At least Ally McBeal was mildly entertaining...

In the Barrister’s Chambers (Regency Barrister, #1)In the Barrister’s Chambers by Tina Gabrielle
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The premise was intriguing; a historical romance novel about lawyers written by a lawyer? Sounds awesome, right?

Don't judge a book by its blurb.
Sadly, the follow through was kind of a let-down. The female protagonist came across a little too die-away for my taste even though attempts were made to make her feisty. The hero was bland and the storyline a little too pat (c'mon, the brain tumour trope to explain away villainy? puhleese) for my taste.

Another hope to find a fun new author to read dashed on the rocks.
