Book Review - A Lady's Guide to Mischief and Mayhem by Manda Collin


In 1865, Lady Katherine Bascomb finds herself in the middle of controversy when her latest article leads to an arrest for the murders plaguing London. The English people believe that women should not be involved in vulgar matters such as crime. Detective Inspector Andrew Eversham is annoyed and furious that Katherine had interfered with his investigation. Katherine decides she needs to escape the unwanted attention and heads to the country only to find a dead body on her trip.

Andrew is annoyed that Katherine keeps showing up in his crime scene. Katherine almost got him fired because of her article. Andrew tries to keep her from getting involved in his investigation again but, he feels attracted to her wit and beauty. As the pair follows the clues, they realize the killer might be closer than they realize.

I thought the book started off interesting but, then got boring. I felt like the main focus of the book was the romance between the main characters. I am actually surprised that they fell for each other because they went from "you are so annoying" to passionately kissing. The killer was expected but, the book did have a few twists. Overall, it was an okay read and I would be opened to reading more books by the author.
