Compelling dark read
The Earl's Enticement (Castle Bride Series Book 3) - Collette Cameron

There is a lot of darkness in this story. I loved it. Tragic pasts, uncomfortable presents, and a love that sees through it all. Adaira was a strong woman, hiding from a painful past, until she ran afoul of Roark, and her life changes her into a more complex woman. Roark is a man trying to protect his family name but is generous and caring. He uses propriety to keep things running smoothly, yet he understands Adaira once he comes to know her. These two are opposites that I am glad became attracted to each other despite their differences. I enjoyed listening to this story and look forward to reading and listening to more of Collette Cameron's stories.

I received a copy of this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

EARL OF SCANDAL by Mary Gillgannon
Earl of Scandal - Mary Gillgannon

Christian Faraday crashes his horses and curricle into Merrisa's wagon.  Since it is cold out and his one horse is injured she invites him to her home.  Merrisa is not one to hold her tongue and Christian, being an earl, is not used to others saying what they think.  He and Merrisa are attracted  to one another but not in the same class so both think the best thing would be to stay away from the other but scandal follows Christian into the country and Merrisa goes to London to save her brother where Christian must rescue her. 

 

I liked Merrisa.  She is sharp-tongued and feisty and takes on all.  She may be afraid but she knows how to give a set down.  I can see her in my mind going up against the roughest, toughest people.  I chuckled at her as she often bests the rest.  I liked Christian.  He is all the negative things he thinks but Merrisa sees more in him, once she lets her prejudices slide (just a little.)  Merrisa keeps Christian on his toes.  I chuckled as the two of them went after each other.  Elizabeth, Merrisa's sister, is a good foil for her.  Their brother should be kicked where the sun don't shine. 

 

I enjoyed the story.  It moved quickly and was fun.  It shows the hypocrisy of the times.  Keep it discreet and you can do anything.  I like how Merrisa does help Christian with a certain problem.  I would read this author again.

Readable, not a very interesting plot though.
Shades of Earl Grey - Laura Childs

This book still retains their likable and quaint characters, and still ends up a light enjoyable read. Although it would be preferable if read in order so you can get a feel for the characters, it could be read out of order (there’s a few references in the past books but nothing that will let the reader be lost and confused.)

 

My guess as to who the culprit was going to be was spot on. That being said though, what I really enjoyed about this book was the author got the reader to second guess their deductions. There were moments where I was second guessing myself because of the way the breadcrumbs were trailing. That was the best part of the book and the most enjoyable. I liked the little twists and turns being made to finally come to the ending and revealing of the cat burglar.

 

Although the characters and the mystery aspect of the book was enjoyable. The plot itself was a little lackluster and not very interesting to begin with. Delaine really struck a nerve with me as I didn’t enjoy her personality or her drama queen antics. I wanted the plot to be a little more interesting and more engaging to read. If it wasn’t for the breadcrumb trail you were being led on, the book would have been less enjoyable.

 

Overall, it wasn’t the greatest book of the series. The first two were much better. Let’s hope the next one will be better than this book. Still, it’s a light read to get through the day in between heavy novels. Worth a read through for cozy mystery fans.
