Alisa's Review: The Daring Exploits of a Runaway Heiress by Victoria Alexander


Kindle Edition352 pages
Published April 28th 2015 by Zebra

To Do:
Swim naked in the moonlight
Play in a high stakes card game
Ride an elephant
Be painted sans clothing. 
Take a lover. . .

Lucy Merryweather has inherited a fortune--and her great-aunt's list of unfulfilled wishes. What better way to honor her memory than by accomplishing as many of them as possible? And with Lucy's family an ocean away in New York, nothing stands in her way--if one ignores the private investigator hired to spy on her. 

Yet Cameron Effington is infuriatingly difficult to ignore. . .

As a reporter, Cameron is always looking for a good story. An American heiress running rampant between Millworth Manor and Mayfair is the perfect subject. Not to mention captivating. And extremely kissable. And if Lucy believes he's a detective? Well, the truth should never get in the way of a good story--or hinder delicious, impetuous passion. . .

Barnes and Noble:

This story was not very entertaining, it did not hold my interest at all. The story baseline was good but the actual story was just ... blah.
Lucy Merryweather, was trying to hard to be "independent" and just really didn't think things through. Yes, she had a plan but she didn't take much into consideration. Way too trusting of people. Good thing Clara West was there for her, do finalize plans and make things happen.
Then there was Cameron, he just kinda went along with the flow, more or less. He did try to talk Lucy out of a lot of the activities, and was justified in his disapproval.
Lucy was just way to naive for her age!
I felt that there were several parts of the book that was just rambling.
