Everything elseLet s just run through tSetting AwfulIt s like Allain read one regency romance and then decided to write her own with no knowledge of history or Britain The language Shake, Rattle and Roll is so very modern They might as well have said YOLO SWAG It s like she made a little checklist for the settingCostume ball checkCall on someonen town checkDid I send a card Am I wearing a morning dress Did I take a hackneyCarriage ride A Private Midnight in the park checkVisit familyn the country checkThis book just made me so much appreciative of Georgette Heyer s books Characters MehJulia The Weavers Idea Book is an awful friend Shes completely different The Mission of Mooney Rooney in the second half of the book So different that she may as well have been a different person Her motivations don t make any sense Julia s brothers dashing what ho Spiffing darling Shall we have a go at whist then go see the horses In other words he s super British and essentially a joke I did like Selina s relationship with her parents I really liked HenryRelationships BlechDon t get me started on Mr Malcolm He was awful Horrible One of the worst male leads I have ever read The Road to There in a romance Theres no chemistry No logical reason for her to like him I really wish Selina an Henry would have gotten together And at the end he was treating her horribly He was telling everyone they were engaged so she couldn t weasel out of Templars in America it Dubcon much And what the heck was up with them constantly ending upn compromising positions People didn t fall Used (Getting Inside of V, into puddlesfountains and have mudfights so much back thenStructure of the story Thiss the worst This Inside a Barn in the Country is possibly the best example of how not to structure your novel ever The climaxs like 100 pages away from the conclusion The denouement goes on FOREVER This book The Simple Guide to Freshwater Aquariums is way too long It should have only been a novella And the wayt s t s like Tales from the Toolbox it sn two parts I already said Julia s a totally different character Well t s like a totally different book WHY DO SO MANY THINGS HAPPEN BEFORE THEY CAN RESOLVE THIS Like seriously Just wrap t upAnyway f you re looking for a regency romance try Georgette Heyer or Eloisa James Not this. Ic Selina Dalton can only try her best And when she begins to succeed Jeremy Malcolm s not sure whether he has discovered the perfect woman Or the perfect hoa.
