The good: Emily Murdoch is actually an excellent writer. I've read other books from her and enjoyed them so it's not surprising that I enjoyed this one as well. She always does a great job in developing her characters and did so here as well. Frankly, as usual, this is just a fun book. I like having that when I want an enjoyable escapist Regency read.
The bad: Ok, a bit of a stretch here. I guess you could say that the wager is an overused trope. That's certainly true enough but, so what? It's overused because it's fun and works and that's true enough here too. I gues the only fair "bad" thing here is something another reviewer caught. The author isn't authentic on use of Regency period titles. If memory serves - and leaving courtesy titles (i.e. The 2nd title of a lord which his eldest son gets to use as a courtesy) - only any son of a Duke or Marquess and (perhaps, I'm vague on this one) first son of an Earl get to use the title Lord. Other sins are simply "the Honorable". Ditto for daughter's use of the title Lady. A google search (which I'm too lazy to do, so I don't guarantee 100% accuracy) can correct all of this. If inaccuracy on that sort of thing bothers you then it's a "bad" point about this book (and I suspect others by this author as well). Personally, however, it didn't take away from the story for me do I'm not too upset by it.
The ugly: I'm trying hard here but I can't think of anything. I'm not changing my lead in, however, as "the Good and the Bad" doesn't have the sane sort of ring to it!
I happily recommend this book.
