CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
Set in 1832, Regency England, Meyers latest addition to the Abbey Brothers Series, Lady Likes The Lord, grabbed me immediately. With Meyers vivid descriptions, I could see the fancy ballrooms and all the Ton dressed to impress. As well as, see the back street taverns including the low life and criminal elements, almost smell the horse-flesh, and felt Edmund’s frustration. The criminal element Meyers crafted for Lady Likes The Lord, made my skin crawl. A truly evil man without conscience or a sense of right and wrong. Filling her tale with emotion, action, and secrets, I read this book straight through as I could not put it down. I was back with old friends from the earlier books, learning the latest in their lives, and loving every minute spent with them. I love books with recurring characters; the Kay sisters and the Abbey brothers never fail to entertain.
