Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Fascinating Historical Romance – A Most Intriguing Lady by Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and Marguerite Kaye

My Review:

This is a historical romance set in Victorian times
Involving mystery and some serious crimes!
It has characters who actually lived in those days
But the events are fictional portrayals.

Lady Mary likes to watch and disappear from view
Seeing how others relate and what they do.
She abhors the spotlight, preferring hiding in plain sight,
Observant and skilled at putting wrongs to right.

Colonel Walter Trefusis is a guest at her family home
With plans and secrets of his very own.
The two form an alliance to help to solve a crime
Will it lead to anything more despite their limited time?

A lady wanting more than only being someone's wife,
Wanting to find a way to make something of her life.
Fighting expectations is difficult for her though,
Finding more about herself will help her have a go.

With mystery and intrigue and self discovery, too,
Historical facts are woven all the way through.
A skilful blend of fact and fiction, too,
Creates this story I recommend to you.

For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
As I share with you this, my honest review.


The new sweeping historical romance from the Sunday Times bestselling author.

Scandals, seduction and secrets… and one woman’s quest to uncover the truth. The most intriguing historical romance of 2023. Perfect for fans of Bridgerton.

Wallflower Lady Mary Montagu Douglas Scott has a secret. Moving effortlessly unnoticed amongst the ballrooms and palaces of Queen Victoria, her sharp intelligence and keen powers of observation allow her to quietly solve society crimes – coming to the rescue of those whose pride and fortune is at stake.

Overlooked and underestimated, Mary finds missing money, recovers stolen jewellery and saves reputations. When she meets Colonel Walter Trefusis, an unlikely and spirited alliance is formed. But Mary has more than met her match in her sleuthing partner. As she battles the expectations of society and her family, Mary must follow her heart – whatever the cost…
