    Treasure Hunt Amy Snow is an adventure story with family relationships providing the intriguing dynamic The plot is very interesting and a lot of questions are raised that you hope will be addressed in an intelligent and believable way Amy Snow if found as a baby on the estate of Hatville Court and is rescued and grows up a companion soul mate , to the heiress Aurelia Amy isn t however held in any affection by Aurelia s parents, Lord and Lady Vennaway, but Aurelia is insistent on her remaining with her Everyone knows, including Aurelia and Amy that if Aurelia leaves, Amy would need to find somewhere else to live At a point, Aurelia takes an extended trip without Amy, and Amy has to remain in an unwanted house without her What she did when she was away will have repercussions that will affect Amy s life.Unfortunately for both, Aurelia dies as a young woman and leaves Amy alone, unwanted and with a series of letters and directions on how to establish a life away from Hatville Court The messages and directions are cryptic so only Amy can decipher them They lead Amy on a treasure hunt and an exploration of what she has been missing in life The story seems to then run out of steam and we get dragged into a strange paralysis for long periods while she contemplates her ambitions and values The love interests felt unrealistic and just filled me with indifference and her constant ...

    4 starsWow did this one surprise me It s a solidly good book Engaging, suspenseful I hoped for a decent light read with minimal fluff With a hope like that I can also dread being aggravated to the point of abandonment by melodrama, predictability, or general silliness, and that staccato hammering on all the feels, for which I can generally feel nothing better than disappointed Turns out this historical romance is at least as solid on the historical interest and story suspense, and light on romantic manipulation, as was the late Georgette Heyer It reminds me of the better Heyer novels, and even of the romantic classicists like the Brontes and Austen, than of the contemporary historical romances Oh, it had all the makings of a standard historical romantic melodrama It actually should have been eye rolling Not sure, actually, how it avoided that fate It took me quite a while to stop cringing in dre...

    It makes me laugh that women are permitted so few alternatives, and are then punished for resorting to the ones they have This is another one of those books that I ve been sitting on for well over a year, and now that I ve finally gotten around to reading it I could kick myself for not picking it up sooner.Part Jane Austen, part Charles Dickens, and part Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life, this novel is about a baby Amy Snow abandoned on the estate of an aristocratic British family While the estate s owner s are aghast that an orphan would sully their home, their daughter, Aurelia, insists on raising the child, and thus begins a life long friendship.Rees writes lyrically and listening to the audio was a sheer pleasure I was transported to the English countryside and moors of York as Amy Snow traversed the land on a treasure hunt of Aurelia s design to uncover her fri...

    I don t like writing negative reviews, but sometimes as in this case it s necessary If I save just one person from wasting their time on this book then it s all been worth it Truthfully this is a 1 but I gave it a 2 simply because I ve read worse This really should have been a DNF but I have an affliction I m an unadulterated optimist I keep hoping a book will turn itself around Amy Snow did not Two words of description TRITE and terribly BORING When a book centers around a mystery, the reader shouldn t be able to guess it out of the gate I guessed it straight off the bat If you think it s just me, and another reader might not guess the answer, think again Even Amy Snow herself guesses the secret halfway through the book Seriously So the big reveal is majorly anticlimactic, and as Amy says, it s merely confirmation of what she had surmised in the first place It s also a trite Victorian age romance Painfully sappy Amy Snow and her beau the very first man she meets are madly in love in the way a 5th grader might write about love Sh...

    I have to concur completely with a previous reviewer who said they had no idea why this book was getting such good ratings Don t get me wrong, it s not a bad book it s just not a good one It s like toast without butter dry without any flavor.I didn t think Amy Snow was a compelling heroine in any way She didn t interest me She whined, she was boring, she simpered and fell in love for no reason that I could fathom with two different men I was bored with her and done with her halfway through the book, but I pressed forward She was a loyal and caring person, qualities that are endearing if overused in a historical novel I thought the late Aurelia was so much alive even in death than Amy could ever hope to be Aurelia was perhaps a bit cliched, but engaging and fascinating, nonetheless Although she was completely anachronistic In fact, most of the book seemed full of anachronisms.The attitudes displayed in the book regarding sexual relationships and liaisons outside of marriage seemed too modern and lax for Victorian society It seemed half of the character...

    4.5 starsThis was such an entertaining novel I loved both Aurelia and Amy Even though, they weren t sisters by blood, they were sisters of the heart and it warmed my heart to see Aurelia do everything that she could to save Amy Aurelia s parents were awful I just wanted to punch Aurelia s mother They were so mean to Amy I was so happy when Amy set upon her treasure hunt that was set up by Aurelia Through this treasure hunt we were able to get to know Aurelia better through letters that she left behind for Amy It was refreshing to watch Amy mature through this time as well She was such a nice girl and after what she had been through, I was hoping for wonderful things to happen to her We also got to meet some interesting characters through this adventure My favorite Mrs Riverthorpe Now she was quite the character The only reason I didn t give this 5 stars was because of the mystery surrounding Aurelia I figured it out quite soon, ...

    I absolutely adore historical fiction, I love to imagine the rustling dresses, the wonderful clothes, corsets and curtseying and am always fascinated with the lives people led so many years ago The premise to Amy Snow promised not only this, but much, much , and let me tell you this is a debut novel by Tracy Rees, but I would never in million years guess it, as this book is so complete, so brilliant, so thought through It has wonderful characters, strong heroine, mystery, drama, and this humour that I always identify with those times It is also the winner of Richard and Judy s Search for a Bestseller competition, which is not a surprise for me, as this book has it all It s January 1831 The book follows the story of Amy Snow, starting when young Aurelia finds Amy as a new born baby, being left to death in the snow hence her name, Snow As Aurelia is the only Vennaway family s daughter, and she s very hard minded, Amy is allowed to stay in the kitchen, help to everyone For Aurelia she stays her best friend, and the girls share a lot of secrets, spent a lot of time together, ev...

    A promising description of mystery, treasure hunt, and self discovery turned into a slow and somewhat boring read.An abandoned newborn is found naked and blue in the snow on an English estate by an eight year old daughter of the house, Aurelia She insisted on keeping a baby against the wishes of her cold and heartless parents And so, begins the life of Amy Snow.After Aurelia s early death, seventeen year old Amy embarks on a treasure hunt all over England based on letters Aurelia left for her The hunt takes Amy from one clue to another, in a whirl of new acquaintances, friends and romances until it reaches the big secret of Aurelia s life.With 500 pages, the book is way too long and in a need of a visit to an editor for some page trimming and focus I m not sure what it was trying to be A mystery too predictable and solved by the heroine herself in the middle of the story A treasure hunt the clues are so far apart, and so bugged down by other events that I lost my interest.Love story way too sappy and unrealistic for my taste Plus, we get two leading men with not much to recommend one ...

    The prose for me was so lyrical, that I was completely immersed into Amy and Aurelia s story I loved how Aurelia helped Amy become her own woman through the treasure hunt After the way Aurelia s mother and father eventually treated Amy throughout her life, it was so nice to see Amy get the chance to show what a lady she really was and to finally have a happy ending.This was a wonderful historical book that has love and romance but no sex , great ...
