Rezension zu "The Georgian Rake" von Alice Chetwynd Ley

fast-paced and sweet
IraWiravor 8 Jahren

This is not the first book by Alice Chetwynd Ley that I've read so I already knew that I lke her books. Whereas I compared her book "Letters of a Spy" to a nice reliable cup of tea, "The Georgian Rake" has much more of the champaign in it that I compared the cup of tea to. This book kept me glued to the reader and I enjoyed every single page of it.
I loved the well developed, authentic and intersting characters and I loved the story itself. It is a fast-paced story, well plotted and really well written that made me "turn" the pages impatiently because I just had to know what would happen!
As for the story, well, I was a bit irritated when I read the blurb because I found that it was a bit different than the story that I read but nevertheless, I really loved this story.
When Isabell is coerced by her mother to agree to a profitable marriage with a known rake she has to give up all hope to marry the one who she has been in love with forever. Her sister Amanda though is no one to sit by idly while her beloved sister makes such a monumentous mistake and sets out to set things right. Amanda being Amanda, loving, charming, straight-forward and utterly reckless, some of her actions might be considered least. Fortunately there's no lack of knight's in shining armour to come to her rescue and very soon it is not just her safety that is at stake but also her heart....
I really loved this book and can definitely recommend it!

Rezension zu "Letters For A Spy" von Alice Chetwynd Ley

Intriguing story
IraWiravor 8 Jahren

"Letters for a Spy" is a really nice book that kept me well entertained. It is not one of those books that you can't put down and that are highly addictive but it is one of those books that are like the familiar cup of tea on a winter's eve after a glass of champaign at the party the day before. You know what you want, you get what you want and you enjoy every page of it. Reliable, sweet but nevertheless never dull or boring.

The story is well written and the characters are also well developed which draws the reader in and lets him take part in the happenings. I enjoyed to see Elizabeth find her happiness even though - well, who am I to doubt the magic of true love and how fast it works, so... I am just happy to find Elizabeth well settled at the end of the book with someone I can whole-heartedly approve of.

If you want to read the book because you like a good spy story, well, then I'm not sure if it is really the right story for you because the focus is definitely not on espionage, this is just a part of the story. Oh, actually there's not much romance in it at the beginning either but it is a fast-paced and interesting story that is really nice and I enjoyed reading it.
It is not the first book by Alice Chetwynd Ley that I've read and it won't be the last. Like a cup of tea, this book is something nice to read on a cozy winter's eve - or in the afternoon or  - whenever you like!
