I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

A nice romance. With banter.

A Bachelor Establishment - Isabella Barclay

And some kind of crime/mystery plot.

 

Very different from the St. Mary's series, but still the same feel.

 

What I noticed, that this author seems to prefer damaged heroines, as in both works the female lead has a history of abuse. I could have lived without that - my personal opinion is, that this is overused as a tool in books. Not sure if it is supposed to give depth, explain spleens or whatever. It makes me uncomfortable.

Here is was fairly well done, as it was a sort of realistic setting for a wife in that period. 

But it contradicted the light-hearted romance a bit. Didn't ruin the atmosphere completely, but didn't help either.

 

All in all a very good read.
