3 1/2 stars rounding upThis started strong then just....leveled out for me. It wasn't bad but it didn't capture me like some of Chase's stories do.I really liked all the characters, especially Ladies Cooper and Withcote. Even the servants were interesting. The plot was pretty good, it kept me engaged well enough. Unfortunately, the emotions fell flat and the "adventure" was just ok.I also felt a little cheated by the lack of dialogue between Lisle and Olivia. I think the story would have been better if there was more banter. I still think it's worth the read.
