As an example, when reading the Welsh doctor's lines, all I could think about was Ms. Dunn speaking the lines and writing the same way it sounded to herself. Same for the Cockney character. My British nana could talk Cockney and she never sounded like that character.
This is not the only book I have seen Ms. Dunn do this and it keeps me from enjoying her books. So ... please, I implore, stop it. Thank you.
The book is long, but not in a bad way at all. My WiFi isn't working properly right now and I wasn't able to use WiFi to get the book on my Kindle, and Amazon wouldn't let me use 3G on my Kindle due to the length. But I was able to get it on my Android phone. The book took me a week rather than the usual approximately 4 days for a shorter Regency.
The book shows Hester's family (her 5 siblings that she is raising), and I adored them all. I was able to love both the hero (David) and the heroine (Hester). I'm hoping Carola Dunn has written Regencies for Hester's siblings, but I haven't investigated that. Enjoy this book!!!!!!!!
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.
