    1. ***Copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review*****Ho hum. So, I picked this out because I really like The Masqueraders by Georgette Heyer and I haven't really read a lot of Highwayman novels* so fancied something with a bit of peril and girls in trousers and a more modern take. But I think this just has too much going on - there is plenty in the girl turns highwayman plot on its own, but the author just keeps adding layer on layer of peril - until it all gets a bit much. I would've liked [...]

    9. Harriet is simply trying to support her family in the only way she can think of by robbing the rich under the mask of the Green Highwayman. When Edward comes to town, he vows to find the thief at all costs. When the two of them meet, there are immediate sparks, but Harriet knows she needs to stay away lest she gets discovered.

    10. This was an incredibly entertaining story. Two story lines kept the story progressing with insatiable interest. The characters were modernly relatable in a historical setting and this created a fun place for a reader to get lost in. There was a great balance of banter and worry among the characters and the whole story came together as charming and witty. I enjoyed the whole story from start to finish and I wouldn't want to see a single thing changed.

    11. So at first glance I thought this plot was cliché. The book itself though is pleasantly delightful. The characters are realistic, the plot is interesting and there is a beautiful romance.
