An Heiress' Guide to Deception and Desire by Manda Collins


This is the sequel to The Lady’s Guide to Mystery and Mayhem, which I really enjoyed. I happen to love mystery novels where there is a strong romantic story line, and this fits directly into this subgenre. I was nervous about this one because it’s a second-chance-at-love trope, which is not my favorite. To my relief, it was handled well in this book, mostly because there is the mystery to contend with at the same time. It’s not a complex and deep read, but it’s entertaining and solidly written. I’ve read other books by this author that are more specifically romance, and she typically writes strong female MCs (usually bluestockings), which I really like, so I’m hoping that she will write more in this series.
