İyi gidiyordu aslında ama yazar sonunu çok oldu bittiye getirmiş.Sonuç bölümü biraz daha geniş yazılsaydı keşke.

Amelia Grey has added everything a historical romance fan could ask for. A dashing hero, an impulsive young lady and reoccurring dead body has all the elements you need for A LITTLE MISCHIEF. This sensual novel is a wonderfully entertaining tale for any Regency historical romance fan!

Miss Isabella Winslowe's Wallflower Reading Society has been a huge success. That is until one day she finds Gretchen, the Earl of Colebrooke's sister, in the garden standing over a dead body. To protect this young

Amelia Grey has thrown together a self proclaimed spinster, a rogue turned honorable earl, and a little mischief. The result is a sweet historical romance with just the right amount of mystery to keep you guessing.

Isabella has figured out that confidence is sexy, that combined with her natural mischievousness turns her into a desirable woman. Daniel has realized that along with the title of Earl he needs a wife, only once he lays eyes on Isabella his idea of the perfect docile wife goes right o

This is the first book that I have read of Amelia Grey. She makes reading a book truly a joy. The characters were really good and there was tension between them as they figured things out. There even was funny parts in the book. I really loved it.

Ah, mystery, murder, men shy of marriage, mercenaries, and a merry mischief-maker all mixed together. The ton is titillated and the gossip grows.

Daniel Fletcher Coldbrooke, The Seventh Earl of Coldbrooke needs a wife. He doesn’t really want a wife, but needs one. As a second son, he’d been a gentleman rogue until tragedy struck his family. Now he needs respectability and an heir. Of course, he wants a submissive, obedient wife. It wou

This book was cute. Really, really cute. I wish I had better adjectives to describe it then that but I don’t because honestly, that is all this book needs. It’s not a hard or consuming or soul gripping read. It’s a light read, perfect for a summer afternoon or a rainy fall day or days when you feel like reading but you don’t want too much depth.

Melody  May (What I'm Reading)
Yesterday I finished A Little Mischief. So, here is what the book is about:

We have a precocious heroine, Miss Isabella Winslowe. At first she didn't purposely seek out trouble, it just land it at her doorstep after her reading group. She finds Gretchen Colebrooke hovering over a body. Both of them believe he's dead, so they decide to involve Gretchen's brother the Earl of Colebrooke.

When Daniel arrives back to Isabella's home to find there's no body and thinking it's a ploy to leg-shackle him. I

This little who-dun-it romance is quite adorable. Part mystery tangled in the web of romance with some spunk and sass that will have you snickering as you try to figure out who did what, when and where. Oh and where did the body go?

Lady Isabella Winslowe is quite the treat amongst the ton and is thought to be a bit on the strange side. A lovely flower who has decided that being a wall flower is not for her and her fellow awkward ladies, Isabella starts a Ladies Reading Society. It's what she doe

This is a re-release from 2003 and a delightful read. This historical has a little bit of suspense and a lot of romance. The characters of Isabella and Daniel are perfect together. The connection they have even from their first scene together jumps right off the page. I love that Isabella seems so strong, confident and loves a good mystery and yet she has decided she should just become a spinster and has never even been kissed. She helps “wallflowers” com

“Well-behaved women seldom make history.” - Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

Amelia Grey delivers a light hearted mystery wrapped around a comedy of manners. Her heroine, Isabella Winslowe, created the Wallflower Society to help shy ladies gain confidence to make their debut among polite society. Instead, she finds Lady Gretchen Colebrooke standing over the very eligible, but very dead, Boswell Throckmorten. Lady Gretchen admits to a secret meeting with her beau – a story that her brother, Lord Daniel Col

Cute is the word, I often use cute about HR, but some just are that cute.

Isabella wants to be spinster, she thinks she will be free that way. And she also holds a club every week. A club named The Wallflower club by certain idiotic members of the ton. But back to Isabella who is outspoken, nice, fun and yes a troublemaker.

In comes Daniel, the brother of a member of her reading group. Oh he is an arrogant ass. At first that is. But we all know they will fall in love..eventually. But before that t
Daniel Colebrooke, Earl of Colebrooke, is not happy with Isabella Winslowe. First, she's invited his sister to her salons which are being dubbed a haven for wallflowers. Now, Isabella has brought his sister back to his home with the ridiculous story that she's killed a man she was meeting in Isabella's garden. Well, the man isn't dead. At least not this time. But when the man ends up with a knife in his chest and Daniel's sister standing over him, that's when things start to get complicated.

I read the book titled A Little Mischief by Amelia Grey and it bit of mystery and romance. I usually like more depth in reading historical romances. This story didn’t quite give it to me. The characters seemed kind of ho hum. Isabella Winslow and Daniel Colebrook who are the love interest are going around searching for clues in a murder. I really didn’t feel that they would take it upon themselves to investigate a murder of a peer, when a family member should have done it. I would like more sexu ...more

If I could give this book 2.5 stars, I would. I thought the story was pretty good, and I liked the main characters. However, the writing seemed a little clunky (a touch too much telling rather than showing, perhaps?).

This is the first book I've read by this author; I'll probably read a more recent book of hers and see if the editing has improved.

This was a quick little read. Because it was so short they really had to go from being annoyed to being attracted but I loved that they kept kissing and denying that this was something that they should be doing. The little murder mystery that was in between the relationship was great in keeping them together. I will definitely look for others by AG.

This was a charming, light read that kept me smiling. It was nice to read about a heroine I could relate to: spunky, defending others, independent, and curious. It's a rather short book, so the romance moves quickly, and the murder mystery adds to the fun.
