Engaging Deception

I have always enjoyed Regina Jennings stories. Engaging Deception is the third book in the Joplin series. I found it to be a little different than I thought. 

Olive Kentworth loves to design buildings  The trouble is, in the last century women just did not do that. She has designed buildings using her cousin as a cover. But when she meets widower Maxfield Scott, a highly trained architect, she becomes involved with him by becoming the nanny for his children while he escorts his lady friend.  She uses the time to study books from his library.

Although Maxfield is courting the daughter of one of his clients, he finds himself drawn to Olive.

This story was a unique twist. Olive's interest in architecture was not a subject that most women would find terribly interesting.  But Ms Jennings always puts her spin of compelling characters, adventurous family members, and witty dialogue. And always a clean read.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from Net Galley and the publisher. All views expressed are my honest opinion.
