A Noble Scheme: (An English Historical Romance with Mystery and Glamor) (The Imposters)

We rated this book:


Gemma Parker and Graham Wharton are members of the Imposters, a group of high society investigators who delve into the crimes of the rich and powerful. They are also recovering from a painful separation from each other, doing their best to guard their hearts and be professionals as they delve into the mystery of a kidnapped child just before Christmas. They will not be able to keep their hearts safe forever, though, and perhaps what they think is safety is nothing of the sort.

A Noble Scheme is the second in this series, but it can be read as a standalone novel for those who haven’t stumbled across these books before. It definitely made me want to pick up more of these books. The characters were delightful, and I couldn’t decide which I loved more: the depth given to Gemma and Graham or the depth given to the more villainous characters. The mystery had intriguing twists and turns, and the religious aspects were worked in with sophistication and nuance that will appeal even to readers not usually drawn to Christian romance.

This book is by turns amusing and touching, and it is an excellent read for a cold winter’s night.
