A Delicate Deception (2019) Cat Sebastian (Regency Imposters)

A Delicate DeceptionSet in England in 1824

Amelia Allenby fled London to escape what she felt was an impending madness. She’s now comfortable in Derbyshire, but still tries to avoid everyone.

But a hulking man interrupts her daily walk, and eventually her annoyance changes to something else.

Sydney may have inherited Pelham Hall, but he wants nothing to do with the place where his brother and sister-in-law died. But he has returned at the request of his one-time lover and his sister-in-law’s brother.

I borrowed this from the library, because I was meh about the first two books, and low and behold, I’m meh about the third.

Part of it was the casual sex (which never works for me) but another part was Amelia’s problems. I’m not suite sure what her problems were supposed to be–perhaps anxiety? But as someone who struggles with her mental health, it felt like her issues were there because they were talked about, but I never felt Amelia’s struggles.

Since her issues were one of the issues that needed to be overcome, I didn’t know how to deal with her lack of struggle with those issues. She has supposedly come to terms with her issues, but–she’s twenty-five and living in a time where these issues were not understood and very definitely not accepted.

It just felt bizarre to me that she struggled with her health, but we never really saw any sign of it.
