Adam was injured years ago and taken in by her father, Adam is mentally disabled and suffered an horrific event, one that her father took great pains to keep secret. Now that Lucy has inherited the inn, her friends from London think she should find a husband, they offer to bring her to town and sponsor her for a season. But Lucy is not sure she wants a husband and can't leave Adam or the inn. They leave her a copy of the Husband Hunter's Guide and encourage her to reconsider. Captain Harry Clare has been staying at the inn since the Pantheon Club closed, he needs to finish his final case and reap his reward. Harry is sure that Adam is the man he has been tasked in finding - a blind man who witnessed a murder. Harry is sure that if he can unlock Adam's secrets, he will find the person responsible for leaking information to England's enemies and will finally finish his mission, get his promised reward, save his family home and get the Pantheon club re-opened. But first he has to get Lucy to trust him enough to leave Adam and go to London. Simple, right? This is a complex story with lots of secrets, surprises and twists. I felt that it would more accurately be described as an historical intrigue novel rather than an historical romance - the romance in this book is VERY light and subtle - I have no idea how Harry and Lucy fell in love as their relationship really it wasn't the primary focus of the book. But there is a really great mystery to solve and a lot of surprising revelations made. There are cameos from characters in the previous book that tie up some loose ends and the introduction of a new character that will make you want to read the next book! *I am voluntarily leaving a review of an eARC that was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher*

I enjoyed the book but it was a bit of a slow burner for me in that the pace was slow to begin with but gradually increased until I was galloping through the pages only to find the ending was fairly abrupt & left some unanswered questions. The characters were well developed, I liked Harry & Lucy, their attraction built throughout the book, they also liked each other. I look forward to more in the series My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read

The work is hard and the days are long, but it's the only life Lucy knows. Her late father always wanted her to be a lady, and some of her friends from school are determined to take her to town so that she has a chance to sample society. Captain Harry Clare is a former soldier, and now an agent for the crown. His current assignment is somewhat vague, tracking down a mysterious blind man, but the path leads him to the Tooth and Nail Inn. Adam, the blind man, has some mental difficulties, and does small tasks for Lucy, who is very protective of him. He showed up at the inn twenty years ago after being attacked, which is how he was blinded, and Lucy and her father have always cared for him. Being asked about the attack always greatly agitates Adam, so Harry gradually befriends him, trying to win his confidence. Initially, Harry just wants to complete his assignment so that he can collect his pay and purchase the family estate from his wastrel older brother, the Earl of Mountjoy. First he has to win Adams's trust and Lucy's confidence that he can care for Adam while she has her brief sojourn into town life. Soon, it becomes clear that the attack on Adam somehow involves Lucy and her father, and that someone still today wants to keep the details a secret. While I'm generally not a fan of spy novels, this story was particularly well written and works perfectly against Harry's and Clare's developing romance. Harry is the kind of hero I love - he's solid, dependable, intelligent, and dedicated. He's attractive, but not flashy, and he's someone I'd want on my side. Lucy doesn't let her head become turned by the rash of proposals she's receiving now that she's the owner of the inn, and her care of Adam is heartwarming. She also enjoys her visit with her friends and dipping her toe into society, but she's happy to get back to her inn. A LADY'S GUIDE TO PASSION AND PROPERTY takes a surprising turn, and I enjoyed every part of this engaging read, from the slow building romance to the twenty year old mystery. The solid hero and heroine only added to my enjoyment of this second installment of the HUSBAND HUNTERS series, and I'm eagerly looking forward to the next book from Kate Moore.

