B so 35 stars rounded upReaders return to Maggie Robinson s fictional Cotswold village of Puddling on the Wold for the second book in her Cotswold Confidential series Seducing Mr Sykes It s a mostly lighthearted romantic comedy in which a determinedly unconventional young woman who doesn t want to get married finds herself strongly attracted to a rather starchy young man who is intent on keeping his head down and living a uiet life It might not win any prizes for originality but it s a nicely written undemanding and fun read that kept me engaged and entertained for the time it took me to read itThe small village of Puddling on the Wold has for some decades been used as a kind of rehabilitation centre for members of the nobility who have gone off the rails With a calmly ordered programme of healthful exercise and diet and a lack of anything vaguely stimulating the village offers a simple uiet environment for those sent there to take stock and make changes to their lives All the villagers are party to the reasons their visitors are sent there and are in on the cures and the place is now so popular as to be able to provide a decent living for the people who live there Puddling s board of trustees is now run by the absentee Sir Betram Sykes whose son Tristan takes his responsibilities to the place very seriously When a fire at one of the cottages means that the inhabitant Lady Sarah Marchmain must uickly find somewhere else to stay he is not enamoured of the idea that she moves to Sykes House while the cottage is repaired and made habitable again It s not that Tristan is especially worried about the proprieties he doesn t actually live in the house preferring to reside at a small folly in the grounds which he an architect by profession has modified to suit his own taste and comfort But Lady Sarah Sadie is a handful of tall well endowed red haired impetuosity and Tristan whose scandalous divorce some years previously from a woman of similarly high spirits has left him somewhat wary of women in general wants as little to do with her as possibleSadie has been sent to Puddling by her father the Duke of Islesford whose regard for her extends only as far as she can be useful to him Being a man who keeps a lavish lifestyle and likes to gamble he s in debt and looking to sell his daughter who stands to inherit a substantial fortune on her twenty fifth birthday to the highest bidder Sadie s hoydenish behaviour has already frightened off a couple of would be suitors and the duke is getting desperate Puddling is his final attempt to get her to toe the line before he commits her to an asylum and takes control of her money Most of the village s guests stay for a month before returning home but Sadie has already been there for an extra week and continues to behave outrageously in the hope that she will be able to prolong her stay while she searches for a means to escape her father The problem however is that the all too handsome Tristan Sykes seems to have seen through her scheme to extend her stay and is completely wise to her attempts to make herself appear unstable and still in need of treatment So in a way the fire which wasn t her doing is a blessing in disguise as it will get her out of the village away from the watchful eyes and perhaps give her a chance to make her escapeThings take an unexpected turn however when Tristan comes upon Sadie in a state of undress while she is exploring the attics looking for something to wear all her clothes were lost in the fire and is shortly followed by her father who immediately accuses Tristan of compromising his daughter and insists the two of them get married Appalled the couple tries to tell the duke that nothing happened but he insists threatening to blacken Tristan s name brand him as unfit to have charge of a rehabilitation facility and ruin Puddling and its community in the processMaggie Robinson has crafted an entertaining and rather charming opposites attract story which for all its surface light heartedness has some darker undertones Sadie hasn t known any warmth or affection since the death of her mother when she was a child and her father s plan to put her in an asylum was sadly not an unheard of one at the time when locking away troublesome females was an easy solution when a woman didn t fit the accepted pattern or do as she was told Tristan s status as a divorced man had a deleterious effect on his life and career and now all he wants is to live a uiet life without the sort of tempers and tantrums his first now deceased wife was prone to He fights his attraction to Sadie at first because her behaviour leads him to believe that she is unstable which to be fair is what she wants him to think but as he comes to know her and to know her story he realises he has misjudged her and that he wants to keep her closeThe author has a deft touch with the humour and has created two likeable characters who have to leave behind their emotional baggage if they are to make a life together They have strong chemistry and the love scenes are sensual and well written but I have a couple of reservations overall that prevent me from rating the book highly One is that Tristan so easily takes comments made by Sadie s father and former fianc at face value and the other is that while Sadie s behaviour is understandable given the way she has been treated by her father her mulish immature antics continue way past the point at which my understanding gave way to irritationWith those provisos in mind if you re looking for a fairly light hearted amusing and sensual historical romance I d venture to suggest that Seducing Mr Sykes might fit the bill

