    Accused but innocent┬┐

    Reading Almost Guilty is like being transported back in time to the early 1800¿s. Jacie Fielding dreams of becoming a doctor. From the beginning, you know she not a typical female. She has taken refuge in London, fearing she will be accused of a murder she did not commit. Gabriel Rayne suspects she is the key to solving the murders of his friends. The two are drawn together, seeking answers. Jacie¿s life is in danger. Will protecting her help Gabriel find the answers he seeks? Using an understated style, Isabel Mere offers readers a story filled with romance and mystery. Jacie is a strong character, proving she can survive on her own. She and Gabriel play well together. I very much enjoyed the supporting character of Dr. Leggett. Mere has a talent for painting a word picture of the era. Fans of romance and suspense will enjoy Almost Guilty.

    Sensual Historical Romance

    Isabel Mere¿s skill with words and the turn of a phrase makes ALMOST GUILTY a joy to read. Her characters reach out and pull the reader into the trials, tribulations, simple pleasures, and sensual joy that they enjoy. Jacie, a single-minded woman who is determined to one day be a doctor, works toward realizing her goal in life despite The Tragedy that forced her to flee her home and go to London. Alone, with mean people seeking to do her harm, she takes an assumed name. Trying to be invisible, she works, studies, lives frugally, and searches for the truth about her brother¿s death and the events leading up to it. Love tiptoes in amid a wealth of suspicions and intriguing plots that are afoot to implicate her in murder. Gabriel, an independently wealthy third son of an Earl, suspects Jacie of being involved in the murder of two of his friends. At first, he sought her company to ferret out information but soon found himself seeking her company because he couldn¿t get her off his mind or out of his heart. Ms. Mere¿s unravels the tangled web of murder, smuggling, kidnapping, hatred and faithless friends, while weaving a web of caring, sensual love that leaves a special joy and hope in the reader¿s heart. At times, I felt the story had too many secondary characters but they didn¿t keep me from turning the pages to see how Gabriel and Jacie bridged the gap between their two very different worlds and how they came to live happy ever after despite tremendous odds. And, of course, that special love scene near the end, so good! Review by Camellia, LongandShortReviews
