Review

"Hilarious! Full of wit, history and passion, Sue London's debut The Trials of Artemis had me hooked from page one and wouldn't let me go (even to sleep) until the end." -Rose Gordon, USA Today bestselling and Award Winning Author

Delicious

"Captivating tale of complex characters exploring uninvited relationships, battling preconceptions and discovering twists and turns of human nature and a satisfying plot with equally satisfying intelligence. Can't wait to get to know the other Haberdashers!" -Amazon UK reader

I loved this story. Its amazing that its the authors debut novel because its right up there with all the other NY best seller books. It starts off in a library with our heroine Jack/Jackie/Jaqueline who is very intellectual and she is in the library at a big party and is trying to read a greek novel. Our hero Gideon/Giddy enters, for an asignation with a widow. Unfortunately he kisses her and doesnt realise til its too late and a crowd is there that its not the widow. He makes her an offer right then and there even though he never had any plans to ever marry. What he doesn't know at this stage is that Jack is a woman like none he has ever met before. She agrees to an engagement but plans to find him a a wife and he reciprocates from his friends.Jack has only ever wanted to be left alone with her books and has also no interest in marrying. Unfortunately the truth of why they get engaged comes out and so they have to marry immediately. That is where the story really takes off from. There is no villian in this story, no grand separation, just two people getting to know each other and falling in love. Its not chock full of sex or initimate scenes but is rather a romantic story about two people falling in love foibles and all. A truly wonderful story with really nice and fun characters.

The characters are well thought out and likeable. The element of history adds interest, but does not become ponderous. I enjoyed seeing the relationship play out between the two main characters, especially since the author decided to make them both forthright and honest with each other, being able to pick up on emotional cues, instead of relying on misdirection and misinterpretation to lengthen the story, as is usually the case in this genre. I would have given it five stars, but the grammar nazi in me noticed a few inconsistencies/misspelled words that the editors missed (perhaps it's a kindle thing? Many of the books I've read on the kindle seem to suffer from this). All in all, this book is an enjoyable break from reality, and I would definitely read the next two books in the series.

I was surprised and pleased by how well-written this book is - great plot, character development and a heroine who is very likable. Sue London's writing is reminiscent of both Amanda Quick and Georgette Heyer and I enjoyed this first installment so much that I felt compelled to write a review, which is something I could never be bothered to with any previous book purchases. I was disappointed when I realized that Trials of Artemis was only recently published and that I will have a long wait before I find out what happens to the other Haberdashers. Great new author!

I loved this story, the love story between Jacqueline "Jack" Walters and Gideon Wolfe, Earl of Harrington is more than a bluestocking, who has to marry a rake. She's a weapons master who takes sword play and archery very seriously. When confronted by Gideon Wolfe, Earl of Harrington who mistakes her for another woman, Jack freezes and hesitates before letting him know he has the wrong person. That delay causes Gideon to announce their engagement when they are caught by others.

The story of the Haberdashers Club is delightful and I can't wait to hear mare about it! This book is definitely not in the usual trend of regency novels.

Jack and Gideon are a great couple, instead of crying Jack gets angry when he is being obstinate, Jack gets in his face and stands up to him. How they manage to reconcile their differences is amusing and funny. Loved it! Can't wait for the next story.

This was a good story about Jack and Gideon who find they have to marry because they are caught in a library alone together. Jack (Jaqueline) does not want to marry. She`s planned to stay a spinster for the rest of her life since she doesn`t consider herself marriage material. Gideon is very conservative and always does what he considers is right.

I loved Jack from page one. She was a great heroine - I mean, who doesn`t love a heroine who can use a sword and is well versed in Greek philosophy? She is also a kind person. I loved the idea of her being in a "boy`s club" with two other women, one of which we met in this book (and who will apparently be the heroine in the next one). It took some time for me to warm to Gideon, though. And when I finally did, he turned nasty (though his nastiness was well anchored in the time he lived in). He`s pretty lucky to have found Jack, the way I see it. But he did come around and I liked him better at the end. And he did, of course, save Jack from scandal (after causing that scandal).

This book could do with an editor, though. There are quite a few errors - historical and continuance. I found myself taking notes at one point and that is never a good thing. So me giving this book four stars in spite of the errors is a testament to the good storyline. I had a hard time putting the book down.

I`m looking forward to the next book. Both the hero and the heroine in the next book were very intriguing in this story.

Once I accepted what I think was a weak reason for this couple to get together, I started to enjoy the characters. Then I got tired of their bickering and hurt feelings. The story takes an interesting turn about 3/4 of the way in and took on a different tone. My Regency Romance hers are: Georgette Heyer, early Carla Kelly. Joan Smith, writers with strong female characters who didn't bend to arrogant males. Our heroine in this book is the same except a lot more strident. What surprised me was how explicit the sex scenes were and they seemed like filler to extend the book. I think the story of how "The Haberdashers" came together was cute but I'll not be reading the sequels.
