If you want a light, sweet, clean Regency, then this is a good book for you. If you want wit, excitement and adventure, I'd go with something else.
I enjoyed this story very much. It did lack somewhat but no bad. I found some errors but nothing that took away from the story. The story line was easy to follow. The story had intrigue, suspense, murder, and romance. The author drew the reader in and allowed us to feel the emotions of her characters while they struggle with their feelings. This is for anyone who enjoys all of the above. A romantic, the story has no over descriptive sexual parts, just sweet embraces and kisses. The author lets us imagine what is to come. Enjoy!
(1) The hero and heroine were boring, boring, boring. They didn't seem that way in the sample, but they ended up being cardboard people with nothing to make them original and bring them to life. They didn't do or say a single thing that was unpredictable or interesting after the stagecoach robbery.
(2) People in the book behaved in ways that were not condoned during the Regency period. For example, the heroine's sister's former "boyfriend" hugged the heroine in public. NOT DONE! There are other examples of this kind of thing, but I don't want to take the time to list them all.
(3) The author spent too much time describing the way rooms were furnished, the way houses looked, the way the women were dressed, the sister's wedding and all the events surrounding it, etc. Entirely too much superfluous description that added nothing to the story...and some of it was not correct for the period either.
(4) The main characters spent too much time ruminating and not enough time talking. Furthermore, the dialogue was very boring and predictable. There was no wit or sparkle in the dialogue.
(5) The mystery wasn't much of a mystery. Seriously, I don't read mysteries entirely for the whodunit factor...for example, I love Alexander McCall Smith's Number One Ladies Detective Agency series...but the "mystery" in this book was entirely too predictable.
(6) This is just a pet peeve...but I hated that the heroine's friend Lydia and her husband lived at Godmersham Park. That's a real place, the home of Jane Austen's brother, and it really bugged me that she used that name.
All together, a waste of my time and money to have read this. Sorry I did.
Quite frankly, you can't get much better for the price. Highly recommended!
