In Jennifer Moore's A Place for Miss Snow, Miss Snow's world of chaperoning and hiding behind a mask changes when she meets Alexandros Metaxas, a greek spy, who is working to recruit groups for a revolution. Will Miss Snow survive a world of pirates, revolution, blood vendettas, mortal danger and unexpected romance?
I waited a long time on the library waiting list for this book. I had high expectations since I really enjoyed Lady Helen Finds Her Song and Becoming Lady Lockwood. At first, I was a little disappointed in the novel. I struggled liking the character Alexandros Metaxas, one of the main heroes. As a reader, I knew the author was setting him up to be the main love interest, but he seemed untrustworthy and I didn't like the idea that he was encouraging others to go to war without experience in it himself. He seemed like he was more interested in himself and his ideals than others. Moore tried to explain his actions and give reasons behind them, but it still made it hard to like him. I gradually liked him more as his background story was explained more, but he's not my favorite hero. I did enjoy the other characters especially Miss Snow and Elena. I liked how they were described and portrayed. Moore does a great job with cultural and historical references to Greece. It made it easy to visualize the setting. It's not my favorite work by Moore, but it was still an entertaining read. To learn more, click here.
