Format: Paperback
This book is a wonderfully done regency novel. The author has obviously done her homework on the time period. I fell in love with Hartman's main characters and wanted the story to keep going after the last page was turned. The romance is heart pumping, yet clean. The story line is exciting with lots of twists and turns. All in all, a great book from a promising new author!

At the end of this disappointing book, there is a short biography of the author. It discloses that, after reading "How to Write a Fiction Novel in 30 days or less," the author "plunked out her first novel in less than a month." Indeed.
The plot is awful. The diction of the heroine is valley girl.
The grammar is terrible. The author does not even know how to form plurals in English. She also does not know the difference between disinterested and uninterested, as well as the appropriate word choice in many circumstances.
I am going to rethink my Bookbub.com subscription if the quality is this bad. Even free is too much.

It is so refreshing to read a romance without the graphic sex; one that focuses on the developing relationship and passion instead. The story line was entertaining, though a little predictable.

This book did what I like a book to do -- it kept my interest, made me smile several times, and I enjoyed the characters and their experiences.

Reading some of the negative reviews, I think I read an edited version. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Best romance ever. Clean with some great kisses. No spelled out porn. Has a great story -the chase, the catch, and obviously, the falling in love part between the characters. If I were an author I'd write like Ginny Hartman. Keep doing what you do. There's not much out there for the Christian woman. I find most stuff so detailed it is written porn. Or the other extreme of just being a story with very little romance. You have the essence of it. AWESOME.

I rarely give bad reviews because I think if you dislike a book it can be just a matter of taste. However, I think buyers deserve to hear another point of view since there are so many rave reviews for this particular book.

First, I think it was written for a young audience. The plot was unbelievable. I can't explain, with out giving away the very predictable ending....but really, two girls who look so much alike, are together a LOT and NO one noticed before!!!

I did not like the silly heroine or hero, I was thinking...how stupid can two people be! Apparently pretty stupid.

The book would have benefited from a thorough editing.

All of that sounds harsh, but, I will say, if you are a young reader, and enjoy historical romance it may be just the ticket.

If you are a reader of historical romance and enjoy the stories of say...Madeline Hunter, Julia Quinn, Julie Anne Long, then give it a pass. Or perhaps don't, read it and let me know what you think. Am I way to harsh?

I enjoyed this love story, I was rooting for the characters and was frustrated when they had hurtles to get over and was happy for them as they solved their problems. It started a bit bumpy but very quickly flowed into an enjoyable and easy read. To make it even better it has a sequel that continued the story and the author really grows as she continued writing, I will be watching for her 3rd book.

The good: I LOVED the two main characters, and their relationship. The author did a great job defining them and crafting their love story. I felt for hope and for him as the fell in love and as they hit the bumps. I also liked his friend, how he butted in at times.

The bad: The premise of no one noticing they were twins was beyond belief. If the author had set it up differently, if the two women had met on a ship or somewhere else and switched it would have been fine. As it was written, a ladies maid of several years, suddenly becoming an exact twin, it was just too much. Through out the story, there were parts where the author just didn't think things through, so she just threw things in to fix it. It did not always work.

Overall, it was ok. It was free. I wish she had not made the basis for the entire story so unbelievable. Not sure i would read this author again, it would depend on the premise and the cost.

I felt I had to review this book, because I read it based on the good reviews and I needed to provide an alternative opinion. The plot is unfortunately absurd. (I can overlook a cliched plot, if I really love the characters, but an absurd plot is almost impossible to overcome.) The author did some things rather well, not too many overly long descriptions and I did feel an interest in the main characters. It could have been a cute book, but one must be able to overlook the grammar and English errors, the inaccurate historical details, and the absurd plot.

The author doesn't seem to have a very firm grasp on the English language. You do not, for example, have a half drunken glass of something, unless the glass is animated and can, therefore, consume alcohol. A person's manor is their home, their manner is their style of behavior. A muse is someone or something that inspires another, to muss is to disorder. Reign is a period of rule for a sovereign, rein is the strap fastened to a horse's harness or a restraining influence. Who takes the place of the subject of a sentence, whom replaces the direct object. (If in doubt answer the question with either he or him, if it is him, the correct form is whom. For example, who put the glass on the table? He did, not him did, therefore, who is correct.) These mistakes and others were very present in this book.

The lack of commas was also very distracting. I had to re-read several sentences to figure out what the author was trying to say, a well placed comma would have eliminated this problem.

In addition to the grammar and English problems, this book had almost no historical accuracy. This may not be important to some people, but it is very important to others.
