And Only to Deceive (2005) Tasha Alexander

I read And Only to Deceive back in 2007 and found it a disappointment–I wanted a straight up mystery, but instead god a romance with elements of mystery.

So how did I feel upon a re-read? I still very much liked the arc of Lady Emily discovering who her husband was, after his death. I thought those parts were very well done, and touching.

I also enjoyed the historical elements, especially the small tidbits, such as Emily not being able to easily get up because she was wearing a corset.

And I again found the mystery to be the weakest element of the story.
