Who she will really choose Adrian although a gentleman once had a secret life in his past as well but that kind of life is history until his wife starts acting a bit odd and he is determined to find out why When he discovers what is really going on he decides to play a game with Evelyn one that could bring in a danger to them both that neither of them could foresee and with test the bounds of their loveMy Wicked Little Lies is the second in this series and I have seen this one on the shelves for months and even though its been a while since I have read from this author I thought why not So the minute I got home I started reading and it caught my attention from the very first chapter and held it until the very last I have to say this is probably one of my favorite books so far from this author I have always loved all the other books that I had read previous by Alexander however this one I think tops them all I have a certain weakness for spy stories especially in a historical romance and the setting was just perfect I just loved how the characters in the book had already fallen in love and takes places two ears after they get married and we see a lovely story unravel with an thrilling plot that curled my toes with anticipation the characters strongly portrayed and so endearing one couldn t help but fall in love with Evelyn and Adrian and even the side characters as well I think one of my favorite aspects of this book is how Evelyn is very strong willed but not too strong just enough that just wanted me to shout You go Girl Adrian is very Alpha at times and very stubborn and it was almost comical watching these two hash it out at different segments throughout the story Overall a beautifully written story with a balanced flow well written characters and a plot that will steal Ngôi nhà xưa your breath andyour heart Definitely a Keeper This book was uniue because I think it is only one of two historical romances I have read that begins after the hero and heroine are already married but not estranged A very enjoyable read witty and full of surprisesI ve come to expect uite a bit from Ms Alexander when I read her now I expect her characters to be likeable smart and witty What I love is that I can count on Ms Alexander to deliver This book has all of the aboveI thought it might be like that movie Mr and Mrs Smith but it wasn twhich is a good thing In this Victorian setting we first see Eve an agent of the crown age 27 retiring from severalears as a spy She is addressing her letter to Sir That is all she s ever known about him Well not completely She s been borderline flirting with him via these letters and he has flirted right back but she s ending their I m hesitant to use the word relationship relationship He is her road never traveledEve marries a steadfast courteous responsible man named Adrian who is everything she has ever dreamed normal The opposite of her fast paced life And they are so happyfor 2 Firing Schedules for Glass - The Kiln Companion years Then Eve is blackmailed back into the Agency Spoiler Alert kind of It s not really a spoiler but will mark it as such anywaysA few twists and turns led me to the right assumption that Adrian is Sir not a spoiler sinceou pretty much know by the second chapter But what I won t spoil for Adam and the Ants you is whether he knows Eve and his darling wife Evelyn are one and the same or notA few twists and turns caught me off guard and we have Adrian thinking his wife is having an affair What does he do Why burst in on the couple of course And naturally he s wrong causing much embarrassment and gaining Eve a wonderful new friend who I never in a millionears thought I would like But I did Again kudos to Ms Alexander for twisting the plot in a way that had me expecting one thing but instead something completely different happens And the fun of this story is that I never feel confused or irritated by too much going on it flows well and it s easy to readVictoria Alexander has a way of making me think she s using a clich and then skillfully turning it around on me until I can t figure out why I ever doubted her originality I love her dialogue and I truly enjoy the characters and plots This is my third or fourth read of hers and I can t wait until the nextThank ou to Kensington for the ARC Taking place during the Victorian era MY WICKED LITTLE LIES gives us a strong independent heroine who knows her own mind Will Adrian manage his wife the spy before it s too late or will he finally realize that there s no controlling Evie without some well deserved groveling Entertaining repartee is the best part of this engaging historical r I just finished reading My
Wicked Little Lies And It Little Lies and it pretty good I d give it a 45 out of 5 simply because while it was enjoyable there were a few slow moments where I wanted to skip parts For the most part the plot was fantastic there was a lot going on to grab the attention but a couple times it moved a little slow I really liked reading this story though and I wouldn t mind reading it again and while I got this book free I would not regret having paid for it The characters were believable the plot uniue and unlike anything I ve read before It was a pleasant change to the clich normally created in a historical romance I especially liked the way Evie played such a large part of the story and not just in the ballroom but on the battle field as well I know that is hard to do given the time period and I am impressed *LOVE LOVE LOVE THE STORY DEFINITELY RECOMMENDEDTHE ENDING WAS *LOVE LOVE the story Definitely recommendedThe ending was huge shockI wasn t really prepared for it so that s good and I loved the secondary romance that went along side by side with the main plot My favorite part would have been the Rouse section however as I really love a little revenge in romances particularly when ou know the characters will end up together regardless Over all it s one of the better romances I ve read lately and I look forward for from this autho. Espectabil plin de demnitate Dar chiar şi bărbaţii cu un comportament ireproşabil au propriile secrete Secrete pe care le ascund de restul lumii de familii de soţii Secrete care au un preţ Acum vălul care le acoperă este pe punctul să se destrame şi jocul ademenitor de a şoarecele şi pisica va pune la încercare limitele unei iubiri considerate de nezdruncin. Beryl Dunwell came to visit and they got the idea of her letting Adrian know that she had decided to have an affair with Sir She sent a note saying that she would meet him in the same room where he had burst in on Beryl and Radington Adrian went there and she was behind a screen pretending to be undressing while he was getting madder and madder He was just about to confront her and admit to Sir being Adrian when some men came in and kidnapped him Eve went to Max and they figured out that Max s assistant was the culprit but they still didn t know why They hoped that Adrian had been taken to the same warehouse that Max had arranged for Eve to be taken just the night before It was there that they found Adrian Eve confronted the man holding a knife to Adrian s throat It seemed the man was her cousin He had killed his own father and Eve s guardian along with the former director to make it look like the plot was against the department When in actuality he was after money that would be coming to Eve when she turned 30 the next week If her husband were murdered first his money would also come to Eve If Eve were to have died first her money would then go to her husband He planned to kill Eve after her birthday so he could claim all of her possessions as her only living relative He didn t know of her connection and her skill with a gun He thought that she wouldn t shoot him but she proved him wrong and he ended up dead Adrian was saved Adrian then tried talking to Eve and found out that she had discovered that he and Sir were one and the same Max convinced Celeste to marry him I had to hover over the two and three star slots for a few minutes before I could decide Ultimately I expect from a writer like Victoria Alexander I decided on twoThis book had a cute premise a former spy who is now retired and happily married is re enlisted to help find a missing file Contained in the file are the super secret names of the heads of her spy agency She must lie to her husband of two Return to Doomstar (Doomstar 2) years for whom she left the exciting life of espionage behindSir the former head and her former mentor was a shadowy figure she fell for in a distant unreuited way His letters to her painted a fantasy in her mind but upon meeting her husband all was forgotten She loves him for his staid predictable solid strengthRightou see it coming too ExactlyEVERY point of tension and conflict is forced silly and transparent The big reveal is obvious from page one It s actually a shame since the premise is cute But Alexander not only makes both her lead characters too dim witted to pull off their alleged pasts as spies She draws them with a lack of depth and shading The secondary couple is interesting I found myself far curious about their storyCould have been a wonderful change two married somewhat older people with rich backgrounds rediscovering excitement and love It wasn t Bummer DNF Unbelievable plot from beginning to middle where I decided life was too short to read the rest and infuriatingly stupid hero and heroine who are supposed to be top spies but who seem dull thick and completely pointless I honestly don t think the heroine could inveigle her way out of a paper bag I spent the whole time
