    Accidentally gave myself two stars. Couldn't undo and go back to no rating so gave up and gave myself five stars because to quote RuPaul "if you can't love your self how the hell are you gonna love somebody else?" Or something... Accidentally gave myself two star...

    3.5 A Lady's Guide to Mischief and Mayhem is the new book from Manda Collins. I loved the title and happily turned to the first page... 1865. Lady Katherine Bascomb is the widowed owner of a London newspaper. She also (against the opinions of the male members of the paper) wri...

    DNF When I stumbled into A lady's Guide to Mischief and Mayhem, I though this book maybe what I need to read since I was broading my romance genre into historical romance. I had so much fun r listening to Bringing Down the Duke. Sadly instead of liking this book, I have to s...

    INTO IT! The mystery and the romance were realllly well balanced, which I think I usually don't find it to be the case? Also all of the female characters were SO GREAT and I basically want to stories for everyone . . . starting of course with Caro. WHAT A SEQUEL BAIT. INTO IT! ...

    I almost wonder if I read the wrong book. I can't remember where I heard about this book or how it got on my to-read list and since there are SO MANY books with titles like this these days, it's very possible that the book I meant to read was not this one. Which makes me f...

    A Lady's Guide to Mischief and Mayhem gave me Lady Sherlock vibes and I loved it! Lady Katherine, after the death of her husband, takes over a newspaper and decides that women need to be better informed. She and her new friend Caro decide to write a column just for women. ...

    This was an interesting book. First thing of note, I found the cover and blurb to be slightly misleading. Nothing about the cover would make me think this book relies heavily on solving a murder. Shame on me for not better reading the blurb, so I will take the loss on that. The sto...

    This was a fun first read to start off the year! I do wish that it had been a little bit longer so that the romance could have had some more page time, but I liked the characters and the story and I'm looking forward to Val and Caro's book. This was a fun first read to sta...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. In a nutshell: I yawned my way through this book ? A Lady's Guide to Mischief and Mayhem is not the worst book I've ever read, but it's also not a very engaging or exciting book. Lady Katherine B...

    This suffered from being a book I read in November 2020 when my brain is mush and I have no attention span, but the writing really worked for me and I liked the characters. I could have done with a scooch more romance on the page? I wanted a bit more before declarations of love and pro...

    2.5 stars I love that cover and the synopsis sounds like everything I could have ever wanted...sadly, I was disappointed. I liked Katherine and Andrew. They?re both smart and maybe a bit sassy. I enjoyed their open communication and honesty. Caro was hands down the best part ...

    This was a fun read and a nice change of pace after some of the darker reads I've finished lately. Normally the level of romance isn't my thing but it worked here. The only problem I had with this book was the character development. Everyone goes from just meeting to sudde...

    Collins has written competence porn at its finest. Kate and Andrew work together, sometimes begrudgingly, to solve a murder. Both respect the other and value the others input. It is all sorts of fun to read. If you are looking for a great mystery with not a lot of conflict, this book i...

    What a fun read! I love that this was more than a historical fiction romance. It has a great mystery aspect told in dual POV. At times the narrative was predictable but still quite enjoyable. I appreciated the feminism aspects to this novel. Thank you Forever Pub and Netgalley f...

    ooooo this was so good! I think I was verging on a book/reading slump as I DNF'd a book, and I didn't really want to delve into a complex fantasy or a bulky book, and so I picked this one up. And I'm really glad I did tbh. It was so entertaining and so fun! The cover...

    *ARC sent by publisher, Forever. All thoughts and opinions are my own* REVIEW This was so much fun! I will admit that the ending felt a little rushed, but I overall found it to be a pleasure. I would say this book is 60% mystery and 40% romance. Honestly, I wasn't sure ...

    Series: A Lady?s Guide #1 Publication Date: 11/10/20 Number of Pages: 368 I thoroughly enjoyed this read, but I think I need to tell you that the focus of the book is the mystery rather than the romance. Yes, there is a romance and a bit of a HEA, but the mystery is the central ...

    3.5 stars A Lady's Guide to Mischief and Mayhem was an enjoyable historical romance. The added murder plot kept things moving, but I did find that the pacing overall was a little too slow and it made the book feel overly long. I'm not sure if it was the anxiety of current ...

    DNF @ 40%. This seemed like it could have been very charming, but there was so much telling instead of showing and so many events were just summed up in a sentence. Thus, the pacing felt very off: important events were just glossed over and the plot went bouncing along a bit haphazardl...

    Overall, this was an ok read for me. I have never read any other works by this author so perhaps I just don't click with her writing style. This is definitely a mystery-driven story where the hero and heroine meet through investigating a string of murders. The mystery itself seeme...
