When a gentleman is so determined to flirt…

I received a copy of A Little Mischief from the publisher to read and review. This book is a re-release, yet one that I didn’t read the first time around. Miss Isabella Winslowe has created The Wallflower Society in order to help some of the shy women who are trying to make their way in polite society. She feels that she can help them gain much needed confidence through their weekly meetings and discussions. Lady Gretchen Colebrooke is one of the spunkier members of the group, and when she finds herself with a dead body during one of the meetings, Miss Isabella intervenes by seeking Gretchen’s brother’s help. Daniel Colebrooke knows trouble when he see it! The fact that his sister appears distraught after supposedly seeing dead body at Miss Isabella’s house certainly classifies as trouble. The trouble continues when he returns with Miss Isabella to deal with the dead body, only to find the body gone. This is the start of a rocky relationship between Daniel and Isabella. In this part mystery, part romance, part comedy, the characters keep the reader guessing as the clues are presented and laughing at the action.
Pick up a copy of this book and enjoy this cute little read! I found it to be delightful!
