Review for My Lady Below Stairs by Mia Marlowe

It is extremely difficult to write a satisfying novella. Some authors are able to "capture the magic" with 50,000 words or less, and some aren't. Marlowe totally nails it. This story has all the things I love about her longer historicals...it's beautifully written, has lusty love scenes, wonderful humor, and a very satisfying ending.

The best thing about this story is all of the unexpected surprises. Giovanni, the impassioned artist, is not who he seems. Sybil, the spoiled daughter, is not as shallow as we think. Ian, the head groom, is more clever, determined and madly in love than we could imagine. Marlowe weaves a multitude of threads together in this story, and as the threads come together, you know that you're in for a wonderful surprise. I LOVE stories that weave together a bunch of different POVs. Usually, you can figure out what's about to happen far in advance. But Mia Marlowe really surprised me at the end with all of the revelations about the characters. I adored the final scene in the library, written with all of the wit and humor that is characteristic of this author. It borders on a historical farce, which is one of my favorite things!

This story is truly like an unexpected Christmas gift...I opened the package having no expectations, and I found a real treasure. Thank you, Mia, for this sweet Christmas story.

I read this novella before it came out as an ebook, and encourage all romance readers to take advantage of this bargain way to read Mia Marlowe (especially if you haven't sampled her historical romances before). Her signature humor, great alpha heroes, spunky and interesting heroines, and intriguing plot twists are all here, even in a shorter format. I expect more of her books to come out as ebooks, so keep a lookout, and prepare to enjoy some grand reads.

This novella was underdeveloped, pointless, boring, and frankly stupid. It did not flow well and was poorly written in my opinion. Wish I hadn't spent my money or time on this. Very, very shallow.

Too much going on and too many side stories for a short read. I just never got caught up in it.
If you read this & don't like it, don't give up on the author without trying "How to Please A Pirate". It has a much better story. Love scenes are more detailed, so make sure you're OK with that.

Yes, another novella. Today's selection is My Lady Below Stairs by Mia Marlowe. First off if you are a fan of Shakespeare's comedies you might enjoy this quick read. However, if you are not of fan of Mr. Shakespeare you might want to steer clear. I personally prefer his comedies over the tragedy, so I found this story enjoyable.

The main characters you need to keep tract of during the story are:

Jane Tate: Half-sister of Lady Sybil; bastard child of Lord Somerville; scullery maid
Ian Michael MacGarrett: Head groom; loves Jane
Lady Sybil Somerville: Daughter of Lord Somerville; has no desire to marry Viscount Eddleton; loves the artist
Viscount Eddleton: Ick; Weasel
Giovanni Brunello: artist; loves Sybil

So, if you can keep tract of these characters, you should be fine. Yes, it is a bit far-fetch. However, if you have seen A Midsummer Night's Dream or Much Ado About Nothing then the story isn't so far-fetch. If you are looking for a Shakespeare-like comedy, you might want to checkout My Lady Below Stairs.

This was a sweet love story and we kind of walk into it as it's already happening which was different. The two main characters are already in love but neither is ready to make a move until they realize how close they are to losing one another. This is one of Mia Marlowe's older writings and it had some of her charm but I prefer her w,iring now as it feels more like her.

Ms. Marlowe has done it again with this short tale that was super funny, lovable and left me with a huge smile on my face!

I absolutley adored Ian, WHAT a fantastic sexy hero! Jane was great as well as the many secondary charachter's that kept me LOL and waiting to see what they were going to do next. Great read!

Quick read and relatively trite mixed identity theme. I did like that the H and h were not lords and ladies so it gave the story a more relatable feel than the plot would normally have allowed. Too short to really get to know anyone but diverting enough if someone loans it to you.
