I wanted this book to be a 5 star one, but little things kept it from being that for me. I loved the story and, as always, the writer got the hero right. Thomas was everything a romance novel hero should be. Patience, the heroine, fared a little worse. I lost some patience with her. At times, she bordered dangerously close to TSTL territory for me. I found her social blunders a little monotonous. She surely should have known what to say and how to behave. Just a minor quibble, but it did bother me. Also, things seemed a bit rushed. Just when Thomas and Patience seemed to be getting somewhere, poof!, the scene was over. I felt the transitions were a bit rough. All in all, I liked this book, but felt the characters were not developed as much as they should have been, and the pacing seemed a little off. It was sort of like--Gothic Light.

Somewhat predictable plot (though the "monster" was fun), but interesting characters (charming and intelligent heroine and a quick-witted hero) and a good love story make this an enjoyable read.

I didn't even read the epilogue on this one. It's just so predictable (I know, for a romance novel), but without the sparks and life that make other similarly predicatble romances wonderful. Without that, all I notice are the flaws. I really wanted to like the hero and heroine. I enjoy historical romances that give the heroine something to do other than plan parties, but she never came alive and her dialogue was off-putting at several points to where I just couldn't find anything likeable. :( I mean, she's not acerbic, vain, pms-ish, or whiny. She should be likeable... The hero is the same and he also never comes alive, although I didn't dislike anything I read from him. Anyway, I guess I found the romance off-putting too. They don't seem to talk much and run around kissing and making out, but there's no real heat and the heroine feels no guilt or consideration for her reputation as she publically gallivantes around with the heroine. I'll admit, I like a little(very little) angst and drama about why they shouldn't be together because this is a historical and good girls wouldn't have done that without struggling a little over the desision(sp?). It wouldn't have had to b e much, just a moment in which she acknowledged that what she was doing was against society's strictures and could have acutal consequences. :sigh: I guess that's why I couldn't like the main characters, writing these reviews really helps put the mind in order. Anyway, so the writer waves a magic wand and the heroine's bad and unsavory reputation is dismissed and the world is sunlight and roses again, at least, that's the impression I got.Read more ›

A perfectly adequate read. I liked both lead characters, but the mystery didn't live up to its hype. Honestly, the author should have cut the mystery down by at least half.

I wish that some of the details of Patience's background had been revealed in conversation rather than just in her mind (she could have told Thomas why she'd never gone fishing, instead of just thinking about it). That would have helped establish more emotion between the two.

Best about this book: I really enjoyed that Thomas got awkward whenever things started to get real. When he realized that Patience's reputation was undeserved he got as foot-in-mouth as Patience.

Minor complaint: Thomas smirked with far too great a frequency, but somewhere near the end the author poked fun at his tendency to smirk and lounge against every surface in sight which nearly made up for it.

This was an enjoyable, quick read, but it didn't really wow me. Mallory usually has a very distinctive style to her writing, so I was surprised by how anonymous this one seemed. It was pleasant, but rather bland, and was missing that spark that I'm used to feeling with her.

I thought Patience's overactive imagination and her inability to keep her foot out of her mouth in social situations was fun. She felt a bit silly at times, but I enjoyed her. The same goes for the hero, Thomas. I think the title of the book is completely out of place though. The hero is far, far from wicked. He's a regular, nice guy who is very easy to like.

There were a lot of red herrings thrown around and it left the final reveal of the villain feeling a bit underwhelming. All that build up and that was it? It was a little disappointing.

I thought the interactions between Patience and Thomas were cute. I liked when they'd have breakfast together and he'd relax and open up. It was amusing how he'd act grumpy and cold again and sweep out of the room when someone else joined them. Mustn't let them know he's a nice guy, after all. ;)

I Liked this book alot better than the other 4 books I have read by Ms. Mallory. This one made sense and connected all of the characters in the story line. In her other books she dropped the story line and was quite repetative in what she wrote thur out the books, But she got it right with the Viscounts Wicket Ways! Interesting story of inventions being made labortories and spys trying to steal new inventions being developed put that with romance and you get a very good story to read. Finally for me she has redeemed herself!
