Very amateur and weak plot The author created a super sloppy mystery as the basis for this romance Laura is the epitome of a TSTL heroine More often than not she comes off as a total ninny who will do as she wants without thinking logically One track mindTo uncover the circumstances of a jewelry theft that occured TEN years ago Laura conceives the best plan is to prowl around high society sniffing out clues from who she feels are the actual guilty parties Because you know people will always be talking about that one singular event from a decade agoWhich also begs the uestion why did Laura and her father uickly run off ten years ago instead of defend their innocence Nothing says GUILTY than running away As members of the peer and as stated her father had many friends they should've had some opportunity at justice as opposed to any random commoner Also what made absolutely no sense is the link that dawns upon Laura upon discovery that her father once had an affair with the Duchess whose jewels were stolen By jove since her father had an affair with the Duchess and she is Alex's godmother therefore Alex MUST'VE only courted Laura for nefarious reasons Major eye rolling occurred here It felt like such a lazy method of inserting plot It only got worse when Laura goes batshit crazy when confronting Alex with her super sleuthing discoveries Very subpar book from this author As a side note this is the 2nd book from this author that I've given 1 too
