from our review:A Tryst with Trouble is a thoroughly enjoyable Regency romp in which our two leads – Lord Benborough (Ben) and Lady Barbara Jeffords, by turns bicker, sleuth, and fall in love....The story reads like a cross between a farce and a whodunit. Ben’s cousin Teddy is engaged to Barbara’s sister, Helen, but having received information to the effect that Helen is carrying on with the footman next door, Teddy has come to see Helen and her father (bringing Ben as moral support) to break off the engagement. But when that footman is later found dead and both Teddy and Helen fall under suspicion, their concerned relatives decide to prove their respective innocence. It’s not long, however, before Ben and Barbara realise that if they work together they are more likely to be able to discover the identity of the murder. And it’s not long after that before they find themselves mired in a plot involving blackmail, deceit, scandal, and attempted murder....A Tryst with Trouble is an entertaining, quick and sexy read. It’s well-written, the central couple are well-matched and engaging, and overall, I’d say it’s just the thing when you’re looking for a pick-me-up read on a grey winter afternoon.
