****3.5/5 stars: Liked it. Your favorite female sleuth is back to save herself and maybe a friend.

Recommended readers:

  • If you like a female sleuth
  • If you are a G-rated historical romance
  • If you like a strong female lead who challenges society

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 3.5/5 for characters
  • 3.5/5 for plot
  • 3.5/5 overall
  • Note: Steamy factor (1 of 5 … harmless)


City of Schemes is the fourth novel in the Counterfeit Lady series – and my first. If you love a smart, female sleuth and G-rated romance, then Victoria Thompson is perfect for you. Featuring Elizabeth Miles, a reformed criminal, who’s preparing for her wedding to a popular society lawyer, Gideon Bates, when a criminal who Elizabeth previously set-up returns to blackmail her and her fiancé’s reputation.

I have a feeling that the previous three novels may have a little more romance – but City of Schemes kept me guessing: How was Elizabeth going to get out of this situation with harm to her reputation?
