Mischief by Amanda Quick

Mischief by Amanda Quick is another one of those books I read as a teenager and I wanted to read again. It was not as good as her other books, hence the 3 stars I gave it. With fiction books, and this is a regency novel, I do not recommend books which I don’t give at least 4 stars, so I would not recommend it, but I enjoyed it. The thing is that, with fiction, the enjoyment is paramount when picking a book to read/recommend, as I rarely learn something from them.

Mischief by Amanda Quick

This is the story of Imogen Waterstone and the cold-blooded Earl of Colchester. I liked him a lot, but she was starting to get annoying. Also, Zamar is mentioned so many times that it was repetitive, which was a shame. She asked for his help with a scheme which would help her get a revenge on someone who, in her mind, made her friend commit suicide. It would have been such a good book without the Zamar stuff and with her being less quirky. She was intellectual and interested in ancient civilizations, but, at the same time, unable to manage not to break stuff, including jeopardizing said ancient artefacts, which made her unlikeable.

  • I’m quite intrigued by the book, even if you say you won’t recommend it. I haven’t read anything by the author. Sometimes we enjoy books which we don’t rate highly, and that’s fine. Being entertained is also important.

    • I did not recommend it because it has some themes that are repeated a bit too much, for my taste. I do love many of her other books. I hope you’ll like it if you are going to read it. πŸ™‚

  • Hi Anca,
    I have never read any books by this author, and as it sounds as though her books my a bit hit and miss, I probably shan’t bother adding her to my list, as I already have a huge backlog of review reading to catch up on – ‘Too many books, Too little time’

    I hope that you next foray into fiction reading is better for you πŸ™‚
