So Beau agrees to try to run the blockade one last time. I liked this story it had a lot in it: blade running, pretended insanity, stalking, PSTD, stalking, a strong woman, evil villains, role reversal, danger, suspense, humor, yellow fever, and so much more. This story had a good plot. You felt as though you were right there with Beau and C C . I loved the twists and turns for the characters as well as the story. I recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
Uberreader’s review of The Trouble with Misbehaving May 15, 2016 By Heather Danielle Thoroughly enjoyable and enthralling you cannot wait to see how it all works out in the end. You relate to and understand the villains. You root for the misunderstood and guarded main characters. The children are beautifully portrayed; you just may fall in love with them. This book is entrancing and you won’t want to put it down. What's more this book illustrates in phenomenal detail the effects of war on the civilian populace. You might even find yourself in tears at some stage while you read this book. I would highly recommend you put this book on your wish or reading list if you are a fan of historical romances.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Take adventure add some romance and some mystery, and bad guys everywhere and you get this story. Who did what to who? The story is intriguing from the beginning to the end, once you start reading, it's really hard to put down. Beau is a wonderful, witty, damaged hero. C.C. is a little high-handed, but her heart is in the right place. Victoria is a great storyteller and I look forward to reading more books by her.
Intrepid, interesting and intriguing “CC” Collins was a whole lot more than she seemed to be at first glance and the layers of who she really was were peeled off one after another as the book progressed. Beau Tollier was strong, brave and true but perhaps changed from the man who left home 12 years before, especially after his last experience running the Union blockade. This story has romance, action, bad and good men, surprises, and a lot more. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author in the future. I do have to say that I wondered what the animals were doing in cages on the boat in that last action-packed scene and kept wondering if someone was going to be eaten by the lion…but…why not? Thank you to NetGalley and Carina for the copy of this book to read and review.
