For once I don't need to inwardly cringe as I tag this novel regency I can't tell you how nice it feels to read about characters who behave with decorum and don't go around waltzing or making love in uncomfortable places This is an author who did her research and while the strains of Austen and Heyer poke through it never distracts This is Smith's regency world not theirs The story follows two heroines the mature and steady Miss Clarissa Harlowe and her guest vivacious wannabe novelist Lady Kitty Two charming gentleman appear along with a host of delightful side characters including the prereuisite younger siblings and villainous villains Of course the path of true love never did run smooth so plenty of impediments keep our couples apart And none of those impediments include stupid misunderstandings another reason to give this book 5 stars It is not always the most polished novel I ran across one passage referring to Kitty as Katie a name she is never referred to before or after but I was still uite pleasantly surprised with how skillfully the author handled several scenes In particular the soiree from the Lucretia's POV as it reveals the growing affections of the characters without bashing the reader over the head with it Subtle but brilliant If looking for something romantic and clean with enough absurd antics to keep things entertaining I highly recommend checking this delightful novel out It is definitely one I am glad I purchased because I think it is going to get an annual re read
