For Book Blogger Appreciation Week, today's theme is "...share with us a book or genre you tried due to the influence of another blogger. What made you cave in to try something new and what was the experience like?"
A book I tried because another blogger liked it so well is The Gentlemen's Conspiracy by Nick Daniels.
I enjoy historical suspense novels, but I thought this novel might possibly be "point-driven." As in, the whole reason an author wrote a novel was to Make A Point and making that point drives the novel. But this novel sounded interesting, so I was wobbling on the fence until another blogger reviewed it and gave this novel a very enthusiastic review.
I'm glad I gave this book a chance. I didn't have anything to worry about as it's a well-written character-driven story. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I'd recommend it to both men and women.
