    1. You can find my original review at my blog The Literary Snob.I m back with another book review Okay so today I m reviewing Fleur De Lis by Isolde Martyn I d first like to state that I just re read this book for the first time in 7 years and I was reminded of all the reasons why I loved reading this book the first time around This book is by an Australian author, and I actually stumbled upon this book in a hotel gift shop in the Whitsundays Islands in Australia back in 2005 I liked the cover, I r [...]


    2. 4.5Loved it I m not much one for historical fiction in general, but this was brilliantly written, and had me on the edge of my seat and constantly engaged The best thing about this novel was the heroine She really had character and was so assertive and glorious in her role It s rare I come across a heroine I take to so well, but Fleur really hit all the right spots for me Definitely an author to read again My only niggle was between the 65% ish to the 75% ish part The pace shoots ahead here and [...]


    3. This book was an interesting read I love reading book about strong independant women who fall in love mixed in with a bit of history I learnt alot about the French revolution from this book.


    4. Well written and entertaining as Isolde Martyn s books reliably are The brave and bewitching Fleur fights to survive in Paris during the very dangerous period of The French Revolution.



    5. Sound holiday reading France under the rule of the Committees Girondins versus Jacobins, Marat and Robespierre, where any one with any kind of link to the Ancien Regime or the aristocracy is immediately under brutal suspicion There is the obligatory romance, literally entwined in a pet python, but quite engaging, without much need for deep use of the brain cells, and well enough written to hold the reader in its thrall to the end.


    6. This is a wonderful romantic historical fiction set in the Reign of Terror French Revolution era The main heroine Fleur is pretty, brave, strong and smart who doesn t love such a female character There s lots of intrigue, romance and humor there to keep every historical fiction romance readers entertained One of my most favorite books
