    interesting series

    I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. The Making Of A Marquess, by Lynne Connolly, is available at booksellers 3-31-20. Making is book 2 in Ms Connolly's The Society Of Single Ladies series. The premise of the SSL is crime solving. Many things happen in the world of the ton and rich cits. Who better to look and listen than spinsters. They're of quality, know many people, and are invited many places. They are ignored, become background, and this is to their crime solving benefit. Ms Connolly had me looking up a lot of words, what was it, did I have it right? She kept me on my toes & I enjoyed it. Making is a romance/mystery/thriller. Sounds complicated but trust me, it worked. Our SSL member is Dorothea Rowland, spinster and resigned to being one always. The SSL has given her a purpose and makes being unmarried bearable. She's like many ladies I've known, Prince Charming forgot to stop by. She's witty and brave. I liked her from the start. The hero, Benedict Thorpe was another story. Lord Brockbank had to grow on me. He was the usual annoying fop, certain he's handsome beyond measure and charming enough to get away with anything. He was awful to Dorothea during her season, the cad. In the story he's grown and made something of himself without his title. He's worried he won't be able to prove his identity, that his tenants will suffer, worried about the estate at last. He won me over when he took such care with his mother. He had substance after all. #LynneConnolly #netgalley #TheMakingOfAMarquess #TheSocietyOfSingleLadies #KensingtonBooks #romance #Mystery #Thriller

    Intriguing Story

    Crestbrook House "No more the discarded spinster, Dorothea now had a a purpose in life. She was a member of the Society of Single Ladies, and she was here on a mission. Her first assignment for the SSL was a personal connection." Yes I was intrigued and found out she had started a courtship with Ben, Lord Brocklebank(love that name!), although her father had wanted him to let her grow up a little. She was smitten with the tall handsome elegant gentleman. Then Lady Honoria Colt had come into society and any chance at Ben had been lost to her. Then a duel with his cousin Louis over the Lady and Ben had just disappeared. Now with his cousin trying to declare Ben dead so he would inherit the title, Dorothea would work with a man of the Crown to try to prove Louis killed Ben and have him put in jail. But as Louis was making an announcement about making his bow to court soon as the Marquess and his wife Honoria Marchioness were declared, there came a voice from the doorway, "I believe the saying is over my dead body." Thus Ben reappeared! This had the feeling of a game of Clue and I loved it! The different characters, each with their own secrets and wishes and a villain in the midst beside the despicable Louis. Ben and Dorothea become reacquainted and they take a slow journey to romance and a happy ever after. Don't miss this second book in this series!

    Disappointed

    Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I had a difficult time getting through this novel. Although well written, it left a lot to be desired. Characters lacked personality and the story moved at a snail pace. Just not what I was expecting.

    Entertaining book

    This was a well-written, entertaining book. Dorothea belongs to a crime-solving club and encounters Ben in the process of an investigation. Love, intrigue, suspense and humor follow. I enjoyed this book and would read more books by this author.
