To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I loved the banter between the main characters the plot a little convoluted but discovered the fact the cousin had easterly plans. The antics of the knife throwing, room breaking heroine had me smiling. A truly good romantic read. Thank you
When I began reading, I hoped that the heroine would be an update of Georgette Heyer's omnicompetent Sophy Stanton-Lacey. As I continued reading, I found this was not the case, but became concerned about the plot's growing implausibility. To other and future Alissa Johnson fans: don't wo rry. The HEA works out quite well, at least in the world of Regency romances. (Aside: why do publishers insist on putting women in dresses from the 1870s on the covers of novels about the 1810s?)
This novel contains the usual funny mistakes of usage, including the hilarious mixing up of "askew" and "askance." On the other hand, AJ knows the difference between "staunch" and "stanch," and that is MAJOR.
As usual, I recommend this book highly, and I only hope that some future AJ novel centers around the further adventures of Sophie and Alex. Perhaps their young family could find itself in Brussels for the battle of Waterloo....
Alissa Johnson never disappoints. I’ve read all this writer’s books and kindly request more. What a relief to find an author who allows our imagination to provide the details in the romantic situations our main characters find themselves. Author does not rely on porn to pad the page count. Dear Author: we anxiously await your next series. Get busy!
I love this author. The characters were well drawn and believable. Conversations were riveting. The storyline was well done. I am going to get the next book in the series since I enjoyed this one so much.
