    I don t know where to start with this or if I should even bother since there wasn t anything to write home about But that WTF stunt near the end was crazy absurd and I m surprised it wasn t even brought up in any other reviews I m gonna try to explain this as best I can without sounding long winded but given the convoluted plot, bear with me I m honestly very tempted to give this a 1 star solely because of a secondary character who is so outrageously out of touch, insipid, self absorbed, vile I don t know where to start with this or if I should even bother since there wasn t anything to write home about But that WTF stunt near the end was crazy absurd and I m surprised it wasn t even brought up in any other reviews I m gonna try to explain this as...

    3.5 StarsAs a Downton Abbey addict, I really wanted to love this book However, it was just ho hum for me Logan was likable, but Alice came across as a little bit spoiled in my opinion I think I was also a little bummed that the story doesn t fully commit to an affair downstairs Logan is the manager of Thornbrook Park, hardly a lowly position, and he is from a titled background I was hoping for some actual conflict between the classes, but it didn t really seem to be that way I really wan 3.5 StarsAs a Downton Abbey addict, I really wanted to love this book However, it was just ho hum f...

    Sweet and charming, An Affair Downstairs was a lovely read It was an enjoyable book and I really liked it.Alice was a good heroine, for the most part She was strong willed, spirited, and vivacious She definitely knew to fight for what she wanted There were a few brief moments where she came off as somewhat shallow and selfish It wasn t to the point that it took down her character but it was enough to make me question her a bit Otherwise, I thought she was great.Logan was simply wonderful Sweet and charming, An...

    Browning has developed a very intriguing storyline with this one It was a unique story that had me pondering the who s what throughout There were a few times when I found myself wondering what was going on, or the relevance of a certain scene, only to have it become apparent a few chapters later Her descriptions bring this world to life, allowing readers to picture their surroundings This was a sweet romance that definitely left me giggling at the end.I quite enjoyed getting to know these ch Browning has developed a very intriguing storyline with this one It was a unique story that had me pondering the who s what throughout There were a few times when I found myself wondering what was going on, or the relevance of a certain scene, only to have it become apparent a few chapters later Her descriptions bring this world to life, allowing readers to picture their surroundings This was a sweet romance that definitely left me giggling at the end.I quite enjoyed getting to know these characters They were quite different individuals, each adding to the story in a different manner I liked the Plato quotes and how they add to the persona of the characters who use them I also had a riot with the Greek mythology The characters...
