5.0 out of 5 stars Twist and turns in this tale make a great read.
Romance, scandal, secrecy entwined with great characters, humour and tension make this book impossible to put down. One of my favourites.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant, well written historical piece
I liked this - there's good sense of the period setting, and the plot bowls along merrily. A really interesting heroine, quite well drawn, with a fascinating trade as a dress-maker. I loved the McBride "Menaces" and enjoyed the input of the bitchy matrons whose gossipy ways provide the starting point for the plot.

I was maybe less convinced by the plot itself...

This review is from: The Bad Luck Wedding Dress (Bad Luck Brides Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I liked this - there's good sense of the period setting, and the plot bowls along merrily. A really interesting heroine, quite well drawn, with a fascinating trade as a dress-maker. I loved the McBride "Menaces" and enjoyed the input of the bitchy matrons whose gossipy ways provide the starting point for the plot.

I was maybe less convinced by the plot itself - there was certainly a lot of it (the H rescued the h at least three times, I think), but it could have done with a little editing, and I really couldn't quite get my head around why anyone, however superstitious, would blame a dress for creating bad luck, nor why the heroine's sophisticated mother would believe that marrying her off to a no-hoper would actually work. But you just have to go with the flow sometimes on plots. The biggest weakness for me was the hero - he was made to have so many "characters" (genial bar owner, driven & guilty brother, architect manqué, reluctant lover) that I just couldn't *get* him.

But overall, not a bad read - could do a lot worse!

This review is from: The Bad Luck Wedding Dress (Bad Luck Brides Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I was,attracted by the title, well picked.
The book itself may be a bit long for the story but it is enjoyable enough.
The story is creative d and has cohesion despite lacking depth.
The book has featured in my search for romantic comedy books, so I feel obliged to say it is not a comedy , more like romance and action but some parts are funny.
Overall it's alright

This book is one of the best I've read in a long time. The story is full of believable characters and there's never a dull moment. I wouldn't normally consider reading a book set in the eighteen hundreds but I'm so glad I did. It draws you in from the first page to the last, with lots of twists and turns. Simply wonderful.

Brilliant read, twists and turns with a happy ending. Loved the story line, strong characters unexpected twists, should be a follow-up.
