Review: The Countess
Christianna got a bum-deal when she married Dicky. He made promises of love and devotion, but on the day they got married, he dropped his facade of a white knight. And in the year since, he has been unloving and cruel. He insults her at every turn; has cut her off from society and those she loves. And there is nothing she can do about it. Until fortune smiles on Chrissy and Dickie drops dead.
The first half of this book had me laughing out loud in parts. I kept telling myself that it was Historical Romance meets Weekend at Bernie’s. There were some very funny moments dealing with the handling of George’s dead body. There were also some really steamy parts, which were pretty hot. The romance was sweet and the groundwork was laid well for the sequel featuring Suzette. It’s not deep or historically accurate, but it clearly isn’t meant to be. It’s simply a fun and easy read… good for a little escapism and a surprising number of laughs. 4 stars.
