    The beginning was promising It started as a humorous historical mysteryromance I hope the humorous part was intentional The murder and its aftermath are actually really entertaining with all those stampeding women I honestly thought I would like it Elenora uinton a housekeeper everyone knows seriously it is said exactly like that gets dragged into a dangerous world of spying when someone gets killed in the middle of a ball Then we meet Nathan Black's family all spies of course I don't think I've ever read about incompetent spies The story might have been uite good if it hadn't had unbelievable characters and their unbelievable actions I had this feeling that all the characters and whatever they are doing is just splashed randomly throughout the bookI hope the next couple has a better story with better editing

    Review can also be found in Chill and readSociety’s most capable housekeeper the infallible Miss Eleanora uinton has a problem Not only does a dead body fall right into the middle of her mistress’s ball and her son gets kidnapped the only person who can help her also forces her to face her most crippling fearsThe heroin is a woman that has suffered a lot away from her family serving her aunt’s family and now a house in London for than 10 years now She is known to the house and her maids as strict and infallible and she is treated with respect Turns out she is known to her mistress’s peersThe story starts with a murder during a ball A mystery kind of book that evolves to a historical romance The beginning is very promising and the reader expects to find a really good plot and a couple of twists just around the corner As a matter of fact the story line is a good one even though one would not expect that housekeepers get noticed by the peerage but yet again this is fiction we are talking about It could continue really good and turn to a very interesting book if it wasn’t written in a hurry At least this is what sums upIt is an easy read The hero Nathan is a real hero in the book and is described as that He is displayed to be thoughtful and caring apart from being a spy and a brave man His actions are up to the formed character The heroine Nora is a woman that rarely smiles She is running her staff on a firm hand Somehow these two fell in love uickly enough to get married in spite of the common logicThe story evolves surprisingly fast All obstacles come clear miraculously There should be some development on the actionspy scenes They would provide that special touch to make the book something than a purely love story There is room for improving and addressing a wider audience Yet again this is up to the author to take into accountThe book was provided as a prize of the Big Summer Reading Giveaway hosted by the author

    A bit 'messy' in the beginning but still a very good story; I liked the suspense element Pity though that it ends when it does leaving the fate of Alec and Sarah open

    This book was ok I didn't love it and I wouldn't read it again But it wasn't horrible either it was just easy to put down I found Nora's character a bit unbelievable everyone in the peerage knew her? Really? Just to clarify everyone in the peerage knew Nora the housekeeper Sorry that is unbelievable to me Nathan was a great hero but I think he fell in love way too uickly In fact both of them did The entire story was not very cohesive there was a lot left unsaid that frankly should have been said about Alec Sarah and the duke duchess and even Nathan's mother or how Nora got promoted to housekeeper etc And it was wordy don't misunderstand not badly written just too many words at times example He stuck his finger in her face and waited for her to push up her fallen cap so she could see it Stay He treated her rather like one would a furry companion of the canine variety Ok so he waited until she looked up and stuck his finger in her face and told her to stay like a dog I don't know why but I found this annoying I don't know if will read the rest of the series I haven't ruled out the possibility but it will only be if I have nothing else to read

    25 the story was just to simple in it's action scenes everything just worked out and to uickly the kidnapping was solved and resolved to uickly The tie to heroine at times strong and then other times it just melted awayat one point you felt she was the center point and suddenly she wasn't That was the most frustrating part I know this series has connected stories so the overall plot needed to stretch But to be frank a bit angst fear and suspense wouldn't have hurt this book in the least The kidnapping and their own abduction was to easily resolvedWritten like a novella but actually too long if that makes any sense I'll continue because it's rare to get a decent spy novel out of the historical period But I will say there are far better ones out there a decent free readWhy didn't I pan it? Pretty much because I do like a spy plot and the characters are very likable

