Ho letto questo libro solo perché aveva la stessa copertina del nostro eh eh Motivo frivolo, lo so. Ora, non è un libro meraviglioso, la Simmons ne ha fatti di migliori e di molto, ma l'idea di partenza è interessantissima, una ragazza che vuole riportare in auge una SPA,o meglio una stazione termale in epoca regency! Peccato poi che questo spunto moderno e imprenditoriale nel libro venga quasi completamente sorvolato e si indaghi semplicisticamente su un tesoro nascosto di non ben definita natu ...more

Normally I love Deborah Simmons but I confess I was disappointed with this one. So out spirited heroine Glory decides to re-open the pump room that has been in her family for years. Someone however doesn't want this to happen and she is plagued with vandalism and accidents. Duke Westfield , standing in for the local magistrate is on hand to help solve the mystery and fall in love.

So let's start with the positives - The heroine Glory - She's strong, capable and feisty. The plot - I liked the myst

Whether Queen’s Well is magical for romance or cursed is of little consequence if Glory Sutton fails to reopen the long closed spa. Another little issue is “The Queen’s Gift” that some people make light of and others are deadly serious about. The elusive culprit keeps everyone on edge, but not all for the same reason. The Dowager Duchess is not so much concerned about Queen’s Well reopening as she is about the continual mishaps messin

Relecture à l'occasion de sa réédition
Une romance historique "old school Harlequin" qui ne plaira pas à toutes. Personnellement, j'adore Deborah Simmons et j'ai retrouvé avec ce livre ce qui fait que j'aime ce qu'elle écrit: personnages sympathiques, histoire toute simple et mignonne. Et qui dit "old school Harlequin", dit 0 scène hot.
Entertaining story about a old-style spa that two siblings are trying to renovate and some shenanigans around it.

Many layers of problems and a good romance.

Love Deborah! She does Romance the right way. I do miss the old writing, but her new style is just as great. Characters are solid and there is no cat and mouse. AWESOME!
