Our Week in Books – Week 22, 2013


Been a busier reading week this week, primarily my good old favourite, the historical romance.

I seem to have been on a bit of a Mills and Boon kick this week, starting with His lady Mistress by Elizabeth Rolls.  I really enjoyed this one and if you are a fan of regency romance definitely worth a read – 4 stars.

I also read A Very Unusual Governess by Sylvia Andrew, another regency romance involving a gentleman and a supposed governess. This book made me laugh a lot in places – 4.5 stars.

How to sin Successfully by Bronwyn Scott is also an historical romance and quite coincidentally involves a governess. No, I haven’t suddenly gone on a mission to find all the books involving governesses but they seem to have found me! This had a bit of a mystery plot surrounding it and a truly despicable villain, overall a good story – 3.5 stars.

My last Mills and Boon book this week was The replacement Wife by Caitlin Crews – shock horror, not a historical romance! I was not overly keen on this one. I would have liked a bit more background information about the hero and the ending seemed too quick and convenient. However I did finish it – 2 stars.

I then read the first two books in a series by Liz Carlyle – One Little Sin and Two Little Lies. Watch out for full reviews coming soon.

In between all this I also read Forever by Jacquelyn Frank – again look for a full review coming soon.

So seven books this week, wow possibly a record, even for me.


Well Tracey puts me to shame this week (and the last couple!).  Back flare ups, visitors, and MCM London Comic-Con (not in that order!) put paid to a lot of reading I’ve been wanting to do.  Strong pain medication also makes what I have read a little fuzzy!  Fingers crossed I will be back in action soon or I may go a little (more) nuts!

Our Week in Books is a regular blog post from Tracey and Grete, catching up on everything they’ve read recently.

I'm a complete bookaholic and never want a cure... more shelf space maybe. The only things I love more than reading is my husband and my cats!
