    Unusual hero in this murder mystery the duke, while handsome, is kind, good hearted, not athletic, and is browbeaten by his formidable grandmother The murder happens early in the story The duke shoots the heroine s father Lord Todd, then there is another murder of the valet, and it is inspector Formby s job to solve the crimes The dead father was really nasty in life, the heroine is desperate, the dowager duchess is a dragon, and there is a nice twist at the end It took me until the last chapter to figure out the strange title One quibble the daughter of a viscount would not be Lady Todd that would be her mother she would be Miss Todd.

    I really struggled with whether to rate this a 3 probably deserved for the many mistakes that no serious Regency writer should make or a 4 for a delightful story and wonderful characters.The well paced, imaginative story and great cast of characters seemed important in the end, so I ve rated it 4 stars.I looked up the author, and although she s written many Regency stories, she s also been successful in other genres, and I admire her for that I just don t understand the mistakes, such as calling the heroine Lady Todd when it should have been Miss Todd This, and a number of similar mistakes, were very annoying especially since I read and loved the first two books in this series I don t remember these types of mistakes in those books Perhaps this one was written first Ms Leech, please consider updating this book to fix these glaring mistakes Beyond these problems with titles and addressing people with titles, the editing was generally okay, with missing commas in compound sentences, but the epilogue seemed to be unedited with strange repetitions.Anyway, if you love a great story mystery with an unusual Hero, then give this story a try

    Not your usual who done it.The murder happens early and the hero is the least likely fellow, something of a dandy who cannot shoot straight Lord Rennard, the Fox, is a rather despicable man who uses people until he no longer can and then disposes of them His daughter is the target of much of his abuse and held as a minion to keep his house which is impoverished After she is beaten again as well as her Abigail, she runs to the only place where she feels she can be safe The Duke of Ashwicke, Ash, has befriended Keziah after she comes to him to tell of another of her father s evil plans which may mean his death.The murder is a mystery that Inspector Formby intends to find the answer Although he thinks that Lord Rennard is well deserved of his death, he needs to find the culprit.Who did what and when is the key to the mystery and it is not resolved until the end.

    Keziah s horrible father is a gold digger, and she overhears him planning to murder his next wife to be s son She goes to warn Ash, and they embark on a plot for Ash to kill him before he is killed But, Ash can t fire a pistol worth a darn, nor is he much of a fighter The plot thickens when Keziah is beaten by her father and escapes to Ash The father is murdered, then Ash is blackmailed, and everyone lies to Inspector Formby, who knows something is amiss With the couple protecting each other, and Ash falling for Keziah, his grandmother is concerned about scandal, and the other ladies in his family are grief stricken by the old man s demise The murders are interesting, and the layers deep I had some portion figured out, but it was cool how it all came together Love Keziah s strength, Ash s protectiveness, and Formby s persistence KU

    I love the unlikely hero plot line it isn t too often a really nice guys wins Keziah is a very likeable heroine and the story it s self is cute and has just enough darkness to not be too wholesome I did take issue with the portrayal of Formby in this book We have come to know and love the Inspector in the first books and his demeanor has fundamentally changed in this one He was a patient, steadfast, intelligent and kind hearted man in the first books He was a great detective, revered the law, but saw past all facades to the heart of the matter In this book he is irritable, rude, a bit brash and mistreats his constable He is not the man we were introduced to and nothing was mentioned about the change Was he sick Hurt Did some tragic event change him I miss the real Formby.

    How does she do itYet again Emma has given a read to fall in love with More beautiful characters, such as Ash, not the usual strapping hero but none the less, he s just as lovable, loyal to his own detriment but a fierce protector to those he loves Lady Todd is strong, beautiful and a crack shot, what could you ask for in a female lead If you try this story and like it you might want to try out Emma s other series, such has the Fae Legends, they are fantastic, Corin is without doubt the ideal male, he is perfection Thank you Emma for another fabulous read, just keep them coming, please.

    Good story, but.Ease review the ranking of the aristocracy A Duke should never be referred to as lord He is always referred to as Your Grace or the Duke of If he has a lesser title of Lord , he is still referred to as the highest rank he has Miss Todd should have been referred to as Duchess of Asheford or Her Grace when they came home Please check your references The author has a wonderful style and lively characters I would buy all of her books Just ease check your rankings.

    Oh dear God I had to stop this in the middle of the fifth chapter This is so simply written, but in a way that is so frustrating to read And the Hero comes off as weak, unintelligent, afraid of violence, not into manly things, but very into fashion The way the conversations were did not get me involved in the book at all Instead, it kept me ever aware that this is a story written from someone s imagination I never felt a part of the story I could go on but suffice it to say I HAD to stop because life is too short for bad books.
