No Place for a Lady by by Jade Lee

The London rookeries are slums, rife with criminals, and shunned by the upper crust.

But someone there intends to murder one of England’s greatest leaders, and Marcus Kane, Lord Chadwick, will follow every clue, even into the bowels of London’s underground. But he can’t find his way alone.

A partner is required.

Fantine (Fanny) Delarive is perfect. She knows the slums better any, has survived its labyrinth alone for years, and knows every criminal lurking in every dark corner.

Then, the investigation detours the pair into the bright ballrooms of the ton.

And Fantine fits in here, too.

Which changes everything.

Lord Chadwick knows a woman of Fantine’s ilk is entirely unsuitable for him. But she’s infinitely more exciting than any well-born lady he’s ever met.

Now much more than an acquaintance with the independent, self-reliant Fantine is required… and it must end with nothing less than marriage.

My thoughts:

Jade Lee is a great writer and author. The book started out decent and then I could not get into the read. I wanted more of the time period and there were things that did not add up. Women wouldn’t be openly talking about a mistress for the hero. She rips her dress and shows a lot of leg which would lead to a scandal but nothing is made of it. Things like this just didn’t add up for me. The writing is good just not the plot.
