Mistaken by Karen Barnett

Mistaken: First Impressions Are Never What They Seem by Karen Barnett

Abingdon Press (July 2, 2013) 352 pages

My Rating: 4/5 stars

My Thoughts:

Laurie works, and then comes home to take care of her drunken father. Her brother has got himself tangled with the wrong crowd, and now two new men have entered her life. She's tired of being let down by the men in her life, and she's confused about the possibility of love.

Mistaken takes place in 1920s Port Angeles, Washington and revolves around Prohibition. I enjoyed getting lost in this time period. Although I love reading historical fiction, this isn't a time period I travel to very often.

The characters, especially Laurie, won me over quickly. I enjoyed watching them grow. As the title says, first impressions are never what they seem, and that's a big lesson for everyone to learn.

I greatly enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to see what Barnett writes next!
