An Improper Companion has an impossibly accomplished main character. She is modest, with multiple talents such as making perfect flower arrangements, reading aloud just like an audiobook reader to amuse her employer, courteous to the staff of the great country house. Everyone loves her and she even knows how to catalogue library books with the Dewey Decimal System in her head.

When she faces great danger and doesn't fall into a faint despite the evil that she encounters, she is just the most per

I read this a few months ago, but at this point the name's are only vaguely familiar and I cannot recall anything from the plot. Not exactly a glowing recommendation for this book. I'm pretty such it was one of my Buffer Books. That is the say, it was good enough to distract from beginning to end but is meant only as an interlude until something better comes along. Perhaps, book two in the series will refresh my memory. If it does, I will edit this review accordingly.

Now off to A Wealthy Widow
Daniel, Earl of Cavendish is a vetern of the Peninsular War and is drawn into the investigation of the abduction of some upper class women. Also involved is his mother's companion Miss Elizabeth Travers, surrounded by scandal already she and he find themselves drawn together.

Fun read. The characters sparkle and I found them great fun. Scratch the surface and things don't quite gel but as a park your brain read it's quite readable.

The book was fine if you like protective earls and slightly boring companions with mundane plots. It was not one of the best books I have read so far; however, it was a nice book to read in the midst of until I get something really good. The plot was slightly blurry and this is not really a book that really shines.

Not your average light Regency fare, it deals with darker elements of the era... satanic rituals, white slavery etc. An ok read, the writing is a bit stilted and tame for my usual taste. But am willing to finish the trilogy to see how it all ends.
