No Life for a Lady (Ladies of the Order Book 5) Kindle Edition
♥ Read the final thrilling installment of the Ladies of the Order series! ♥
After almost a year spent playing chaperone to Mr Daventry’s female enquiry agents, Miss Trimble knows she must find a new position. All his agents are married, and so what other reason could he have for calling her to his office late at night? Except her employer is a master matchmaker, a man who has discovered her true identity, knows her real name and her darkest secret. A man who leaves her no choice but to confront her past and work alongside his client—the illegitimate son of an earl.
Alexander Grayson believes he knows who killed his brother. But he needs proof and cannot simply barge into a man’s home and rummage in his armoire. The perfect solution presents itself in the guise of a woman hiding from her past. But when the lady arrives expecting him to hire her as his enquiry agent, she is stunned to find he has a more shocking proposal.
Can a woman everyone believes is dead overcome her distrust of men?
Will the couple’s shared goals lead to more than friendship?

Grayson is illegitimate and has known Daventry since school when he suggests marrying Olivia so they both can put closure to their dilemmas he agrees.
Olivia is shocked what he suggests but agrees.
They both believe her brother Hamilton is responsible for her beating and 2 deaths but things are not what they appear.
As Olivia and Grayson grow closure so does a manipulator and killer.
A wonderful story with a beautiful ending.
Having read all of Adele Clee’s books, most recently the Ladies of the Order, I have been waiting with great anticipation for this amazing book. No Life for a Lady surpassed all my wishes for a wonderful read. The emotions it drew from me were both bittersweet and joyful. Bittersweet because it is the end of a fantastic series, but joyful because two long-suffering, cruelly treated people find true love and despicable villains finally receive long overdue justice.
When the Order’s female enquiry agents (heroines) in the first four books are not investigating and actively working for the Order, they live in a home run by Miss Trimble. However, Miss Trimble is no mere chaperone or housekeeper. She is highly educated and becomes a friend to each woman. But Miss Trimble is not her name and she is hiding from her past in fear.
Mr. Daventry, the Order’s leader, introduces her to Mr. Alexander Grayson to aid them both with solving a mystery from the past that has viciously affected both of their lives. Surrounded by cruelty, lies and life-threatening danger, she and Alexander must learn to trust each other in order to protect themselves as they seek to learn the secret of the mystery.
In No Life for a Lady, Adele Clee has spun a thrilling mystery within a heart-warming romance. No Life for a Lady is an absolutely amazing book. I highly recommend it.
With her signature mystery, suspense and wonderful romance, Adele has outdone herself with the last in this intriguing series!!
Finally Miss Trimble, the chaperone, gets her own story and we find out all about her!
She ends up with Alexander, who is expecting an inquiry agent but finds much more in Olivia!
You will not be able to stop until you turn the last page and sigh....
