    Even though I've definitely burned myself out on historical romances, I still rather enjoyed this one! If you're a fan of the genre and want to read something fast and fun and also really, really gay, I highly recommend!

    I was sent this book as an advanced copy by the publisher via Edelweiss for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own. Historical romance is a genre I rarely read but with the recent surge of f/f historical romance I find myself more and more interested in the genre. Or maybe it's just that I'm so starved of f/f that I'll read it no matter the genre.This was my first book by Cat Sebastian and after hearing great things by my friends I was maybe slightly disappointed that I couldn't g ... more

    Last week, I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Ms.Olivia Waite's latest historical wlw romance. I was hooked and before finishing the book, I began searching for more of such genre. Thankfully, Tara reviewed and recommended A Little Light Mischief by Cat Sebastian. My smile was as wide as Tim Curry's when he discovered the credit card used by Macaulay Culkin to check himself in The Plaza was a stolen one.I immediately purchased the audiobook, (later discovered that the eb Last week... more

    This is my very first historical FF romance. Although I own all Turner books by Cat Sebastian, I haven’t gotten around to listening to them yet. 😅 And although, I have not read any books in this series, this can perfectly standalone and I can follow the storyline easily. 😌Alice was casted away by her own father a few months ago because of a sin she didn’t even commit. Now she’s in London being a lady companion, safe and sound and well-fed for the first time in her life. Her life is ... more

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Alice was disowned by her family for something that wasn't her fault but her new situation has her with idle hands for the first time in her life and eyes that can't help but follow the maid.Molly was used to doing whatever it took to survive, thievery and cheating, but she finally has a stable working situation and is determined to not lose it I received this... more

    This book is a freaking delight. Despite being a novella, the character work is excellent, especially Alice's arc from woman who tries not to be noticed at the beginning to a goddamn powerhouse by the end. The chemistry between Molly and Alice is also fabulous and well worth showing up for. If you haven't read any of Cat Sebastian's other Turner books, you can still read this one. I haven't read them and I adored this.

    A Little Light Mischief is an f/f historical romance novella set in London in 1818. It follows two women as they fall in love and get revenge against the man who wronged one of them.It is part of a series, but I can tell you that you don't need to have read the previous books to understand it - I haven't, I don't know what they're about, and I had no problems with understanding the context. What I struggled more with was the writing style: English is my second language, and I often struggle with... more

    dnf @ 49%arc provided by publisher through EdelweissA classic it's not you it's me. I don't know how many histfic romances I've tried to read but I haven't finished a single one. I thought I'd give this a shot because a) sapphics and b) it's short (even though I dnf'd the seconds book of this series). This was just... boring. And the ratio of prose to dialogue was too much for my personal taste. People who like histfic would probably like it but it wasn't for me.

    A Little Light Mischief is a really wholesome sapphic Historical Romance that I would definitely recommend if this is something you're craving more of. “You've made me feel like I deserve good things. And you're the best thing of all.” While this is technically part of a series, you can definitely read this without having read anything else in this series. I was definitely a little bit confused in the beginning, simply because there were so many names that I didn't know and I was just miss... more

    ➽/> ★★★★☆ | Sexy and important! "You've made me feel like I deserve good things. And you're the best thing of all." ➽ SUMMARYA reformed thief and a penniless lady. What those two could possibly want from each other? They don't know either but they can't stop wanting it. And after some secrets are revealed and a certain unwanted man makes an appearance — there will be time for a little light mischief!➽ CHARACTERSAlice Stapleton — Alice had a busy life and now she has nothing but time for herself. And sometimes time to humour the Lady who took care of her and accompany her to parties. So, she spends her time trying to embodier tissues and not gawking at a certain maid, thank you very much. But what will happen if she is forced into her proximity? Molly Wilkins — Molly is not ashamed of her past of thieving and sleeping around for some nice bracelet that would keep her fed for weeks. However, now she's got a good job and wishes to live an honest life. She has a reason to. And this reason is why she must remember that seducing a proper Lady who is under the care of her employer is a bad idea. Well, bollocks.➽ RELATIONSHIPSDespite the differences in social position and character, Molly and Alice have enough in common to develop a deeper understanding and comradery so the undeniable sexual tension is not the only thing that brings them together. They have to work on their trust issues and share some of their secrets but in the end, they just seem to work together and work together. There is both: passion and understanding between them.➽ WHY IS THIS BOOK IMPORTANT??Both Molly and Alice experienced certain things that made their lives very difficult. Molly came from low and everything she owns she earned herself. She also has a person to provide for but she works so hard she barely sees them. Alice, turned away from her home, relies on the goodness of the Lady who took her in but has no perspectives of gaining any independence so she is constantly wary not to lose the roof over her head again. Seeing them learn to trust each other and stand on their feet, while under the care of another strong but complicated woman, is truly a wonderful experience. ___________________________blog | insta | twitter | booksirens | duolingo " data-summary="★★★★☆ | Sexy and important!

