Margaret Tanner is a talented author who sets her tales in the wilds of Australia. While the themes are pretty much what you expect from a good romance the sweeping vistas and the history of this country from all the way around the world from me has been a great set of tales to read. I have reviewed two so far

This review is from: A Wicked Deception (Kindle Edition)Readers of historical romances generally find stories set either in the wild west of the United States or in Britain. This lovely tale is set for a large part in Australia. With the detail Ms Tanner added the story comes alive with the sights, sounds and flavors of that wild land. She teaches you a bit of history while telling a tale of love, betrayal and classism.
While at times you want to take her heroine and shake her soundly for the pure silly innocence she has, you come to care for the characters. You feel sadness at the loses they survive and happiness at the neat ending to the tale. A good read for a lazy afternoon.
