A Duke, the Spy, an Artist, and a Lie

The final instalment of Vanessa Riley’s Rogues and Remarkable Women series, A Duke, the Spy, an Artist and a Lie suffers from and yet thrives upon the one thing that pushes the story forward: the utter inability of the hero and heroine to sit down and tell each other the truth. It’s the weakest ...

The Charm Offensive

I was generally charmed by The Charm Offensive, which is funny, romantic, a little ridiculous and a lot of fun. But the book fails to set up any proper representation for its Indian protagonist, which caused me to dip the grade a little bit. Dev Deshpande is a total romantic, a fact that leaks in ...
