Garrett's been waiting his entire life to avenge his mother. Were it not for Beatrice's father, his mother might have kept her dignity, might have made a fruitful life for herself and her young son, might have lived. And now that Beatrice is falling for his charms and begging for his help, he finally has his opportunity for revenge. If only Beatrice weren't so trusting and kind and selfless.
Judging Covers: As I've mentioned in previous reviews, I love me some historical romance, but more often that not, I pass up the genre based solely on the covers. All the swooning women who can't seem to keep their dresses up, the shampoo commercial guy keeping her from falling over as he sneaks a peek down her top while trying to look tough, apparently never realizing his own shirt is wide open and revealing his greasy chest… Yeah, I can do without all that. But just as Sweet Bea livened up the historical romance genre, it sports an atypical and altogether intriguing cover. I think I was half in love with the book before I even cracked the first page.
The Verdict: I actually put off reading this one for a little while because I'd recently gone through a string of less than stellar books, and I wasn't sure I wanted to dive into something as heavy as historical fiction, romance or not. And apparently because I'm an idiot.
Sweet Bea might just be the best historical romance I've ever read.Read more ›
Beatrice is the youngest of Sir Arthur’s daughters, a bit spoiled and headstrong in her wanting to do more for others, her naiveté can land her in some horrible situations. She feels ‘unremarkable’ in her family, but her good heart shines through any of the missteps she may make.
She learns of a situation that can bring ruin to her family, she decides she needs to head to London to warn them, and prevent the worst happening. Being a young woman of quality, and very much of her time, she cannot travel alone, and chooses Garret to help her achieve her goal.
Garret starts out deceptive and duplicitous, and it was such a contrast to the sweetness of Bea, with her kind and trusting heart, and a bit of a crush on him. He is solely bent on revenge:: Bea’s father holds Garret’s enmity for his mother’s dire life circumstances, turning to whoring to support her children. His revenge will be to ruin Bea’s reputation and life, forcing her into a life of prostitution using her own attraction to him as an easy starting point.
While Bea is completely unaware of Garret’s agenda, he is not expecting his own feelings for her to grow and develop in the presence of the sweet and gentle soul. While much of Garret’s own issues are rooted in venom and anger, Bea sees the man behind that anger, and chooses to speak to that man, and I will admit that Garret’s growth and gradual release of his anger was noticeable, even if I couldn’t completely revise my opinion of him.Read more ›
Garrett - okay his name first of all. And he's such a jerk, but he's not. Which is hard to explain but easy too. He doesn't want to be a good guy, he wants his revenge, dammit, but all the way through the book, guise, he's a GOOD GUY. And it pisses him off.
Side characters that will leave you with a bigger heart than you arrived with:
Ivy - the whore (and I hate this word but it's what was used back in the day, what are you gonna do?) with a heart.
Newt - the thief with his own agenda, and maybe a crush on Bea. I'm not sure.
Tom - the best friend with intentions that are better than his temper at times.
Bea's brothers - omg, these guys. I want these brothers. For the most part.
Uncle Godfrey. hmph.
There were moments I swooned, moments my heart ached but what makes me so happy is the humor that Sarah laced into this story. I laughed out loud so many times throughout this story just from the situation comedy Sarah puts her characters into. The action scenes . . . and there were plenty . . . were flawlessly executed. I love me some action. And Sarah caries them out fluidly. I could see everything that was going on inside my head. And um, again, Garrett . . . SWOON.

Beatrice is fun character!a bit scattered Nd impulsive, but I loved the flaws in her. So many heroines are written as these dainty, dependent, perfect women. But not Bea! Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
