Sophia’s #CBR5 Review #15: Someone to Watch Over Me by Lisa Kleypas

Someone to Watch Over MeI’ve discovered that romance novels immediately available on Kindle and free from the library are almost as hard to resist as chips and brownies. I’d enjoyed When Strangers Marry enough that I wanted to see what else Kleypas had written. My library has a pretty extensive collection of Kleypas books on Kindle, so I downloaded Someone to Watch Over Me (1999).

Plot: Grant Morgan, a Bow Street Runner, pulls an infamous courtesan out of the Thames River. Vivien Duvall wakes up and cannot remember anything about herself. Grant tries to discover the identity of the attempted murderer. He also decides to sleep with Vivien before she remembers who she is to get her back for spreading some nasty rumours about him. Vivien tries to remember her past life.

  1. [vibrating with excitement]

    Lisa Kleypas is my QUEEN, although Courtney Milan is working on a coup. Kleypas has so many great books and you haven’t actually read any of the ones I would put in that category yet. When my current historical romance obsession started, I bought almost all of her books for a penny plus shipping. I have all my favourites on Kindle now, too.

    Ross Cannon is indeed yummy as is his book. I will resist the temptation to give you a list of books to march through.

  2. Oh good. I was hoping Cannon’s story would be a good one. I was somewhat limited by which of her books were immediately available at the library, but I’m sure I’ll get around to most of them eventually.

  3. Although I’m not as big a fan as Prolixity Julien I also read this book and was REALLY disappointed and inclined to write off Kleypas entirely. The heroine-with-amnesia thing made her into a flat character who served only as a foil to be tied to the train tracks. Bleh. But Julien is right – others are more fun and worth checking out 🙂

    • It’s funny you mentioned that because when I saw the books she’d read, I thought, “Oh, no! She didn’t read any of the good ones!”. Fortunately, it looks like it was just good enough to keep Sophia4747 going.
