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.

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.

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 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!

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.

This book is described as a murder romance. Unfortunately, it's not really a romance and hardly a mystery. Antonia discovers her supervisor, the Siddley Hall's curator with a knife plunged in his chest. Siddley's Lord Rockford returns home then and the two team up to solve this mystery. It sounds like a good story and I will admit the first few chapters were captivating.

But it quickly grew tedious. The author seems to have written a book and then realized it wasn't long enough so filled it in with pointless dialogue and unnecessary descriptions. For example: Antonia has blood on her hands after finding the curator and several hours later hasn't cleaned up. Lord Rockford suggests she wash up and she goes to the bathroom, but leaves the door open because she doesn't have to pee. Or does she? Oh, she might, so she returns to close the door and "pottied" then washed her hands. This is honestly a scene in the book. Do I need to know this? I wouldn't think so but apparently the author thought it was important. Much of the dialogue and descriptions are like this.

Then, the characters jump to ridiculous conclusions when trying to solve this mystery. It starts off with the detective suspecting Antonia of the murder right away although his reasoning was haphazard at best. If he was painted as a worthless detective then maybe I'd buy it, but he was supposed to be professional. All of the characters jump to ridiculous, ill-grounded conclusions, however, and I found myself thankful reality was not nearly as illogical.

Lastly, I think I could have suffered a poor mystery if there was a sizzling romance. There were two kisses and no chemistry between the characters.

Cannot relate to characters...shallow. Toomuch dtail about surroundings and none about making the characters believeable. All this interior dialogue about liking one another...love , jealousy, marriage ...and they know one another less than a day. Give me a break!

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.
