I have only been reading Lynsay's work for a short while but have so far wracked up 6 of her books, Bliss being the latest treat. Every time I finish reading one, I think, "OK, maybe THIS one is my favourite". Her books are a sheer delight to read and the time simply flies by.
Bliss is just SOOOOOOOOOO funny. I actually scared my two dogs while sitting reading because I just kept bursting out in hoots of uncontrollable laughter.
The lead characters are Lady Helen Tierney and Lord Hethe Holden. They are so perfectly matched in love, marriage and warfare!!! Some of the stunts that Helen pulls on Hethe are simply delicious. Everything from the garlic and stinkweed to the gigantic wolfhound that has a special new 'trick' especially for Hethe.
As always, there is a very happy and satisfactory ending that will leave you sighing and smiling for the rest of the day. I am so impressed by this fantastic author that I have ordered every book of hers' and am now impatiently waiting for them to be delivered.
My only words of warning about this or any of Lynsay's books are, don't pick one up unless the chores are done and the dinner is prepared, or else you may have to deal with a slightly confused and unhappy family when there are no clothes to wear or food to eat! Believe me, I speak from experience!! :o)
Buy this book and get ready to laugh your socks off...It's a definate keeper in my opinion.
