Reviews The Lady Travelers Guide to Deception with an Unlikely Earl (The Lady Travelers Society, #3)

  • Tahyun
    This story was somehow an exciting slow burn. It took it's time but I was still flipping pages (figuratively; it was a digital copy) as fast as I possibly could!Oh, la, do I love historical romances set abroad! Don't get me wrong, ballrooms and Hyde Park are wonderful - but it's nice to get out and about every now and again. The author truly paints the scenes in the most marvelous ways. I have never been to Egypt (and certainly not Egypt of the 1...

    This is the story of spinster Sidney, an untraveled author of stories on Egypt and Harry, a very well-traveled expert on Egypt who calls Sidney out as a fraud. This leads to the both of them traveling to Egypt with three charming older ladies and one nosy reporter in tow.This book was quite different from what I was expecting and from what I've been reading lately, but I really enjoyed it. Parts of it moved a bit slowly, but thanks to the banter ...

    This had a delightful screwball romantic comedy kind of vibe, which was not what I expected going in, but it worked! It was not unlike a tasty piece of fluffy pie. Pros: The tone was light and seriously funny, the dialogue, the meddlesome "old ladies," the banter, neither the hero nor the heroine were very angsty* or full of themselves.* Don't get me wrong, I love angst and turmoil a stupid amount, but I loved that Alexander framed this in such a...

There's nothing more entertaining than watching two people try to outsmart one another. And what a strange situation our hero and heroine find them in; traipsing around Egypt trying to keep their secrets secret.Usually our heroines a...

    What FUN! I've been a fan of The Lady Travelers book since the first one! This one is probably my favorite.What happens when you've studied all things Egypt for your whole life, but have never actually been there? You begin to write about it! Your editor doesn't believe an unmarried young woman would know as much as the writing shows you do, AND somehow, everyone assumes that you're an old widow, well you become Mrs. Gordon and the Queen of the D...

    This historical romance was really entertaining. Harry Armstrong has spent years exploring in England.

Unfortunately, Miss Sydney Honeywell is already using her grandmother's memoirs to write entertaining and engaging stories about life in Egypt. She didn't expect anyo...

    Sidney Honeywell did not set out to deceive. She was just telling about adventures her grandmother had in Egypt and at the same time making money for herself. Who knew people would think she was the one having the adventures. Of course some one is threatening to expose her as a fraud and that just cannot happen. Enter the trip to prove she is o is not a fraud and the man she must deceive. A fun romp with many, many laugh out loud moments as Sidne...

    Harry tends to just blurts things out, "he stared down at her . God she was stubborn. And lovely in the starlight . And annoying. And shockingly appealing. And a fraud. And…“I have the most absurd desire to kiss you, Mrs. Gordon,” he said without thinking." sidney tries her best to be proper with Harry, “well I’m not going to have such a discussion clad in my chemise and corset. It’s… undignified.” The corners of his mouth quirked...

    Another lovely installment in the Lady Travelers series. I liked the characters and the humor, which had me laughing out loud. The story takes us to Egypt and I could imagine the maze of the souk. There are no boring too detailed descriptions of the traveling and the ending is very satisfying. I read an advance copy and voluntarily post this review.
  • Delacey
    I found this book hard to get into. I put it down many times and then attempted to read it again. I'm having trouble pinpointing what was lacking in the book. Maybe it was my mood, I just found this story to be OK, there were some amusing spots, but there were times the book was very slow. *I received and ARC of this book from NetGalley and this is my voluntary and honest review.
  • Becky Damoth
    I enjoyed this adventurous and fun book. I liked all the characters and loved their travels through Egypt. I would recommend this to my patrons.
  • Emily S.
    I didn’t like anything-the title is awkward, the characters were annoying, and the writing was mediocre at best. Not my cup of tea.
  • Cay Scheumack
    This book is filled with lies, adventure, and lots of humor. Harry, the Earl of Brenton accuses Sydney,the author of Tales of a Lady Adventurer in Egypt that she has never been to Egypt. The solution found was that they would travel to Egypt together with a reporter to find out the truth. Sydney's friends, the elderly lady traveler's decided she needed chaperones and went, too. These ladies are intrepid and keep you in stitches with their antics....

    I enjoy Victoria Alexander's books, this book did nothing for me. Waiting for the author next book.

    Both Sidney Honeywell and Harry Armstrong (Earl of Brenton) have something to hide. Sidney cannot risk Harry discovering that she isn’t the experienced traveler her stories in the papers make her appear: mind you she never meant for anyone to think her stories were factual. Harry has to debunk Sidney’s validity while making sure she doesn’t discover that he isn’t the the Earl of Brenton’s nephew, but is actually is in fact the Earl who ...
