A Lady Never Tells
Meet three noble bachelors and a quartet of American girls of questionable manners! New York Times bestselling author Candace Camp delights with an exciting new series featuring love, laughter, and intrigue.
When Mary Bascombe’s stepfather tries to sell her and her sisters to the highest bidder after their mother’s death, she resolves to take drastic action. Although their British mother was estranged from her family, Mary decides the four will flee to London and take their place in society as granddaughters of the Earl of Stewkesbury.
Dashing Sir Royce Winslow doubts the honesty of the young women’s claim—despite their charms, they seem to be hiding something. His attraction to feisty Mary, however, is no ruse, so when the sisters are shipped off to Willowmere, the earl’s country estate, to acquire some polish, Royce is quick to join them. When an unknown villain attempts a kidnapping, Royce and Mary are thrown together as they confront the danger . . . and Royce learns that while high society may sing the praises of proper behavior, it is a most improper American who is winning his heart.” –Goodreads
If there was any book that could be classified as “meh,” this would be it. As you probably know, if you have followed my blog for awhile, I LOVE a good romance novel and this one was quite disappointing.
To start off, the title had little to nothing to do with the plot. This is a pet peeve of mine that occasionally comes up with historical romances, and it always irritates me. Another aspect is that this book took me forever to finish. The story was not very captivating. At times there was too much going on and at others there was too little. Incidents kept occurring, characters kept being dumb, etc. So overall, this was very “meh”.
