She Rises by Kate Worsley

She Rises - Kate Worsley

Ugh.  Not at all what I thought it would be, and not really in a good way.  The writing started off really well, but eventually it started to deteriorate, along with the quality of the whole storyline.  I really don't have any interest in the whole "maid with humble beginnings fawns over snotty, spoiled brat of a mistress" thing.  Just a silly historical soap opera, with a plot twist that was pretty easy to predict at less than 100 pages in.
