#BookReview: When We Caught Fire by Anna Godbersen

About the Book:

It’s 1871 and Emmeline Carter is poised to take Chicago’s high society by storm. Between her father’s sudden rise to wealth, and her recent engagement to Chicago’s most eligible bachelor, Emmeline has it all. 

But she can’t stop thinking about the life she left behind, including her childhood sweetheart, Anders Magnuson. Fiona Byrne, Emmeline’s childhood best friend, is delighted by her friend’s sudden rise to prominence, especially since it means Fiona is free to pursue Anders herself. 

But when Emmeline risks everything for one final fling with Anders, Fiona feels completely betrayed.

As the summer turns to fall, the city is at a tipping point: friendships are tested, hearts are broken, and the tiniest spark might set everything ablaze. 

Sweeping, soapy, and romantic, this is a story about an epic love triangle—one that will literally set the city ablaze, and change the lives of three childhood friends forever.

My Review: I LOVE Historical Fiction but this one I did not like at all. I swear all this week it has been books that I have hated. I really hope that something this week I will fully fall in love with.  This one I am sad to say was just the story itself. I really loved the characters but the way the story went it was just boring.  This one did a love triangle for no real reason and part way through the book if you are paying attention you will get told the ending which was a real let down.  

Do I Recommend this book? No slow and boring
