Once upon a time, they eloped. But then dashing Scotsman Merrick MacLachlan accepted payment from Lady Madeleine's father to have the marriage annulled. Or did he?
Two times, Maddie has wed. Once for love,...more
This is definately my favourite in the Sins, Lies & Secrets trilogy, although the other two were good, espcially One Little Sin, I have been most drawn to Merrick MacLachlan from the beginning and looked forward to finding out about his secrets and past.
This was basically a book about a massive misunderstanding that has kept the two lovers apart from 13 years. I don't normally like books that are based on such things, but I found myself really enjoying reading this and sympathy on b...more
In One Little Sin, three wealthy & titled bad boys have their fortunes told my a gypsy fortune teller. They scoff at her prediction that their reckless, careless past behavior is about to catch up to each of them and call them to account.
In Three Little Secrets, dashing Scotsman and architect Merrick MacLachlan comes face to face with the woman he eloped with 13 years earlier ... and hasn't seen in 13 years.
Liz Carlyle is so talented with wea...more
It was a little long, and perhaps a little could have been cut, but not much. It flowed very nicely and I liked the story. I also liked the characters.
I would definitely recommend this book to historical romance lovers. A small bit of this book takes place in Scotland and the...more
Whilst this is really a story of all things mis-placed: love; pride; trust in a parent. Eventually, it just proves that love will win through and can overcome the enormous hurdles put in its way by the things that were mis-placed.
This engaging and intriguing story by one of my favourite authors, Liz Carylyle, engaged me all the way through.

Thirteen years later they met again; Madeleine is a widow with a troubled twelve year old son and Merrick is a cold, heartless business man. While trying to find help of Geffory (th...more
The writing was great & it kept me up all night because I was waiting and waiting for Merrick to figure it out. I really really didn't like Maddie's excuses. They just seemed petty.
This was my intro to Liz Carlyle book, and I think I may read more. Not this series though if they are all back and forth like this one was. It drug out way too long in some areas.
Maybe it's me & I'm just mad I stayed up all night for this! I was trying to get a bad...more
3 1/2 stars
I liked this mostly for Liz Carlyle's writing style.
She's always been one of my favorites.
But, this book and trilogy, didn't do it for me.
I didn't find much to like about either H or h and they fought and bickered the entire book.
The ending, when they finally come together was sweet but too short and very rushed
Their reconciliation was a little contrived but I enjoyed the book nonetheless.
The awful truth about novelists is that we are mostly dull, introverted homebodies who only write in order to live our fantasies vicariously. I came to writing rather late in life, and I’m still amazed I can get paid for doing something I love, and that I get to stay home while I do it.
