My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The plot has hints of the Scarlet Pimpernel, but set against the backdrop of Jacobite England. I’ve no problems seeing through the disguise the hero Alex wears as the foppish Sir Anthony, but was slightly disappointed that the heroine Elizabeth,who prides herself as an intelligent, independent woman, did not take the time to discover the hidden layers of his character, choosing only to believe the superficial.
The writing style was a little garrulous but I plodded on to find out what happens to the two protagonists. I hope the next installment of the series proves to be more scintillating a read than this debut
