The Truth About Leo (Noble #4) by Katie MacAlister



Reviewed by Tabatha


 Katie MacAlister is back, and I honestly couldn’t be happier! I’ve always loved her trademark witty humor and her colorful cast of characters, so I was delighted to find that she was releasing another historical in her Noble series. I will admit, that I may be a bit of a MacAlister fan girl (it was her books that got me back into reading after all) but I think that she is an amazingly talented lady. The Noble series has always been my favorite of her books, so I’ve eagerly anticipated this fourth installment for some time now. I am exceedingly pleased to report that The Truth About Leo has definitely lived up to my expectations and it was so much fun to read!

We start out the book with Princess Dagmar (or her Serene Highness as she likes to be called) in a bit of a pickle, but that doesn’t keep the ever resourceful Princess down for very long. She jumps at the opportunity presented to her in marrying our injured hero, Leopold Ernest George Mortimer the seventh Earl of March, and quite quickly setting course for England. There these two embark on a thoroughly entertaining journey of intrigue and mystery that will keep you guessing as to what is going to happen with this couple next. I was pleased that Katie brought back the majority of the characters from the previous books in this series, so that we may catch a glimpse as to where they have gone since we last parted. As all of Katie’s heroines are known to do, the Princess stole the show for me. I just loved Dagmar (even if she does have an unappealing name). She is a resourceful woman, and I found her to be beyond funny. She has wit, intelligence, and a forthright manner of speaking that you just can’t help but love. On the flip side though, I wish we got to know Leo a bit more, but I did enjoy what little we got to know of him. Overall, The Truth About Leo was pleasure to read. If you enjoy well written stories with light-hearted humor in your romance and engaging plots, then I couldn’t suggest Katie more strongly as a great author for you to read. I’m definitely looking forward to what Katie has in store for us next.
