Book Review: Lady Emma's Campaign by Jennifer Moore
Author: Jennifer Moore
Enjoyment Rating: ***
Source: Digital Copy
Content Alert: Some war-related violence and torture
Lady Emma Drake has had more than her share of marriage proposals from eligible, decent men. But, try as she might, she can't get over her love for Captain Sidney Fletcher, her brother's best friend, who thinks of her as a little sister. When Emma gets word first that Sidney is dead, and then that he may actually be a prisoner of war in Spain, she steals away onto her brother's ship to help save him, eventually ending up as a prisoner of war herself. The main action of the story takes place in Spain, as Emma and Sidney journey to safety, a journey fraught with danger.
Lady Emma's Campaign is an exciting novel, with lots of action. There were parts of the story I enjoyed a lot (the beginning, in particular). However, the campaign itself dragged a bit, and I was eager for the couple to return to safety and to find a way to live happily ever after.
