"This entire series has been fantastic! A very tough female heroine, mystery plot, interesting setting, and romantic without being too steamy. The covers make them look like bodice rippers, but they're actually great mysteries with well-developed characters. 1st of 4, with another coming."
"I honestly thought I wasn't going to like this series...imagine a middle aged Sherlock Holmes interested in a teenage flapper? But I found them to be very intelligent mysteries and the characters somehow very believable. Only downside is it's a lengthy series and by now the format is fairly predictable."
"This book, the 1st in a series, was very good and will definitely satisfy fans of the Lady Julia Grey series. Unfortunately the series has lost steam a bit in a way the Grey series hasn't, but a new installment may pick up steam."
"I don't think Georgette Heyer can do any wrong. Discovering her regency romances is like finding out Jane Austen came back from the dead to write another 30 novels. I look forward to reading them all."
"Sexy, adventurous, historical, smart. This book is the first in a long series that I'm happy to be reading through. The characters are always so thoroughly likeable - who can resist a smart-mouthed heroine and a dashing rogue?"
"I have re-read this book at least 3 times and it just keeps getting better. All ages would enjoy this series and the two main characters are simply fantastic. I actually have always wished they would make this book into a movie a la The Mummy."
