This is a rather lovely braincandy comfort read. There’s very little conflict, and what there is is pretty easily resolved. Even the characters that caused that conflict are well-meaning. Sophie and Tony are charming, and sweet together. All in all it’s an enjoyable, gentle and light-hearted romance.
A fun, light read laced with some gentle satire – society believes Felicity’s masquerade because no-one wants to risk looking stupid by admitting they’ve never heard of ‘Brasnia’ or its royal family. Several characters – the stepfather, the butler, the stuck-up fiancée – deliberately lean towards caricature, and Miss Chubb(inski) is clearly living her best am-dram life. The hero is aware of Felicity’s secrets pretty much the whole time, so there’s barely any conflict caused by that.
All in all, it’s cheerful braincandy, and well worth a read if you’re looking for a light-hearted Regency romance.
He’s an arse who can’t admit when he’s in the wrong; She’s a sheltered teenager with her head in the clouds. Together, they jump to ridiculous conclusions! And eventually, learn to have an actual conversation.
Essentially, this is a series of epic misunderstandings, people being idiots, and not communicating. To be fair, they start off on a bad footing, and continue being arsey / ditzy from there. I found it an amusing, quick read though. Not as good as other books by the same author, but fun to roll my eyes at the idiots nevertheless.
Also, I choose to believe that Peter the Feline Overlord will continue to be in charge, no matter what the Earl thinks.
I quite enjoyed that – I’m in the mood for undemanding braincandy, and that’s pretty much what I got. It wasn’t the longest book, and I think I’d have liked to see some more interaction between the twins, and a longer build up to the romance (!) but the chemistry between the characters was pretty good. I suppose there’s more of the twins getting to know each other in the rest of the series, but I’m not so interested that I’ll track them down.
A fun read – definitely a nice bit of braincandy, and one I hadn’t read before. I have read others in this series, so I liked seeing how it started out. Thanks, e-library! (How I love being able to borrow books without even leaving the house. So lazy. So awesome.)
Short but fun and engaging, I enjoyed seeing the story through the eyes of the different characters and finding out exactly what had happened to Linda. Maybe it could have been fleshed out a bit more so we could see a bit more of what Mike was and had been up to, but it’s definitely made me want to read more of the series.
This was a perfectly good braincandy read for me. Yes, the whole thing is hung on a total failure to communicate like normal human beings, but I rather liked both the hero and heroine nevertheless. There wasn’t too much faffing about and angsting, which would have been tedious. All in all, it was quite sweet.
