Serena Chase, reviewer for USA TODAY says:
Lovely lyrical prose sets the scene for Victorian romance, while layered mysteries and a diabolical plot of emotionally — and psychologically — devastating proportions combine to bring the story and its characters to life in The Covered Deep. This novel from debut author Brandy Vallance is beautifully written and showcases a breakout talent that isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of what is “expected” in an inspirational historical romance.
As the protagonist, Bianca embodies innocence … with a touch of fire. When she finds the man for whom she has so hoped — and he returns her affection — her heart flies. But when well-hidden secrets are revealed through the cruel design of the mastermind who brought them together, love is put to the test and the very adventure for which Bianca so longed could devastate her more precious hope for love.
The intrigue is well played and steeply built. At times while reading, it was almost as if I could hear Hans Zimmer’s Sherlock Holmes original motion picture soundtrack seeping out of the shadows. I have no doubt this author (and her book!) will rank among my favorites of 2014. What are you waiting for? Go grab a copy of this multiaward-winning and delightfully Gothic-toned Victorian romance for yourself!
