    3.5 stars I'll admit, I found this story a bit slow in the beginning, but I am glad I stuck with it. It ended up being a really fun read. Lady Travelers Guide to Larceny with a Dashing Stranger is the second book in the Lady Travelers Society series. In a way, I wish I had read the ...

    Lady Wilhelmina Bascombe lived a carefree, somewhat wild life until her husband died. Then it all came crashing down. It wasn't that she truly loved her husband but she also didn't know how truly in debt they were. The only way she can dig herself out of the hole is to retrieve a price...

    This was a good book and I really liked the premise and the first two-thirds of the book. It was fun with the group of Americans joining Willi and Dante on their trek across Europe. There was nothing really wrong with the last third except that I felt the story was just drawn out too l...

    Larceny brought up a great many themes in it that I truly enjoy, and believe that many women who are of any era sometimes struggle with during their lives. Ms. Alexander once again brought enjoyable characters, although I will admit, again, my fascination with the secondary characters,...

    Fun romp with a group of ladies, their daughters, and of course, Dante. Dante is the brother of one of the ladies. He is a bit stuffy and an art fanatic. Wilhelmina, or Willie, is in a tight spot money wise after the death of her husband. It seems they spent a rather carefree lifestyle...

    The heroine in book 1 of this series was very difficult to like, so I'm happy to find both hero and heroine in book 2 are immediately likeable and easy to root for. While the book goes on a bit long, I enjoyed the experience of traveling Europe with a group of adults and teens, much li...

    I've given this an A for narration and a B for content at AudioGals. The audio edition includes the novella, The Rise and Fall of Reginald Everhart, which was issued separately in print, but I'm reviewing the audio version as published (which includes both stories). The Lady Travele...

    The Ladies Travelers Society sets off on another grand adventure in book 2, Larceny with a Dangerous Stranger, and it is a delightful read. Victoria Alexander creates a wonderful cast of characters in which the secondary characters play a great part in the story and are just as intrigu...

    An interesting premise that ultimately felt long and a little stale after a while. I would have much preferred more banter and romance then discussions of paintings and worried inner monologues from our two main characters. ...

    I was lucky enough to be given an advanced reader copy of this book, which does not affect my review. Loved this book! It had a unique plot, another madcap Lady Traveler's adventure. This time, it involved Willie, who has weaseled her way into being a guide, so that she can get to Euro...

    I was fortunate to receive a copy of this book from Ms. Alexander and enjoyed this second story as much as the first in the series. I find it interesting how formal life was many years ago, and love to read about history. Historical romance can be quite educational and entertaining...

    Favorite Quotes: Willie and her father, the Earl of Hillborough, hadn?t spoken in nearly eleven years. On occasion, she missed the father he might have been but not once did she regret the loss of the father he was. From the look on Marian?s face one would have thought the cl...

    4.5 stars London. Paris. Monte Carlo. Verona and Venice. I applaud a story that gets out of London and England. VA does a lovely job describing the locales and adding historical tidbits. The main characters were compelling and likable. Willie is a barely-acceptable, somewhat scan...

    This has been a terrific series so far, and Larceny is also excellent. I found Dante's character fascinating. He is honest, but he can be deceptive. He is "extraordinarily nice," but his sister and niece know that he can be condescending, too. He is very intelligent, but he doesn't l...
