A Week to Be Wicked is the third book in the Spindle Cove series although most of the book does not take place in Spindle Cove. Minerva Highwood is sure that Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne is going to ask her sister Diana to be his wife. Diana is a wonderful person but Minerva does not think Colin is the right man for her so she comes up with a plan to divert Colin. That is just the start of a mad adventure that takes the two of them all the way to Scotland.
Tressa Dare’s books are full of humor and A Week to Be Wicked is no exception. Minerva and Colin’s interactions brought both smiles and chuckles as I was reading. Neither were lightweight characters. They both had their demons to deal with. The story allowed each character to grow and change while they battled with problems that threaten to sabotage their journey. All in all this was a fun read with a well though out plot and a good satisfactory romance. I look forward to the next book in the Spindle Cove Series.
Here is what Goodreads has to say about the book:
When a devilish lord and a bluestocking set off on the road to ruin…Time is not on their side.
Minerva Highwood, one of Spindle Cove’s confirmed spinsters, needs to be in Scotland. Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne, a rake of the first order, needs to be…anywhere but Spindle Cove.
These unlikely partners have one week to
• fake an elopement
• convince family and friends they’re in “love”
• outrun armed robbers
• survive their worst nightmares
• travel four hundred miles without killing each other
All while sharing a very small carriage by day and an even smaller bed by night.
What they don’t have time for is their growing attraction. Much less wild passion. And heaven forbid they spend precious hours baring their hearts and souls.
Suddenly one week seems like exactly enough time to find a world of trouble. And maybe . . . just maybe . . . love.(less)
Avon published A Week to Be Wicked by Tressa Dare in 2012.
I requested and received a copy of A Week to Be Wicked from Edelweiss only to find that I had it on pre-order from Amazon. When the book arrived I read the paper copy not the eARC.
