Series: Devilish Debutantes, #1
Release Date: July 17, 2017
Tracy’s rating: 3.5/4 of 5 stars
I am going to go with a 3.5 star rating – rounded up.
As far as debut novels go, this was one of the better ones that I have read. The author has a nice writing style, the book flows nicely and her characters were likable and her plot was believable. HOWEVER, the book has adultery and anyone who follows my reviews knows this is a problem for me. Now with this book, not all is as it seems, but that doesn’t change the fact that Cecily engaged in an affair with Stephen while she was Flavion’s wife.
I really can’t go too much into the plot without totally ruining the book for you – but suffice it to say – the book has a lot of twists and turns, a poorly used heroine, a noble hero, a whacko mistress, a self-centered, immature, selfish husband, a mangy mutt, good friends, steamy love scenes (that I didn’t enjoy because of the aforementioned adultery, but probably would have loved otherwise), snakes (both literally and figuratively), dips in the Serpentine, sword fights, some amusing moments and some heartbreaking moments and FINALLY a HEA that didn’t seem like it could ever be.
I will definitely be looking for this author’s future work and would have no problem recommending this book – as I said, all is not as it seems!