    Didn't finish and not going to Fair warning rant and spoilers aheadThis book is free at the kindle store Looking at the summary and some people comments I figure I give it a try The plot was good and seemed promising The beginning was good and interesting up until Nora taking care of Nathan's shot wound in the studyThe main reason I stopped reading was I couldn't stand this author's writing style any longer The second was the PG 13 intimate romance I will focus on the author's writing style I read the comments beforehand and thought how bad could it be I am not one to focus on author's writing while reading However it was bad for me those who know me that says a bit This book is slow and I mean slow There is focus on the romance between Nora and Nathan than the storylineplot I understand character development and relationship development but come on There is a person outside the window spying on them and they act romantic to glance at the person to see who it is Does Nathan chase after the person after they leave? No They stayed there having a make out session because Nora wanted to since it is her first time kissing a person willingly Nathan noted he should be a proper gentleman and be good spy and go after the person but no he indulges Nora for wanting to be kiss Of course her son get kidnap during that Note Nora has a past of being raped which result of having a sonThis happens often where I feel like they needed to focus on the problems at hand and take uick action rather than romance They take some action then back to romance forgetting what they need to do Like Alec Nathan's brother leavesdisappears they figure out who is likely behind the events going on base on things Nora has heard and parts of her past but don't understand why or how it is all connected Nathan and Nora goes to find out info at a church only to come back married because of a man watching them and priest mistakes them for a different couple They got caught up in suddenly getting married Instead of looking for information or following the guy they go back to announce their married to their families and they celebrate that night forgetting Alec and his wife have disappeared probably heading to Dover that was heavily hinted before I stopped at the next morning following that which by that point is 80% through the book One thing about this author's writing that I found I disliked was how often she would change the third person view within a chapter I don't mind changing third person view in books but she change it within a scene For example she focus on Nora's thoughts and feelings for a little while Then continue the scene with Nathan's or someone else's thoughts and feelings then back At times it would make sense and other times it just felt out of place and unnecessary For example when the girls took Nora to get her cleaned up the author focuses on Nathan and Alec just sitting in the library waiting and Nathan continually asking over and over Alec how are things with his wife Because the author does this things progressed slow and there were details on things that could be summed up in a sentence or two instead of one or two long paragraphs I tried I really did I got through 80% of the book I wanted to like this book and finish read the book to get a full opinion of the whole story However I got fed up at the lack of progression of storylineplot through out the book and the author's writing This book could have been really good but it was written poorly Clearly I wouldn't recommend this book

    Historical English romance with a housekeeper to a rich titled family finds love and a made family with the bastard son of a Duke that works for the War MinistryMiss Eleanora uinton is very observant she has to be in order to be the best housekeeper possible so that is why Mr Nathan Black and the Duchess his step mother is working hard to distract her while they are getting their spy mission doneThere are death threats kidnapping actual murder and some pretty dresses in this story as well as the subject of rape that is delicately treated and probably uite common at that timeNot the usual fluff historical romance because we see the hard working people that deal everyday with the rich elite but have a much difficult life259 pages and kindle freebie2 stars

    Kind of sillyThe author's writing style didn't flow smoothly I had to read some sentences a couple of times to make sense of themBasically the heroine was a housekeeper who had a son the result of her being raped The hero worked for the War Office He was the illegitimate son of a dukeThe whole family was loving and supportive which was nice But there was a lot of silliness about the hero's brother and his wife both also worked for the WO They had been or less forced to marry to be effective spies and they carried on pretending they hated each other when they actually were in love Very tiresome

  9. Juli Juli says:

    Actually I had the audiobook Enjoyed the story very much and Miss Rachael Beresford's narration If The only thing that made me wonder was the inclusion of the heroine and other female characters with the work of the war office historically that is but this did nothing to detract from my enjoyment In fact I'd say it's been one of my favorite historical romance reads er listens in a while I look forward to delving into of her series

    Spies galore This story had a lot going on Murder spies betrayal and other drama Insane people allowed to run around More than one love story unfolds but we must wait for in the next book This love story has a conclusion but the spies background story continues on I liked it
