Rated 35 Blue RibbonsA satisfying regency whodunit especially for those who love the nuances of a riches to rags to riches theme with some Cinderella similaritiesLaura Brown returns to London hoping to care for her father who is injured only to arrive too late Disguised so that no one recognizes her Laura visits her father's grave and then feeling threatened by the constable accompanying her runs off through the streets of London and seeks shelter in an open coachHidden in the shadows of the coach interior Lady Milford greets the unexpected guest guessing right away that she's the notorious Laura Falkner in disguise Well aware of Laura's downfall in society since her disappearance several years ago when her father was accused of stealing the Blue Moon diamond Lady Milford offers her assistance After arriving at her home the lady gifts Laura a pair of red silk and beaded dancing slippers much to Laura's annoyance since she believes that she will never reuire such beautiful things again But Lady Milford suspects differently and insists she take them as well as become the companion of her dear friend Lady JosephineLady Milford is a bit of a matchmaker which Laura discovers once she realizes that she is now the companion to the aging aunt of the scoundrel who accused her father of theft He is also the miscreant whose face she scarred for life as she escaped to Portugal with her father as well as the eligible gentleman Laura had hoped to marry—Alexander Alex Ross the Earl of CopleyLord Copley is thrilled astonished as well as suspicious when he finds Laura in his aunt's home disguised as a spinster There's no hiding her beauty from him as he has longed for her since her disappearance Feeling as though he has been given a second chance to win her heart can he keep Laura from investigating her father's past in order to clear his name Will Alex win Laura's affection once before she discovers his secretsSTROKE OF MIDNIGHT is book two of the CINDERELLA SISTERHOOD novels Since I haven't read the first or third one I'm not sure of the connection with the series but I assume it may be the red shoes which are passed on That's the only detail that I felt I missed so I believe it's fairly easy to read this series out of order if you wishIn the beginning the heroine is naïve and immature for her age but I assume this was caused by her years of isolation with her father in the mountains of Portugal away from society since the year of her debut Her hope to solve the mystery of the missing Blue Moon diamond and clear her father's name is noble if not foolish Acting in disguise as a lady's companion allows Laura to attend the balls with her employer while remaining in the background fairly unseen as a servant It's only a matter of time before someone else recognizes her besides Alex and the ton is not kind to those disgraced by crime even if by affiliationLaura's character grew on me as the novel progressed even though I felt she was naïve and foolish in the beginning She had a lot to overcome and for the most part she did so with grace and humility earning the respect of those who truly mattered She wasn't without flaws which made her believable for the times When she stood up for herself against her peers I became a fan of her spunkAlex is complex because the reader doesn't understand the reasons for his actions until almost the end of the novel Although he seems aloof as is typical with his position in society his personality is shaped by his past and I really enjoyed his transformation I especially appreciated how this couple's relationship develops further when the reader is given a broader glimpse of their story that goes beyond where most romance novels end For this story it's necessary to continue past their nuptials so the difference makes sense and buoys their happy ever afterSTROKE OF MIDNIGHT is a satisfying regency whodunit especially for those who love the nuances of a riches to rags to riches theme with some Cinderella similarities Although some of the plot is predictable toward the end many of the circumstances were unexpected and enhanced my overall enjoyment I like that the evil stepmother and stepsisters weren't relatives as in the fairy tale but you had to imagine which characters were playing those parts in this author's version The Cinderella similarities are subtle which makes this version unpredictable and fun for the reader to guess who is whoReviewed by Dorine courtesy of Romance Junkies
