The Daring Exploits of a Runaway Heiress (Millworth Manor, #5)

★★

22715903[1]By Victoria Alexander

To Do:
Swim naked in the moonlight
Play in a high stakes card game
Ride an elephant
Be painted sans clothing.
Take a lover…

Lucy Merryweather has inherited a fortune—and her great-aunt’s list of unfulfilled wishes. What better way to honor her memory than by accomplishing as many of them as possible? And with Lucy’s family an ocean away in New York, nothing stands in her way—if one ignores the private investigator hired to spy on her.

Yet Cameron Effington is infuriatingly difficult to ignore…

As a reporter, Cameron is always looking for a good story. An American heiress running rampant between Millworth Manor and Mayfair is the perfect subject. Not to mention captivating. And extremely kissable. And if Lucy believes he’s a detective? Well, the truth should never get in the way of a good story—or hinder delicious, impetuous passion…

My review

The writing is very comparable to the previous book in the series “The Shocking Secret of a Guest at the Wedding”. I enjoyed the Shocking Secret but this one just moved too slowly. I lost any interest in the book about half way though and DNF.
