A Match for Marcus Cynster review

laurens

I have long been a fan of Stephanie Laurens, but A Match for Marcus Cynster didn’t do it for me. First off, when I had to wade through seven pages (large type, but still) of names and ranks of characters who would appear in this book, I should have foreseen trouble ahead.

The entire novel was just too wordy. I found myself skimming l-o-o-o-ng paragraphs or skipping them altogether.

Still, I did keep reading. A plot device was inventive (I won’t give it away), and the heroine and especially the hero were appealing. The climax of the story was attention-grabbing.

Perhaps Laurens should have written this as a novella. Or perhaps the Cynsters have run their course. This one is the 22nd Cynster novel and the third Cynster Next Generation novel. Star Trek it ain’t.
