No Job For a Woman

Sherry Gloag
Regency Romance

"Making a cake of yourself, that's what you're doing, and riding unescorted around the countryside, is not 'doing it in style'."

Deborah Stavely has no intention of giving up her freedom to a man.  Her late husband understood her need for independence and her keen understanding of their affairs.  Now that she is a widow, she won't give that up, no matter what threats her neighbors may send her.  Lord Worth is at his wits end on how to protect his sister, sending to his best friend, Julian Fanshaw for help.  Together, perhaps they can find a way to protect Deborah from men who have a vendetta against the two old friends, though perhaps they are playing an altogether different game now.  Julian and Deborah are led to work together to protect her people and her lands...and may lead to a risky game of their own.  One of the heart.

My Opinion: This was an interesting book, though I felt like I got lost in the storyline too often.  In what seemed to be an attempt to draw out the mystery of the story, I felt confused between flashbacks and veiled conversations.  The story was a bit choppy and I felt a little tossed about with non-historical terminology that was sometimes used.  There were some good action sequences though which kept the pages turning despite the oddities in the storytelling.  It was interesting and there was some lightly fun romance involved between the characters.  Though all in all it wasn't my cup of tea.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