Seducing Mr Sykes by Maggie RobinsonCotswold Confidential 2In Puddling on the Wold they take in people to be cured of problematic issues at least awkward to their families When a person is in need of adjusting Puddling promises to fix them and has done so for uite some time Sarah Sadie Marchmain has been sent for the cure by her father who wants her married and his debts paid off Sadie is doing everything in her power to prevent the marriage by remaining uncured When a fire occurs in the house Lady Sarah is staying in she is forced to move to Sykes House where and of her time is spent with Tristan the man in line to one day be a Baron and the owner of said house When a compromising situation leads to a forced and unwanted marriage between Sarah and Tristan the situation becomes complicated With misunderstandings due to lack of honest communication the appearance of an execrable father unwanted fianc and blackmailer things are complex indeed In the beginning the story was told than experienced I was told how the characters were feeling and about their personalities and would have perhaps liked to have experienced these things and concluded them through their behavior and interactions with others About half way through the action and interactions picked up as did my interest in the story By the end of the story I was rooting for both Sadie and Tristan and felt that perhaps they would find happiness in the future I found Tristan rather pompous and Sadie obnoxious in the beginning but at the halfway mark things came a bit into focus and as Tristan began to understand Sadie her motivation and then he met her father his understanding became crystal clear There was some muddling along but in the end I felt I had read a good story and now want to find out who will star in the next book of the series Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books Lyrical for the ARC This is my honest review 3 4 Stars

I am so deathly tired of the abuse of the English language in books If I want to hear the language butchered I can take out my earbuds at work and listen for five minutes It s not just in early reviewer copies though obviously it s common there it s not just in self published books This one is to be published by Kensington Books which is pretty legit right Yet here Our Hero reflects on being slayed by Sadie s regal presence and vocal chords and Our Heroine makes a sinuous trip up the staircase carried up in the Hero s arms Usually one can figure out through context what a word is supposed to be but this baffles me If you re not completely sure of the meaning of a word either look it up or don t use it And if you re a book editor for God s sake take a fine toothed comb and EDIT the damned things ahemThat being said this was kind of fun It was absurd taking place in a sort of Victorian Victorian rehab village where wealthy families send their troubled scions to reform via fresh air exercise routine and a lack of unseemly stimulation The place is run by the Sykeses father currently abroad and I take it that s a book unto itself and son and everyone in the little village is engaged in the task of looking after the Guests to see to it they are looked after and that they behave The latter is the problem with Sadie Sarah Marchmain who has been dumped in Puddling on the Wold by her father because she is bucking at the prospect of marrying the man he has chosen for her Someone s husband a local baronet called Sir Colin Sykes had taken her in hand as best he could once they were married Sadie was determined never to be taken in hand So naturally when she has a meet cute with Mr Sykes the Younger he is horrified at what she is wearing stolen plaid trousers and she is mulishly determined to buck any authority she comes up against So naturally I knew they would end up together Well it is of course given away in the title which doesn t kick in till almost three uarters of the way in The how and why doesn t matter much This is after all a romance novel and there isn t much new under the sun in getting a couple from point A to bed or marriage or whatever the goal is The primary thing here is characterization and enjoyable writing and Maggie Robinson does a really pretty good job with these I may not believe in Puddling on the Wold but I was adeuately convinced by Tristan and Sadie and their background cast Now as to the writing apart from what I already mentioned and uibbles like detailed descriptions of what color something was when it had already been specified that all the lights were off and it was very dark oh and yes of course I got cranky when Frankenstein was conflated with his monster I laughed when the eleventh Doctor confessed that he couldn t make a decent meringue because neither can I Whipping up egg whites into a froth is harder than it looks Similarly creating a book that is decently frothy and light and yet stands up on its own is apparently really hard because so few people manage it successfully But this comes darned close The silly plot romps along pulling in a few serious details along the way to give it a foundation but not to dampen it and by the end the main characters are surprisingly solid and rounded Some of the froth was sticky than I would prefer Sadie continues her mulish eccentricity beyond what really seems a reasonable point for example and in fact just about everyone behaves at least slightly unreasonably but on the whole it pulled it off And I did enjoy uite a few turns of phrase Sadie s old late governess is described as at this moment no doubt giving the devil a lesson on evil and grading him harshly After a shock Tristan tries to pull himself together Let s see To speak one opened one s mouth Arranged teeth and tongue in familiar combinations Pressed one s vocal chords sic into service Breathed too somehow All of that was uite beyond him at the moment My favorite line though which made this just a little than simple froth and which should in fact be everyone s motto Let s be kind to each other and see where the journey leadsThe usual disclaimer I received this book via Netgalley for review
