I am usually more of a dark fantasy, suspense and horror reader. But having seen Tina-Marie Miller's book advertised on Twitter, the cover caught my attention. I decided to take a chance on it and I'm so very glad I did.

The Curious Miss Fortune reminded me of my favorite shows on the BBC. I never knew what would happen next and I was always eager to find out. The various character sub-stories within the story kept the prose well-paced and smooth; the story line both engaging and compelling.

The Curious Miss Fortune is a fun, mysterious and well-crafted adventure that I highly recommend. I forward to reading more by this author!

Having read author Miller's first book, my expectations were high, and I was not disappointed in any way whatsoever.

The book begins with Tiggy Lawrence, who reluctantly returns home to see her dying father, and I had the impression that the book would be about her; however, it was about far more than one somewhat troubled lady. The story gives the reader an insight into life in the Cotswolds, and we are introduced to a wondrous array of colourful characters, all with their own problems and differences.

The story brilliantly weaves a storyline of several men interested in Tiggy—a nice chap, a nasty one, and one who's somewhere in between—and a play to be put on by the "Hampton Players", plus a widowed woman picking her way through her new-found freedom, which is really quite brilliant! Poppy, the main character from the first book, makes an appearance, which is the crowning glory.

The plots are exquisite and the characters individual and real, and throughout the book, the reader is drawn into it, and I felt that I was there. Sharp, beautifully written, engaging, charming and addictive, The Curious Miss Fortune is a book I would recommend to anyone and everyone. Easily five stars.

A wonderful read.

This is book 2 in The Hamptons series, the first book being Everything Happens for a Reason.

The author has an incredibly inviting inner voice captured within a wonderful writing style. Her characterisation is exceptional and she portrays the abundance of inhabitants of Hampton and their interactions easily and fluidly. The individual characters come to life, so much so, that you begin to imagine who you might cast to play them should the books be optioned for a TV series and my imagination placed Hampton and its properties in likeness of Midsomer Murders. The author has great insight into village life which is convincing and authentic.

I started to read this book because I was in need of some solace away from the horrible happenings in the world and found myself taking refuge in this most delightful world created by Tina-Marie Miller; that is not to say that bad things don't happen even there, but they are treated to the author's clever construction, attention to detail and often tongue in cheek subtle humour.

A wonderful read.
