    A Lady s Decption by Pamela Mingle is Book Two in the Haslemere Men Series This is the story of Mr Hugh Grey and Miss Eleanor Broxton I have read the previous book but feel this can easily be a standalone book Hugh and Eleanor had been friends when they were younger and on the Eve of him leaving for Canada he wanted to say goodbye to Eleanor They had an encounter in the barn that meant everything to Eleanor and she hoped it meant something to Hugh But for about three years she never he A Lady s Decption by Pamela Mingle is Book Two in the Haslemere Men Series This is the story of Mr Hugh Grey and Miss Eleanor Broxton I have read the previous book but feel this can easily be a standalone book Hugh and Eleanor had been friends when they were younger and on the Eve of him leaving for Canada he wanted to say goodbye to Eleanor They had an encounter in the barn that meant everything to Eleanor and she hoped it meant something to Hugh But for about three years she never heard from him and now his is back in town trying to fix up his old childhood home Eleanor is working as a seamstress trying to earn money much to her parents upset but her and her parents have a secret that they are keeping Eleanor feels this money will help her start a new life but now Hugh is back and she knows she has to stay away from him to keep her secret Eleanor is also somewhat upset that he never contacted her in all those years he was gone and he has been back in town for all most a month and he hasn t reach out to her Hugh is trying to fix up his home and his life before moving forward with someone and he finds that he still has feelings for Eleanor but she seems distant and sad to him This was a great second chance at love story My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read

    So much for the heroine s fair hair gives the cover designer a dirty look I don t consider it a spoiler to say that this is a secret baby book The information is right there in the blurb, and it is information we learn very early on.I m going to say this at the start a skunk is an American animal There was some US English in this book I overlooked because the writing was good, but the suggestion of skunks in the forests of 1810s England made me groan.I was really excited when I starte So much for the heroine s fair hair gives the cover designer a dirty look I don t consider it a spoiler to say that this is a secret baby book The information is right there in the blurb, and it is information we learn very early on.I m going to say this at the start a skunk is an American animal There was some US English in this book I overlooked because the writing was good, but the suggestion of skunks in the forests of 1810s England made me groan.I was really excited when I started reading Despite belatedly noticing the book dealt with my most hated trope that secret baby , I was enjoying this so much I stayed up until sunrise reading.However, as the story continued and continued it became quite clear this was yet another secret baby book where the hero wouldn t find out he was a father until too late for the woman to be redeemed in my eyes She had no good reason for her secrets and lies They were back together, lovers, declaring their love, no barriers between them and she STILL didn t tell him.When they again started having sex at the halfway mark, I thought he should already have known But it wasn t until 63% in that she finally confessed while crying again There was no reason they couldn t have been together and happy There were no other barriers to their relationship.I had one other issue the short scenes Each chapter features lots of little snippets of things, two or three pages of characters doing stuff, before we jump ahead in time to the next Additionally, each of these time jumps comes with three days later, two weeks later, the next morning, the next evening written at the top of them I felt like I was reading a film script.I don t know what happened that a book I was enjoying so much became a book that made me so frustrated I gave the heroine until beyond the halfway point to come clean, and she didn t This is why I dislike secret babies so much.On the other hand, I d be happy to try another book by this author provided the theme is different Review copy provided by NetGalley.

    My Opinion I like both of these characters and they did have plenty of passion between them I just felt like someone should smack some sense into both of them Hugh for not acting like a grown up and putting the past behind him to move forward and Eleanor for not telling the truth from the start With the back and forth throughout the book, it just made me want to shake them The writing was good and I didn t get bored reading this story I just felt that there was just to much back and forth a My Opinion I like both of these characters and they did have plenty of passion between them I just felt like someone should smack some sense into both of them Hugh for not acting like a grown up and putting the past behind him to move forward and Eleanor for not telling the truth from the start With the back and forth throughout the book, it just made me want to shake them The writing was good and I didn t get bored reading this story I just felt that there was just to much back and forth and it annoyed me Yes, annoyed me Overall, the book was good and I enjoyed it I love the fact that Hugh gave Eleanor a kitten I thought how sweet can one person be But, at the end when he was the one to crawl back to her cause of things he saidWell, I felt it should have maybe been the other way around Eleanor should have because she lied about the baby But, then that would not have been to romantic I don t know I am not a writer, I am just a reader I give this book 3 of 5 stars
