Thanks for telling us about the problem. You have a few plot twists which were a big surprise for me. The dialog is forced to convey nearly all of the plot and character development, with next to no exposition and remarkably little description of place or person. It is indiscretin romance at it’s best.

On and on it goes, twists and turns in Caroline’s life.


The first part, with Caroline going to work for the irascible Mrs Catling, was intriguing and well written, although I was already wondering where the story was leading, but the country house shenanigans were hardly worth waiting for and the ending was rushed. Indiscretion follows the fortunes of Caroline Fortune, daughter of a theatre-loving Captain whose foolhardy schemes and expensive tastes ensure that the pair are always one step away from financial ruin. Caroline Fortune Miss Fortune, get it?

Caroline’s world forever changes when she accepts the position of companion to Mrs. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.

Catling refuses Caroline’s request and says if she leaves she’ll be terminated. Stephen and Caroline were well rounded characters. Finished Indiscretion last night—what a lovely, delicious read!

It’s almost a pity he hasn’t tried to take on the infamous Jane Austen sequel, because I think he could actually pull it off. And it is so mogan described that I can’t even dislike view spoiler [ Mrs.


Although Caro has better experience with gambling hells than genteel parlors, her father nevertheless manages to secure her a place with a cantankerous old lady.

A lot of witty dialogue that actually made me laugh.

This was about a one and a half star for me. A delicious regency romance!! What a promising set-up for gossip and nasty pointed remarks about how adroitly Caroline shuffles a deck of cards!

But, much to her dismay, she is just as quick to realise that love and romance are not what some gentlemen seek and finds herself unjustly implicated in their indiscretions. I know that there are readers who will adore this book, but unfortunately I was not one kndiscretion them. Isabella, who’s engaged to a man who only Caroline knows is a scoundrel; Fanny, who will run off with a man Caroline suspects inidscretion a scoundrel; and Stephen, who vexes Caroline so much that you may as well start shopping for a wedding present now.

Finally, a modern writer who understands the essence of historical novels and knows how to capture that. Hints are dropped that she knows rather more about gambling hells and hangover cures than most gently-bred Regency females, but, alas, the author never spends enough time on Caroline’s life with her father for this interesting aspect to be developed. When scandals start popping up, how will she protect her reputation? Although Caro has better experience with gambling hells than genteel parlors, her father nevertheless manages to secure her a place with a cantankerous old lady.

So subtle, and yet so beautiful! What a droll fellow. There is, for instance, Mrs. First and foremost, Caroline and the love interest who I won’t name, for fear of spoiling the pleasure of discovering who he is are unique, well-thought-out characters.

Then indisxretion halfway in things got real in a hurry. Pitch-perfect writing, and what a sweet last line. Preview — Indiscretion by Jude Morgan. One funny aside — I was given t Oh my! This is supposed to be a comedy satire. The prose especially is in that style, though arguably it’s more readable for the modern reader, and there are several characters who are delightful caricatures, larger-than-life figures, from Mrs Catling to Matthew Downey to Stephen Milner, among others.

So when Captain Fortune, a well-meaning but profligate ex-soldier in Regency England, tells his daughter Caroline that they are ruined, she automatically starts seeking employment as a governess. Her father, however, has far grander designs for Miss Fortune. My only nitpick would be the use of present tense in certain passages which seemed to distract from the flow of the book and seemed more self indulgent than a necessity.
