2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Expected a little more from this story. The characters need to be expanded a bit more. Quite a short story. Not much going on to hold the readers attention. Would not recommended .

4.0 out of 5 stars Beg to differ on what is a sweet slow burn romance, 14 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Partridge and the Peartree (Kindle Edition)
This book benefits from containing a sweet romance between a deaf, heroic ex military man and a charming spinster.
The hero has recently inherited an impoverished estate which he is working hard to restore. The woman he falls in love with is no simpering deb, but a published author and philanthropist.
The characters and story are not those common to many modern regency novels, penned by Americans or otherwise. For a change the H&H are not self absorbed and impossibly gorgeous.
There are no convoluted plots, any misunderstandings are credible and no one is behaving in away that is glaringly incongruous with the time period or their station in life.
Not quite sure why the names Philip and Amelia sound out of place in the Regency period as one reviewer states.
Also, I note that the word scoot is believed to be of Scandinavian origin, introduced likely first in Scotland around 1765 and passing into the rest of the UK and the States from there. I note the word is used several times by the author in her narrative descriptions, which surely do not have to fit the speech of the time anyway and also by a London street urchin who (based on the way his speech is written) is supposed to originate from Scotland.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Joy to Read, 20 Mar. 2013

Having just read a book that was quite frankly a slog, this was just what I needed to raise my spirits. As my title says, it was a joy to read. Lovely heroine, nice hero, and just enough misunderstanding to keep the tension flowing to a satisfying hea. It's a short read, and I was sorry to finish it, I was enjoying it so much.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete waste of time and money, 5 April 2013
This review is from: The Partridge and the Peartree (Kindle Edition)
Why do American authors bother to set their work in the English Regency period if they are not going to do the most rudimentary research into the period? Why not just write about what they know instead? This novella is badly written, with a disjointed plot, anachronisms on every page, unconvincing language, paper-thin characters and the usual distracting americanisms ( use of the word scoot repeatedly, character names more suitable for a US high school than eighteenth-century England, 'The Holiday period'). It's absolutely unreadable to anyone familiar with better examples of the genre.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very corny romance, 22 Jun. 2013

This review is from: The Partridge and the Peartree (Kindle Edition)
I found this book very disappointing, particularly as it was obviously written by an American trying to emulate writers of Regency romances. It is always annoying when reading a novel set in London when the text includes words such as "gotten" and other Americanisms. The plot was so predictable and the characters too good to be true with no twists to add suspense.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really? Please?, 13 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Partridge and the Peartree (Kindle Edition)
This is a short (thank god) version of a Mills and Boon historical but without the raciness. Not worth the time it took to read. Wooden, unbelievable and totally predictable characters.
