Whom Shall I Kiss… An Earl, A Marquess, or A Duke? (Tricking the Scoundrels Book 1) by Laura A. Barnes was an okay read that has lots of potential.
As a fan of historical fiction in all forms of media, I was excited to get my hands on what looked like a light hearted, fun, spoof type read. It started fine, and I was drawn in pretty easy, but there was inconsistencies in speech, and there were some modern slang tossed in that pulled me out and made me go, wait what.. So with that said, some detail research would have helped with that slip up. Also our MC, as much as I liked her, had moments that fell flat and to me, felt like she missed the mark. There were some other things as well that another go at editing could fix. But I’m not going to dewll on that
Overall this book has an original fresh take on the era that it’s set it. I liked the idea, and in truth the plot was good, the characters interactions were good, fun, and the setting made you feel like a step back in time. Though I had some issues with it, I can see the gem under the roughness, and I have high hopes for the series to come. Like I have said, there was so much potential that this story is worth the read.
So pease take my recommendation and my approval, that you will find yourself caught in the mess that Sidney creates.
