Editorial Reviews

Romantic Times Book Reviews
RT Rating: 4 1/2 stars

MacKeever expertly combines romance, humor, passion and mystery to create a gripping and entertaining novel. The primary and secondary characters are well developed and will elicit multiple emotional responses from readers throughout the novel. This book is a keeper you’ll want to re-read often.

Julie Wynne is not your average companion to a society matron. She is a criminal who’s being blackmailed into committing thefts for a notorious crime lord. However, she is in danger of being recognized by one of her former marks, Ned Fairchild, the current Earl of Dorset.

Since the little slip of a housebreaker got away, Ned cannot get her off of his mind. When he encounters her in one of London’s most fashionable ballrooms, he is intrigued. As Ned gets to know Julie, he becomes more enamored. Can Ned get her to trust him with her secrets and come to him for protection?

    Gritty London

    Tyburn Waltz is the latest in a long list of titles by Maggie MacKeever. I haven't read any of her others, but I definitely will. This novel is a regency, but this time with more than the usual fine manners and courtship battles of the ton.

    Julie, the heroine, comes from the seamy areas of London where life is cheap and brutal. Through believable turns of events, she is plucked from Tyburn prison where she faces the "waltz" at the end of a rope. She is taught the manners of a fine lady, for nefarious purposes of course, thus paving her way into the world of Mayfair. Underneath the fine manners, though, remains a fierce will and a fine intelligence. Her hero, Ned, is interesting for not being the usual stuffy noble in need of rescue from his own starched existence. Together, they face a first class criminal mind up to no good.

    There is a twist at the end which of course I won't reveal here but which you'll see coming anyway. Never mind that it is along the lines of laughable coincidences found in many romance novels, MacKeever carries it off well. I didn't mind because the book is a very good read with good characterization, a glimpse of historical seedy London, and lots of fun.
