Book Review: The Daring Exploits of a Runaway Heiress by Victoria Alexander

A love story for the true romantic - that is what comes to mind when reading the latest book by Ms. Alexander. Lucy Merryweather has it made, she is an heiress, having inherited her great aunt's fortune and now she can enjoy life. Her path is not only paved by her great aunt's money, but also by a list of unfulfilled wishes that same great aunt left her. Some more traditional than others; some are outright risque for the time. And one will trump them all!

Travel the world
Solve a mystery
Ride an elephant
Take a lover
Kiss a stranger
Be painted sans clothing
Make certain the world remembers my name

So Lucy starts on her journey to check of the bucket list that her great aunt gave her and enjoy life free of parents, free of (financial restrictions) and only followed by a private investigator that is handsome and intelligent at that. Therefore Cameron Effington follows Lucy as a private investigator and no wonder the two get closer. Cameron finds Lucy interesting, not just as a subject of an "investigation", but also as object that deserves more than his interest since his heart is definitely skipping a beat whenever he sees Lucy. As Lucy works downs the list her great aunt left her, she and Cameron realize that the adventures listed by Lucy's aunt may also serve as stepping stones for their real life romance.

This book was written for the true romantics at heart. Ms. Alexander uses the list to let our pair go from adventure to adventure, realizing that most of life's fun is experienced together.
