About the Author
I have always been interested in the early 19th century and specifically in Romance and Mystery novels. One year I received a plantation style dollhouse for my birthday, which inspired me to sit at my computer and type this story 'Curiosity'.

“Curiosity,” by Constance Smith, is a diamond in the rough. As a writer myself, plot devices rarely surprise me, but two twists in Smith’s book caught me [delightfully] off guard. Additionally, this story provides a pleasant view of everyday life during the early 1800's. Were it not for some choppy paragraphs and errant punctuation, and a startling switch to present tense in the last few chapters – all easily overlooked – it would be a perfect read, and certainly worth the dollar purchase price.
The previous review is false, it was posted 2034 days ago and the book just came out today. That review is not for this book. This is a great story and worth the read.
This book drew my attention being a historical novel set in a time period I love reading. The detail the author gives to give the reader a clear visual sense of the time period with regards to home life, architecture, attire, and mannerisms are excellent. Her vocabulary was effective in creating a sense of mystery and suspense, as well. However, attention to grammar and the flow of events needs to be addressed in future books.
