    1. Not as good as the first in the series, but still a solid entry. Lots of flirtation, but I just didn't get as much chemistry between the couple as the couple in the first book. Also, there is a dark subplot that seemed a little dark for some chick lit like this.


    2. Oh dear. I can see I'm going to be in the minority here. Midsummer's night romp - I liked the sound of because it involved archeology. I've written a romantic comedy about that so -- keen to see what Katie did. I did like it better than The Importance of being Alice but I still struggled with the strained dialogue that didn't sound funny, just odd and characters that were just too over the top. And I struggled even more with the very serious aspect - not giving anything away by saying it was HIV [...]


    3. Katie MacAlister is my go-to when I want a delightfully fun, light and quirky romance that'll make me smile and just lift my spirits. And A Midsummer Night's Romp delivered on all fronts as an archaeological dig at a castle bring together an English photographer who lives there and an American French teacher who is set on avenging her best friend against one of the men at the dig site. Zany insanity ensues! >>>Quirky, quirky, quirky! One of the things I love about McAlister is she's got [...]


    4. In the second book in Katie MacAlister's newest series "A Matchmaker In Wonderland" comes "A Midsummer Night's Romp". This book delighted me from cover to cover. As a long time fan of Katie's work,I thought I had an idea of what was to come but she surprised me. "Midsummer" starts seriously with a friend in trouble, revenge, and an unexpected job but the plot twists and the heroine finds herself involved in a startling intrigueand finds romance. Will Lorina complete her mission? Are her feelings [...]


    5. Katie MacAlister's novels are always full of banter, quirky characters and usually at least one of the main characters suffers from word-vomiting (aka. blurting out whatever comes at their mind).Sadly, for some unknown reason, A Midsummer Night's Romp just didn't work out for me. All the things I mentioned before were there, but I didn't find it funny or cute. Finishing this book was a struggle, since I was bored most of the time.I hope this was one-time-miss and that I didn't loose one of my fa [...]


    6. Original Post May 19, 2015A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S ROMP: ONE Big Mistake But No Disaster! fangswandsandfairydust/201.right 2015 Stephanie Takes-DesbiensA couple of mainstream-published authors I know have said that the publishing houses rarely fact-check or do much continuity editing. This would account for the several major errors I have found in mainstream published books. I speak of major errors: when a plot hinges on something and it changes (like a murder is solved by someone seeing something, [...]


    7. I think this book was just alright. I didn't dislike it nor did I like it. The story revolves around Lorina and Gunner. Lorina travelled to England to confront Paul, a man who infected her close friend with HIV. When he was told about it, he dismissed it as an act of a spurned lover. She volunteered at a dig site, taking place at Ainslie castle, in order to get close to him. However, it is complicated by her blatant interest to Gunner, a photographer and the brother of the castle's baron. The bo [...]


    8. Gunner Ainslie is looking forward to spending time with his daughter, while helping excavate part of Ainslie castle for roman remains. Dig Britain will be there filming the dig and any artifacts found. With his knowledge of archaeology, the film director decided Gunner would be a good person to explain the dig process to the viewers at home and to teach Lorina, a dig newbie, how to dig. Lorina is a woman on a mission and she won’t let anything get in the way of it. Posing as a photo journalist [...]


    9. A Midsummer Night’s RompKatie MacAlister writes paranormal, historical and contemporary romance books. Through all her books, there are heroes, heroines, wit, charm and a bit of danger. This is book 2 in Katie’s new series, A Matchmaker in Wonderland. A Midsummer Night’s Romp is the second book of the Ainslie Brothers.French professor Lorina and Sandy are roommates. Sandy goes on archaeological digs. Paul, an archaeologist, infects her with HIV. Lorina is on a mission to expose him. She fi [...]


    10. There is something to say when you can pick up a book and find yourself actually feeling like you are right there in the book. That is why I so enjoy Katie’s books. The latest book A Midsummer Romp had me glued to the pages The scene of the tent episode had me laughing until I had tears running down my cheeks. It was like I was outside the tent watching everything unfold. Of course Alice and Elliott opening up the bolthole on Lorina and Gunner had me roaring in laughter. My hubby said what in [...]


    11. While this didn't have me laughing from the first page to the last. It was hilarious! One of my favorite parts was when she finally broke down and told him why she was really there and his only response was "Can I help?". This book doesn't quite start off with a bang but it picks up real quick. I've always loved Katie MacAlister's books. They have always managed to make me smile and laugh. Even when I'm having the worst day. This book is definitely worth the money and time!


