Ah, but all is not peaches and cream. Not everyone is delighted with the match. Her beloved's housekeeper fears Ariana will dismiss her, and she'll be out on the street. Mr. Mornay's enemy is angry and seeks revenge, using Ariana to get back at him.
The author gets Ariana into so much hot water that I want to rescue her. The book has a high tension level and deserves the term Romantic Regency Suspense. This is no tea and crumpets novel. Right to the end, I wondered what other evil would befall our hapless heroine.
If you're a big fan of Regency Romance, you'll love, "The House on Grosvenor Square."
Great review Susan! I still haven't read the first one but it's nice to know that the sequel is good too. :-)
Hi Jess -
Linore's an excellent writer. I hope her books will go on your Wish List. :)
Linore is one writer I keep meaning to check out. I'm now going to head over to look at her first chapter on Amazon!
Hi Rosslyn -
I'd read Before the Season Ends prior to this book. Otherwise, you'll miss the whole boy meets girl thing.
Linore has a firm grasp on the Regency period. She also has a newsletter with contests, Regency tidbits, etc.
Oh! I love Regency romance! Sounds like a delightful book.
Hi Jill -
If you haven't already read Linore's first book, check out Before the Season ends. Book 2 is a sequel.
I've heard of this one, but I don't usually read many historicals, unless they're written by an author I know. I'm more a contemporary geek.
This does sound good, though!
Hi Eileen -
If you decide to try a historical, I suggest you start with her book, "Before the Season Ends." This book is a sequel.
Thanks for sharing this review, Susan. I've had my eye on this book for a while; now I have more insight on it. Thanks and blessings,
Hi Karen -
If you haven't read, "Before the Season Ends," it would be a good idea to get that first. This is the sequel.
I think you'd enjoy both of them. :)
I've wanted to read her novels I just haven't gotten to them yet. Thanks for hte review.
Hi Amy -
Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
With Christmas coming soon, it's a great time to make a book Wish List. :)
