This is a clean, charming Regency Romance. I have always enjoyed Lansdowne's humor and characters. They usually have some issues that they are dealing with, which makes them feel more real.

Second of two I tried by this author.Not to my taste. Too much goofy introspection by the characters. Very wordy. Kind of silly. There was a lot of here and thereing and not much romance with the main characters. Nothing particularly wrong with it I suppose if these things don't bother you. I read the first half and skimmed the second half.

I love this author and this story! Both are in between 'Georgette Heyer' and the modern era with more sex and updated dialog. This story was a mystery with a little romance and some humor. Although the mystery wasn't up to Agatha Christie standards, it did move the story along. I am looking forward to the rest of the trilogy.
