Description

It is rare that a heroine in a period book gets that kind of growth, especially as it was not always forward. This sounded good and I wanted to give it a try, but I did not experience main character Lady Mary at all as she was described and ultimately that was a deal-breaker for me.

This story is not only deep in history but also bravery of Lady Mary trying to prove her worth in society.Anyhoo, Lady Mary is not only a skilled gymnast and a crack shot but turns out to be quite the drawing room detective, solving domestic mysteries pertaining to lost brooches and irregular charity outgoings. Differing slightly from the usual Mills and Boon romance novel, the love affair between the books two central characters, Lady Mary Montagu Douglas Scott and Colonel Walter Trefusis, is the definition of a slow-burn yet takes somewhat of a back seat. The delight is that it has none of the cringe moments and the neat working of some real people, places and events into this tale gives it a solid polish. The mystery aspects were spread out through the book like little vignettes, building in importance as Mary learned and grew into who she was meant to be. There is a lot of focus on the plot surrounding the hero and heroine, rather than their relationship with each other.

Bookish, fiercely intelligent, and a keen observer, Mary has deliberately cultivated a mousey persona that allows her to remain overlooked and significantly underestimated by all. We are repeatedly told how independent and ingenious Mary is, but she comes across as whiny, and woe-is-me. It reminded me of my own time at Shrub;land hall ;) The stories deal with lots of important themes and for that reason I think these books are very grown up romances.

And soon Tre will see that between diamond thefts and scandal there is more to this wallflower than meets the eye. Lady Mary Montagu Douglas Scott is the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch and the youngest. Pacy, romantic, and fun, A Most Intriguing Lady documents one remarkable woman’s ability to be both the perfect lady, and a perfectly talented detective.
