The Lady in Question
How did this young lady's reputation become so questionable?
Once she was lovely, respectable Miss Del ...more
"3.5 stars" I’ve really struggled with Victoria Alexander’s books thus far. I genuinely want to like them, and there are certainly things I have liked about them. But despite that, the majority of the ones I’ve read so far have only rated in the 3-3.5 star range for me, which is just an OK read on my ratings scale. Unfortunately The Lady in Question was yet another of her books that didn’t quite make it out of that OK range. I liked the characters pretty well. Both the hero and heroi ...more
Seems Delia wanted the exciting grand adventure and found it in the flirting a well known rogue, Charles Wilmont. She is soon married to avoid a scandal and within four days, a widow.

It started well, and had an excellent finish, but felt a little long in through the middle. At around the 50% mark, the action seemed to slow down noticeably, and there was quite a lot of dialog that didn't seem to advance the plot. This minor flaw was very excusable, ...more

What Delia doesn't know is that as an agent for the Crown, St. Stephens has been posing as a butler in her own house.
This one was really good. I loved the interplay between the ...more
2.5*... didn’t hold my interest, so I probably missed the main points.
I’m not really sure why everyone falls in love with Delia at the drop of a hat, not sure how they developed a relationship in a week, and REALLY not sure why there was such a convoluted story for Tony to be in her house. I think I’d have rather read about Wilmont & Mrs. Miller instead.
Identical twins, sensible Delia and mischievous Cassandra Effington were the most delicious debutantes to ever waltz across a London ballroom. They looked alike in every way . . . but no one ever expected Delia to be the one to get into trouble . . . How did this young lady's reputation become so questionable? Once she was lovely, respectable Miss Delia Effington, but an impulsive decision—and subsequent disaster—forces Delia to retire from society. Until one night, desperate for diversion, she...more

Picked this one up from the library and while I enjoyed the story, I doubt this would be one I'd run to get a copy of to ke ...more
I really rated this 3.5 but I am still learning how to do my ratings here.
New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander was an award winning television reporter until she discovered fiction was much more fun than real life. She turned to writing full time and is still shocked it worked out.
Since the publication of her first book in 1995, ...more
