I did not like this book, and I've summed up all my dislike into three reasons, two of which pretty much relate to poor characterization and one to some odd, latent misogyny.

1. ”Intelligent” characters did not behave intelligently.

Both the male and female leads in this one are set up as intelligent characters. Willow is described as being very clever and excellent at solving puzzles and mysteries. She is a member of the Ladi
Mixed feelings about this one - language-wise it flows well, with good historical detail and original characters - but found plot lacking. It makes you expect more of a plot than it delivers, so all the detective stuff becomes silly. The hero is also a chauvinist with frankly insulting attitudes that she takes in stride, while herself somewhat of a hypocrite given all the good intentions that come to nothing, they both seem to think in circles about the same stuff, while its blatantly obvious so ...more

Fabulous, entertaining and completely wonderful.
What would you do to prove your family's innocence?
Upon meeting Detective James Sterling, Willow can't help but inform him that she is the one sending him letters about how he is doing his detecting wrong by breaking the rules!
So a wager is born, on his next case he and Willow will go head to head on trying to solve the case, granted James hadn't believed that Willow would actually agree to such a wager and then for a murder to happen the very nex

Another very nice book from Robyn DeHart. Her style is light and fun, no heavy drama here, but it is enjoyable to read. Rather like eating a chocolate truffle. It is a shame that she has not yet been able to finish this series. I hope she can write Charlotte's story in the future.
This is a great book by this author. I have a couple of her books on my own shelf TBR. Looking forward to that. I closed this book with a smile - always a good indication that I enjoyed the book. Also it kept me engrossed so that I read it in one sitting.

I didn't like the hero. When he first meets the heroine, he thinks that she must be mentally unbalanced because she is unaffected by his charm. Seriously, buddy? You're that arrogant? The only reason a woman doesn't swoon over you is because she's insane?
3rd in the series and a great one. I loved that there was the opposites attracted theme. I hope to see the Charlotte story soon but heard she might not complete it. :(
Quite good. Was undecided at 1st but 1/3 thru it started getting better. Slightly above average & I'm keeping an eye out for this author.

A charming read but that is all I can say. It certainly looked promising but it did not deliver.
