    1. This is the first book in the Lady Emily Capers, and as I find Regina Scott’s writing very enjoyable, I am thrilled to begin what is a new series to me. Hannah is an art teacher acting as a chaperone to several students as they visit one of their aunts, the widowed Lady Brentfield. One of the best parts about her character is the selfless attitude she expresses throughout, but I really enjoyed her growth through the novel, from quiet, insecure spinster, to confident woman who finally knows her [...]


    2. Rating: 2.5It was an enjoyable read, however I found it bland. The so called mystery was not much of a mystery at all, the characters pretty "thin" developed and the plot was almost not there. But, although I would've liked to see more passion between the leads, and perhaps more color in the other characters, I liked the book. The writing was decent and easy to follow. This book was like a cup of cheap (in lack of a better word) tea: comforting, yet not quite awakening your taste buds :)


    3. 3.5 stars for my first novel by Regina Scott. This is the first book in the Lady Emily Capers series. Hannah Alexander is an art teacher at the Barnsley School for Young Ladies. She's been assigned to be the chaperone for a group of 4 young ladies who will be visiting the recently widowed Lady Brentfield (one of the young ladies is her niece) over the Easter holidays. Upon arrival Miss Alexander and her charges meet the new owner of the manor, David Tenant, the new Earl of Brentfield, not long a [...]


    4. Originally read as A Dangerous Dalliance. I enjoyed this one, I think I'd like it even more a second time around, especially knowing there is a sequel now. A fun regency with a light mystery. I look forward to reading it again.Content: Clean


    5. Clean fun regency romance.What a fun story. I liked it from the beginning to the end. Good characters and an interesting story. It was a fun well paced book with a good plot. The whole series looks fun to read. I like Mrs Scotts writing style and will be reading more of her books.


    6. Sweet romance.This story was clean, and fun. I will enjoy the rest of the series. I liked these characters. Glad to find another clean author.


    7. This book was enjoyable, easy to read and filled with many humorous lines, especially in the first half. The story was clean and combined both romance and mystery.Hannah Alexander was a self taught artist. She taught art at a ladies college but her dream was to paint for a living. She was ordered by the headmistress of the college to chaperone one of the student's, Priscilla Tate, together with a few of her friends, over the Easter holidays at the home of Priscilla's aunt, Lady Brentfield. Her a [...]


    8. While this story had some intrigue and romance, overall I was left wanting.It had real possibilities. Missing works of art, suspected murder, and a budding romance between people of differing stations in life. The premise worked, but the story just didn't deliver.Secrets and Sensibilities had one-dimensional characters, a Yank who was supposed to be savvy, but came across as a stereotypical Yank, and evil Lady who had no likable characteristics, and the school marm who was beautiful and underapp [...]


    9. I liked this one. I'd say this was a fun mystery, but it was pretty obvious who the bad guy was. It was still fun though and I liked the characters. It also ends like there may be a companion novel, does anyone know?Content: Clean. **Update: Republished 2013 under Secrets and Sensibilities (Regency Romance)


    10. I wanted to like this book, but it was flat and in need good a good editor. The characters and plot were thin and not particularly engaging. Considering the title, I expected a Regency romance, but none of the characters behaved in the manner I anticipated so I was disappointed. It was clean, but not satisfying enough for me to seek out this author again.


    11. Just okayt compelling in the least.This was an okay read. It didn't hold my interest but I like to finish stories. I would say this is a light romance. I found the main couple characters lacking passion. The plot was so evident, the mystery was not a mystery.


    12. This is a cute Regency 'mystery' where a teacher accompanies four students to a house party as a chaperone; meets the new Duke - an American - and falls in love.


    13. This sounds like a better story than it actually is. It has so shallow take on everything that I didn't find it engaging. The instalove got boring quickly and the little mystery twist was pretty obvious. In addition, I wasn't sure about the time period in the beginning because everything sounded too modern for regency but I guess this is supposed to be a regency novel.


    14. This is a good novel to open the series. I liked the story although I didnt think Lady Emily featured enough as it is her series. However, I did like Hannah, she had some gumption and the story moved along.


    15. A heroine who paintsA cute romance about an art teacher acting as a chaperone to a group of her students on a visit to an earl's home. To make things more interesting there are attempted murders and missing art.



    16. History buffs should perhaps give this one a miss, but if you like a light romance that's just a little bit different, give it a try.Nice enough story that kept me smiling throughout.



    17. Hidden treasures, secret passageways, and mysterious accidents make for an enjoyable read in this light romance.


    18. This cozy mystery was entertaining and fun. I enjoyed the characters and all around story! If you want an enjoy read I suggest this book!


    19. Good readWhat a pleasant little romance this is. It has a nice blend of romance and intrigue to hold the reader's interest. The characters are interesting and believable.


    20. I really enjoyed this story! The characters were well developed and the story was about more than just the romance. A bit of a mystery and intrigue wrapped up in a Cinderella like tale.



    21. Goodness, this book was terrible. The plot was not good, the characters had zero development, the story moved so quickly that it was literally umbelievable.Just really, really bad all around



    22. This novel is a bit of a departure from Scott's other books. It takes place after The Twelve Days of Christmas and just before La Petite Four. It introduces the characters of La Petite Four. There is also a mystery which must be solved and murder to avoid. The reader knows exactly who the villain is and what the villain's motivation is. It's painfully obvious yet the characters don't realize it until the end. The villain is very diabolical. I felt a bit sorry for the villain at first but then th [...]


    23. SECRETS AND SENSIBILITIES by Regina Scott was a delightful read. Hannah is an art instructor at an all girls school and the head mistress asks her to accompany 3 girls on their holiday and become a chaperone for them. She does not feel adequate to be a chaperone, but the head mistress insists so Hannah has no choice.David is the new Earl that the 3 girls and Hannah are to visit. He has lived in America all his life, and must learn how to behave like an Earl. He is learning slowly, but when the l [...]


    24. Secrets and Sensibilities by Regina ScottThe Lady Emily Capers Book OneHannah Alexander is looking forward to quitting her job at Barnsley's School for Young Ladies, as her true desire is to paint. She is close to having the funds to move to London and do so. Very close. That is until she is sent to chaperone four young women and everything changes.David Tenant, the new Earl of Brentfield knows little about the aristocracy or about being an earl. He's an American who enjoyed his leather craft bu [...]


    25. What a delightful and fun story this was! Secrets and Sensibilities, a clean regency novel, was packed with interesting characters and a wonderfully written romance. I absolutely loved the way the relationship developed between the two main characters, Hannah and David. There was great romantic attraction and tension between these two, while also respect and plenty of humor.The other side characters have plenty to recommend them, as well. At the beginning of the book, I wasn’t sure if I could [...]


    26. Miss Hannah Alexander is an art instructor for a girl's school, and she's been sent to chaperone four young ladies ona country house visit. She expects to be occupied keeping these four out of trouble, she does not expect to fall for the new Earl of Brentfield almost from the very moment she meets him. I find it interesting that this first book of Lady Emily Capers series has very little to do with Lady Emily herself. We view this tale from the perspective of Hannah and David as they work to sol [...]
