4 stars – Historical/Regency Romance I’d lowered my expectations for this after hearing from several friends that the Huxtable series isn’t among Balogh’s best work, and I mainly read First Comes Marriage in order to have the background for Then Comes Seduction that I checked out from the library, since I so love a good rake story. I’m happy to report that after a somewhat slow beginning in which I almost abandoned it as a DNF, I ended up really liking this book, especially the cheerful, find joy in the everyday things and moments in life heroine. Unfortunately, I also as equally and emphatically disliked the stuffy, snobby, callous, condescending, and unappreciative hero, nor did I ever truly warm up to him, even after his fairly hasty, and rather late in coming, love realization and declaration. Still, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it, despite that the hero might not have deserved such a whimsical, happy, optimistic, and loyal wife, so I’m rating it solid 4 stars. And I’m looking forward to reading Then Comes Seduction and more of Balogh’s (better) books. :)
A good thriller, mystery, difficult to guess who done it.