Captain Harry Clare’s arrival and offer of assistance is most timely, especially as all her neighbours seem to have lost their wits and begun proposing to her on the flimsiest of pretexts. There is a fascinating mystery about Lucy’s identity at the core of this romance, which I really enjoyed puzzling out at the protagonists uncovered it. Lucy was a great heroine, with her feet firmly on the floor and well aware of the consequences of her actions. She never did anything which would drop her into the trap of being either a Doormat or Too Stupid To Live heroine, and she had a wonderful hero in Captain Harry Clare, a soldier turned spy who has seen and done too much, leaving him weary and jaded. Lucy is a breath of fresh air to him and despite being assigned to a curious case involving the blind man Adam, he finds himself protective of her. There’s a nice secondary romance in the book involving Nate, a young ‘wannabe’ spy, and his love interest Miranda, a shop girl. The only issue I had with it is that this is obviously one in an ongoing series and prior events and characters are referenced and have significant influence on the story, limiting the potential of the book as a standalone. I haven’t read the previous books in the series and there were definitely moments when I was confused as to what was going on. As such, I have to give it four stars, but if you’ve read the other books in the series, you’ll undoubtedly thoroughly enjoy this. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review through NetGalley.

    One thing I have to mention is that I have not read the first book in this series, and while I had no trouble understanding this story and the characters contained within, I have to wonder if the first book also included passages from the husband hunters book at the start of each chapter.

Because for me, I felt those passages took away from the overall plot instead of adding to it. I feel that this story held its own and stood out among the bevy of spy stories already in circulation to such an extent that the husband hunting guide wasn't needed. I didn't care that Lucy way in London hunting a husband. I cared more about who wanted to hurt Adam (the blind man in her care), and what other mysteries the other spies would uncover. I adored these characters, from the major to the minor and every cast member in between this story made it easy to not only enjoy the differences in the characters, but also to see how they added to the overall arc. There were so many different threads being woven throughout that it is obvious the author knows how to write an engaging story. This story will appeal to those who enjoy a well written historical novel that focuses on romance and mystery. I would read more from this author!

My Thoughts: This is my first time reading this author's work and I may give her another try but I was not bowled over by this book. It has an intriguing plot but I found it bogged down in the middle and didn't totally pull me in. I was intrigued by the blinded old man and how his past was tied into this story but that wasn't enough to make me a fan. I found out later that this is in fact book #2 of a series and maybe if I had read the first book this one would have been a better read for me. Spying and such in Victorian or Regency England seems the norm with books based in that time period so it takes an outstanding plot with just the right twists and turns to hold my attention at present. I gave this book 3.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5.0 flames. This story contained almost no intimacy. It is more a story of discovery and spies than a real love match. I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book via NetGalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

There were moments where I felt I was missing something (some of the relationships were already established- Nate and Miranda, the club are examples). I really didn't see the romance between Lucy and Harry. They didn't have much dialogue IMO. I did like and I also thought the romance between Nate and Miranda was better. It felt like they talked more than Harry and Lucy. I could see them together. Harry and Lucy? Nope. I liked the mystery of who Adam was (and one of the main characters as well), but I felt let down by that too. It was never really explained what happened to Penelope (I know what happened- but the why was left hanging). Penelope's offspring just found out they have family still living. Nothing happens with that. It was just wrapped up too quickly and too many loose ends. While I know this was the 2nd in a series (I haven't read the first one), because this had a new couple getting their HEA, I expected things to be wrapped up more than they were. Oh, and Harry found a glove in the woods that had been there 20 years (moved a pile of leaves and there it was!). And the hidden compartments in the coach I expected to have a place in the mystery/story. eARC courtesy of NetGalley and Kensington Books Published July 3, 2018

Lucy’s friends have come to talk her into leaving the Inn because it is not proper for her to live there without a female companion. However, she disagrees saying that she is now the Innkeeper.

Lucy had been schooled well and her father had wanted her marry well and be a lady. Now, her friends want her to sell the Inn and go to London for her season. They also give her a copy of a book called “The Husband Hunter’s Guide to London.” Captain Harry Clare has been staying at the Inn. He is trying to figure out why the elderly, blind man named Adam Pickersgill stays at the Inn and is cared for by Lucy. Other men in the area are hanging around the Inn hoping to court Lucy and gain her inheritance of the Inn. Lucy just cannot bring herself to leave the Inn for she feels responsible for it and for Adam. Harry is the brother of the Earl of Mountjoy who is allowing the family home, Mountjoy Manor, to moulder away as he drinks himself into oblivion. Harry is part of a group of men promised by Goldsworthy, a spymaster, to have their debts paid for one year’s service to the Crown. Harry convinces Lucy to help him find out who Adam is because it appears that someone is looking to harm him. Why will they uncover? Oh dear. This is the second book of this series. I read the first one and it was as difficult a read as this one. A rather convoluted story, I simply did not care for. I decided to read the second book because Kate Moore is a new author to me and I wanted to be sure and give her writing another chance.

