alexandra. Did another Romanov escape the mass murder? Tatiana falls in love with a soldier in the hospital where she is nursing and this is their story.

innah96 hope you enjoy it! 12mo
emilyhaldi Seriously, awful cover!! Glad you liked it 😄 12mo

Totally captivated by this 'what if' tale. A fantastic combination of historical fact and fiction. Beautifully told, all the characters felt so very real. I knew the fate of the Romanov family but not all the details. This book filled me in and I was quite horrified by their barbaric and brutal end. So cruel! An absorbing and fascinating story. I just loved it!

This book was beautiful. I‘m not normally a huge fan of historical fiction, but I am beyond happy that I stumbled upon this absolutely beautiful book. The story, the writing, it was just beautiful.

It‘s a blizzard outside, for annoying reasons I was at work longer than expected, and getting home only about an hour before bedtime calls for extra snuggles before laying him in his crib 😍 don‘t mind me while I enjoy some much needed baby snuggles and an ebook!

When there are 20 mph winds and it feels like 4 degrees outside you hold on tight to a warm cup and enjoy a few pages ☺️ I am REALLY enjoying this book. The story, the writing, the characters. Everything.

Very good. Gill Paul at her best as it was gripping and a beautiful story as she interweaved a love story with the political landscape of 20th century Russia and its surrounding areas. Highly recommend📖📚

I was so entranced with this book that is was impossible for me to quit thinking about it after I was forced to set it down. The depth of dmitri's depression really spoke to me, and by the end I was nearly in tears. The whole book was beautiful..

There was great potential for this book to be awesome. Romanovs, secret marriages, etc but this one just felt a little flat to me.

tpixie Yes. All the Hx and Romanov intrigue was great. But I agreesomething just didn't work 2y

ReadingMeagan @tpixie Good luck with the questions. Umm at the top of my head "what is it about the Romanov's that makes people still interested in them 100 years later?" I don't know. I've never been in a book club, I don't know what gets people talking! 2y
tpixie @ReadingMeagan great question! 2y

The Secret wife by Gill Paul is free on kindle at the moment!! Recommend even though it is on my TBR as I have read Children and Women First, The Affair and No Place For a Lady by this author and love her work. I have got this in print as well now in Kindle form as I took avantage of this offer. UK ONLY ( I think😕) 📖📚

I enjoyed this book for the most part. I liked the factual and fiction (what if ) mixture of the story and the two different timelines going on. It made it interesting to read. 📖📚 #aprilbooks #historicalbooks #historicalromance
