Humorous and touching. She has created a delightful cast of eccentric characters that I hope to see again.

    This book has three big flaws. The first is the typos - here were enough of them to pull me out of the story. The second was continuity - in one instance, two characters meet, and then about 10 pages later, one of those asked a third character about the first one and says he never met that person. The third issue was characters - there were too many. This book was chalk full of so many references to people and name dropping and craziness that I could not keep track of who knew whom and what when. Fourth - too much arbitrary death. It's a fine plot device to propel the story forward but man, people were dying right and left for no actual reason. I do think this author has potential, and would be willing to read another book once she worked out some of the kinks. Otherwise, this was a bit of a mess.

    I loved it!

    There were a few typos but I liked the story. There might have been one death to many, however despite that you'll fall in love with the characters.

    Having read Julie's other novel I decided to give this one a shot. This is the kind of book you pick up to read and get so lost in the story, that you forget everything around you. Suddenly as you sadly finish the last line of the book, you realize you must return to reality. You fall in love with the characters and are cheering them on to the end. The story is gripping and leaves you hungry for what happens next. This was an utterly delightful and refreshing novel!!

    A witty debut novel from Julie Johnstone. Lady Gillian's the keeper of family secrets and determined to protect her sister at any cost. I loved the lengths she was prepared to go to in her quest to escape their scandalous past. I particularly loved hero Alex. He's bold and bowled over by Gillian. A protective man after my own heart. Compulsive reading.

    Great book!

    Captivating book, which I couldn't put down. I finished it at midnight, even though I had to get up at 6 AM. I was pleasantly surprised that it would hold my attention, since I usually only read mysteries.

    Great job. When's the next book coming out?
