The Zebra Affaire

5.0 out of 5 starsA love story that defies the odds!
I like to challenge myself from time to time by choosing genres outside of my comfort zone. Historical fiction is probably one of the toughest for me to read because of the statistics and complex story lines found within; but the cover and title of this book pulled me in and I just had to try it.

I was mesmerized from the beginning of this story. The author paints a vivid, controversial scene right away. His character descriptions are thorough and make you feel as if the players are on a stage right in front of you – every single character! The love story has a Shakespearean feel to it that makes your heart ache for the couple, as with Romeo and Juliet. And each love scene is written beautifully.

The pace is steady until about halfway through, where it starts rolling and doesn’t stop until the very end. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a compelling, thought-provoking read.

    I’ve heard of this author but not the book. It sounds interesting! I like fictional history and alternative history but not usually romantic history. You didn’t say what era it takes place in but you did make me curious with your review. Did you leave a link? I didn’t notice one but I’ll look again or look it up in Amazon. Thank you for all of the work you’ve done and time spent organizing this event. I have enjoyed it immensely and discovered many authors I had never heard of before. You rock!

      Sorry about that, Dianna. I forgot to include the hyperlink. The author, Mark, has recently changed the cover for this book, so it may look a little different on Amazon, but the title is the same. Thanks! I hope you enjoy it 🙂