    I loved it but I want moooore! From a technical point of view the book is pretty much just as long as it's supposed to be but it was such a treat to see Alice come out of her shell and now I'm feeling a little bereft because we only got this short glimpse into her story. But damn, that author can write!Highly recommended!PS. Word of warning just so you can brace yourself - the book ends at 80% as the rest is previews for other books.

    The blurb doesn't do this little gem justice. It really doesn't do much for the two main characters, either, who are lovely separately, and even lovelier together. It makes Molly seem like a common thief, and Alice like a boring nobody. They are both much more three-dimensional than that, much more charming and likable, too. A Little Light Mischief is a return to form for Cat Sebastian. I haven't really enjoyed her last several published books as much as her previous ones; but also, it's literal... more

    It was okay -- but quite forgettable for me. Nothing made my heart all go gooey with the story. So Alice was the "meek" one and Molly was the strong one... and Alice was able to stand on her own after knowing Molly, and confronted the men who wronged her. The end.

    3.5 starsThese two would've deserved a full-length novel is all I'm saying… There was really a lot of character development for such a short novella, and I really loved watching Alice going from hiding in the shadows to fighting for what she wants. I just wish there'd be more space to see her shine. As for the rest of the cast, it was lovely seeing Molly as more than a side-character, I just wish there'd been more. I loved that this had a short scene with Jack and Oliver, I missed th 3.5 sta... more

    This was such a lovely, funny, sweet and tender historical romance novella, full of empowerment, humor and delight, and there were so many different lines I loved along the way. My favorite Cat Sebastian book so far, which is saying a lot! If you love adult historical romance, you should definitely try this one.

    On my blog. Rep: wlw mcsGalley provided by publisherTo be honest, I was put off this book on the first page when there was the following line: Alice didn’t know how she was supposed to concentrate on her sewing – or whatever it was she was meant to be doing – when there was an ample bosom or a pert backside within reach at all moments. That would be sexual harassment, Alice.The book then goes on to establish Alice as meek and not at all likely to be the kind of person who does that, so/>/>... more

    I've been very excited for this book ever since I first heard about it, and I dropped everything to blaze through it. It was a same-day audiobook release also, and I really enjoyed the performance of the narrator, Morag Sims, who was new to me. This book is about Molly Wilkins, a minor character from The Soldier's Scoundrel, falling in love with a young woman, Alice, who is alone in life for the first time. I would say it's more Alice's story, focused on her understanding her own value, but they... more

    Well written little historical fiction novella. Two very likable MC’s with fleshed out backgrounds and personalities. Which is impressive considering the short length of book. Ending felt a bit rushed, but really a minor quibble.

    I ADORE Cat Sebastian, but I was so bored reading this book. Nothing much happens for the first almost 2/3 of the book, just Molly and Alice watching each other. I get that it's supposed to be a slow burn, but I just didn't feel the tension. I almost DNF'd this just because I was so tired of sighing then picking it up and going "I suppose I'm this far, I should probably finish this." Thankfully the last third of the book picks up, once Alice and Molly finally get rolling with their relationship,... more

    “She pulled Molly a bit closer so the brims of their bonnets were nearly touching. “You’ve made me feel like I deserve good things. And you’re the best thing of all.”This quote really stuck with me, because of Alice’s feels inducing words yes, but also just the imagery of their heads bent together nearly touching but not quite because they were in public and appearances must be maintained and yet you still felt every single raw emotion that the women felt in that moment. Brava, Cat S... more

    DNF at the first third (end of chapter 3(out of a 9-chapter novella)).FTR, there isn't anything particularly bad about this story. The MCs (one who is a thief trying to live her life and the other a lady's companion) are nice. It's fairly obvious they're attracted to each other from the get go My issue is that there wasn't anything in the story that grabbed my attention. So the more I read, the more bored I got. Told from both MCs' POV in that classical and restrained way of most histor DNF at... more

    2.5 stars rounded to 3. Upsides: light and fluffy historical romance with two female leads, zero homophobia on the page, and a happy ending. Downsides: Alice is incoherently written (meek and shy, but also a secret badass!), the pacing is off, and I didn't especially feel the romance between the two leads. A full-length novel would've probably been better for the amount of story Sebastian wanted to tell here.

    Molly Wilkins, familiar from her bit part in the first Turner book, returns here as a lady’s maid to Mrs. Wroxhall, reformed from her life of petty crime. She’s thrown together with Alice, Mrs Wroxhall’s meek companion, and an undeniable attraction develops.This was...fine. It has all of Cat Sebastian’s trademark lightness, and Alice and Molly are sweet, but it’s very slight, both in terms of length and of plotting.
