off into danger Take that Yes it serves a convenient narrative point but it does it in a really annoying way It would have been far better for Em not to have noticed Lucy and let her keep thinking the wrong thingThere is a lot going on in this novel It opens with Colin on a mission that goes very badly wrong which provides excellent opportunity for him to both meet Lucy and for her to show off her skills It also means they have to spend lots of time together and continue to do so for a good portion of the novel This would have been fine if that plot hadn t then been abandoned because first Romance Then Lucy Problems It made all the fuss and bother seem pointless and uite frankly didn t do poor Marietta much justiceAs for Lucy s troubles as interesting as they were and unexpectedly dark at times they dragged on rather a bit Especially when you think they re over but no Like a pantomime villain they return when you least expect Except you do expect because the characters do something stupidly out of character so you know it s going to go wrong Add in the really rushed ending and you may begin to understand my frustrations There s also a lot of build up around Em s character none of which is expanded upon or explained such as what on earth was all that about Adam And what happened with Bess You can t throw all that emotion into the mix and then just forget about itThen there are the little details the freuent mention of Colin wearing pants and even leggings the idea that the baby has the lungs of a moose not very 19th century England and holding a poker like a cricket bat is only scary if you re aiming for someone s knees or fighting off a horde of Borrowers A cricket bat is not the same as a baseball bat because cricket is not the same as baseballOh and titles Why are the titles wrong There s clearly been so much research put into this book about many different things like word puzzles ways to drug people or kill them slowly over time and nefarious shipping schemes but not courtesy titles apparently It s not that hard to grasp it really isn t Precedent is the tricky thing but titles are easy Except not in this book Colin the younger son of a duke is referred to as Lord Somerville and Mr Somerville but never once correctly as Lord Colin nor are his brothers given their correct courtesy titles either And I m totally confused about Em I don t even know what title her father holds but I ll give the author the benefit of the doubt and say he s an earl or higher in which case Lady Em is fine but Lady Whateveritwas isn t because her father is still alive I m pretty sure Lucy shouldn t have a title either unless there s another family title floating around that is passed down the female line since there s all the fuss about her aunt s estate and her cousin is a lordSo in all a rather frustrating read There s plenty going on if you like suspense in your historicals and there is a sweetish romance buried amongst it all at first but to be honest it irritated me too often for me to enjoy it Over long with too many tangled threads that were rarely tied up I found the first third much engaging than the rest while the rushed ending left me feeling

second book in the The Muses Salon series and also at least as far as I can tell from Goodreads the second published book by this author I received an eARC from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review and I can honestly say that especially for a new author I was very impressed The three star review also shows that I did find some points for further improvement I won t repeat the blurb but will share my personal thoughts on how I feel about this bookI hadn t read the first book before I started this book and can say that it can be read as a stand alone although there does seem to be an ongoing storyline The story started out strong I loved the writing style I loved all the elements that were put into play and I couldn t wait to read on and see how it would all play out Then somewhere around the middle part of the book I found myself less and less invested in the story They were in the inn in a coach in an empty hunting lodge reading playing games and I found myself waiting for the pace of the story to pick up again I loved the titbits about the games although I felt the author lost herself a bit in the telling about them When the story did pick up again it was largely focussed on the unraveling of the multiple cleverly intertwined suspense plots However since I am a very romance focussed reader that part of the plot didn t interest me much So for me less suspense would definitely be I was glad the story had an epilogue I love epilogues but sadly this one was a teaser for the next books in this series The characters were both interesting especially Colin and I liked reading about them throughout the book However they both started out better then they finished Colin began witty charming and smart and became almost solely motivated by honour which made for some strange behaviour at times Lucy started out as a clever self suffici nt girl fully capable of taking care of herself In the end she just seemed to wait for others to accomplish what she wanted The after effects of the asylum played a part in that but not allThe romance part started out good but kind of faded away near the end The HEA came suddenly and too easily and didn t feel truly believable at that point I needed Colin to have had to work a lot harder for it and for Lucy to have shown some of the character I know she had and to demand his groveling More showing through the POV from Colin in the conslusion would have helped Without it his actions seemed to come out of nowhere The story was pushed forward mainly through the actions of the bad guys and in part because of lack of communication I still wonder why on earth her grandmother didn t tell Lucy what was written in that letter That would have solved and prevented so many troubles Would I
