Little Pleasing Minx of a Tale,
This review is from: Minx (Blydon Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
Contrary to the belief of my mate, I positively do not spend all day reading, well not all day every day!
But I did manage to read this a while ago .... in my defence purely because it was only 391 pages of quite large print (my copy was a paperback, and not Kindle at the time), additionally I am an inordinately quick reader, especially if I am engaged with the characters.
The story of William Dunford, referred to by all who know him as simply Dunford, who has newly inherited the title of Lord Stannage, and Miss Henrietta Barrett, who it turns out is his Ward.
A totally beguiling story of the hoydenish Henry, who had been running the estate that Dunford inherits without much trouble, since she was 14. She wore breeches, rode astride and was used to running the show.
At the time Julia Quinn was a new author, and I found her style to be a touch too modern for my taste, however, that was just the first chapter I think from memory. I soon got used to her style, and never turn down a Julia Quinn offering now ever, as she is so funny and a delight to read. Plus she has the most perfect characterisation.
I have to admit to a raised heart beat and rapid breathing towards the end, as I raced through the pages to a very happy conclusion to this read.
A worthy 4 star read.
