3.0 out of 5 stars Rather an uneven read, 21 Mar 2014

This review is from: The Scandalous Lady Wright (Kindle Edition)
I was not totally enamoured of this regency set tale. The heart of the story being that Emma (Lady Wright) trapped in an abusive marriage to Sir Benjamin Wright, MP and local pillar of his community, is wrongly suspected of his murder.

I enjoyed some parts of the book, for instance the opening, but overall felt it was nothing special. The cast of characters is over-large and there just seemed to be far too much going on. Emma is actually an okay character and I liked her, same goes for her two best friends Annabelle and Matilda. The three friends have in common the fact that they are all stuck in unsatisfactory marriages. The latter two each take centre stage in further separate but linked stories. I wouldn't mind delving into Annabelle's story (His Lordship's Pleasure) as her husband features in some of the murky goings-on that surrounded Lady Wright in this book but the extent of his involvement is not really clarified and left me wondering.

The hero of the story, Comte Saint-Juste, unwittingly plays a major role in the final big bust up between Sir Benjamin and Emma that occurs just before the murder. Likewise the Comte plays the major role in the fight for Emma's reputation and future. He too is largely an okay character although I have to say he didn't appeal to me and at times I actually found him a little irritating. However he comes up trumps for Emma and everything concludes as one expects.

A patchy 3* read.
