    1 thought on “A Crime of Manners”

    1. This is probably not the worst book I have ever read, but it may be the STUPIDEST. It was trite, banal and riddled with clichés. And don’t get me started on the sophomoric storyline. Really? REALLY? I’m sure I lost several brain cells along the way. The only reason I finished this book was because I have book club coming up tomorrow, and I didn’t want to start another book and not be able to finish it by then. (I always have to be reading something!) I have 2 others in this series – I w [...]

    2. There is something about the way Rosemary Stevens handles her Regency stories that makes one beg for more. Her Beau Brummell series has always been a favorite and this first in another series is delightful. With all of the typical comedy of errors and manners, the wonderful addition of Knight gives the book an added form of whimsey. This adds more to the reading experience than just a run of the mill Regency romance. Charming!

    3. Giles Vayne, the eighth Duke of Winterton, was rich, handsome, and arrogant enough to assume that every eager mother was throwing her daughter at him. He was right, of course. Unfortunately that cynicism, plus an ill-mannered comment, made a charming country miss the subject of town scuttlebutt before her first ball!True, Henrietta Lanford had dreamed endlessly about his lordship--until his scandalous comment fueled her ire and her brazen public rebuke delighted the gossips to no end. She decide [...]

    4. A fun read, and very tongue-in-cheek about the names. The "befuddled aunt" = Lady Fuddlesby. The country landowner = Mr. Shire. The French hairstylist = Monsieur Cheveux. One of the villains = Mr. Snively. Etc. At least, I hope she was being tongue-in-cheek about it! The romances ended well, and there were enough twists to keep it from being too predictable. The POV shifts made the narration a bit distant, but not confusing, and it was fun getting into the other characters' heads now and then.

    5. I could not resist reading this Regency romance. First, it's part of the Cats of Mayfair series. Second, it has an African Grey parrot in it. The romance was okay - some of the behavior of the heroine was quite ridiculous - but I enjoyed the parrot, which nags the current duke in the voice of his dead father to get married and produce an heir. The parrot was definitely the best part of the book.
