Review: Three Nights of Sin by Anne Mallory

Three Nights of Sin - Anne Mallory

When I picked up Anne Mallory's Three Nights of Sin and read the back, I wasn't all too intrigued. I was pointed in it's direction from a reliable source though and read it anyway. I have to say that the synopsis and title are not really where the story goes. I still don't get where the 'three nights of sin' came in (because they didn't). I think a better summary would been as follows:


After her brother is thrown into jail, Marietta Winters has no one left to turn for help but mysterious Gabriel Nobel. Making a promise to fulfill three ambiguous favors in the future, she is taken into his world of mystery and intrigue. Clues are uncovered and the danger grows, within the case and within her heart. 


Something like that. 

I enjoyed this book. There were some things that gave me puzzle (nothing as much as the synopsis) but overall it was an entertaining read.
