TLC Book Tour: And Then She Fell by Stephanie Laurens

Title: And Then She Fell
Author: Stephanie Laurens
Publisher: Avon March 1, 2013
Pages: 448
Rating: 2 stars

Henrietta Cynster is known as the matchbreaker. She is the woman that all of the ladies of the ton go to when they want to make sure their suitor is marrying them for honorable reasons. She gets the dirt on the groom-to-be and prevents young brides from entering into ill-fated matches.

James Glossup’s grandmother has given him one year to marry and that year is coming to a close. When Henrietta ruins his chances with one lady of the ton, he is furious. Henrietta agrees to help him find a match, going from matchbreaker to matchmaker. But what happens when James begins to think that Henrietta is the one for him? And what happens when her life is threatened by a sinister mystery man, who has murder on the brain?

I loved the premise of this book! Having the heroine be a matchbreaker is a novel (wink) idea! However, the romance part is essentially over half way through. The couple falls in love very quickly without any real problems,and then there is a super long part about getting ready for the wedding….

Maybe I’m alone in this, but I don’t like reading about the point leading up to the wedding. What kind of flowers will there be? Who will be invited? What dress? etc. I hear about that in real life and I don’t care. So that’s where the book lost me.

I wanted the romance and the mystery to be more integrated. As it is, they are two separate stories thrown together, like part one: romance and part two: mystery. So, basically if the romance and mystery had been one story, and we deleted the pages about the wedding, I would have been pleased.
