    This book is one of the worst offenders I ve ever seen in the category of stick a modern, liberated woman in an historical setting and wave away all the very real, social, legal and political limitations on women as mere mosquitoe buzzes, easily overcome by a little spunkiness and pretend attitudes, beliefs and behavior always have and always will be shaped by the same forces that shaped you Granted that characters who really and fully represented their time would not be very engaging to modern [...]

    Disappointing The heroine was so annoying, constantly wavering between believing the hero killed his cousin s fiancee and believing him to be innocent.I actually liked the hero but I just couldn t see what he saw in her, and that s what kills the romance for me At least it was from the library, never again.

    The plot is a blend of murder mystery and Regency era romance.There is also a very subtle hint of the fairytale Beauty and the Beast.
