Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun! Really enjoyed this book, was already a fan of Gail's Parasol Protectorate series, so it was natural for me to check our her newest adult series. Things never get too serious and I always find the writing light and enjoyable. Always nice to see a strong female lead!
