Review for NOT MY IDEA

"Lucas, you must return home."

Twenty two year old Lucas Bywood abandons his Grand Tour in response to those words from his father. Everything is not well at home and he finds himself in a bit of a fix. A little warning that his father had made tentative arrangements for his marriage would have been nice but Luke really wishes it had been anyone other than the young lady chosen. After all, Phoebe Ramsey had always been an annoyance and any time they had spent together had resulted in physical injuries for one of them. 

Just when Luke thinks he's escaped that particular future, he finds himself courting a young woman he doesn’t want, a furious best friend who wants a duel to satisfy honor, and the responsibility of finding who and why someone had caused an accident for his mother. 

This book was almost like a regency series of unfortunate events. Between the miscommunication, the secrets, and so many unspoken things, you never knew what to expect next. Phoebe was dumb as a post, at times, and quick to catch up others. As the wild cannon it was always amusing to see if she knew the game they were playing or if she was in a completely different reality, but it kept the story interesting. It was easy to connect to the characters and to understand Luke and his situation. We've all had moments of being unheard and misunderstood. His frustration was palpable and I rolled my eyes with him more than once as the story played out with him having no control of what was to come. This book was quick read and I recommend it to anyone who might find amusement in this regency series of unfortunate event -  come find out what happens!

For as long as she can remember, Bethany Swafford has loved reading books. That love of words extended to writing as she grew older and when it became more difficult to find a ‘clean’ book, she determined to write her own. Among her favorite authors is Jane Austen, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Georgette Heyer.

When she doesn’t have pen to paper (or fingertips to laptop keyboard), she can generally be found with a book in hand. In her spare time, Bethany reviews books for a book site called More Than A Review.
