The Devil’s Web by Mary Balogh

This one is tough to review. The story was deep, thoughtful, full and serious.

Madeline and James met in a prior book. They didn’t like each other much. Circumstance throws them together repeatedly to make bad decisions about one another.

The book takes place over roughly a year or more. The relationship grows and crumbles and changes. James is mean – for a reason. Madeline is likable, but she lets him get away with some annoying shit.

As always I loved the side stories. And all of the series was neatly tied up here. I may later decide this was a 4 star read, but some of James’s behavior left a bad taste in my mouth. Still adore MB for characters that are so incredibly vivid – this book felt real for me.
