    The only word this book merits is UGH.

    The sappy heroine, fresh-from-the-country Millicent Blair, finds herself as companion for her ailing, gossip writer aunt. As such, she's forced to attend evenings among the London elite to glean juicy items for her aunt's column. She focuses on the doings of the Earl of Dunraven, much to his annoyance. There's a thief afoot, and Dunraven suspects Millicent! Was this plot line to make the story more interesting? Well, it didn't divert this reader from the thinly drawn, stock characters, the formula romance, with no surprises. Couldn¿t put it on my give-away pile fast enough.

    Good read.

    As Millie helps her recuperating aunt write her anonomous gossip column, she catches the attention of one of the Terrible Threesome, Chandler Presswick, the Earl of Dunraven. Though committed to being a rouge, he is fascinated by this young miss, even when he suspects her of being the notorious Mad Ton thief who has stolen a priceless heirloom from his family. Millie does not want to be attracted to the earl, but she is, and worries what he willl think of her once he knows the truth, that she is one of the gossip mongers who keeps his name in the headlines. <BR><BR> **** A delightful Regency frolic, this amusing novel has more meat to it than the standard Regency, yet is light enough to be a pleasant diversion. Just a touch of intrgue and a little bit of heat make this a novel for both Histosrical and Regency fans. **** </p><BR> Reviewed by Amanda Killgore.

    delightfully cheerful ¿All¿s well that ends well¿ tale

    When Lady Beatrice Talbott tripped over her dog and suffered severe injuries, she sends for her niece Millicent Blair, but not to nurse her back to health. Instead Beatrice assigns Millicent to continue her Lord Truefitt¿s gossip column in the London Daily Reader. Though she loathes spreading gossip, Millicent would do anything including writing this column for her aunt. Millicent reports that the Mad Ton Thief stole a priceless golden raven from the collection of the Earl of Dunraven, Charles Preswick, while the aristocrat hosted a social event. Charles meets Millicent and is very attracted to her wit and intelligence, more so perhaps than her understated beauty. Charles, frustrated by the poor performance of Bow St., begins his own investigation into the identity of the Mad Ton Thief with Millicent helping him sift through the clues. Working in close proximity and courting too, Charles and Millicent fall in love, but she worries what will happen to her beloved aunt if he learns who Truefitt is. Fans of Regency romantic romp will relish this amusing tale highlighted by Lord Truefitt¿s commentaries that borrow from classic literature to describe individual members of the Ton. Even with a semblance of an amateur sleuth investigation, the story line never takes itself seriously, but except for the column never quite attains a sense of irony or powerful suspense. Instead the audience receives a delightfully cheerful ¿All¿s well that ends well¿ tale starring two engaging protagonists. Harriet Klausner

    Nice Read

    The plot and characters might be predictable but they are well developed and enjoyable. The book is well written and the characters are given depth. The editing is very good too. Actually a 3 1/2.
