A Willful Woman…

Thoughts about books from a romance addict.

G is for Cecilia Grant aka CG is for Consistently Good

on March 12, 2015

Note: This is currently free on Kobo, and it’s DRM-free, so can be converted to read on any ereader. Oh, also now free on Amazon.

With A Christmas Gone Perfectly Wrong, Cecilia Grant maintains her place on my very short “authors whose books have yet to disappoint me” list. This could be attributable to the fact that she’s only published four books, including this longish novella. But I suspect it may have more to do with the fact that she’s only published four books in four years. Authors are pushed to have new stuff coming out constantly, and not only can’t I keep up with them, but the quality almost invariably suffers.

This is a novella that happens over the course of three days, and I’d still say it’s a book that takes its time. Time to get into the characters, time to use elegant language, time to make classic tropes like the starchy hero into people that modern readers can relate to, without making them seem anachronistic.

I feel like I should write more, but I’m kind of in a reviewing slump right now, so I’m just going to post this while the book is still free. It was really good, go get it!

    I really love your list title!

  2. Olivia Dade says:

    This is on my e-reader already. I’ll now put it to the top of my (mountainous, despite its digital nature) TBR pile. Thanks for the rec, Willa.

  3. CG for consistently good–totally agree. Some authors need to take their time to make art. Grant’s books are always worth the wait.
