Review: A Study in Scoundrels

A Study in Scoundrels A Study in Scoundrels by Christy Carlyle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'A Study in Scoundrels' by Christy Carlyle is book Two in the "Romancing the Rules" series. This is the story of Sophia Ruthven and Jasper Grey. I have read the previous book but fell this can easily be a standalone book.
Sophia writes detective stories so she is always looking around for information or help with her stories. But she comes off very prim and proper but Sophia isn't really that way. She was a strong character that knew she wanted to be married and not just a writer. Sophia had been writing to a man she 'met' via the newspaper.
Jasper is the really bad rake who after the lost of his brother seem to step away from his family. Jasper has taken up the acting and parting life style. But when he hears his sister has gone missing he comes forward to try to discretely find her before the town and his father finds out. When confronting a man he thinks his sister might have been duped by he meets up with Sophia who was hiding out in the man's library. Sophia overhears that his sister is missing. Sophia starts to try and help Jasper find his sister. Jasper finds Sophia breathtaking and knows that she is to prime and proper for him but that doesn't stop him from wanting her.
I am such a big fan of Ms. Carlyle that I was over the moon in getting a chance to read this book. I can't wait for more in this series and by Ms. Carlyle!
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
