Blog Tour: At Her Fingertips by Kellyn Roth

I’m excited to participate in the blog tour for At Her Fingertips. But you’re not here to listen to me talk about myself… 😀 So here’s more about At Her Fingertips.

Title: At Her Fingertips

Series: The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy, Book #3

Genres: Historical Fiction, Historical Romance, Women’s Fiction

Era: Late Victorian (1880)

Release Date: July 17th, 2021

About the Book

She’s willing to do anything to follow her plan.

Debutante Alice Knight is ready for her first social season in London. She’s determined to impress society and her mother with an affluent match, at last escaping her past and embracing a future of her own making.

Peter Strauss, an American reporter visiting England, isn’t exactly what Alice had in mind. However, his friendship proves invaluable as Alice faces the challenges of her debut. Almost immediately, she attracts the attention of a well-born gentleman—perfect save for the simple fact that he’s not a Christian.

The life she longs for is finally at her fingertips, but between her own heart and the convictions of her faith, she isn’t sure she ought to grasp it.

It’s available on Amazon, or you can check it out on Goodreads.

My Thoughts

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

A confession before I begin … I’m more of a suspense novel reader than a reader of English historical fiction, so some of my comments will reflect that. 🙂

Characters: Both Peter and Alice were complex, well-developed characters. Their personalities were defined and guided the majority of their decisions. I did think Peter could’ve used a couple more flaws, but that might just be my sin nature wanting company 😀 Alice’s spiritual state confused me at times. In the beginning, I almost understood her as not being a Christian, but later on, she was presented as quite devout. I did like seeing Alice’s character arc throughout the book. Out of all the side characters, Nettie and Ivy were my favorites.

Language: Clean.

Moral: I appreciated that this Christian novel was actually Christian. Too often, I read supposedly Christian books where God isn’t mentioned much at all. I’m happy to report this wasn’t the case with this novel. Now, onto the moral … At Her Fingertips contained themes of marriage, love, dealing with emotions, and following God’s plan. I really liked the emphasis on Christians only marrying other Christians.

Plot: This is where my suspense-reading self struggled. The plot seemed a bit slow, and I needed a little more action. I don’t think, however, this will bother readers who enjoy historical fiction set in this time period. This character-driven plot contained a gentle romance, family relationships, multiple love interests, and old family secrets.

Romance: Clean. I was a little surprised by how quickly Alice’s change of heart toward Peter took place.

Writing: Kellyn Roth has an easy-to-read writing style that worked well for this story. Unlike the writing style found in some books in this genre, her writing style isn’t stuffy or overwhelmingly poetic. The dialogue seemed natural for the time period, and readers of the classics will appreciate all the quotes from those works that Kellyn included through Peter’s perspective.

Overall: At Her Fingertips was a well-researched, well-written novel that will be enjoyed by readers of Christian fiction, historical romance, and historical fiction.

And before I forget … I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest thoughts.
