Price of Privilage by Jessica Dotta ~ Review

Price of Privilege (Price of Privilege, #3)My Review:

This book picks up where the last one left off, Julia is now married to her beloved Reverend Auburn, but her problems are far from over, she must face the consequences of the choices she has made. Macy still is pressing his claim, playing the spurned, devoted husband. Julia is charged with bigamy. Will she get the happily ever after that she's dreamed of?

I absolutely fell in love with the first two books in the series, but for some reason I truly struggled through this one. It might have been my sporadic reading habits, but I found the first half of the book rather slow in pace, and I felt as if I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. Because I knew that when something did happen, it would be very bad.

My heart ached for Isaac. If you have been following my reviews of this series, then you probably know that I was very much #teamisaac , throughout. I loved his mystery, and kindnesses, he is an honorable man, very much trapped in a similar web to Julia's and I felt that he had helped her so much, with understanding her new life, and even relating to her in a more approachable level about her faith. I could go on about how much I admire Isaac, but that would only add to the tragedy.

Julia has grown over the series, into a strong young woman, who knows what she wants and is willing to go against the grain to get it. The stakes are higher than she can imagine,
will it all be worth it in in the end?

Overall, this is a gothic novel, full of mystery, and intrigue. I can't say that this was my favorite of the series, I much preferred the previous books, I felt they held a more present tension. I liked the addition of Mr. Jameson, who was ever so charming with unfailing wit and words of truth. This seems a tale worthy of a BBC mini-series, a twisting drama for fans of gothic mystery and romance!

  1. This is my next book to read from my TBR pile. Honestly, I loved the first book and was mixed about the second book and now, based on your review....I'm afraid for Isaac! He was my favorite character in the last book and I still like Mr. Macy! I was disappointed that Julia ended up with Edward :( I'm afraid to start reading the third book but I do love the author's writing style.

    1. I know! Isaac was and still is my very favorite, I just felt that he was a better fit for Julia "right now", whereas Edward was more in the past, and has a lesser presence. I love the author and the characters, but I completely understand how you feel!


I love to hear from you!
