Editorial Reviews



  • "The Dickens with Love is engaging, tender, and irresistibly sexy.  It also has an extra dash of forgiveness and the joy of new beginnings, making this novel a holiday treat that can and should be enjoyed all year long.  Like the Stardust martinis James and Sedgwick so enjoy, The Dickens with Love simply sparkles."  ~ Joyfully Reviewed
  • "Josh Lanyon’s witty and well-paced narrative The Dickens with Love is a story of love, redemption and holiday spirit that will entertain and charm its readers. This is a Christmas story about a Christmas story; it is clever, well-written, and frequently humorous, and it captures the many facets of the holiday season." ~ BookWenches
  • "The Dickens with Love is equal parts romance and mystery. It’s a Christmas story, but it’s more than mistletoe and brown paper packages tied up with string. It’s not a straight forward romance. There are many fascinating layers to it, beginning with a mysterious book and ending with a lovely romance. Charles Dickens' work adds a touch of magic and whimsy. Josh Lanyon is one of my favorite authors and The Dickens with Love is one of my favorite things this Christmas." ~ Rainbow Reviews
  • "This story is a typically wonderful Mitchell book and a quick and heart-warming holiday offering. I recommend it heartily." ~  Dear Author, A Recommended Read for December
  • "If you enjoy a regency with a strong flavour of the time, well-researched history that layers itself onto the page without you even noticing it’s there and a protagonists that you will be crossing your fingers for–hoping that they will get their well-deserved happiness, then you are going to love this." ~ 5 stars ---Speak Its Name
  • "K.A. Mitchell has crafted an appealing and engrossing story in a time when love between men could have meant the death penalty, should their passion for one another be discovered. The story is rich in dialogue and atmosphere, ...with great attention to detail, fashions and fads, of the period." ~  5 stars Rainbow Reviews

The Dickens With Love by Josh Lanyon

The Dickens With Love is a Christmas story that proves that also a library mouse can fall in love, and surprise surprise, for another mouse too! Yes, since the classical Cinderfella story, mixed with Christmas feelings, would suggest that our hero is being rescued from a cold and lonely Christmas day by a knight in shining armour, and instead, of shining, the other hero has only the horn-rimmed glasses.

James Winter is a book hunter, better he was a very good book hunter before losing his credibility when the antiquarian he was working for was found out with the hand in the jam, meaning that he was selling fake rare books. Just from that you have probably understood that James is not exactly Indiana Jones, the biggest adventures he probably had in his life was to find a rare book in the attic of some old lady, but James loves books and for him, even that was a fantastic adventure. Now he is deprived of all of that, he is forced to work in a department store selling cheap books to even cheaper buyers and he is dying inside. When an unscrupulous man asks him to deal in his name for a unpublished manuscript by Charles Dickens, even if James doesn't like the man, the chance is too great to renounce.

The owner of the rare book, Sedgwick Crisparkle is an English professor who has some hidden reasons to auction the book far from England and in a as much as possible anonymous way. There is a bit of mystery here, probably Josh Lanyon is not able to write a novel without a bit of mystery, but actually it's a really old fashioned and sweet mystery, very much in line with the entire story.

Anyway when James meets Sedge, the real reason behind the meeting is soon forgotten, and they are swept away in a whirlwind romance...

This book was very very good. K.A. Mitchell and Josh Lanyon did exceptional work: An Improper Holiday is a period piece, finely tuned, very convincing and fun; The Dickens with Love is outstanding--as usual I'm finding with Josh Lanyon. I am a firmly placed fan, there is no longer doubt. Quality reading, good stories, well done characterizations. These two authors deserve kudos and my many thanks for the joy of reading their work. Permanent places in my library!
