Review: THE TURNCOAT by Donna Thorland

The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader recently read and reviewed The Turncoat by Donna Thorland for the 2013 American Revolution Reading Challenge.  Here’s an excerpt:

The author of this book has a background in screen writing and there are times you can tell, with some of the dramatic plot twists and turns. Sometimes that can be a bad thing because there is all plot and not enough focus on characters or the history, but in this case I think Thorland got the balance pretty much right, although there was a touch of melodrama.

Diary of an Eccentric also read this for the challenge, check out what she said:

Thorland’s characters are well drawn and complex, especially Bayard Caide, who comes off as evil but has a story that makes you think twice about him.  I loved Kate and Tremayne, the passion and tension between them, and the obvious conflicts that arise between a Rebel and a Redcoat, a plain Quaker and an aristocrat.

Here’s the full review.

Bookworm’s Dinner read this one as well, and here’s an excerpt:

Donna Thorland fashions strong determined women characters pitted against men who exude the arrogance of entitled birth with enduring results.  THE TURNCOAT with plenty of sexual passion and perfidious turns promises plenty of hold your breath moments.

The Maiden’s Court read Thorland’s book as well, and here’s a sample:

Four of the main characters were completely fictional, but engaged seamlessly with the historical characters. Within the first short chapter I was entranced with Kate and Peter. The pages flew and I couldn’t put the book down.

Here’s the full review.
