A LITTLE MISCHIEF may be purchased here.

Amelia Grey

Daniel Fletcher Colebrooke, the Seventh Earl of Colebrooke, has inherited his title after the unexpected death of his brother.  Unused to his duties as the head of the family, Daniel goes to London to search for a bride.  When Daniel learns that his sister, Gretchen, has been attending a reading group called the Wallflower Society by the ton, he decides to put a stop to her association with the group.  Miss Isabella Winslowe has started her reading group in an attempt to get the shyer misses of the ton to come out of their shell.  Since Isabella fought shyness her first season, she hopes to help others overcome this disability.  When Gretchen is found by Isabella standing over the body of a notorious gamester, and then, the body disappears Daniel and Isabella must work together to save Gretchen's reputation and solve the mystery.

A LITTLE MISCHIEF is an entertaining regency romance with great characters and an intriguing plot.  However, if you are a real stickler for historical accuracy, this may not be the book for you.  There were a few inaccuracies as far as titles are concerned.  Luckily, this didn't detract much from my enjoyment of the book.  Daniel is a great hero, who thinks that he wants a biddable bride, but soon comes to reevaluate his criteria, after meeting Isabella.  Isabella makes a great heroine, who thinks she wants to remain an independent spinster but can't seem to fight the overwhelming attraction to Daniel.  It is hilarious how Daniel tries to keep Isabella out of the investigation, but she winds up in the middle of things.  These two make a great couple, and the mystery ends unexpectedly.

NOTE:  I received this book in return for an impartial review.

Well, now I am going to have to buy 'another' book, because this one sounds like it is right up my alley. Thank you for sharing the review!

This sounds like a nice twist on the typical historical romance. At least for me - I don't think I've ever dread one with a mystery.
