Extremely satisfying!

This book was such a pleasant surprise to a reader getting tired of the 'same old thing' with regency romances. I didn't want porn... I wanted a story that could capture my imagination, wouldn't butcher the time period, and had characters you could believe actually fell in love. This was the book to fit all of those criteria! Donaldson created such a wonderful world to escape into with excellent character development and storyline. This is a very well written book that you will find yourself falling in love with! I started re-reading passages immediately after finishing the book because I did not want to leave the story.

Anticipating her next book greatly!

Donaldson writes in a commentary at the end of her book that Georgette Heyer was one of her influences. I adore Heyer's books and Edenbrooke had a very similar feel with the exceptions that it moves a lot quicker and there is more of a love story in Edenbrooke than Heyer put into her longer novels (something I always wished for more of). As stated above, you really feel like these characters could realistically fall in love.

The hero wears his heart on his sleeve while still being masculine and the heroine is daring and unconventional while still being true to the era and social constraints on a female.

Highly recommend this book (one you will want on your shelf and your Kindle)!

From the moment I began reading Edenbrooke (which was originally lent to me by a neighbor and since purchased for my own collection) I could NOT put it down. I am a huge fan of all things Jane Austen, and I must admit I was sceptical about reading something that I suspected would have too many 21st century ideas mixed into it, or worse, too many barrowed Austen themes. However, I was happily surprised to find that Donaldson did an incredible job of bringing to life every detail of what I love about the Regency period...all while making it identifiable to us in this modern age. Donaldson's language is a bit easier to follow than Austen's books, but without losing the authenticity of the period. And Edenbrooke is a story all in it's own. An original. I was absolutely transported back in time and felt like I was living every moment with Marianne, as if I was right there in the room with her on each page. I felt her every heartbreak and all of her anguish, and also all of her joy and happiness. Her character is so relatable to the "normal" woman with self doubt and insecurities. And even now, after finishing the book two weeks ago, I find that Phillip creeps into my thoughts and I have fallen in love with his character!! This is a MUST READ for any romantic!

My daughter and I both started this book today on Kindle and it was a race to the finish. We both love Regency era novels and found this one delightful. As a mother of a teenager, I loved that she and I could read a book together that portrayed appropriate love. It was fun to listen to her giggle at parts as we sat next to each other to read. A wonderful debut for Ms. Julianne.

This book was so good! I enjoyed every page in one day, I just couldn't put it down. Normally not one to enjoy, or even read, regency era books I was pleasantly surprised by how I was drawn in by the first page through to the end. Great debut book and I'm looking forward to reading more from her. Read this.....and twirl if you will.

Any fan of Jane Austen will surely love this debut by Julianne Donaldson. I read Edenbrooke in one sitting ( a first for me this year) because it was so good. It's a very sweet tale that will appeal not only to teens but adults as well. I can see Julianne having a great future in the romance genre, specifically historical romance. She's an author to watch, and her writing is very refreshing. Edenbrooke will give you that warm fuzzy feeling in the pit of your stomach, and when you finish, you'll be craving more.

The heroine, Marianne Deventry is staying with her grandmother in Bath, England. Marianne is bored silly. She misses her father and her charming and beautiful twin sister, Cecily. Marianne has been in Bath for fourteen months, ever since her mother died. Her father left Marianna with her grandmother while he went off to France to grieve. Cecily has been with their cousin Edith in London, enjoying the social scene there. Marianne is very different from her sister. She likes to read and paint. She also had this adorable and childish habit of twirling when she's happy. But Marianne hasn't had much to twirl about. She misses her father and wants to go home but can't. She feels rejected and alone. But then word comes from Cecily, inviting her to come stay with Cecily's dear friend Louisa at her family estate of Edenbrooke. Marianne is thrilled because she'll see Cecily again and meet Louisa's older brother who Cecily plans on marrying.

Marianne expects a wonderful adventure, but she gets more than she bargains for when a highway man tries to rob her carriage. He gets away and almost ends up killing her driver. Marianne finds a local inn and asks for help. Whom she first comes in contact at first is incredibly rude.
