For romantics who love suspense and lots of secrets in the stories they read, Mostly-Mayhem is just what you're looking for. You'll really enjoy sharing in the lives of the well-drawn characters as they try to resolve their many problems. Tessa James Hardington has several secrets, one in particular that could get her tossed into prison. But is what she's doing really a bad thing? I'm not telling. It's worth your time just to read the story to find out. But there is much more to this tale. Tessa also has an uncle who would seize control of her money and soon leave her broke. To keep him out of her life she asks an old beau, Charles Emerson, to pretend they are married until she can find a better solution. Charles soon wonders just what kind of mess he's stepped into when he discovers Tessa is harboring secrets she won't trust him with. And her servant, Fabrice, is much too forward. Charles can't understand why Tessa tolerates such behavior. There is a lot more to this multi-layered story, subplots that weave mystery into a great romance by a highly talented author, Lisa Manuel. Highly recommended. A tale guaranteed to please and satisfy even the pickiest reader.
