I enjoyed this novel a lot. Quinn always develops very witty characters and the banter between Marcus and Honoria is great. It's intimate, heart felt and unpretentious. Marcus is not your typical alpha male which makes it a refreshing read. He is introverted with a sly wit that he shows with Honoria. I love the scenes when they are eating cake or remembering old times. Honoria is a crack up but Marcus steals the show.
The pacing may seem slow and it really is just about moments with these two characters that are nicely woven together.
