Book Description

Her second day doing doctoral research in the basement archives of Siddley Hall, England's grandest Tudor home, American Antonia Townley stumbles upon the hall's curator with a knife plunged into his chest. Police suspect Antonia of being the killer because of two insignificant—to her—reasons: The first is the pesky matter of her fingerprints on the murder weapon. The second is the unfortunate email she had sent to her sister saying she would kill for the curator's job.

Handsome bachelor Frederick Percy, Lord Rockford of Siddley Hall, learns that the curator was on the trail of the Percy family monstrance, the most valuable monstrance in England before Henry VIII's dissolution. Frederick becomes convinced that the curator's death is tied to the priceless artifact, and he must find it before the killer does to free Antonia from suspicion of murder. More importantly, Frederick vows to protect the beautiful scholar against the menacing forces after her.

But as Frederick and Antonia crisscross England seeking information on the Percy Monstrance, it becomes clear that someone is stalking her every move. Could Frederick, the man Antonia has fallen in love with, be the very person who is out to destroy her?

I really loved my first episode of this exciting new series. The characters grabbed my interest right from the start. The romance between the two is already heating up and the story is so interesting I cannot wait for Episode Two!

5.0 out of 5 stars Off to a fast start January 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The opening chapters of Falling For Frederick introduce our heroine, an American doctoral student at Oxford, kneeling over the body of a murdered archivist, bloody knife in her hand. Enter our hero, a handsome earl and the owner of the estate. Add a priceless missing artifact, a surprising historical discovery, and a mystery to be solved, and you have the beginning of an exciting story. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment.

I would have liked a little more romance, or really any romance at all. The ending was very short and rushed. I would not recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars fast-paced read January 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my first book by this author but it won't be my last. I was reeled right in by the opener, and the pace never lets up. This is a great premise, and it has me intrigued, and waiting eagerly for the next installment.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Hum May 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I wonder if I had read this in one setting instead of in episodes if I would have enjoyed it more. The plot had promise but while I was disposed to like the characters, they never got engaged enough with each other to move me. I was disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful and cheap. February 28, 2013
By N.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very shallow in character developments. Bad logic, people look at things on a more practical format. I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT.
Read for a very light mind numbing experience.
Simply not believable and disappointing, the book does not live up to the summary. Not even worth the two dollars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Falling for Frederick October 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Antonia Townley is California girl enrolled at Oxford. For her dissertation she is researching five families from the Tudor era that were secretly practicing Catholicism. In her search she discovers the Percy family monstrance may not have been destroyed. Her search results in a murder which leads her to suspect everyone she comes in contact with including Frederick and her Prof. Simon. I highly recommend this book as it is at times comical, with all the nicknames Antonia comes up with for all of the characters, a spellbinding mystery and of course there is always that chance of love coming into play. I never guessed the person responsible for the murder.

More About the Author

Cheryl Bolen is the New York Times, USA Today best-selling author of more than a dozen Regency-set historical romance novels. Her books have placed in several writing contests, including the Daphne du Maurier, and have been translated into 11 languages. She was named Notable New Author in 1999, and in 2006 she won the Holt Medallion (Honoring Outstanding Literary Talent) for Best Short Historical Novel. In 2012 she won Best Historical in the International Digital Awards for eBooks published the prior year, and one of her 2011 novellas won Best Historical Novella. Her books have become Barnes & Noble and Amazon bestsellers.

Many of her readers love her many marriage of convenience stories. Her lighter books have been compared to Georgette Heyer, and her more emotional reads (where the heroine has many obstacles before her happy ending) have been compared to Mary Balogh.

Cheryl recently returned to her first love of romantic suspense and mystery with fast-paced plots featuring heroines in peril and the strong men they can lean on. It was these books which first got her noticed in the publishing world when her manuscripts won many contests.

Discuss Episode Five of "Falling for Frederick"
I remember as a child my mother read me Charlotte`s Web when it was serialized in a big-weekly paper. That was over 50 years ago but I am reminded of it every time a new episode of this book is delivered. The story is great & waiting to see what happens makes it even better

It can still be Simon, but who else. It has to be someone who knows the family. We need more people introduced.
