Editorial Reviews


-- A USA Today Bestseller --

"[Matthews] once again highlights the injustices of rigid class structures in Victorian England, this time matching a hero of dubious character and a worthy, resourceful heroine. Readers who enjoy their historicals set in the country- or seaside and France or England will be in for a treat." -Library Journal

"Matthews' storytelling skills remain rock-solid, and she spins a lovely romantic tale...As always, the background historical details are impeccably researched; in particular, Laura's trip to the seaside at Margate provides readers with a captivating glimpse into Victorian culture...A well-crafted historical romance, built on a marriage of convenience." -Kirkus Reviews

"A Convenient Fiction beautifully mixes Georgette Heyer with Victoria Holt. Part gothic romance, part family story with a tiny sprinkling of humor thrown in, it's a lovely, spooky heartbreaker of a novel that sinks its claws right into you, then kisses the wound it leaves behind." -All About Romance (Desert Isle Keeper)

"Readers who appreciate character-driven, slow-burn romance, flawed heroes, and a firm sense of time and place will enjoy this one...I'm looking forward to any future books in this series, with the fourth orphan slated to get his story in the next year." -Smart Bitches Trashy Books

"It seems that I say each book that Mimi Matthews pens is her best writing, but it appears to be true. She just gets better, and is rapidly becoming one of my very favorite authors. A CONVENIENT FICTION is a top favorite of books I've read this year, and I heartily give it my highest recommendation." -The Romance Reviews, top pick

"A truly beautiful story of second chances, of moving from your past and embracing the future, it will enchant you from the moment you open the first page." -Chicks, Rogues and Scandals

"Mimi Matthews does it again--A CONVENIENT FICTION is utterly engrossing with characters I love. Her books are classics and remind me of Georgette Heyer and Mary Balogh...simply wonderful." -Jane Porter, New York Times bestselling author

"A sumptuous and instantly readable addition to what has become one of my favourite series...Brimming with intelligence and pitch-perfect dialogue..I cannot wait to return to Devon again. Nor to Matthews' inimitable magic -- she owns this period!" -Rachel McMillan, author of The London Restoration

"I love Mimi's work and this has to be my favourite so far. Her characters are multi-dimensional, truly likeable, memorable, and have great chemistry. Dropped into situations that don't feel forced or unlikely, you can't help but cheer for them to get their happy ending." -Jayne Fresina, author of Once Upon a Kiss
