Well written and crafted with care. The story line is engaging and the characters real. Jane Ashford incorporate all the real style of the Regency period including language.
I liked Flora and Robert. They had excellent chemistry and their banter was feisty and intelligent. Sadly, we didn't get a lot of scenes with the two of them together and that's where I started to get bored. There are sooooooo many characters in this story and most of them were bland. Flora and Robert definitely stand out. I'm not sure what was going on with the dog...
Plot wise, I was expecting a lot of threads to follow, yet there weren't that many. It seemed like certain characters were given small scenes to add depth; for me, it just added confusion. The conflict was boring and also felt forced, especially at the ending scene.
Overall, I liked the premise, but struggled with the execution. I doubt I'll be reading any other books in the series.
