    A hysterical romance

    I was hoping this book was about a woman posing as a spy. The "loan me banner" was across "and the" part of the title. Historical romances are my least favorite genre of books. I usually call them hysterical romances. This book did not have rape nor sex in it. My thanks to the author! There was not any cursing. It was a nice fast read, even at 484 pages. It was well written, had a good flow to it, and was very well edited. There was a dab of mystery, but it was a predictable whodunit. This book would be a suitable read for ages thirteen and up. It was pretty good for its genre.

    A bit of danger and romance

    I really enjoyed this book. I found it interesting from cover to cover. The characters are likeable. I didnt see the ending coming....very good. I would very much like to read another book by this author.

    Loved this book!

    I could hardly put it down, but then it is my style of read...intrigue, humour, and a rogue gentleman to fall in love with, not into bed with on every other page. Will have to read more of Ms. Elliott's books!

    Fair book.

    The premise was good but the story needed development. It lacked coherency and believability.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was well-written and I liked the main characters. Susanna reminded me of a Georgette Heyer heroine. I am definitely going to buy the sequel and I hope Anna Elliott continues the series.

    Good clean fun

    Its a page turner that takes the reader on an enjoyable, although at times unbelieveable journey. I'm glad its a totally clean book and look forward to reading the second novel.

    Love it!!!

    I couldnt put it down. Read it all in one night. Even though it didnt have as many pages as i like, it definately had quality and didnt feel short or lacking anything. Bought the next book already and it is just as good

    Starts well

    Susanna and the Spy took an unexpected twist early on, and then seemed to get stuck in a fairly predictable (yet unlikely) rut.

    As an expert of this time in history (I've read all the Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen I could find, after all), I found the events, attitudes, and dialogue rather fantastical. That being said, I'd probably read another free book by the same author. I appreciate clean novels!

    It was OK

    I found this book to be very unbelievable. Not the story, so much as the actiions of the main character, Susanna. It is highly improbable that a young, single girl in this time period would be running around at night by herself and getting involved in such activities. The writing was fine, but the storyline was just too unbelievable.

    Disappointed

    Well, I had high hopes. The author's name is Anna Elliot for Pete's sake!
    But I couldn't really connect or understand Susanna, and everything
    Happened WAY too fast. She should have made everyone suspicious
    Of her from the first night on... Oh well - it was like a roller coaster for
    Preschoolers - up and down and up and down and over, but some fun in there :)
    I gave Elliot a second chance and tried reading Georgiana Darcy's Diary -
    MUCH BETTER :) loved it! I feel like she spent her time, talent and expertise on that one and
    Had to throw the Susanna story together in a rush for some reason.
