This was not the best work by this author. The pace was far too slow. Mostly set in Italy where an American millionaire pursues a mysterious woman. The author writes in a clear style but he could have skipped the class on Italian classical culture.
A romantic comedy set in the late nineteenth century. Excellent plot where the hero, who is an ex soldier, goes incognito as the stable groom for the woman he loves.
I would give five stars except for the writer's point of view.
A strong man stands up to a ruthless cattle baron.
A good movie script. Kind of a mystery where the reader is the only one who knows how all the characters are interconnected. A villain who owns a mean dog is the centerpiece for this story set in Canada.
