HER FATEFUL DEBUT by @ggvandagriff —book review

HER FATEFUL DEBUT by G. G. Vandagriff. I had a harder time with this book than I expected. At first, I didn't feel the tension that was supposed to be there. I didn't feel threatened or alarmed for Penelope. All the words indicated it but the emotion wasn't there. Then, the method the author said was used to snap someone's neck was incorrect. I happen to train in that particular discipline and we are definitely not taught how to break necks (even at the higher belts). With those two things happening fairly early in the book, I had a hard time getting through the rest of the book. The characters seemed easy enough to enjoy but it wasn't enough to for me to get over my initial reaction to the book. That being said, not every book is for everyone so someone else may absolutely love this book.

Classic Regency romance with a dash of suspense . . . 
Beautiful Miss Penelope Swinton wants to live out her life as a spinster in her beloved Northamptonshire, but with an ailing father and an entailed estate, she must come to London and enter the Marriage Mart. And if she must marry, she is determined to marry for love. 
In a brief respite from the social whirl of the season, she retreats from the restrictions of the ton to sketch in the park and stumbles over a French spy. When Penelope finds her life in danger, Viscount Beau Wellingham steps up to protect her, however he has secrets of his own. Wellingham leads a clandestine life as an agent for the Foreign Office trapping spies. In defending her life, he unwittingly puts her reputation at risk. 
In order to save Penelope from society’s scorn, Beau presses for a betrothal. Though she resists, he insists. Soon Beau is unable to deny the attraction he feels towards her. Before he can act on his feelings, danger rises again. This time, his life is on the line.  
With a desperate spy closing in, Penelope must choose the safety of what she has always known or a chance for love. But will she be too late?
