Overview

Trusting Miss Trentham by Emily Larkin

Letitia Trentham is noteworthy for three reasons. One, she's extremely wealthy. Two, she can distinguish truth from lies. Three, she's refused every man who's ever proposed to her.

Until Letty receives a proposal she can't turn down.

Icarus Reid barely survived the Battle of Vimeiro. He lives for one thing-to find the man who betrayed him to the French. He doesn't want to marry Miss Trentham; he wants to use her talent for uncovering lies.

Suddenly, Letty finds herself breaking the rules, pretending to be someone she's not, and doing things a lady would never do. But her hunt for the truth may uncover more than one secret-including the secret that haunts Icarus day and night. The secret he intends to take to his grave...

Compelling and powerfully emotional, I was drawn in from the first chapter of this story and could not wait to see what happened. This is my favorite trope with the damaged hero or heroine who finds redemption in the end. Letitia Trentham has been on the marriage mart and received a copious amount of proposals. She is a heiress after all, but she also has a skill which is beyond the typical person. She is able to tell if someone is telling the truth or not which has revealed to her that all of her suitors were just after her money. Icarus Reid is only living for one reason. To find out who betrayed him and his command in the Battle of Vimeiro which left many dead due to that leaked information. He approaches Letitia for only one reason. To use her skill to uncover if someone is lying or telling the trith and he needs her to go with him to interrogate all the men involved. There are so many twist and turns to this story and a mystery to be solved. But the big question is what does Reid intend to do once he obtains the information? As Letitia grows close to him, she fears the worst will happen. This was an exceptional story that I will be thinking about for awhile. I cannot wait to read more by this author and all the books in this series. You will not be disappointed. Lori Dykes

1808, and the very wealthy Letitia Trentham has a gift, she can hear when a lie is spoken and consequently at the age of 27 has refused two hundred offers of marriage. A Major Reid on hearing of this knack asks for her help in finding a traitor - Major Icarus Reid only just survived the Battle of Vimeiro in Portugal. He is alive for only one reason - to hunt for the person who betrayed him and his scouts to the French. Enjoyed the story a lot, with a very easy writing style, and I really liked the characters.

This was my first book by this author and I did not read the prequels but I do not think it took anything away from it. I am left with questions about the whole god mother process but like I said it did not take away from the book. At first I was not sure how I felt about it- it just did not jump out and grab me but I stuck with it and was not disappointed. Not the typical story of the girl who is beautiful but does not think so story but a story plain girl/heiress and man who has no need for a wife. I was not the biggest fan of Icarus but he grew on me. I felt for him and his inner demons. It really was a nicely developed relationship- not forced. I loved that they were both so kind (not necessarily to each other) and how they held themselves. It had dark features but it touched a topic that was relevant then and relevant now. I was pleasantly surprised by Letty and Icarus' story and look forward to checking out more of Emily Larkin's books.

London - 1808 Miss Letitia (Letty) Trentham, age 27, is England’s most wealthy heiress and yet unwed even after countless proposals. Laurence Darlington is at the Hammond Ball with Letty and when he suggests they visit the conservatory, Letty knows this is a ploy for yet another proposal. Letty knows all about him and he is shocked when she tells him she knows he is nearly bankrupt. Angry when she calls him out on the truth, he stalks away. Yet Letty can’t help but feel sad because all the proposals she receives seem to be for her money and not for love. All she wants is for someone to love her for herself. A Mr. Icarus Reid, the fifth and youngest son of Sir Hector Reid of Yorkshire, introduces himself and asks to speak to her. Noticing that he appears to be thin, gaunt and unwell, she encourages him to sit down. He tells her that he has heard of her and her talent to always be able to tell if someone is lying so he wants to enlist her help. It appears that when he was fighting the war, one of two of his men was responsible for passing information to the French and he wants her to accompany him while he questions these men and let her decide which one is lying. At first, Letty is hesitant to help him, but when he confesses to her that he is dying, she agrees to help him. One man Icarus suspects is Reginald Grantham who happens to be a suitor of Letty’s. The other man is George Dunlop, a debtor in prison. Letty and Icarus meet in the park the next day and sure enough, Grantham comes by and they all chat. When Icarus asks him if he was the one who passed the information, he denies it. Then, Letty and Icarus go to the prison to question Dunlop. While the inside of the prison is distasteful to her, she realizes that she truly wants to continue to help Icarus in this adventure. So, she leaves her maid behind and they travel as Mr. and Mrs. Reid. The first part of this story kept my interest but at this point it lost me. Weak men who can’t seem to get a handle on life are just a total turnoff to me. I think Letty’s attraction to Icarus was that she felt she could help and “save” him. Sorry, but this book just did not appeal to me. As Emily Larkin is a new to me author, I do want to try reading more of her books.

Godmother Baletongue #3, with a new landscape and new characters. I like the way the heroine and hero struggle with true life problems; I find it fascinating to follow the way their love develops and helps in their healing. There is a very slight but true connections between this story and the earlier ones. Disclaimer: I received and advanced copy for review purposes; I am voluntarily posting this review.
