    One thought on “The Fortescue Diamond”

    1. I really enjoyed the intrigue in this book, but I really wish that Louisa had been more on top of things. Keeping her in the dark didn't sit right with me, and she had a lot of the clues. That being said I very much enjoyed it and would read it again.

    2. A well written regency romance with more heft than most. The romance between Louisa and Morrison was almost a secondary plot to the central mystery surrounding the beautiful Gwendolyn Fortescue (known as the Fortescue diamond) and how all her tragically young rich suitors who were lost to war.

    3. I liked the beautiful, cold, deadly Gwendolyn Fortescue. I loved the drama surrounding her secret betrothals and her family's attempts to get her suitors killed.
