#Review of The Gilded Cage by Lucinda Gray

After growing up on a farm in Virginia, Walthingham Hall in England seems like another world to sixteen-year-old Katherine Randolph. Her new life, filled with the splendor of upper-class England in the 1820s, is shattered when her brother mysteriously drowns. Katherine is expected to observe the mourning customs and get on with her life, but she can't accept that her brother's death was an accident. 

A bitter poacher prowls the estate, and strange visitors threaten the occupants of the house. There's a rumor, too, that a wild animal stalks the woods of Walthingham. Can Katherine retain her sanity long enough to find out the truth? Or will her brother's killer claim her life, too?

Lucinda Gray is the pseudonym of an American novelist who lives in New York.

It pains me to say this but WHY do all the pretty books suck??  This one if you decide to skip it you wont be missing out on much.  This one although I really did try to love it just didn't work out at all. 

So this is going to be split up into two sections.  What I liked and well what I didn't.

What I liked:

I loved the setting!  The author did a wonderful job with the time period!  I loved the characters as well.  Kat was very determined and was a great character.

What I didn't like:

The story felt blah to me.  It felt very choppy and kinda all over the place.

The other thing was there was a slight romance but none of it went anywhere really.

There was also instal-love and although I think for this book it really didn't work out so well.
