    1 thought on “Shady Lady”

    1. Elizabeth Thornton has been a hit-and-miss author for me, with the misses probably exceeding the hits.  But this book is definitely a hit. Mrs. Jo Chesney is a widow who has taken over her late husband's weekly newspaper and turned it into a going concern. A popular column in the weekly is "Lady Tellall's" society gossip column. When the book opens, Chloe, who is "Lady Tellall", appears to be in a very dangerous situation, apparently due to something she wrote in the column. She manages to wri [...]

    2. This actually was a good book. Revisited by secondary characters from "Almost a Princess".Jolie Chesney a publisher for a Journal and Waldo Bowman who is a special agent for the Special Branch are the main characters in this book. Jo is a widow who still adores her departed husband and carries on the Journal in his memory. Waldo's name has been mentioned in the Journal and he comes to her office angrily demanding a retraction for some unsettlingly charismatic remarks that have found their way in [...]

    3. An enjoyable read, but not one that lingers with me. I finished it three days ago and can't remember too much about it. That's sad.Oh, wait. I remember. The heroine owned a newspaper and the hero was a rake who took exception to being in the gossip pages. Now it's coming back to me. This was a good read except for a few things that bothered me.1. The hero's name was Waldo.2. The hero had to carry a cane as the result of an old war injury. Now, this is all fine and good, but what really irked me [...]

    4. This author was great!!! Love when a Historical Romance has some mystery, murders, who done it, romance, sensual, has it all!!!!!!!!! A page turner

    5. I only gave it a three star because I usually love this author and could not bring myself to only a two.

    6. AverageReasonable romance with average adventure and mystery combine in the last novel of the series. Nothing spectacular but if you have got this far you might as well finish the series. Generally enjoyable. 3 stars

    7. My overall reaction? Meh. Not one of Thornton's better stories.Jo was interesting to a degree (rebelling against the behavior modeled by her famous but neglectful parents), and realistic to a degree (initially not liking the kid who pelted her with eggs). Quite realistic in her anger at being duped by her dead husband and having no way to express that anger at him, so she projects it onto Waldo. ((Why such an awful name for our hero? Poor guy. Oh, I know; it was a typical man's name then, but st [...]

    8. I'm honestly not sure why I finished this book. Perhaps since the initial premise was so ridiculous---of course you'd send your friend something cryptic about the villain when he's coming to kill you instead of saying, plainly, "the villain did it!"---each succeeding plot twist and contortion of character seemed less absurd than it truly was.By the time I got to the part where the hero was lambasting the heroine for putting her dead husband on a pedestal---because the hero, himself, has apparent [...]

    9. Required an entire suspension of disbelief from page one, which I had difficulty sustaining. A decent book if you pretend it was written for a different time period.
