Cindy Holbrook: Lord Sayer's Ghost

Omances can be hit or miss for me I don t know the history nough to know if the details are correct and I d rather have the story take me away I d never read anything by Cindy Holbrok so when I saw this book and there was a cat on the cover I had to pick it up I was intrigued by the premise He s pretending to be dead in order to prove someone wanted to murder him Okay I can go along with that Prudence who is sort of family is the only one who can figure out if he s truly been almost murderedI had to admit this one was a tad slow in spots I put it down and had a hard time coming back to it I guess it s because it seemed to drag I wasn t as caught up in the characters as I might have liked It s nearly four hundred pagesPrudence could be a bit of a prude but I rather liked her lack of The Magic Rolling Pin experience and her getting flustered when shended up in LOVED IT Oh my I debated over the rating here I knocked off a star because I figured out the culprit pretty Indecent... Exposure (Indecent, early on but truth be told I really didn t care in thend and raised it up to a 45This was a near perfect regency romp with lots of laughs and a devilish rake of a ghost and a wonderfully plucky heroine There were no major surprises plot wise but it was well written and just plain fun The author did a wonderful job in developing the relationship between Lord Sayer and Prudence in particular they forge a lovely relationship becoming friends Not Without a Fight even as they fall in love despite the cliched plot It wasn t completely terrible but I had to force myself to finish it All the characters had stuttering problems or at least that s what I assume because of all the broken sentences But but I can t Yes yes I will We we should go And the word indeed was WAY overused The plot line became laughable when the ghost started showing himself in public areas like pubs barnstc I really Garden Bouquets and Beyond enjoyed this one It was full of fun characters had a bit of a mystery ghosts real and not so real a very fun older woman character Aunt Seraphina who just KNEW the lobster salad was going to be VERY crunchy LOLand a nice love story It wasverything I njoy in some light reading to pass a stormy da. Ng to have passed on so he could unmask his would be murderer Now he had just stolen a kiss and reuested Prudence to host a séance Dare she trust this rogue who was far from what he seemed Could a spirited scoundrel properly woo her Perhaps with a little faith a lot of love and maybe some helpfrom the other si.

Thank you Goodreads Thank you If it weren t for these 2 websites I would have missed so many great books like this oneI devoured this book It was so ntertaining It is the kind of Regency romance I love to read cuz there is actually a plot the characters have personalities there are clever situations the romance is believable and cleanSo to describe the positive things Prudence oh boy the last Regency I read Dangerous by Amanda uick has a heroine named Prudence So the first pages I visualized this Prudence as the other Prudence until I found out pleasantly that these 2 girls were completely different This Prudence was witty nothing annoying had a great chemistry with the Hero and was smart not because the author is telling us that but because her actions are The Management Bible enough reason to prove it The times she uarreled with the Hero went smoothly not forced and the reader can see why the Hero falls in love with her Lord Sayer the negative aspect of the Hero could be his name Sinjun What a name And he is what a rake should be at least in myyes charming witty amused with all things Zu schnell especially with our heroine a man who likes adventures sometimes naughty when it comes to women a man who has mistresses but treats them well He is not one of these heroes who has I cannot love her I am cold and never have loved attitude And he wasxcellent as a ghost And oh my the kisses they shared All very clean of course but so passionate Plot not predictable as most regency romance books Prudence and her Aunt live in this Mansion haunted by the ghost of Lord Sayer Aunt Saraphina who is a darling believes in paranormal activities but not Prudence Then she finds out that Lord Sayer is pretending to be dead to catch his murderer someone attempted to murder him 3 times She joins forces with him and she actually helps him she is not a bother at all When they managed to reunite all the members of the family in the mansion it has a Clue air the murder mystery game Secondary characters all of them were charming in some way or another Even the rival or the mistress or the Dandy or the murderer Ghost there is a real ghost in the story somet. Is he a ghostOutraged screams choed through Shadow Hall and Prudence was ready to killLord Sayer If he weren't dead already that is His mischievous antics made help impossible to keep Prudence wished the seductive spirit would simply take one step beyondand stay there A rakeBut no insouciant ghost was going to.

Hing I have never read before in a Regency And it is a nice ghostNegative aspect noneRecommended to readers who njoy GH books There is ven a cat in the story and all the fans of Georgette know that an animal is important in a story mostly it is a dog but anyway It was a bit long winded in spots and took me almost a year to read because I just forgot about it It is cute I liked this one but thought it was a little long I kind of got a little bored towards the nd The romance was okay I liked Prudence but was also kind of sad that she felt like she had to change to win Lord Sayer Personally I agreed with her morals Lord Sayer was a total rake I did like that being dead showed him how mpty that kind of lifestyle was and how not only seeing how little people missed him but Prudences goodness really changed him The mystery was okay I again thought it started to drag on a bit It was ntertaining though Content Clean No bedroom scenes but does have innuendo including mistresses And one side character is hinted at being gay There might have been a bit of swearing I can t remember This novel was a lot of fun It kind of reminded me of the off beat comedic mysteries like a Fish Called Wanda and the like The characters were amusing and the plot light A clean read and doesn t rely on the typical bodice ripper devices and is pure storytelling Lots of twists and turns A lot of madcap characters and Invisible (The Curse of Avalon everyone is a suspect as to who would kill Lord Sayer However the part that couldn t be smoothed over for me is when they were in London how Sayer could have been spotted or discovered At hisstate sure no problem but in his townhousemmmnot so Yummy Supper easy to hide A fun read all the same Excellent Regency with perfect blend of romance humor and mystery I ve only read two of Cindy Holbrook s novels but I m already hooked I just wish they were inbook so I could could take them all with me I just loved Prude Sinjun Aunt Saraphena Benny Plume El Ebony the alcoholic cat Mr Tremble ah hell I loved all of them Even Henries and his beloved brick A ghost who happens to be very real and uite the rake That s Lord SayerHistorical Drive Prudence from this castle Sayer's will declared that any relative able to inhabit it for one year would inherit his state Prudence was only a distant relative to be sure but she simply had nowhere lse to go Or a man to loveExcept into the arms ofLord Sayer The very much alive nobleman was just pretendi.
