  • Caz
    I gave this a C- over at AAR which I suppose is 2.5 starsThis regency era romance from debut author Emily Greenwood promised much. There’s a certain whimsical nature to the plot, the hero is quite devastatingly gorgeous (aren’t they all?), and the writing is well-crafted. But it became clear quite early on that the premise, while rather delightfully quirky, was also extremely flimsy, and I found that the heroine got on my nerves quite quickly...

A delightfully charming read, sprinkled on top with mischief.A Little Night Mischief is the first book in the Mischief series, and it did not disappoint me.After winning the Tethering estate during gambling, it became the perfect solution for James Collington to restore it and sell the land in order to save his family name and Granton Hall his family estat...

    A very cute historical romance! A Little Night Mischief was a sweet book that charms.Felicity was a good heroine, though I had a couple of issues with her that made me knock off a star. She was very stubborn in her opinions and that ended up being to her disadvantage. Despite her good impression of James in their anonymous first meeting, she immediately hates him for being the man that won her house in a game of cards. At first, it was understand...

    Spoiler alert. I couldn't finish it I didn't want to see his reaction when he found out she wasn't a virgin.

  • The Window Seat
    Books in general are great ways to escape reality for a time. Romance specifically gives a reader the chance to experience some of the strongest emotions there are for two people: attraction, lust and that ever powerful Love. I began my read of A Little Night Mischief needing that escapism from some hard things that were happening in my real life and I wanted to live vicariously through the characters while I dealt with other kinds of emotions. S...

    When I saw the preview for this book on NetGalley, I thought, "This looks cute." When I got the approval to read, I was pleasantly surprised. This is a great first book by a new author. There are definite fits and starts that are part of any first books but a solid start to a series I will continue to read.Random thought: total props to creating what is a new (at least to me) description for boobs on page 361, "her delirium-inducing bosom." What ...

    In A Little Night Mischief, we get to know the vibrant character of Felicity Wilcox. She wants nothing more than to regain ownership of the Tethering estate. But the charming James Collington has won the ownership in a game of chance. He needs the estate to fix a wrong and Felicity wants to fulfill a promise she made to her dying mother. Their journey through the book is both heartwarming and comical (I literally laughed out loud).All in all ever...

    I really enjoyed reading this book. Felicity and James were such entertaining and lovely characters. They both had their flaws but you were rooting for them the whole story. Felicity wants to keep her beloved home in the family but thanks to an irresponsible uncle that dream can come true. James is now the owner of her family home and has plans that would greatly upset Felicity if she were to know about them. Felicity tries desperately to get Jam...

    The cover of this book GOT ME. The little smiles on their faces, that's not something I see a lot of on a romance cover and honestly. I want to see it more. I think maybe I've seen it on a Tessa Dare novel (When A Scot Ties The Knot I think...which is a FOREVER FAVE). So I was intrigued, and the concept gave me hopes. But something fell apart for me, and I can't even really put my finger on it. Perhaps it's my own currently stressed out state tha...

    I had already read 2 of this author's books for a different series and I decided to give this one a try to see if she stayed just as good (sometimes they don't) but she did. The main character, Felicity Wilcox was a riot. She is upset because her stupid uncle lost her home in a card game and now she must try and get it back. She kept doing crap that had me rolling. Poor James didn't stand a chance with her hunting him, trying to thwart him at eve...

    For this review and more visit my blogI loved the blurb for A Little Night Mischief and couldn’t wait to get stuck in, but it was not quite what I expected and I didn’t really like it.Felicity is devastated when she learns her Uncle lost their family home whilst gambling. Forced to move out with little money Felicity and her family are starting to struggle. When she meets the new owner James she hopes she can appeal to his moral side and get ...

    I completely enjoyed every moment I spent reading this story. It drew me in right from the first with a sweet, romantic little "meet cute". The chemistry and attraction was off the charts leaving them both a little starry-eyed and hoping for more. Of course, their second meeting didn't go quite so well. (Cue the humorous tone set throughout the book.)Felicity and James were a hoot trying to outdo one another and keep a step ahead in their little ...

    A LITTLE NIGHT MISCHIEF by Emily Greenwood is an amazing debut Regency Historical Romance. "Mischief"#1,what an amazing beginning for this talented author. Follow, James Collington and Felicity Wilcox on a wild journey of witty banter,a bit of mystery,lots of passion,and a love to write home about. The plot was intriguing and the characters engaging. James is teetering on the edge of debtor's prison,due to no fault of his own. Felicity's uncle,ha...

    Ms. Greenwood's writing shows promise as a debuting author - the reason for upping the rating by 1 to 3 stars.The plot outline has elements of humour, always a welcome tilt. The hero, James Collington, is an alpha hunk, however has a sensitive side which shows in his caring for his aunt and the persistence he shows in pursuit of his goals, romantic and otherwise. That his drive to succeed and pragmatism nudge him off the path of romantic 'hero'do...

    I just couldn't get into this one. The heroine was unbelievably childish and a bit stupid and the hero was very generic. There wasn't anything particularly wrong with the book, I just couldn't get myself to care, even with the vague and dramatic references in Felicity's thoughts ( didn't like the vagueness about why she wouldn't marry at all). With such a huge TBR pile, I am just not wasting more time on this one. It just wasn't for me.
  • Melanie
    This light hearted debut is fun and entertaining. I giggled throughout reading it.The story is fast paced and the characters might have been a bit more rounded, but the plot and romance of these two was entertaining enough for me to overlook that part.Once in a while I'm in a mood for a story that is filled with humor and sweet romance, and this one had all of that.Melanie for b2bComplimentary copy provided by the publisher

    This was such a sweet, fun, cheerful book - until the ending. I guess, technically, it had a happy ending - at least the main character seemed pleased with how things turned out, but I was hugely disappointed. I'm not really sure what else to say about this book. I've never had a romance that made me sad at the end. Very strange.
  • Lezli Horn
    Cute read. The heroine is young (20) so just be prepared for this if used to a more mature heroine. The setting is fun. Would be an easy summer read at the cottage or beach. Is available in EBook edition.
  • D Nichols
    Lots of fun to read. Not a serious book but I just wanted something light to read for doctor's offices. Book 2 looks fun too.

    It was an ok read. The plot was slightly less than exciting, though. Yo know something had to give, and what happens is expected. The end was a bit of a gloss-over.
  • Cecilia Rodriguez
    The pace of the plot is too slow. There is very little chemistry between the two main characters. The cover is warmer than the story inside.
