3 of 5 stars
This is the first book I've read by Ms. DeHart and while I liked the romance of Oliver and Harriett, I was disappointed that the main mystery theme running throughout the book was not addressed or resolved at the end of the book. I'm not a fan of a mystery running across multiple books. Usually by the time the next book in the series comes out, I've already forgotten what the original premise was.
I did enjoy Oliver Weeks, Marquess of Davenport, pursuit and courtship of Lady Harriet. He believes he is damaged goods because of a limp and Harriet believes that no one would ever find her attractive because of her lush curves which is the exact opposite of lithe figures of other debutants. In the end, they both help each other realize they are perfect for each other despite their imperfections. Having a flawed hero makes him more believable.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review and was not obligated to leave a review.
