    Fun book. It opens with India, spinster and assistant to Sir Martin, on a mission to discover what has happened to her cousin Heloise. Said cousin departed on a Continental tour supposedly planned and facilitated by the Lady Travelers Society. But when India stops receiving letters fro...

    I gave this a shot, but in the end, the writing style just wore me down. And it wasn't really anything terrible. It's just that Victoria Alexander takes her own sweet time with things. You can kind of tell that's the case when you first pick up the book, just from the heft. That many c...

    This book will delight fans who enjoy reading romances set in rather different locations. The Lady Travelers Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gentlemen (Whoo! What a mouthful!) is set mostly in Paris which was one of the reasons I was so excited to read this. India's aunt Heloise has join...

    As a lover of witty Regency Romances, it's no surprise that I enjoyed this late-Victorian historical romance too. India Prendergast is concerned about her cousin, supposedly on a trip to the Continent, but she hasn't heard from her in weeks. The trip was arranged by the Lady Travelers ...

    Finally a historical romance that isn't totally an adventure romance. I've read a lot of Stephanie Laurens recently and though she is a wonderful writer, traveling the high seas in every book can get tiresome. I was quite happy that the traveling in this book was on "the continent"....

    Extremely slow-moving, and frankly, boring. A quarter of the way through and nothing has happened. Disappointing considering the title and blurb made it sound so delicious. I just don't have patience these days for books that don't grab me right off the bat. Moving on to the next. ...

    I love romance novels for the fluff escapism: tame drama, happy-ever-after, armchair time travel, appealing sexytimes. This first book in a new series did that for me, and if you like tame, slow-burn romances, this one is for you. Our heroine, spinster India Prendergast, is convince...

    This one, provided by the publisher in return for a review, really crept up on me. The story started at a steady pace, which was continued evenly throughout, but the character development really accelerated, making it a wonderfully entertaining read. Really enjoyable. ...

    Unfortunately, this story just didn't work for me. The romance part of the story went VERY slowly. In fact, it really didn't even start to pick up until Derek's mother arrives on the scene about two-thirds through. And, I really didn't like the heroine, India. Not at all. She is a snoo...

    Victoria Alexander?s new story, The Lady Travelers Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gentleman, is a pleasant romance adventure. India Prendergast is on a mission to find her missing cousin. She wants the Travel Society to help find her relative considering this group sent her out on...

    Slow to start but pretty par for the course once it got going. Maybe slightly floofier than the standard historical romance fare -- at least what I've read of it -- but also less sexy-times. It was cute, though, and an enjoyable way to pass this dreary Monday. ...

    3.5 stars This was a cute book. It's a cheesy premise - heroine's elderly cousin has gone missing on trip to Europe. Heroine blames hero because his great aunt runs the travel company that booked her now lost cousin so hero and heroine travel to Paris to find cousin and of course, r...

    I generally love Victoria Alexander's stories so when I was offered a chance to read an ARC for review I jumped on it. Now I feel like I have been given an unpleasant assignment. There is no chemistry between the main characters, the story is stiff, the characters are unpleasant. Ind...

    Originally published at Reading Reality This is my second book in a row where one of the main characters begins the story desperately requiring the surgical removal of a seemingly permanent stick shoved up their fundament. As in today?s story that?s the heroine rather than the h...

    3.5* Review in Portuguese:http://pepitamagica.blogspot.co.uk/20... First time I ever read anything by Victoria Alexander. It may be a bit too big ? if had 50-100 pages less, it might have been better. It was a bit slow to start, but when the plot starts to develop, it gains...

    The beginning was so very frustrating. I liked the storyline, but until like 60% I hated every single character in the book! It took awhile to read this book for many reasons. I wanted to give up, but I saw the potential in it. This book turned out ok not a highly recommend must re...

    *I am voluntarily leaving a review for an eARC that was provided to me by the author and NetGalley* I love Ms. Alexander's writing style - it is light without being fluffy, funny, emotional and poignant. This book had all those elements plus a bit of steam, a missing cousin, a road ...

    I really enjoyed the short story that started this series so I was greatly disappointed when I realize this book had jumped 30 years into the future and most of the characters we enjoyed, were either dead, or didn't show for more than a few scenes at the beginning. I could've dealt wit...

    I am wavering between 3 and 4 stars here. I enjoyed it, but there were a few plot points that I felt, as the listener, that I was expected to suspend judgement and trust it would all come right in the end. It did, but just. It was superbly narrated, though. India is a very prickly h...

    When I saw the covers for Ms. Alexander?s new series I was instantly curious, even more so when I read the stories are set at the end of the 19th century when rules of conduct for women were not as strict as during the regency. I love most of Ms. Alexander?s previous books, so I re...

    I enjoyed this book. I love Aunt Gwen and her friends from the novella, "How to Stop a Wedding in 7 Days or Less". I like Derek Saunders and his stepbrother Percival very much. Derek is a good man and trying to help his aunt with her somewhat fraudulent Lady Travelers Society and Assis...

    This may be the first audio book I have given 5 stars. I read one other book by this author. I enjoyed it but not enough to seek out an entire series by her. I loved this one! The story is funny, and the narrator is great. Unlike others, I did not dislike India. It was Lady Heloise ...

    It took awhile for the plot to get there, but when it finally did, it was worth the wait! More than the first half of the book drags, presumably because the main character, India Prendergast, is extremely unlikable. However, when the story began to (finally!) unfold, there were seve...
