Empress Sisi of Austria was the Princess Diana of her day. Pursued by the press and constantly criticized, she was a fascinating character. Ms. Pataki does an excellent job balancing the bitter with the sweet. I highly recommend this series if you like fictional biographies. Make sure you start with The Accidental Empress.
This was an interesting follow up to Sisi. It is set in England just before the start of WW1. Her death occurs a few years earlier, and her empire fights on the side of the Germans. This story centers around three friends that live in an English village. It was charming and sweet and a little sad. Give it a try if you enjoyed Downton Abbey.
I did a review of this book here.
I'm really loving this one. Emily's books always speak to me and meet me where I am. I would recommend checking out all of her books.
I just started this one, but so far it's really good. I enjoy Tosca Lee's writing style. The other books I've read by her were Biblical fiction. This one's a thriller. I'll be doing a review for it soon.
