    Very pleased with how this book went similar to Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, but with its own style and humor as well The characters are well drawn and realistic and there s plenty of surprises all the way.

    What can I say It is Jude Morgan s Regency romance If you know and like Indiscretion my review or An Accomplished Woman my review you will like it too.The novel is witty, amusing, enjoyable There are plenty funny sentence and dialogues like in the above mentioned books and in Georgette Heyer s Regency romances Miss Rose in this demonstrating the peculiar talent of those who proclaim their absence of self esteem for getting a lot of attention by pretending they never get any I think there i What can I say It is Jude Morgan s ...

    I spent the first several chapters of this book thinking What s the point of reading this when I could be reading Jane Austen Then something clicked Perhaps it was Morgan s clever turns of phrase She would not allow praises to go to her head but they might be allowed to reach as far as her eyes, which, when she saw herself reflected in the hall mirror as they left, certainly seemed uncommonly bright he lounged away in a cloud of pomade and exclamation marks Or perhaps his clear eyed I spent the first several chapters of this book thinking What s the point of reading this when I could be reading Jane Austen Then something clicked Perhaps it was Morgan s clever turns of phrase She would not allow praises to go to her head but they might be allowed to reach as far as her eyes, which, when she saw herself reflected in the hall mirror as they left, certainly seemed uncommonly bright he lounged away in a cloud of pomade and exclamation marks Or perhaps his clear eyed description of trivial human failings Sophie and Tom treated her with great fondness and indulgence, reassuring themselves that she had not suffered a moment s loneliness without them, commiserating her small ailments, loading her with presents they had bought at Lyme, and generally according her every sort of attention, compatible with not really ...

    A lovely Regency romance novel, something I d particularly recommend to fans of Georgette Heyer Most books that can be labeled Austen lite are terrible, but Heyer pulled it off, and so does Morgan This is delightfully well written.It s lighter than Indiscretion andcomedic My favorite secondary character is the spinster cousin determined to be neglected and uncomfortable Not that Miss Rose was any trouble indeed, it was the very aim and desire of her life not to be so, as she was con A lovely Regency romance novel, something I d particularly recommend to fans of Georgette Heyer Most books that can be labeled Austen lite are terrible, but Heyer pulled it off, and so does Morgan This is delightfully well written.It s lighter than Indiscretion andcomedic My favorite secondary character is the spinster cousin determined to be neglected and uncomfortable Not that Miss Rose was any trouble indeed, it was the very aim and desire of her life not to be so, as she was constantly asserting An early attempt on the part of the Tresilians to acknowledge ...

    This is Jude Morgan s third novel written in the style of Jane Austen following INDISCRETION and AN ACCOMPLISHED WOMAN These three novels are light period pieces of social commentary on life in the 1800s All three are beautifully written and are especially appreciated by those readers like myself who wish that Jane Austen had written manynovels in her lifetime I must say, however, that this novel, in particular, reads as if it had been a collaborative effort of Austen and Georgette He This is Jude Morgan s third novel written in the style of Jane Austen following INDISCRETION and AN ACCOMPLISHED WOMAN These three novels are light period pieces of social commentary on life in the 1800s All three are beautifully written and are especially appreciated by those readers like myself who wish that Jane Austen had written manynov...

    If you like Jane Austen and or Georgette Heyer, this is the book for you.Personally, there was too much homage being paid to Austen in the form of characters, plot points, and dialogue If I wanted to read Pride and Prejudice, I would just read it, you know Still a good book, though.