    12. Thank you for giving me a chance to read this book. It's a first reads. I wanted to read this book because I have a niece who's going for her Masters and likes to dig in the dirt. So I thought maybe I could learn something. Not only that but I thought it would be a good read. I was correct!!! The book started out a little slow but the further I got into it the more the story developed and the more I wanted to keep reading. I would recommend reading this book.


    13. Who am I kidding I haven't picked this up in a month and a half. I need to stop hogging it from the library and let someone else read it. **DNF so no rating


    14. I read Perils of Pauline, then went back and binged the whole Matchmaker in Wonderland series to date. They're that good!In this installment, Lorina is actually on a secret mission to get revenge or at least stop a sexual predator. What have might been an unconvincing romantic interlude given her history of abuse is pulled off with aplomb by the male lead, Gunner. MacAlister creates a male character with depth and personality, a noteworthy accomplishment in the world of romance, and promptly plu [...]


    15. Diggin' the connectionHumorous lack of mental & emotional filters for both Lorina & Gunnar.Non photojournalist, nonarchaeologist female with fierce dedication to her best friend in a time of needShe finds a man who won't be a nightmare for life with a unique family and an appreciation for archaeology


    16. Another lead character I took way too long to relate to. (view spoiler)[ Well, I could relate until she suddenly finds moral issues with the plan she travelled 1/3rd of the way around the earth to implement. WTFO? (hide spoiler)] Anyway it was meh.


    17. The way that Lorina Liddell and Gunner Ainslie interacted and reacted to each other was fun to read. I did not enjoy this story as much as I have liked the other stories in Katie MacAlister's "A Matchmaker in Wonderland Romances" series.


    18. Another great Katie MacAlister book. Good charachters and a good flowing story. She has the best banter in the world, her and Dakota Cassidy have a way of talk between two people.



    19. Ugh! There was nothing at all to hold my interest. And I LOVE Katie MacAlister. But this book was just plain old boring. It feels like it was written just to fulfill a contract.

    24. 3.5 Quirky Fun Stars! Source: eARC for Honest Review Courtesy of Penguin Group It's always a joy to read a Katie MacAlister book. They're always so quirky, witty and fun no matter the genre. Most of the characters suffer from no filter rich results in very off-the-wall verbal diarrhea. Gunner Ainslie is probably closest to his brother the baron Elliot. Elliot was the bumbling older brother who is in charge of the castle where Gunner is the free spirit womanizer. After seeing Elliot settle down h [...]


    25. And the good books continue. Gunner picks up where Elliot left. Finds Lorina who becomes his bride after they both are drugged at a dig at Ainslie Castle looking for possible treasure. Delightful story with the usual bits of wry humor that I love so much from MacAlister.


    26. I had such great fun with The Importance of Being Alice, the first book in the Ainslie Brother's series I totally wanted to read this one. This book picks shortly after the events in the last book except this time, the book focuses on Gunner, whom we met briefly in book 1.Gunner is a forensic photographer of old buildings, but also has a degree in archeology. With Dig Britain!, a reality tv show, coming to film archaeologists dig up and study the grounds around Ainslie Castle, Gunner is put in c [...]


    27. A lady called Lorina who teaches French in an American community college, decides on an unusual summer's work. She'll go to England where a castle grounds is undergoing an archaeological dig, which will be televised. Why? Well it's personal. Second in the 'Ainslie Brothers' series, the entertaining A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S ROMP tackles some tough issues. Lorina's best friend Sandy was infected with the dreaded HIV virus by a self-centred ex called Paul. While Sandy is undergoing treatment on a retrea [...]


    28. I found A Midsummer's Night Romp to be:FunnyCuteI READ A MIDSUMMER'S NIGHT ROMP IMMEDIATELY UPON FINISHING THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ALICE.And I loved it just as much as book one. I adored Gunner in the first book. He was very much a free spirit and a flirt, so I easy understood his character early on. But he had a few surprises waiting for the reader to discover. The first of which totally tripped me up and completely changed how I thought the book was going to go.I liked Lorina. If someone commi [...]


    29. **SPOILERS ** It didn't occur to me the book was written in the first person till the 2nd or 3rd chapter but I try not to let it bother me. For the most part it did not but now that I have finished the book I think that could be one of the reasons I could not get into the book. it could be because everything is in first person and thus Lorina the heroine is in almost every scene and everything had to be told to her for the story to move along from her POV.I never had an issue with first person P [...]
