A woman on the run from her family disguises herself as a man and ends up sharing a room with an Earl at a snowed in lodge. A murder occurs, and both of them decide to try to find the killer for different reasons. A cute mystery with lots of suspects and romance.
Good Read....Mystery and romance. Light not deep with enjoyable characters.
good light reading. Can't get too attached to the characters, and there were some corny elements that keep it from being a 'great' book, but overall a good read.
From Back Cover: They could hide their painful pasts and true identities...Facing the choice of flight or a wedding she cannot abide, Kate Simon has chosen to flee. Disguised as a boy, she takes refuge in a roadside inn, and finds herself rooming with intensely secretive Christian Black. Kate is breathless in the presence of this handsome, mysterious rogue whose piercing gaze seems to strip her naked. But neither suspects that a savage storm and a murder will draw them closer together still. But not the passion in their hearts...Christian dares not let anyone learn of his haunted past-or that he is, in truth, the Earl of Canley-especially not a slip of a girl whose masculilne attire cannot disguise the exquisite female form beneath. But now that destiny and a dastardly crime have united them, Christian can no longer contain his desire to taste the nectar of Kate's sweet kiss. Danger certainly abounds, but the gravest peril might be resisting a once-in-a-lifetime passion that can heal all wounds.
It was not my favorite Mallory book. It did not keep me interested in the characters. I felt like they were half drawn. and the resolution was rushed. I felt like there should be more to the story. I was left wanting
a delightful book though I knew how it would end I enjoyed getting there a bit tiny that is slow but very enjoyable a good read suggest it highly