    I received the book from a goodreads giveaway. Very good read. It took a chapter or two for me to really become engrossed by the book. To me, it seemed the mystery was the main focus of the story, as opposed to the romance, but there was romance. It’s a good, slow burn romance, not characters immediately falling for each other. Up until the final chapter the romance is kept PG, but even then it’s fairly tame. The mystery was intriguing and is what kept me interested.

    Grade B. I really like Kate Moore (especially Sweet Bargain) so I nabbed this right off. This is the story of Lucy Holbrook who runs the inn she inherited from her father. It's a big responsibility that she loves but is torn when her friends want her to sell it and use the money to come to London and find a respectable husband. Lucy can't leave behind Adam who has been a fixture of the Inn all her life. Adam is blind from an attack when he was a young man and suffers anxiety outbursts on top of Grade B.

Lucy can't leave behind Adam who has been a fixture of the Inn all her life. Adam is blind from an attack when he was a young man and suffers anxiety outbursts on top of being somewhat simple. Harry Clare is a spy/soldier who has also been staying at the inn with an interest in Adam and his background. And Harry isn't the only one to suddenly have an interest in Adam and his past. Harry also develops a personal interest in Lucy which she returns. All this is rolled up into a mystery that you know will see things to the best of resolutions. There is a guide book mentioned that has bits and pieces quoted before each chapter that I thought were a bit long winded and not particularly interesting and wound up skimming by the end chapters. The Adam mystery is solved but the villain was a bit HUH? This is a sweet romance with an emphasis on the wonderful characters and rightly so.

    I was not familiar with Kate Moore, so upon realizing this was the second book in a series, I immediately read the first, A Husband Hunter's Guide to London. I'm very glad I did (because I enjoyed it immensely), but it is not necessary to thoroughly enjoy A Lady's Guide to Passion and Property. Moore excels at the "slow burn" romance. Lightening does not strike. The hero is not a debauched rake who decides to live a chaste life upon his glimpse of the heroine. Their lust is not immediate and all I was not familiar with Kate Moore, so upon realizing this was the second book in a series, I immediately read the first, A Husband Hunter's Guide to London.

Lightening does not strike. The hero is not a debauched rake who decides to live a chaste life upon his glimpse of the heroine. Their lust is not immediate and all-consuming. What does happen, happens slowly. Trust is built. They learn to depend upon each other. It's over time and awareness that our heroes discover their love. Some secrets are kept, some truths are half-hidden, but all is forgiven because of how well our leads understand each other. It's a testament to Moore's writing that I never once found myself rolling my eyes at the audacity of a character or the ridiculousness of a storyline. This was a well-crafted historical romance/mystery that I wished would never end (and thanks to the teaser at the end of the book, I know I have a third story to look forward to)! I received an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

    If you want to feel like you are actually a part of the Regency era then Kate Moore is your go-to author. Her dialog sets the scenes and feels so authentic. Captain Clare is perfect for Lucy. Lucy is a kind caretaker of Adam. It is only surprising that Lucy’s father didn’t give her more information about Adam and her own history. But then there wouldn’t have been a book with such a page turning mystery and romance. I received this book free for review from the publisher.

    I won this book in a giveaway. I thought it was an enjoyable read-- I liked the old mystery and spy aspect. Having the answers locked inside Adam gave the story an interesting direction, and I loved how well Lucy cared for the old man. I just wish more questions about the past had been answered-- what happened to Penelope? More about Lucy's background? How did Penelope's family feel about Lucy? It ended kind of quickly.

    Nicely written romance. Good plot with some twists. Well developed characters and relationships. Good locations that are described well. I would have liked to see more of Lucy meeting family members that she didn't know existed at the end. It was barely mentioned. Other than that, I really enjoyed this book. Nicely written romance.
