3 Mini Reviews: Regency romance, farce and women’s fiction

Recently I read three books which I enjoyed but didn’t have enough to say about them to post a full review here. This is not a reflection on the books but rather on my lack of imagination! So here, in a few sentences, are my thoughts on the following books:

Three mini reviews

1. From Wallflower to Countess by Janice Preston. 4/5 stars.

From Wallflower to Countess by Janice Preston book coverThe blurb: click on the cover image to go to Goodreads and a description of the book.

My take:

In the interests of full disclosure, I know the author of this one! Jan is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and a lovely lady. This is the first book published by Mills and Boon I’ve read, although I’m not sure how I got to my age without reading one!

As you may have guessed from the cover, this is an English romance set in the Regency period. If you’re a fan of the specific genre and/or romance in general, I highly recommend you read this book. It’s extremely enjoyable, easy-to-read escapism with likeable characters. A fun read. It also features that most elusive of things: well-written sex scenes!

2. The Second Chance Shoe Shop by Marcie Steel. 3/5 stars.
