Just Reviewed Enoch’s “A Lady’s Guide to Improper Behavior” at SBR

leave a comment »

Folks, it’s Romance Saturday at Shiny Book Review (SBR), which is why I reviewed Suzanne Enoch’s Regency romance (with action/adventure and “coming of age” plotlines, all inclusive), A LADY”S GUIDE TO IMPROPER BEHAVIOR.  This is a good romance between Colonel Bartholomew James and Teresa “Tess” Weller — Col. James has been accused of making up an attack on his person by the Thuggee while he served in India and has come home scarred and in great pain, while Tess has denied herself all her life, pretending to be a social butterfly while writing an (anonymous) book on etiquette for Ladies of Quality.  But when Tess meets Col. James, sparks fly and things change for both of them.

I found this a realistic romance and enjoyed it thoroughly.  So if the thought of this book interests you — or if you’re just so bored you feel up to heading over to Shiny Book Review and reading all of my and Jason Cordova’s reviews — please head on over and read my review of Ms. Enoch’s interesting novel.  (Bon appetit — er, good reading!)
