Great Regency read
on June 25, 2013
Is this book similar to Frederica by Georgette Heyer (a book I have read numerous time)? yes
Does this book share some similarities with Dunn's own Ginnie Come Lately? yes
Do very many Regency genre books break new ground these days without simply adding a lot of sex? no
Is this book a great read for Regency fans? YES, YES, YES!
While obviously there, the similarities to Frederica were balanced by many differences. It is an engaging book, well written with fun characters. It is probably one of my favorite Carola Dunn novels. I have alread read it a few times. (Another I really enjoy is, coincidentally, Ginnie Come Lately.) I do agree with the previous comment on the "cousin". That part annoys me and I think it could have been dealt with better, but it's a minor complaint. Read this book. The 1 star review is dead wrong.
