    Nice beginning to a new series...3.5 Stars

    India Prendergast is a very staid, straight-laced, no nonsense, "the world is black and white", firmly on the shelf spinster who's beloved elderly cousin seems to have gone missing. She is a heroine I don't think I've ever read about. Her cousin raised her after her parents died and when she was able, took a job as a secretary so as not to put further strain her cousin's "limited finances". She's never had the desire to "experience" life. She just lives as she thinks an upstanding and proper young woman should. India has never desired to live like other young women are expected to do (marriage and children), never wondered what it would be like to be kissed or in love. But as the quest to find her cousin continues, she begins to question her long held beliefs on society, about love and of life in general. Derek Saunders has been put on notice, straighten up and fly right or be disinherited. He's not exactly a ne'er-do-well but he's not taken his life very seriously to this point and isn't ready to settle down and become like his uncle but as his uncle's heir determines to do his late father proud. Reluctantly with his uncle's aid, they devise a plan that will hopefully contain Miss Prendergast's ire long enough to find her cousin, prevent a scandal and possibly. Along the way, Derek makes it his personal mission to see if he can loosen up Miss Prendergast's stuffiness. Though she's not his usual type, he's attracted to her and the longer it takes to find her cousin, the better because he's not ready to let her go. Victoria Alexander is one of my automatic go-to authors. I love her writing style and her strong character development. She always has the right amount of humor blended in with the emotional moments. I can't wait for the next installment and hope to see an update of these characters in future books.

    A fantastic book from Victoria Alexander!!!

    I just finished The Lady Traveler's Guide and I'm eternally grateful that Victoria Alexander is back to writing full length novels! The book was well paced and I loved India and Derek's banter. Plus, the twist with Heloise was well done and while it was hinted at, it wasn't blatantly obvious. I was lucky enough to be reading a digital ARC, so there were some funny format issues, but they were fixed in the copy I bought from Amazon. All and all, I think this is a great start to a series and I hope that next is Val's book!!

    Fantastic love story

    The Lady Travelers Guide to Scoundrels and Other G

    *sigh* I truly loved this book. Victoria Alexander's novel, THE LADY TRAVELERS GUIDE TO SCOUNDRELS AND OTHER GENTLEMAN, has reminded me why I dearly love historical romance. She has magically taken me away to another time, another place, another way of doing things and saying things, and while doing so made me smile and yes, sigh. At many places in the story, specifically in the dialogue and witty banter, I thought to myself how Ms. Alexander's prose and characterization were very much like my beloved Jane Austen's. I have read many books, including others by Ms. Alexander and have never thought this before. TLTGTSAOG was simply charming. The writing nearly flawless, the characters and plot well developed, the situations and scenery artfully detailed so as to seem I was visualizing scenes played out before me. Miss Prendergast and Mr. Saunder's journey to find her cousin, Lady Helouise, turns into a grand adventure indeed. I'm so glad I went along. I strongly recommend you do too. 5 stars ~Complimentary copy downloaded from NetGalley. All opinions expressed are mine alone.

    Ladies Traveler Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gent

    I have most of Victoria's books. This is a good read with some reread spots. She did a good job putting her characters and story lines together. It bounced around a lot but those people just wanted their own way! India came to a meeting of Ladies who started to learn about traveling. They learn how to travel. India has lost her cousin Heloise. Eloise packed her trunks and has disappeared after she got to Paris. Derek is at this meeting trying to clean up this mess. It was anger, sadness and happy times. India made Derek look for Heloise and she was coming too! There were all kinds of issues from here on. They had to take chaperones because of India. Her boss, Sir Martin, lets her go. Then he worries about her and messes everything up except for the Ball she never had. I would recommend this book for everyone. I liked this book. It pulls hi in. Check this one out and don't let it get away! You won't regret it! I volunteered to read and review this book.
