THE SECRET LIFE OF LADY LUCINDA
Book three in Barnes’ A Summersby Tale series brings together characters from the previous stories and adds the daring, bold Lucinda. The story begins with a scene that grabs reader attention and then moves on to one that delights. However, as the characters move into a marriage of convenience, a likable, clever heroine becomes foolish and fragile, allowing others to complete her plans. Some readers may feel cheated by the weak climax of an otherwise pleasant, sensual read.
