A Viscount’s Proposal by Melanie Dickerson
Age Range: 13+
Favorite Quote: “The chief object of the Gospel is not to furnish rules for the preservation of innocence, but to hold out the means of salvation to the guilty.”
Series: Second book in the Regency Spies of London, (Can be read out of order, but you get more out of the characters if you read them in order.)
Melanie Dickerson’s books always make me happy! I enjoy the simple innocent romance in all of them!
The banter between Nicholas and Leorah made me laugh! It definitely reminded me of the conversations between my siblings and I. I really loved Nicholas in A Spy’s Devotion and was happy he was so prevalent in this book.
I do have to say the romance in this book wasn’t a favorite… I LOVED them by the end but the beginning of their friendship was meh. I normally like the hate to love relationships, but this one wasn’t a favorite. The ending of this book was perfect and swoon worthy! Leorah and Edward’s letters to each other made me smile like crazy. I am excited to read the next book in the series and see how their life has progressed!
All the relationships were done well! The friendships and the romances.
In the beginning of the book I felt like there was a lot of telling instead of showing. Especially when it came to a suspenseful or action packed scene SPOILER (Highlight to see) like when she fell off her horse, we were told that instead of shown.END SPOILER
Overall, I liked this book. It was a quick and cute read. I will be continuing on with the series as I will every Melanie Dickerson series :)
Thanks to the author for the review copy received. The thoughts and commentary are my own.
