Review: A Little Mischief - Amelia Grey

A Little Mischief
Isabella Winslowe is finally gaining respectability when the unthinkable happens: she finds the Earl of Colebrooke's sister in the back garden with a stone cupid in her hand and a dead man at her feet. 
The last thing Isabella wants to deal with is a formidable earl who is willing to go to great lengths to protect his sister's reputation from a murder scandal. As Daniel Colebrooke begins following Isabella around the ton, desperate to keep her from spreading her story and making mischief, he can't help but notice how captivating she is. And if he's not careful, he could lose his heart along with his sister's reputation..

My thoughts:
Cute is the word, I often use cute about HR, but some just are that cute.

Isabella wants to be spinster, she thinks she will be free that way. And she also holds a club every week. A club named The Wallflower club by certain idiotic members of the ton. But back to Isabella who is outspoken, nice, fun and yes a troublemaker.

In comes Daniel, the brother of a member of her reading group. Oh he is an arrogant ass. At first that is, because he grows on you. But we all know they will fall in love..eventually. But before that there will be angry looks, banter and then, something quiet else.

But this is not just about their romance. There is also a missing body and Isabella sticking her nose where she should not. A light little murder mystery.

Conclusion:
A sweet romance with passion promised too, and a hint of murder.

What exactly is his hands touching...?

  1. I always have a tendency to fall in love with the arrogant ass in historical romance. I have no idea what that says about me. Maybe it's because I know they typically don't remain arrogant asses:) Looking forward to this one!
