Point of Honour by Madeleine E. Robins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Good Labor Day read that involved absolutely no brain labor on my part! Sarah Tolerance is a "fallen woman" during the Regency period. King George is mad, politicians are crooked and maneuvering for the throne, and she lives in a cottage behind her aunt's upscale whorehouse. Sarah isn't a working lady--but she did run off to the continent with her fencing instructor, leading to her current status. Now she isn't above dressing like a man and displaying her fighting skill to protect herself as she investigates acts of mischief. This is more mystery and who-done-it than romance, which was okay by me.
