5.0 out of 5 stars Edwina 21 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very interesting story a page turner. About a woman who thinks that no one would love her and that men would only be interested in her pretty sister but one man feel in love with her. A real fairy tale romance

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings about cold footed heroine 4 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have mixed feelings about this book. There are some seriously bad typos and a word of warning to those expecting romance at an early stage in the story, it does not really appear until about 70% into the book. In fact the story is more about the heroine Edwina growing up and maturing into a more complete individual.
Edwina is a good person, but her fear of living in the real world leads her to occasionally make selfish decisions. So when she has the chance for a new life she walks away from it, more than once.
As a reader I was a bit frustrated with Edwina deluding herself that she was being practical, when in fact she was being indecisive and afraid to try something new. But people can be like that and her personal journey and slowly developing romantic feelings towards Alex are not without some charm, but in some ways the narrative is as listless and sluggish as Edwina's approach to life and her story might have been more entertaining and gripping had it been more concisely told. In this case I think shorter is sweeter.
The romance (what little there is) does not venture into the bedroom and the hero is charming, although I personally feel he is too often absent from the narrative.

4.0 out of 5 stars A charming new story in the style of Jane Peart 16 Jun 2008
By Tonya M. Vieck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
What girl doesn't dream of a romance with a dashing rather mysterious Scottish lord? An expense paid vacation, a chance encounter with a Scot and an unexpected job offer make this an enjoyable read. Edwina is a charming story about the unexpected romance of a small town librarian who finds love when she least expects it. Edwina is set to accompany her step-sister on vacation to Scotland when her traveling companion is unexpectedly called away. Our unlikely heronie finds herself stranded and alone in a foreign country until she is rescued by a handsome if rather mysterious Scot who sweeps her off to his castle. What follows this romantic rescue is an adventure that sends our unexpected heroine's life in a direction that she never anticpated. Written in a style similar to Jane Peart this book from a new author is a must try for lovers of clean Christian romance.

2.0 out of 5 stars what romance? 19 Jan 2012
By S. L. Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
i am not going to complain about the writing style or editing though there are issues there. my problem with this story is the utter lack of romance for a supposed romantic love story. how is it that everyone else in this story was aware of alex's feelings for edwina except her? he never spent enough time with her to get to know her. then he offers her a job watching his child and is gone for months all the time she believes he is dating her sister. why would she have any idea he was interested in her? then when he comes back there is still no romance yet everyone gets mad at edwina when she doesnt believe or understand why alex wants to marry her. i didnt get it either.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Surprise 14 Dec 2011
By Restfinder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I discovered Edwina while going through my list of publishers looking for more new Kindle reads. The cover art drew me right to the book; and then the first few pages of the story hooked me, I hated to put it down. I read quite a few books a month and these inexpensive buys are wonderful, but not always the enjoyable read that Edwina turned out to be.

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak Plot and Unbelievable Characters 20 Jan 2012
By Luv2Read - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was though the author just cobbled together parts of classic stories she liked without really integrating them. It was weak and inconsistent. Not believable. I would not recommend this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Atrocious Formatting, Cliché and Weak Characters 18 Jan 2012
By V. Emmie C. Teschen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded "Edwina" last night and read about a quarter of the way through and told myself it wasn't worth continuing. First and foremost, the formatting was terrible. Did anyone even look at it before publishing? I don't think so. There was no paragraph indentation or spacing, except occasionally you'd come across a couple of pages that did have indentation. Many MANY sentences had just one word on a line and the remainder of the sentence on the next line. Quotation marks were missing so dialogue would blend with narration. Dialogue from two different characters would take place on the same line... A little effort in editing would make HUGE difference.

The character of Edwina was cliché and predictably weak. Who faints after a simple trans-Atlantic flight? Edwina does... right into the arms of a Scottish lord. Women cry at the drop of a hat, can't make up their minds, or figure out how to solve a simple problem. It's embarrassing to me, as a woman, to read about such triteness in the characters.

I wanted to enjoy the story, but it just had too many things going against it to make it enjoyable. Sorry, only two stars from me. Unlike some, who use OCD as a reason to continue reading stories they don't enjoy, I have no problem stopping and saying, "There's better things to read," and deleting it off my Kindle.
