About this deal

The characters, by and large, are likeable and interesting with the bulk of the focus rightfully on Mary and Tre. I due si incontreranno a più riprese nel corso del romance, non riuscendo a creare una situazione stabile per un rapporto amoroso e avvicinandosi e respingendosi continuamente. Nevertheless a great story once again about a female refusing to accept her position in life in the background and how she found herself. I liked Mary and Tre as a couple, and I enjoyed reading about a strong-minded woman living in an era were submission was expected. She makes no visible effort to create a life for herself - we are told that she does some lady detective work, but for most of the book, she's meekly following her mother, generally unhappy and dissatisfied with everything.

The writing was dreamily excellent and just sucked me in, so effortlessly, and refused to let me go. Differing slightly from the usual Mills and Boon romance novel, the love affair between the books two central characters, Lady Mary Montagu Douglas Scott and Colonel Walter Trefusis, is the definition of a slow-burn yet takes somewhat of a back seat.

During her first case, she meets Colonel Walter Trefusis who is convincing her Father (the Duke) to back his new department of secret intelligence (he is a SPY!

Lady Mary Montagu Douglas Scott is the fiercely intelligent youngest daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch.

With thanks to NetGalley and Mills and Boon for the advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review. Anyhoo, Lady Mary is not only a skilled gymnast and a crack shot but turns out to be quite the drawing room detective, solving domestic mysteries pertaining to lost brooches and irregular charity outgoings. Mary is the daughter of a duke, shy and frightened that her controlling father will orchestrate a marriage for her. You don't even get to see this interaction, Mary tells Tre about it after the fact, which I thought was a poor and rushed choice.In telling the story of a young woman who quietly investigates wrong doings happening in the privileged class of late Victorian, Sarah Ferguson uses information known to her.

She then manages to "finagle" (bluntly ask for) information that supports her theory from the staff. I'm moving on to something else that will hopefully be a better fit for my interests and character preferences. The silver lining has meant that she has been free to develop her own mind and interests; and only pretends to be a meek and mindless young lady when her parents, or other members of society are around.

Mary è cresciuta come una donna fuori dal comune, in cerca di una propria identità e libera di fare esperienze diverse da quelle delle sue coetanee. But let’s begin with an apposite quotation from EM Forster: “What is wonderful about great literature is that it transforms the man who reads it towards the condition of the man who wrote it. Enter Trefusis, who falls for Lady Mary almost immediately after meeting her - with a penchant for solving crimes and acting on a whim, Mary is a most intriguing lady, indeed! Mary and her unconventional ideas were excellent, and I loved how she kept fighting to define what it was she wanted/was looking for in life (and love).

Any images and covers will have a text description for the visually impaired enabled through their device's text-to-speech function and similarly, this complies with digital braille readers and similar devices. While the time period is not necessarily known (to me) for women empowerment or feminist leanings, Lady Mary’s feelings and worries did not feel at all anachronistic, and I could readily identify with her.Tortured by memories of combat, Walter, like Mary, lives a double life, with a desk job in Whitehall providing a front for his role in the British Intelligence Service. Instead of focusing wholely on romance, Sarah Ferguson chooses, instead to focus on bringing to life the "forgotten" women of the Victorian era.
