    My thanks to NetGalley and Beyond the Page Publishing for an eARC copy of this to read and review.This just didn t work for me There are many reviews that state the MC Anne is their favorite character and she is strong and feisty, etc I didn t see that at all I saw a rude woman who, while allegedly knowing the rules of polite society, completely ignored them to do what she wanted to do Depending on what she was doing when she said I don t give a hoot about rules, it might not have been so My thanks to NetGalley and Beyond the Page Publishing for an eARC copy of this to read and review.This just didn t work for me There are many reviews that state the MC Anne is their favorite character and she is strong and feisty, etc I didn t see that at all I saw a rude woman who, while allegedly knowing the rules of polite society, completely ignored them to do what she wanted to do Depending on what she was doing when she said I don t give a hoot about rules, it might not have been so bad But she was just downright RUDE I gave the book three chances and it failed 10% of the way in Life is too short for books that don t work for the reader and thus, this is a DNF for me Since I have to give a star rating on NetGalley, this is going to get 1 star from me I really didn t like it and am glad I only requested the first in this series, rather than be greedy, request all and be disappointed in them I have learned my lesson in that regard at least As many readers did like the MC, I may have just read this wrong And that s ok, not every book is for every reader

    This has the potential to be a good historical mystery series I adored Lady Anne and the banter between she and Darkefell I wasn t as engaged in the mystery or any secondary characters I will definitely try the next book.

    I really wanted to like this book but I found I just could not get into it.Lord Darkefell this name was just a little too obvious for my tastes and actually most of his household was so rude I found it surprising that Lady Anne would stay other than feeling an obligation to track down the murderer Other than his kindness towards his secretary I do not see why Lady Anne starts to fall for Lord Darkefell The other irritating part was the fact that there are constant references to Lady Anne wan I really wanted to like this book but I found I just could not get into it.Lord Darkefell this name was just a little too obvious for my tastes and actually most of his household was so rude I found it surprising that Lady Anne would stay other than feeling an obligation to track down the murderer Other than his kindness towards his secretary I do not see why Lady Anne starts to fall for Lord Darkefell The other irritating part was the fact that there are constant references to Lady Anne wanting to draw this or that and goes into details about the arrival of her drawing supplies but halfway through the book we have yet to see her draw anything In the end her drawing abilities really did not serve any purpose so I was not sure why it was brought up.I do have to say Lady Anne was the bright spot of the book As I got maybe half way through I really started to like her and her boldness not to let the men in the story treat her like an imbecile or coddle her like a weak woman In fact, the one surprising factor of her character was that she fell for Lord Darkefell I have to say it was also nice to see a heroine who wasn t a great beauty with men tripping over their feet to be with her Despite her plainness her personality and heart was what attracted Darkefell to her.Stop here if you do not want any spoilers.The most aggravating part about this book was there was no real resolution at the end It seems as if it is a cliff hanger so you have to wait for the next book to come out to find out what happens Darkefell proposes but Lady Anne runs away Darkefell despite knowing that Lady Anne is an immensely sensible woman all of a sudden believes she is playing games and simply wants him to woo her I do not see why he would think she is the stereotypical woman of this time despite all the time they spent together and him pointing out how she is unlike most women I really would prefer this book just to have a conclusion to the romance in it rather than dragging on into another novel

    I could almost give this book four stars, because despite how annoying the Marquess was as a main character, there were moments when I was really shocked by how much I liked it These moments, like I said, were lessened by moments when I was just really angry about everything that was happening and so upon reflection, I think three stars is where this one should be Lady Anne is the daughter of an earl, she has decided on spinsterhood not due to lack of options, though she does make it a point o I could almost give this book four stars, because despite how annoying the Marquess was as a main character, there were moments when I was really shocked by how much I liked it These moments, like I said, were lessened by moments when I was just really angry about everything that was happening and so upon reflection, I think three stars is where this one should be Lady Anne is the daughter of an earl, she has decided on spinsterhood not due to lack of options, though she does make it a point of calling herself plain, but because she has the money and familial support to do so She rushes to her friend, Lydia, after receiving a letter that made it sound like her life was falling apart only four months after being married She was supposed to marry Lydia s older brother at one point, and feels responsible for her.Lydia is beyond stupid, like I understand that could just be her character, but it felt like she was being used to make Anne seem smarter andperceptive I could have done without the constant reminder that there s literally nothing going on in her head but whatever Considering her letter and her marriage problems motivated the start of the novel, she was hardly mentioned really at all She was kind of too stupid to even deserve that much notice.I did think that Anne was very clever, there were elements when the mystery could have been fleshed outbut I do think it was a pretty decent investigation all around I also appreciated that she stuck to her perspective from the beginning of the book, she didn t majorly change her opinion on relationships or morals, it could be set up for the next couple of books being a gradual shift, but she is who she is and that s very admirable The Marquess was not as good of a character for me, mainly because he felt like a pretty rational guy and then used that way overused tactic on getting girls to shut up pulling them into for unsolicited kisses He didn t stop after he was punched the first time either, he did it like three times and it was annoying and not called for That really was the main reason why this book lost a star for me.Overall though I liked it I don t think the second book is in the library so I don t know if I ll be able to read on, but I see a lot of potential for where it could all go.This review and all my others can be found at
