I was so excited to receive Scent of Lilacs to review! After having read Words Spoken True last fall, I was looking forward to sitting down and having a great weekend read. I must say that it took me quite a while to really get into the book. I found myself skimming the pages, looking for the next plot twist or story line. I started to enjoy the book about three quarters through when the story line really started to develop and the characters finally became like family. I really do not like to give negative reviews and when I searched through some other reviews I noticed that it seems women really love the book or struggle through it. I also noticed that this book was originally published in 2005, and was re-released this year and I think that Ann's writing style has matured and deepened since the publishing of this book and I am looking forward to her new release this summer.
I would give this book 2 stars.
