“The Pursuit of Mary Bennet”

This was an interesting take on P&P. It was fun to see beloved characters again and to really get to know Mary Bennet who is mostly invisible to her family. She visits her sisters and Kitty is also single but has her sight sent on a gentleman. (I was surprised it wasn’t Denny).👶🏼The book starts… Continue reading “The Pursuit of Mary Bennet”

“The Last Eligible Bachelor”

This was a fun idea for a book- like a Regency Bachelor show plus secret identity/goose girl and forbidden love. Great romance and characters. Tillie was once a lady but with her father in prison, she goes down the society ladder and is a lady’s maid. This drop of station could be worse. She gets… Continue reading “The Last Eligible Bachelor”

“A Well-Trained Lady”

I have loved all the books in the Seasons of Change series by different authors. This is Jess’s second novel and I had read the first one but I can’t remember it enough to know if this is Jess’s writing style.👩‍🏫It’s a well rounded story and characters but long winded too. I’m a little confused… Continue reading “A Well-Trained Lady”

“The Last Word”

I really enjoyed this debut Victorian historical from Hastings.

“The Invention of Sophie Carter”

Loved the book “The Invention of Sophie Carter”. It was described as a Victorian “Parent Trap” with identical twins switching places. 😁⏱ Sophie and Mariah Carter are orphaned twins living off the kindness -scratch that- ness of others. They were put to work at a young age and never had much affection except for each… Continue reading “The Invention of Sophie Carter”
