The Tide Watchers is part spy novel part adventure novel part history lesson and a little bit of romance It takes place in England and France during Napoleon’s rise Our hero is in France trying to learn what he can about the soon to be Emperor’s plans and to try and find his employer’s daughter Lisbeth She ran away with a French emigre against the wishes of her parents and he did not turn out to be the romantic man she thought he was so now she finds herself working at a tavern and branded a whore by all in the townDuncan finds Lisbeth and realizes she could be a help on his mission but is a little reluctant to put her in danger Lisbeth is not like any other woman he has ever met; she is intelligent forthright and she speaks her mind She agrees to work with Duncan and then she wants to go homeThe story is a good one and the writing kept me very engaged There is a lot of history to draw from in this time period and Ms Chaplin weaves her fictional players in with historical characters very well I will admit to feeling at times in the beginning like I dropped into the second book of a series but I soon figured out who everyone was I believe the author was trying to slowly release information about her characters but it left me a bit confused at times My biggest complaint and the reason for the 35 rating instead of a 4 is the ending It was obscenely abrupt In fact I wondered if my advance reading copy was missing a chapter it was that jarring an ending I am guessing there will be a seuel – if not so much was left hanging it was really crazy I understand leaving the readers anxious for another book but this was than that – it truly felt like information was missing35

Lisa Chaplin Ë The Tide Watchers KINDLE

The Tide WatchersComplicated by the wily Napoleon Bonaparte The British believe he is planning an attack and Duncan is sent to search for signs of invasion on the French coast where he draws dangerously close to adventurous and unpredictable LisbethA sensational new invention may shift the tide of a French victory A brilliant and eccentric American inventor named Robert Fulton has devised a deadly weapon that can decimate an enemy's fleet To protect English ships Tidewat Suspenseful espionage novel set mainly in Napoleonic France with a feisty down to earth clever heroine Lisbeth Sunderland daughter of a baronet to escape a hated marriage elopes with a charming Frenchman and returns to France Subseuently she discovers the hateful persona hidden under his mask of elegance and suaveness He takes their baby son and deserts her; she is reduced to working as a tavern maid With promises to retrieve her son and to return them to England she agrees to help Duncan a King's Man or spy codename Tidewatcher Under his direction she infiltrates the house of Robert Fulton eccentric American inventor of a type of submarine as housekeeper and apprentice Lisbeth and Duncan set out to foil plots of Napoleon's invasion of England and of the king's assassination Boney has already survived a failed assassination himself There are several different subplots The story really didn't pick up steam for me till about p 147 Amid episodes and dialogue that displayed the author's genuine talent there were long stretches of confusing action For instance I saw no point to the Lady Georgiana subplot There were other instances I felt the novel could have been shortened and tightened up Sometimes the novel descended into melodramaI liked both hero and heroine also Mark the Cockney cabin boy The story just ended Perhaps the author has a seuel in the works?
