The Heiress and the Spy Friendship #2

Rich widow Elizabeth Shelton secretly yearns to break free from the confinements of her placid life Her late husband died a hero in the Peninsul A lively character driven story with a plausible plot and than a few surprises along the way The writing is smooth there are a few typos or conversion errors and the transitions were nicely handled The pacing in the first 23 of the book was perfect the last 13 was rushed and suffered for this There was just enough character background as the story progressed to feel like I was genuinely getting to know them instead of having their history repetitiously rammed down my throat Secondary characters were intriguing dialog both enjoyable and propelling sense of time and place well done The romance despite an instant attraction was given time to develop from interest to friendship then moved along in a way that didn t feel rushed The intimate moments were tastefully handled and considering circumstances portrayed pretty accurately Do not expect a detailed adventure of spy vs spy or mystery to solve this is as I said all about the characters Enjoyable enough to prompt me to purchase 3 of the stories in the series The rich widow is a nice change of heroine it is what snagged my interest when a friend mentioned these books Too often we find these ladies as unsavory connections or worse the arrogant witch cutting a swath through the ball rooms leaving a distasteful trail of cutting remarks and ill mannered behavior leaving you wondering what the hero could possibly see in her I am uite sick of being fed sarcasm labeled wit and rudeness labeled a right I thoroughly enjoyed Eliza from beginning to almost the end she was a character that knew how to carry on attend to details and how to delegate No micro manager hovering over underlings she set the goals and depended on people to live up to her expectations She had no chip on her shoulder no attitude with an agenda no fears of loving and no hatred of marriage Character wise Eliza was a breath of fresh air in our same ole thaing romance land Daughter of a cotton merchant turned banker she is aware there is an entire world above her station as well as below With control of her fortune she chooses to reinvest it and to spend it on those in need even employing servants than reuired for efficiency instead of pursuing aristocratic society A mature heroine she was still vulnerable to doubts about being accepted by the ton but even in this she kept her sense of self and perspective It was a small part of the overall scheme of life for most people the ton despite their own opinion and the plethora of romance books that center on that uniue world It was nifty to see that reality demonstrated in a Regency Eliza s world isn t poor gentility though she possesses the blood of royalty it is not British and therefore has no relevance to the ton Instead Eliza lives in another world one where thoughts and accomplishments matter than blood lines and gossip She hosts assemblies where one might actually collide with an astute thought and has created her place in the world that is comfortable enough She s longing for excitement something anything to enliven the tedium of her days but she s not unhappyAsterly is eually refreshing He admires intelligence still holds ideals that might have been devastated by war and longs to be than he is Half in love with an image and the actions of Eliza even before he met her after several weeks of her company he realizes there s to his feelings and to her Caught up by the needs of war and Napoleon s escape from Elba Asterly does his best to balance practical needs with emotional I was impressed with the way he sought to ensure her safety first then presented the issues at hand He didn t keep her in the dark except where national security demanded and she responded to his trust with a few thoughts of her own that made them a good working team His proposal was an adventure to read and it made this Olde Biddy grin than once Although he was good at his work his relationship with his brother was strained his estate neglected and he was eager to begin his next life after the war Asterly by virtue of beginning life with leaking roofs balanced on the edge of mortgages before going off to war was separated from the I m a Lord I m entitled attitude Uniue and uite welcome in my reading diet He wanted a life with Eliza and wanted her to want it too The easy acceptance of her wealth and how it would make that life together not only easier but of an adventure was well done Having the example of her first husband before him for several years certainly helpedYeah it s a stretch to think Eliza could be in total control of such a vast fortune and banks on than one continent in an era where a woman could not open a bank account on her own but Hand Wave because her father was smart enough to set things up for her Mostly I was willing to hand wave because it was so wonderful to have the shoes on the other feet for a change Wealthy Woman taking care of men without damaging their pride or hers And not one scene where she s fitted for clothes and hates it thank you SO much for thatAs I said the last 13 of the book was rushed in comparison to the pacing established in the first 23 of the book I loved the plot the action and even the eventual resolution but felt they were thrown at me too fast AND Eliza behaved totally out of character both for the historical time and her previous established nature Perhaps if there had been a better transition or a slow down I might have bought it or hand waved it as the author intended but I couldn t and I confess it soured the ending for me That said I still enjoyed the book and highly recommend itRead an expanded review of this and other books at
