    Story
    If you could sum up The Untamed Mackenzie in three words, what would they be?

    Those fascinating MacKenzies!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed learning about Lloyd's life. Though he did not have the privileges of the other MacKenzies, he learned how to make his own way in life. What I did not like, the story was a novella. I felt, Lloyd deserved a full length novel. Just my humble opinion, hopefully, we will see more of Lloyd in the future as a spin-off, solving mystery cases. Maybe he and his wife solving mysteries, living between two different societies, a team with the MacKenzie clan constantly interfering. Would like to see the modest lifestyle of Lloyd and Louisa.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Don't have a favorite seen, but I did like when Lloyd met his father and he realized that moment would forever change his view of his father and I liked the scene where Lloyd had to meet with his supervisor in order to remain on the case. It showed a different side of life for Lloyd instead of balls and musicales. I liked seeing him as a working man, his power in a different arena unlike his brothers. I liked how he fit in around his fellow officers and co-workers. Wish there was a Newgate prison scene, so I could get a better understanding of prison life. Another scene I wish Ms. Ashley would have added was more backstory about Lloyd's mother. She is the only female living that knows about the father at a young age.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No. I just enjoy Jennifer's historical books mainly because her Heroes are flawed as well as the women. I enjoy the Victorian era (more political and industrial reform occurring) which is different from the Regency era (party people). I like that she writes her stories during the Victorian era because it provides more opportunities for romantic mysteries and romantic suspense, where those villianous masterminds lurk in the background. I would be moved if more readers would email the author expressing more stories, suggest an idea or a place of travel for the Mackenzies. Just my humble opinion.

    Story

    Lady Barbara Jeffords is certain her little sister didn't murder the footman, no matter how it looks...and no matter what the Marquess of Beningbrough - Ben - might say. Sparks fly as Ben and Barbara compete to defend their loved ones. But as strange new clues emerge that neither can decipher alone, they have no choice but to compare notes and sleuth in tandem. A tenuous bond develops that soon faces its toughest challenge when Ben himself becomes a suspect.

    Lady Wesley says: "Excellent combination of mystery and romance"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Tryst with Trouble to be better than the print version?

    Equal. This story is written in first person POV. Therefore, the POV switches between the hero and the heroine, which requires some patience with listening or reading. I say endure because it's a good rainy day type of novel.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator was very good. Although, I wish the narrator's male voice was a little deeper. There are times when it's difficult to distinguish when the hero is speaking.


    Which character – as performed by Lizzie Owensby – was your favorite?

    No personal favorite.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I read for entertainment and I felt this story held my attention. I felt the author did try to put somes twist in the story but it is easy to pen point the villian.
