Earlier this month (or was it last month) I did a review on Kristi Ann Hunter’s novel An Uncommon Courtship. I mentioned that I wanted to read the rest of the books in the series…so I did! Here are some mini-reviews of the rest of the series:
The first book in this series is a novella. I found that I was a fan of both of the characters. I loved the idea of Amelia growing up forgotten amongst her servants and Anthony coming back to London, a reformed rake. What didn’t work for me was that Amelia would be so familiar with her servants. I think if she was raised by them, they would be well-known to her, but I also think, that for her sake, they would have enforced the rules of the regency. Nevertheless, a very good start to the series
When you start this book, if you’re like me, you’ll think ‘I know where this is going.’ And yet, the book took some surprising twists and turns. I completely fell in love with the family in the Hawthorne House. I love that each sibling is complex and fascinating. They love God and each other. I really enjoyed the romance in this book and didn’t want to put it down. The only thing that didn’t work for me was the insertion of Miranda into Ryland’s mystery. It felt a bit like an overreach. However, I really enjoyed this book, so I continued to the next.
This was the last book I read. I will admit to being very excited to see how Colin and Georgina got together considering how Georgina feels about non-titled men. However, a portion of this book was a rehashing of the last book…from Georgina’s point of view. I will admit to skimming that section as the plot of the novel didn’t really change. But, once the book stepped into new territory, I found myself completely immersed in the story. There’s nothing like a bad girl becoming good and Colin was such a steadfast hero that I really enjoyed watching him fall for what seems like, a flighty Georgina.
Overall, a really enjoyable series. I cannot wait for the last book in this series!
