A good read but was disappointed that it was only a little over 130 pages.

Good story, well written, fine book! Set among the high society of England around 1830, it tells the story of two confirmed singles who set about bringing down an unknown blackmailer who preys on her friends. Tabitha, past the date that makes her a spinster, thinks all men are offal; Sebastian, a scholar, must get married to keep his family's fortune from going to a useless cousin, but thinks all the girls he's seen are nothing but empty-headed chits. Working together to discover and bring the culprit to justice, however, each finds the other nothing like either expected. Maybe, just possibly, things are better than they thought. Anyone who enjoys reading about romance in 19th century England will find this novella a pleasure.

This book is a little over 100 pages (the extra pages listed are previews of two other books) and a satisfying read! The author does use a lot of "period" terminology, but most were able to be looked up in the dictionary or were easily figured out based on the context in which they were used, so in no way did I find this fact to detract from the story. In fact, it added authenticity to the era in my opinion. I really enjoyed this book & identified with many of the emotions the heroine felt; relateability for me is essential for enjoying a book. I recommend this short story to anyone interested in a quick mystery romance who appreciates authenticity to the Regency era!

I think the author did a good job in creating a relatively strong, and independent female character. The story plot is interesting, and the romance is cute. The book seems to be over quicker than I would like. But definitely worth reading.

This was the second book I've read by Stephanie Laurens & I don't like her books at all! They are very boring. She puts a lot of emphasis on scenery & travel, which don't interest me at all. The love scenes are ok, but that's about it.

I liked the format and the characters. Heroine was somewhat naive.
