Alyssa Drake brings it with her re-release of A Perfect Plan!!
An opinionated tomboy must navigate the dangers of society, unaware her brother’s killer is lurking in her midst.
When her brother’s ship sinks off the coast of France, Miss Samantha Hastings surrenders her quiet, country life to manage his affairs. Suddenly thrust into society, Samantha faces an unfamiliar world and the unnerving green eyes of Lord Westwood-her brother’s best friend and her new guardian.
Benjamin, Lord Westwood, never intended on following through with his rash promise to act as guardian to Edward’s bratty little sister. Upon learning of his best friend’s death, Benjamin’s intention was to marry her off to the first acceptable suitor. When he finds himself falling for Samantha instead, Benjamin alights upon the perfect plan; a marriage of convenience.
The plan, however, quickly unravels when they discover Edward’s disappearance was due to foul play. Now, Samantha is in more danger than either of them realized and Benjamin is running out of time. Can he save the woman he loves or will murder ruin his perfect plan?

Fly Girl’s Review:
I want to give a great big shout out to Alyssa, because this was great for a first novel. I know you all are saying, but you’ve reviewed her work before. Well, this is a re-release of her first novel, which contains a great amount of editing and a new cover. So here is my first impression of the book. I can’t believe how addictive it was. The only problem I had was the end, I wanted it to keep going…No cliff hanger, just keep going!!
Ok, so that was the bad part. The rest was good. She was witty, her characters were strong, the relationship was built properly and the mystery had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. This was a quick read, maybe 4-5 hours and has some sex and violence in it so for mature readers. Sometimes first novels tend to have a bit of awkwardness to them that gets worked out as they continue to write. Alyssa Drake had none of that in this novel. She is very talented.
I did have a pretty good idea who it was about half way through, but I still wanted to see how it turned out because the culprit in my mind still didn’t fit the picture in my head. There were some really funny parts also, like when Samantha is in the tree and he climbs up just to reassure her. And stepping on the partners toes on the dance floor. Or the bickering between Benjamin and his brother.
The suspense is killing me, I simply can’t wait until the next one comes out. Alyssa, I hope you are listening because this “Fly Girl” is interested in more of your work. So for all of that, you really should check her book out.
