So, this last month as been INCREDIBLE. The release of The Petticoat Letters has been nothing but awesome. My mind is blown away by all the readers who have bought the book and who have shown me so much support and encouragement. It makes drafting book 2 in the series easier (only a little though…this book is proving to be…different).

“Loves, loved, loved this book! Incredible tension, perfect pace, passionate characters, and a plot that roped me in so smoothly that I couldn’t put off finishing it tomorrow! One critique would be the heavier profanity in the first few chapters versus the remainder of the book but at the same time, the word choice did help solidify the female protagonist as far from the average stereotype of the day. A huge plus to this book was the well developed and believable blossoming connection between the main characters, Nora and Alex. It did not seem forced or rushed and I can’t wait to read what happens to them next in Book Two!” -Susan Pacella
“I’m a big fan of historical romances, but to be honest I tend to read the ones that take place Europe. When the author reached out to me and I found out her book would take place during the revolutionary way i became intrigued. All I can say is that this book exceeding all of my expectations.
This book was a nonstop thrill ride from beginning to end. I was constantly on the edge of my seat from chapter to chapter not knowing where the danger would come from or who would be safe. Kelly did a a great job of thrusting Nora and Alex into the dangerous world of a young country at war, both fighting to survive and be free.
Nora is a girl who has lost everything and everyone she has ever loved to this war, she is alone and directionless as she just tries to survive her grief. What Nora knows all too well that the world can a cruel and unforgivable place; and if she is going to thrive she has to take her destiny in her own hands.
What i loved about Nora is she felt real. She was a girl and the cusp of womanhood, who suffered great loss and is just trying to navigate life when she is thrust into the dangerous world of war. Even though she is hurting, she refuses to let the grief consume her. She is strong and independent and is willing to fight for what she wants. But is she is a still a person learning to navigate her new world and no matter how strong she thinks she needs, she still understands that sometimes she needs the help of others if she is going to survive.
Alex is very swoon worth, I will say that this book is really Nora’s story so we don’t get as much of Alex as I would like, but what we do get is pretty darn amazing. Alex is on a similar journey to Nora’s and while he is a little more versed on the dangers of the world he is still a man struggling to find his place in the middle of a war for freedom.
I always love a good villain and Kelly created a deliciously evil one in Captain Roth. He is truly an evil man who enjoys the cat and mouse game and playing with his prey. He is the perfect foil to Nora and Alex, a dangerous man who will stop at nothing to win the game.
The Petticoat Letters is great book that will keep you on your toes. Full of intrigue, danger and romance that will keep you engrosses from page and have you desperately turning pages to see what happens next.”- Shawna Wood
