I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
Enter Ms. Shore with a book that is hard to put down. She has written a good old fashioned rollicking tale of intrigue and suspense, featuring true-to-life characters placed in an historical context that evokes the period of which she is writing. Catherine Sheffield has risen from the depths of despair to lead a frivolously delightful upper class life in late 18th century England at the time of the American Revolution, but the specter of the hangman’s noose is never far from the surface.
We are sure that despite the efforts of her adorable friend, Lady Audrey Sheffield, her vengeful brother-in-law will discover her whereabouts and have her hanged for his brother's murder, a murder that she did not commit. Ms. Shore exhibits great ingenuity while at the same time maintaining a high sense of realism in unfolding the story and keeping the reader in a state of suspense. Her knowledge of the period - its customs and mores, the delicacies that the (wealthy) people were beginning to consume, its musical tastes - shines through, and none more so than the costume detail, described usually in erotic fashion as one piece of clothing or another is removed in a slow languid manner to cater to the needs of the reader.
Every woman should encourage the men in her life to read Ms. Shore’s short, punchy and highly readable novella so as to throw a little light on the seemingly Byzantine mind of “Woman”. In the meantime, she would do well to pick up a copy for herself and have a little fun along the way!
I really enjoy this book and look forward to reading more by this author
