review: Kirkland Revels

I think this was her first novel and rrevels sets the scene for all of the Victoria Holt genre, as in gothic mystery romance. Kigkland was my first Holt book. Therefore, the setting, the well-crafted plot, and the believable characters all add up to a very good read.

Victoria Holt is always readable even though her plots are often transparent and predictable. Holt has written a decent book, easy to read, always keeps you guessing with underlying values between friends and family. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Honestly I don’t care whether I have figured out who the culprit is in these novels or not.


I really liked Gabriel and Friday and I wished he had a bigger part. A gothic romance setting needs an old house with a perhaps sketchy past, and Gabriel’s home, Kirkland Revels certainly is that. They marry without the knowledge of the groom’s family and friends.


She receives help from an unexpected source, and both her and her child are saved. She didn’t fully trust Simon but she realized she didn’t have a choice.

What sad about it is that death and murder are all too horrid but all too easy going. View all 5 comments.

She was still writing historical fiction under the name of Victoria Holt as well as yet another pseudonym, Jean Plaidy. Gothic goodness, even if a bit predictable. I like the West Yorkshire moorland setting – I’m from East Yorkshire myself – and the way the author brings the second half of the nineteenth-century vividly to life. What an entertaining book!!!

Catherine and Gabriel met one day and began to see each other quite frequently. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Delmater rated it really liked it. To view it, click here.

Of the one ‘bad’ decision she made, I wouldn’t call it stupidness, only really bad timing, as it brought her into peril. It’s the journey that matters. Published April 1st by Sound Library first published In her bedroom- of a monk, the realization that her son is not to survive.

Overall a good read. Enter Gabriel, who rides rvels on his horse literally and helps Catherine save an abused dog from a mean gypsy.

The characters are, of course, flat, and the main motive of the story is to change how the reader feels about them all. Nov 19, Debbie rated it liked it.

I’m two for two for this author so far. Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. This was overdone, in my opinion. The characters are, of course, flat, and the main motive of the s An entertaining story.

The fact that Cathy will bear Gabriel’s child, presumed heir to the Revels, keeps her there, although there are many attempts to frighten her away, the apparitions.

This one I bought at a used book sale at my local library. As usual she sucks the reader into a fully-fleshed world with excitement, danger, and minute character analysis. After 4 years of French Boarding school Catherine returns to her home to her fathers house.
