The Perils of Pleasure

First book in the Pennyroyal Green series

by Julie Anne Long

Avon, 2008

Adult Historical Romance

Summary: Colin Eversea is about to be hanged and Madeleine is hired to rescue him but then she gets shot at before the exchange. So the two start running for their lives while also trying to figure out what’s going on.

Likes: There were some genuinely funny moments.

Dislikes: This was overwritten. Ten words (especially adjectives) were used when one would have been fine. The plot was also convoluted.

Overall from what I understand this series does have better books coming. This one is the weak link. But I’m more inclined to read the next book in the other series I started than the next one in this one.
