Editorial Reviews

Review

Miss Delacourt Has Her Day is a good novel that contains characters from a previous story...Ms. Ashworth's writing style has a Jane Austen feel about it. I really liked how the moral of the story was encased throughout the pages¦This is a steady historical romance that has spots of witticism, adventure, and two people who are willing to change for the ones they love. --Coffee Time Romance & More

MISS DELACOURT HAS HER DAY is truly an old-style Regency romance with all the things we enjoyed about them years ago. This story is the sequel to MISS DELACOURT SPEAKS HER MIND (December 2008) and takes up after Anthony and Ginny have met and fallen in love. Take a journey back to early English life and once again revel in a true historical romance this month - you'll love it. --Carolyn Crisher, Romance Reviews Today

About the Author

Heidi Ashworth is a busy wife and mother who's grateful for a bit of peace and quiet in which to write. An unapologetic anglophile, she is determined to return to England to see the home of Jane Austen, a landmark she missed during her first trip across the pond, though she knows Lord Byron's house to be a suitable substitute. She's smitten with books, chocolate, and roses, not necessarily in that order, and is never averse to a round of Guitar Hero.
Miss Delacourt Has Her Day is Heidi's second novel. Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind is also available.

More About the Author

Heidi Ashworth, best-selling, award-winning author of traditional regency romance, lives in the San Francisco bay area, but she lost her heart across the pond when she was very young. She read her first regency romance when she was four years old (just a few words, but it was enough). The first one she wrote took place in Paris circa 1974 but such gaffes are mere trifles when you are only ten. Since then she has sharpened her skills and garnered a few accolades; Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind hit the number one spot on several of Amazon's regency romance lists in both the U.S. and England, while its sequel earned a finalist position in the Whitney Awards (both are available via Montlake Romance)while her anthology, The Lord Who Sneered and Other Tales, was a finalist in the 2014 Rone Awards. Her novella, It Happened Twelfth Night, is one of six short stories in the first volume of the award-winning, best-selling series, A Timeless Romance Anthology, via Mirror Press, and the third book in her Miss Delacourt series, Lord Haversham Takes Command, will appear in a box set entitled "Every Hope: A Triple Treat Romance", in December 2014, also via Mirror Press. Her latest in the Miss Delacourt series, Miss Armistead Makes Her Choice, garnered a 4.5 star Crowned Heart review from InD'tale Magazine.

I realize that reading romance novels is not the type of thing your typical man does. However, this book (the sequel to Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind) was a true pleasure to read. This is not your typical romance trashy novel, but a fine and charming story of what some will do for love. As with the first book, the characters are three dimensional and full of life. You can almost see characteristics of people you know in each of the characters, and this makes the whole story more intimate and personal. I heartily recommend this to anyone who wants to just sit down, enjoy a good read, and be whisked off to another time and place for a bit.

I was so excited when I heard a sequel was going to be published. I loved the characters in the first Miss Delacourt and this sequel does not disappoint. The same great characters from the first one with the great humor and a few surprises! A must read!

A few years ago I read Heidi Ashworth's regency romance 'Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind' and fell in love with the two main characters, Ginny Delacourt and Sir Anthony. I had honestly thought Ashworth had set the book up for a possible sequel, and made mention of this in a comment on her blog, only to learn that was not the case. But Heidi was intrigued by the idea and set to work on what is now affectionately known as MD2 (for Miss Delacout 2). Well, finally, that dream has come to fruition and 'Miss Delacourt Has Her Day' has arrived. I just had to order a copy to read right away and am now here to share.

So what did I think? Once again, I loved the main characters. What was impressive was that Ashworth gave greater depth to Ginny and Sir Anthony through the use of new situations and circumstances. I was clearly able to see growth and change in both of them. The continued use of foil characters Lucinda and Lord Avery were also an added bonus for the humorous themes of the book.

I also enjoyed the creative plot elements in 'Miss Delacourt Has Her Day.' Sir Anthony has some fun challenges to overcome in order to be able to wed his lovely Ginny--these led to plenty of laughs and even a bit of suspense. The slight plot twist involving one character with whom I share a name (Rebecca) was a nice curveball thrown in by Heidi.

All in all, I just love Heidi's style of writing. She has an intellectual quality in her use of words that I envy. And her ability to be witty and humorous (just check out the dialogue alone!) is on par with (if not better than) Sarah Eden's work.

Synopsis:
Ginny Delacourt felt the course of true love could not have run smoother.

Parson's daughter Miss Delacourt is flustered when her handsome fiancee unexpectedly becomes next in line to inherit a grand estate, for she realizes that her future with him will become more complicated as she will be expected to bear the high society duties of a duchess. On his side pressures are brought to bear as he is harried by reminders of her low social status. Will she rise to meet his expectations-- and will he stay true even under the burden of family harassment?

A charming story reminiscent of the styles of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer. Humorous lines abound, with dialogue from the bubble-headed character Lucinda being particularly noteworthy. The main characters are enjoyable and easy to relate to, though I would have liked them to react slightly differently in these circumstances. It was refreshing to find a love story that did not descend to the bedroom, and I appreciated seeing that the heroine's virtue was a quality admired by the hero.

Overall, well worth the time, and I will be looking up further works by this author!

I enjoyed the first story, and this sequel was just as fun and light hearted with the usual happy ending.

In general, I'm against sequels in romance. Most characters just do not have the oomph to make it through a sequel credibly. Miss Delacourt and Sir Anthony do. Grandaunt Regina and Lucinda do. Miss Delacourt Has Her Day maintains the Ashworth sparkle without taking itself too seriously. It's filled with fun and romance and longing and doubts and clothes and banter and obnoxious relatives and sweet resolution. I love this book.

The course of true love never runs smoothly. Someone is always misunderstanding somone else. Of course, if you have friends like Lucinda and Lord Avery, they can be very tiresome too.

This was my first Miss Delacourt novel. After reading it, I had to read Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind, the first in the series.
