Book Review: A Duke Like No Other by Valerie Bowman
I've found historical books where there are a separation and reconciliation between the hero and heroine to be a mixed bag. Ms. Bowman does a good job in coming up with plausible reasons for the reconciliation though I thought the reason for the separation was a bit weak. The murder investigation worked as a subplot as well as the flashbacks to how Mark and Nicole met and married. There were some holes in the plot: how did Nicole work as a spy in Paris under Napoleon when she is so thoroughly English? How did she work as a Runner as a lady; didn't her mother and grandmother notice? But if you ignore these questions, it's a pleasant read. Nicole and Mark are fine as a couple as they have more in common than just the sex.
I was given this book from Netgalley, and I volunteered to review it.
