Short and Sweet Book Reviews #30 - The Summer Bride by Anne Gracie, Once Upon a Moonlit Night by Elizabeth Hoyt, An Untimely Frost by Penny Richards

The Summer Bride (Chance Sisters, #4)The Summer Bride by Anne Gracie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have followed the Chance Sisters since their first book and have wondered how Gracie was going to give Daisy an HEA like her sisters. Unlike the other three sisters Daisy is not a lady and never will be. What she has always been is a wonderful fashion designer and in The Summer Bride she finally get her dream, her own store. What else she gets is a very handsome man who wants her for his bride. It is great fun to see what happens after that. A really great ending to the Chance Sisters series. It can be read as a stand alone but for maximum enjoy start with book one, The Autumn Bride.

Once Upon a Moonlit Night (Maiden Lane, #10.5)Once Upon a Moonlit Night by Elizabeth Hoyt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hippolyta Royle has a problem. She has been kidnapped and will be forced into marriage if she does not get away. Enter Matthew Mortimer. When Hippolyta does escape Matthew gives her a ride in his coach helping her get away. From there on it is a fun story full of mixups and finally romance. Hippolyta is very rich and Matthew just became the owner of an estate full of debt. A match made in heaven if only they two can get on the same page. This is a novella with very well developed characters and great action. A must read of Maiden Lane fans and a good place to start if you are new to the series.

An Untimely FrostAn Untimely Frost by Penny Richards
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Set in 1818 An Untimely Frost is the first book in a new series. Richards did a great job of integrating the history of the time with the back story of the main character while keeping the mystery at the heart of the story front and center. I loved the fact that the main character was a very strong woman who could fake it until she make it using her skills as a actress in her new career as a Pinkerton Operative. Look for a character who is mostly in the background and whose backstory is mostly a mystery. That is a set up for the two to work together in future stories. A very good start to a new mystery series set in a interesting and dangerous time.
