Review: The Duchess War by Courtney Milan

The Duchess War: 1 (The Brothers Sinister) - Courtney Milan

This book started off GREAT, and I loved, loved, loved it for the first 50%. Couldn't put it down! Then it started to meander and got a bit slower, and we get some manufactured drama between Robert and Minnie that felt a bit false for them, but I didn't mind.

In truth, the book could have - maybe should have - ended there. For me, the last 30% of the book dragged and dragged.  There were some sweet moments during the final chapters, so it wasn't a complete bust. I really did enjoy it, just felt the last half didn't hold my attention nearly as much as the first half.
