A Dash of Scandal by Amelia Grey
Grade: C

“Can a startle be good?’ she asked.
“Yes.”
“How so?”
“I’ll show you sometime, but in order for it to work you can’t have a guilty conscience.”

Millicent Blair never thought she would have a season in high English society, The Ton, after twenty years earlier her mother was driven from London by scandal and never returned. An unfortunate accident involving her dear aunt, her aunt’s dog and a flight of stairs make it impossible for her aunt to go to society parti

Delightful and charming, those are the words to describe this book. It was just so sweet and wonderful. I had a grin on my face while reading and I just could not read fast enough. At the end I truly feared for them, even though I know that of course there would be a HEA.

Millicent, our lovely heroine comes to London to help her aunt, who writes a gossip column in secret. But she needs Millie's help and so Millie gets her season but tries to stay under the radar. But what would the book be if she

Di bagian awal buku ini aku tertarik dengan ide penyamaran Milly yang menggantikan bibinya untuk memata-matai setiap pesta dansa di London. Bibi Milly tersebut diam-diam adalah penulis kolom gosip yang paling dinanti dan menjadi topik hangat sosialita London. Sebagai seorang keponakan dari desa, Milly tinggal di rumah bibinya dan diperkenalkan ke pesta dansa oleh sahabat bibi yang tentu saja sekaligus menjadi pendampingnya selama mengorek gosip dari sekitarnya.

Walaupun sebenarnya Milly enggan me

Characters are engaging the plot is delicious and the ending is perfect. The characters are bold, smart and sweet without being annoying. I love that the female character owns up to being attractive to the male character without being melodramatic. I like that the male character keeps his interest to himself and doesn't exploit her and I like that he truly likes the female character and really wants to know all about her.
I also enjoy the small investigative work that the characters have to solve

A Dash of Scandal by Amelia Grey was a quick read for me since once I started reading it, I didn't want to put it down! Grey's main characters--Millicent, Chandler, Aunt Beatrice, and Lord and Lady Heathecoute take us to the days of London's best parties of the Season. Grey throws in a few Shakespeare quotes, some society gossip, some physical chemistry, and a mysterious Mad Ton Thief and the pages just flow. The story is well written, has interesting characters, and doesn't need foul language o ...more

Przyznam szczerze że książka mnie pozytywnie zaskoczyła i zaciekawiła. Nie sięgam często po akurat ten rodzaj książek ale trafiła się więc przeczytałam. Fajnie napisana, przyczepi się można, trochę oklepany temat - Dobra dziewczyna zakochuje się w tym najgorszym i mimo równie oklepanych przeciwności losu żyjemy razem i jesteśmy szczęśliwi - classic happy end - Jednak książka do poczytania i oderwania się od szarej codzienności. Polecam :)
Enjoy!

I liked this romance with a twist of mystery. My favorite parts were the humorous and intelligent exchanges. My only complaint was something Millicent asked Chandler at the end of the book. I didn't find that to be believable, but other than that I enjoyed the book thoroughly.

An okay book (not well-edited which was very distracting) about a girl who starts the story substituting as a gossip columnist for her aunt who tripped over a dog.
The hero is okay too I guess, rogue who's slept with countless women but changes his reckless ways for an intriguing innocent.

Gossip columnist, definitely an interesting premise. But the rest of it is exactly as we expected, for the followers of this genre. The usual Regency romance.
