EBOOK Secret Daughter of the Tsar

Secret Daughter of the TsarSit from a German officer Determined to protect her son from the Nazis Charlotte escapes the city but not before learning that the officer's interest in her stems from his longstanding obsession with the fate of the Russian monarchy Then as Veronica's passion intensifies and her search for the true heir to the throne takes a dangerous turn the reader learns just how these three vastly different women are connected The Secret Daughter of the Tsar is thrilling from its first intense moments until its final unexpected conclusio My opinion of this book bounced around like a pinball I would find myself rolling my eyes and skimming Veronica chapters and vowing no than two stars then change to Lena and Charlotte chapters and go up to four stars This book is not a five star book and Veronica is the reason The story has a good premise that a fifth daughter was born to Nicholas and Alexandra in 1902 and smuggled out for political reasons To me this story is plausible than one child survived the massacre I know people who lived in the USSR in the 20's and 30's and there was no way anyone got out of that house alive Our main character for some reason is Veronica She is a professor and writing a biography of Empress Alexandra She is also on the brink of being fired and desperate for a boyfriend despite having a recent relationship end badly At least that's the impression when her cousin introduces her to Michael and she falls for his love of Russian history music well everything They fall into a heavy romance which made those chapters hard to stomachFlashback to 1901 shortly after Grand Duchess Anastasia is born and we meet Lena Lena works for the Empress Alexandra and is her current favourite She longs to have a son to ensure the dynasty continues and Lena whose mother was a midwife has advice to offer herIn Paris 1942 we meet Charlotte a former ballerina and her son Laurent They are desperate to flee occupied France and make it to the safety of her parents' house Especially when a Nazi soldier shows up at her door saying mysterious things about her familyAs I said before I liked the concept and really enjoyed the historical parts Charlotte and Lena had enjoyable stories and I wanted them to get their own chapters Their romances or lack there of were told well and weren't rammed down your throat like Veronica's was If the story was their's alone it would've gotten four to five starsWhich brings me to Veronica Sigh Where do I begin? A young career woman who seems worried about what others think Feeling shame for being called the smart weird cousin I hold that title in my own family and do so with pride She allows herself to enter into a deep romance with someone she barely knows finds out he used her and then because her grandmother and cousin say he's and good guy takes him back Why did you have to ruin an otherwise good story? Veronica is not likeable for me I like to see strong independent female characters and she always waited for Michael or someone else to save herWithout her it could've been a better story The ending I think is wishful thinking I doubt the monarchy will be restored now or ever and most likely not to an American given the current climate between the two countries But I gave it a neutral three stars neither loved nor hated it I disliked a couple characters but other than that not too bad of a read
