Fast moving story line that keeps you interested.
Liked the heroine and would to read some more in this series of books.
Hannah's adventures are written in a light and entertaining style. The coach is first held up by a highwayman and later the passengers are all stranded at an inn in thick snow where Hannah really comes into her own! The eponymous Emily does deserve seeing a bit of cold hard reality, as one does quite want to slap the silly young thing to start with! Of course all's well that ends well and the romantic entanglements are resolved!
I look forward to reading the rest of the series!
Hannah lacks excitement in her life and for years has waved to the stage coach which passes the house where she works. Now she is a comparatively wealthy woman she decides to travel and having found herself inexpensive rooms, above a bakers, she sets out on a journey to Exeter.
But it is winter and the journey is far from straightforward involving as it does highwaymen, deep snow and various other hazards of a typical journey through England at the start of the nineteenth century. Hannah's fellow passengers are all far from being what they seem and there are some ill assorted couples who Hannah vows to rearrange.
I loved Hannah - practical resourceful and an excellent judge of character. The other characters are interesting as well - Lord Ranger Harley, the obnoxious Captain Seaton, the down to earth Mrs Bradley and Mr Fletcher the lawyer among others. This is a feel good story and I will definitely be reading the other five books in the series. There is humour, good dialogue and well drawn characters - what more could anyone want from a book on a cold winter's evening?
