I enjoyed this story line. It has romance, intrigue, a bit of British humor (not Monty Python humor, more like Dame Maggie Smith humor) and even had some unexpected events. Of course there were times when I wanted to slap Mary Anne for being so daft but overall I did enjoy the story and look forward to the authors other works.

This book is reminiscent of stories like Pride and Prejudice. Its is a sweet, elegant, and clean regency romance. This book is set in the first person which does take a while to get accustomed to but I think it adds to the intimacy of the story. Because this is a "clean" romance, the flirtation between Marianne and Philip is allowed to blossom into love beautifully. This book is filled with joy, anguish, mystery, danger, jealousy, yearning, anger and love. It is a sweet feel good romance that I will revisit again.

A fluffy story, good fun. It is read, however, by what I can only describe as a female Dick van Dyke. She is clearly American and struggles with a British accent. It comes across at times like Burt in Mary Poppins, at times like an emotionless robot when she's struggling to pronounce the 't's and really never manages the 'u's at all in any combination. It's a shame, because it detracts from the story.
