Book of the Week--The Countess


I just finished reading Lyndsay Sands historical romance The Countess. I loved it! This book combines intrigue, murder and...humor. Yes, that's right, humor. Now that takes talent.


This is the first book in the Madison sisters series. Book 2, The Heiress is already out and I can't wait to read it.


BLURB:

The fairy tale courtship did not turn into a happily ever after…

Not until her husband dropped dead, that is. He had been horrible enough to Christiana during their short marriage, and she was not going to allow the traditional period of mourning to ruin her sisters’ debuts as well. So Christiana decides to put him on ice and go on as if nothing’s happened…

Until the real earl appears. Richard Fairgrave had every intention of confronting his villainous twin who robbed him of his name and title…only to discover that he’d died. Quietly assuming his identity, Richard must now deal with a maddening desire for his ravishing inherited “wife”—certainly a gold digger and possibly a murderess. And Christiana must deal with an unwanted new “husband”…and they both must figure out what to do before the ice melts!

I really enjoyed this book, Kat.

It was wonderful, Anny. Just the kind of book I needed to read.
