A good read that just lacks that sparkle,
This review is from: Love and the Single Heiress (Avon Historical Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
Catherine Ashfield, Vicountess Bickley had a bad first marriage to a man who along with the rest of the ton rejected his crippled son.
After her husbands death she helps assist a friend with the publication of 'A Ladies guide to the Pursuit of Personal Happiness and Intimate Fulfilment' - a scandalous handbook that has taken society by storm, loved by ladies hated by the men.
During a ball to celebrate her fathers birthday she is shot and injured forcing her to flee London for safety to her country estate in the company of her brothers best friend Andrew Stanton.
Andrew has loved Catherine for years and jumps at this opportunity to woo her, he befriends her son and follows the points in the guide to the point where Catherine can no longer ignore him.
But she knows little about this American who has invaded her life and he too has secrets. Secrets that could cause her the greatest danger.
This is a good read it just is not brilliant, partly because especially in the 2nd quarter there is that kind of description that does not hold your interest but has you wanting to skip ahead. That may not seem much but there is nothing else bad to say about it but there is nothing to rave over either
