  • Sloppy

    If you get annoyed when authors and their editors can't keep track of the details of the story, then run far away from this book. There were too many instances of details not lining up to keep track of them all. While it's bad enough when that happens in romances, when it happens in a mystery where details are key, it's shameful. If those problems had been corrected before it went to print, it would have been an okay book, though I found that Kate's relationships with both Caro and Andrew went from zero to intense too quickly for my taste. This was my first time reading this author. I don't think I'll try her again unless I get the urge to be annoyed.

  • This book was so much fun!

    Part romcom, part murder mystery, all sparks and suspense and action! I loved this adventurous story from start to finish. The characters are lively, entertaining, and so relatable. Lady Katherine is fun to watch, and Eversham is her perfect match. These two together were sizzling on every level and I loved watching them go head-to-head and toe-to-toe. The mystery is solidly paced and makes a wonderful backdrop to the romance. The suspense is balanced with wit and humor and the heartwarming emotional connections just made the whole experience absolutely unforgettable. I highly recommend this delightful story. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

  • Exciting New Series

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. A Lady’s Guide to Mischief and Mayhem is the first book in Manda Collins’s exciting new series A Lady’s Guide. After a miserable marriage, Lady Katherine Bascomb is happily widowed and running her own newspaper. She and her friend Caroline Hardcastle come up with the idea of writing a column called A Lady’s Guide to Mischief and Mayhem as a way of informing women about the things that men say they are protecting them from when really keeping women ignorant is more likely to harm them. In the first column, they write about interviewing a witness involved in the Commandments Killer case, one that the police didn’t interview, and that article gets Inspector Andrew Eversham removed from the case. He’s quite unhappy about it, especially when his replacement and supervisor arrest and charge someone he’s sure is innocent of the murders. When the murderer seems to have followed Kate to a house party in the Lake District, Andrew is put back on the case, and sparks fly between them. I enjoyed this story with its intriguing mystery and look forward to reading future books in this series. Medium Steam.

  • Mysterious, atmospheric, and delightfully entertai

    A Lady’s Guide to Mischief and Mayhem is a clue-like murder mystery set in England during 1865 that features Lady Katherine Bascomb, a widowed newspaper owner who after stumbling upon what appears to be another victim of the elusive Commandments Killer on the country estate of her friend Lord Valentine Thorn, joins together with the disgruntled, enigmatic, handsome, Inspector Andrew Eversham of Scotland Yard to try and solve the case. The writing style is light and witty. The characters, including the intelligent, independent heroine, are well-developed, multi-layered, and intriguing. And the plot is a well-paced whodunit full of amateur sleuthing, red herrings, suspects, deduction, attraction, and of course a touch of romance. A Lady’s Guide to Mischief and Mayhem is the first book in the Lady’s Guide series, and if you love historical mysteries/romance this novel won’t disappoint. It is a passionate, enjoyable, refreshing read that is the first novel I’ve read by Collins but undoubtedly won’t be my last.

  • Fun!

    historical-novel, historical-research, serial-murder, investigation, friendship, romance, England**** It's a pretty good mystery within a romance from a delightful writer of romances. There's the widow who's running her deceased husband's newspaper, the spritely older lady who is a complete feminist, the charming police detective, and serial murders. What could go wrong? It's a really cute story but I wasn't in the right frame of mind to enjoy it the way I have her other books. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via NetGalley.
