Review: I was lost at the beginning of Curse of the Gypsy as this is the third in a series and I hadn’t read the prior ones to find out more about the storyline of Lady Anne and the Marquis of Darkefell or Tony as Anne calls him.
Ms. Simpson keeps us spinning as we go back and forth between the two. Tony who wears his love for Anne on his sleeve has asked her to marry him and she has turned him down. But that doesn’t stop him.
Anne trying to run her dad’s estate and deal with not only all the servants but the gypsies camped by the woods and the entire town folk. There are problems that arise in any community and this is no different. The people in town are blaming the gypsies because things have been happening and who else do you blame but the ones that are different. Then you have people coming down with some mysterious illness and no connection…a Tony look-a-like…and on and on.
Anne isn’t the only one with problems. Tony finds unsolved murders and no one to blame. Wanting/Missing Anne brings him back to her home and between the two they are able to start piecing together things and solving the mystery or should I say mysteries.
I found myself lost at times as I jumped back and forth between Anne’s mystery and Tony’s mystery. There was allot to keep track of. The characters were kind of just there and although Anne and Tony were the main ones I couldn’t get a hold of them as people. They seemed flat.
However, having said that; I feel that if I read the first book I may better be able to understand them a little more.
The overall idea of the story is not bad, would love to have had more of the gypsies in the story. After all it is ‘Curse of the Gypsy’…
