Book Review - Lady in the Mist by Laurie Alice Eakes

Publisher's blurb:
By virtue of her profession as a midwife, Tabitha Eckles is the keeper of many secrets. Dominick Cherrett is a man with his own secret to keep: namely, why he, a British aristocrat, is on American soil working as an indentured servant.
In a time when relations between America and England rest on the edge of a knife, Tabitha and Dominick cross paths, leading them on a journey of intrigue, threats, public disgrace, and . . . love. But can Tabitha trust Dominick? Finding true love seems impossible in a world set against them.
With stirring writing that draws you directly into the story, Lady in the Mist takes you on the thrilling ride of love's discovery.

My review:  I was really intrigued by the summary of this book. It was tad difficult to get into and pretty slow paced. I did like the two main characters, however I think the book had far too much filler. The plot was good but would have suited a much shorter book. I could summarize the book in a few pages.

I also found Cherrett's continuous need for redemption a tad off-putting. There were also several scenes in the book that  I found to be unrealistic and viewed through rose-coloured glasses. I would still recommend this book, others may enjoy it more than I did.
