Summary

Miss Diana Snow is everything a British chaperone should be—she finds satisfaction in order and depends wholly upon the rules of decorum as she negotiates the isle of Greece with her young charge. But Miss Snow's prim and proper exterior masks a disquieting past: orphaned and alone in the world, she has only her stiff upper lip to rely on. When a brief encounter with a handsome stranger challenges her rules of propriety, Diana is unwittingly drawn into an adventure that will turn her ordered world upside down.

Alexandros Metaxas is a Greek spy working to recruit individuals to the cause of revolution. His mission seems to be going perfectly until he encounters Diana Snow, a captivating—if slightly cold—beauty. When their paths cross again, the ill-fated reunion threatens all Alex has been fighting for. But more importantly, it places Diana's life in jeopardy. There is only one way to save her: they must put themselves at the mercy of the most powerful pirate family in the Mediterranean. Soon, Diana is plunged into a fantastic world of gypsy curses, blood feuds, and unexpected romance. But when a bitter vendetta places her in mortal danger, will she have the courage to fight for life and love?

My Review

A PLACE FOR MISS SNOW was a unique historical romance as it was set in the Mediterranean with British characters on foreign soil. Then the story takes even more of a twist when the heroine gets herself into some trouble with pirates. Add to that sweet moments among friends, some humor, a little danger, some daring heroics, and a slowly-building romance, and you end up with a delightful read. Those who have enjoyed Moore's other books or a slower-paced historical will enjoy this one.

I loved the beginning of this story when the reader is first introduced to the two main characters. It grabbed my attention and created a connection to the characters almost immediately. It then had some twists and turns that kept the story going. I enjoyed getting to know the family Diana associates with, but I also have to mention that the middle of this story started lagging for me. However, as I've read this author's other books, I knew things would pick back up, and they did. The ending was surprising, bittersweet, and absolutely beautiful. A perfect ending and one that made me content with the story.

In the end, was it what I wished for? Except for the lagging in the middle, I really enjoyed the story. It was sweet, pulled on my emotions, included some adventure, and had a perfect ending. 

Content: Some violence, but clean.
