The plot is a bit far fetched but Caroline is one of JQ's funniest heroines and Blake, although not the usual "JQ" rake is just as witty as her other heroes, but much more moody because of his broken heart. They make an excellent pairing. I also love James and can't wait to read the next book "How to Marry a Marquis" to read his story. Special mention to Perriwick the butler as well. I simply adore him.

This novel contains none of the witty situations and dialogue of Ms Quinn's other books (The Bridgerton series, 10 Things I Love About You).
The plot is pretty sketchy and the characters rather two dimensional. I love dialogue but there's too much here.
Not her best. The second book in the series How To Marry A Marquis is much better.

was just so funny in places that i was laughing. blake mistakes caroline for a spy and its just down hill from there on. he takes her back to his house and promptly ties her to his bed!!!!! further giggles when blake's sister arrives and the whole story comes out. throughout all this caroline and blake have fallen in love and just to round off the adventure they uncover a smuggling operation. was just so silly ans funny. just the thing to unwind with!!!!

I laughed and laughed and laughed, I thought that this book was one of the best I have ever read and I have read lots! Julia Quin has a FANTASTIC sense of humour! Oh and the storyline was great!

A wonderful book from one of my favourite authors, she never fails to keep me entertained and I haven't found a hero that I don't like yet.

Once again Julia Quinn attempts mortal danger in her work, and once again ends up creating a heroin is more a moronic and spoilt brat than a couragious leed character. When Quinn keeps to shat she does best ie, books that focus on the romance and relationship such as the Bridgerton series for the most part she excells at enthralling and engaging writting. But she just cannot do suspense and danger - it just comes across badly written and annoying. And as for the hilarity other readers found in this book, I found Caroline to be little more than a spoilt and petulant brat, quite literally stamping her little foot when she doesn't get her way. She comes across as manipulative (crying when Blake calls her a plague? Come on people!) and just down right stupid (even if I ignore the downward spiral into idiocy with the whole epionage theme and breaking into Pewitt's house, going in after them to talk about TEA made me through the book across the room).

This book in general is badly written with too much forced wit in it, by which I mean the sort of thing you see in an American day time TV show. You can almost hear the tinned laughter with this book. And other people have said it; there is just no chemistry between the two leeds. One minute they having an infantile argument (usually started by Caroline being a contrary little madam and spilling something/ breaking something/ being a prat, and then sulking when she is called up on it) and then the next, falling all over one another. Say what!?

Anyway, I didn't like this book. Quinn should stick to what she is good at, because intrigue and psychological romance is NOT it.

I found the writing unexciting and cliched. Not in the Daphne du Maurier league. There are better books available on Kindle.

It was brilliant and I laughed out loud on several occasions. I can't wait to read the second book. Well done Julia Quinn.

A pleasant way to spend a rainy afternoon but if you are looking for something a bit more taxing it's not for you.

A nice comfortable read for a wet afternoon when you want to escape from it all, entertaining, funny and engaging
