Blog Tour / Review: Once Upon a Scandal by Julie LeMense

Image
Today I'm excited to be part of the blog tour for Once Upon a Scandal, the new novel by Julie LeMense. I loved the first book in this series, so I jumped at the chance to review this one!

Synopsis
Caught up in a scandal of her father’s making, Lady Jane Fitzsimmons is now an outcast in the society that once prized her. So when Lord Benjamin Marworth offers to help redeem her good name, she leaps at the chance. Too bad his plan requires her very public demise.


Marworth, society’s darling, is actually a spy for crown, and important war communiques have been stolen. If Jane can carry off her disguise as the mysterious Madame Lillianne Fauchon, with close ties to Napoleon, she just might tempt the thief out of hiding. And tempt Marworth into something he has always studiously avoided … at chance at love.

(You can find my reviews for most of these books over in the review archive!)


The Rosie Project, Graeme Simsion - I read this for the first time only last month, and I absolutely loved it! This has quirky indie film written all over it. 
The Versions of Us, Laura Barnett - Think Sliding Doors with a difference. This has only recently been published and the response has been amazing, so much so that there is already talk of film rights!


The Illusionists, Rosie Thomas - My favourite book of last year. So atmospheric and enchanting…
