4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and funny regency story 6 Nov 2002
By Cilla - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is one of my favorite Mansfield books. It is sweet and funny. The secondary characters are well-developed and you really feel like you become part of the house party that is described. The romance never goes deeper than kisses, so if you are looking for sensual romance, this isn't the book for you, but if you like romances that don't make you blush, this is for you. I especially liked the way the characters discovered things about themselves that they didn't really want to face up to, and how it made them mature. The description of the frost fair on the Thames was very interesting. This is a light-hearted "keeper" for my shelf--definitely a
"feel-good" read, a comfort food like mac and cheese. Great for warming up a cold winter day!

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent read 25 Oct 2010
By Flower Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The plot: It was the worst winter in London's history, and the worst dilemma in Meg's.
Fiery Lady Margaret Underwood thoroughly enjoyed being single and the most of the ton. But Lady Meg also enjoyed being immensely wealthy, and by the terms of the late Earl of Barringham's will, she would soon have to marry or give up her fortune.
Then she found herself challenged by a man as stubbornly devoted to his bachelorhood as she was to her own willful ways...

The book started out to have Lady Meg ran away from her betroth party and into a carriage accident in the winter storm, she eventually spent few weeks at Sir Geoffrey's home to recover her twisted ankle. Our two main characters were from very different backgrounds, where Lady Meg was popular among the ton gentlemen, Sir Geoffrey found the fair sex exasperating, but they eventually came to understand each other and grew to care for each other a lot; It was a great characters-transformation and very well written. I also enjoyed reading the part about The Frost Fair, it was vividly described and it sounded very fun indeed.

But couple of areas just didn't work for me: the last 30 pages of the book dragged too long to reunite the hero and heroine; and there were endless misunderstanding and quarrels, it especially made heroine looked impetuous and non-sensible. Her aunt was also a weak point: she was portrayed as a sensible, good companion to Lady Meg, but could suddenly behaved like a seventeen year old silly female with her own love affair... No wonder Sir Geoffrey had the dislikes for female. I felt Ms. Mansfield should have Lady Meg earned the respect from Geoffrey instead just from her exterior beauty, and change his mind about the general female sex. It was a happy ending for everybody, but unsatisfactorily finished.
