Book Review: Unexpected Rewards by Jane McGarry

My Review Great Story and Superb Writing Unexpected Rewards has all the elements of an endearing story amidst a historical backdrop. Combine this with great writing from the author and you have a book that's unputdownable! I truly enjoyed reading every part of the story. The female lead, Olivia, is someone that I find myself rooting for throughout the story. She is quite a loveable lead -- a girl with a pure heart, having noble intentions, but is a newcomer in kingdom and kingdom politics. Faced with different odds that seem to come one after the other, she has to find ways to overcome each one -- from fending off others who are determined to disrupt her love with Prince Liam, to having to gain the respect of the King and the Queen, and even to prove the innocence of a close friend. I also enjoyed the story writing -- it was easy to follow, interesting with no dull moments. I realized much later that this is book 2 of a series, but there was never any confusing moment and you coul…
