Last night I finished a really good book, one that actually felt like I was reading a great story with interesting characters, a good setting and a twisty plot: The Shadowy Horses.
Here's a great review of the book from The Romance Reader. As this reviewer and others have pointed out, Kearsley reads like Mary Stewart...which I love.
The story educated me (archeology!); the characters were likeable, distinct and interesting; there was some romance, but more of a subplot; and yes, I just liked this story. Kearsley's just a good writer and the book reflects that.
