It Takes a Hero, by Elizabeth Boyle


Not my favorite of the genre, this bodice-ripper is trying to do too much: romance, mystery, suspense. I liked the romance quite a bit, though parts of it felt as overwrought as the heroine’s novels. But there were too many side characters introduced too quickly for the whodunnit to be as mysterious as it wants to be, and the suspense was brief and not very suspenseful. Sloppy editing (ring a peal, not ring a peel) added to the problems. Meh.
