A lovely cinderella style story

This is book 3 in the matches made in scandal book series. Although this is the 3rd book in the series you don't have to read book 1 and 2 beforehand, although I do recommend them. The procurer has a proposition for Becky wickes, one that can change her life.In exchange for a large sum of money Becky will have to travel to Venice and help Conte Luca Del Pietro avenage his father's murder. But will Becky be able to help him seek justice for his father Becky wickes, heart broken and hiding from the authorities for doing sleight of hand card tricks is in desperate need of a second chance, so when the procurer offers her a chance to get away from her past she isn't going to turn her down. Your find out quite alot about Becky in the beginning of the book and I found myself immediately liking her.I like the way marguerite kaye has made Becky so outspoken and can stand her own ground. What can we say about the amazing chemistry between Becky and luca. From the start these to hit it off and the chemistry is instant which is one off the reasons that I was hooked from the beginning . Marguerite kaye did an amazing job of giving you visual descriptions from lucks house, Venice to the characters themself's, such detail making you feel like you could picture it/ them. She is such a talented writer. I can safely say that I would recommend this book. A lovely book to read that has you hooked from the start, I found at times that I couldn't put it down as wanted to know what was going to happen next.
