5.0 out of 5 stars Mistaken Identity Results In Surprising Romance, 3 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Someone to Watch Over Me (Mass Market Paperback)
This is another Bow Street Runner novel from Lisa Kleypas. Like the wonderful "Lady Sophia's Lover," and the unbeatable "Worth Any Price," this story features realistic characters from mid-1800's England's burgeoning middle class, and not the usual nobility of the "haute ton." Number 4 Bow Street is the headquarters for the relatively new force of organized police/dectectives, who keep law and order in London.
Grant Morgan, one of the Bow Street leaders, has made his fortune and fame recovering stolen property for banks, serving as personal guard to the monarchy, and locating abducted heiresses. He is one of London's most eligible and unattainable men. One night he is called to a ferry dock along the Thames to investigate a drowning. The victim turns out to be quite beautiful and alive. Mr. Morgan recognizes and identifies her as Vivian Duvall, a famous courtesan who defamed him some months before. He brings her to his home to recover. Noticing bruises on her neck, Morgan realizes that someone had attempted to murder Vivian. She, however, has amnesia and can remember nothing of her past, neither her own name nor her profession. Morgan is hot on the case of the murderer's identity and motive - and he's hot on Ms. Duvall's case also.
But Vivian does not live up to her tarnished reputation on the one hand, and proves to be much lovlier than expected on the other. Slowly, the secrets of her past emerge, as does the mutual attraction between Vivian and Grant. The mystery is not difficult to figure out, and the plot is undemanding, to say the least. However Ms. Kleypas weaves a story like no on else and her characters, with their sizzling chemistry, keep your eyes riveted to the page.
Lisa Kleypas novels are as addictive as good chocolate - but not as fattening. They are super rich, delicious, and you won't put on a pound. Try one! You're in for a treat.
