I read the first book from Ms Church Curricle & Chaise and I thouroughly enjoyed it. This one did not disappoint me either.
In The girl from Red Lion Square, we are introduced to two debutante sisters. Ruth, the younger, is definitely the typical very pretty, swooning and shallow young lady out to get noticed, whereas her sister, Celia is down to earth, sensitive and sensible and as beautiful in her own right, except that she does not care about fashion. So, she does not know she is attractive and she is not sought after due to her lack of frills and blushing faints. At the beginning, she was irritating me with her critical airs but as you read along, you realise that she is like this because even though she is the oldest by two years, she has always lived in the shadow of her more fashionable younger sister.
Then, we meet the most ridiculous, superficial dandies in the characters of Mr Springfield and Lord Barnham (cousins). Imagine one of them wearing boots too tight and walking with pain just because they are delightful and fashionable. Oh, how I do understand Celia Hampton's contempt for them. Yet, Celia finds Lord Barnham an enigma. There is more to him than meet the eyes and he is harbouring secret activities that she vows to find out. Is he really the brainless dandy he is portraying? If not, why is he playing a part?
The book is not fast paced, until Celia has to rescue Lord Barnham from activists. But what you have in the book, is the beautiful portraying of an era where women were expecting to be seen but not heard. Celia is a strong character, totally out of place in the rich society, even though she belongs there.

Oh what a laborious read it was ploughing through this book. I honestly only finished it because I had nothing else on the go -- and because I am vaguely interested in the period. But the plot could have been executed within about a third of this book. Even then it wasnt that brilliant.....Ho hum

This second novel from Lizzie Church gives us another Regency romance, but this time we have espionage and daring rescues thrown in. Undoubtedly well researched, both historically and geographically, the story transports us to the London of another age.
As another reviewer pointed out, many might like to know what happened next - a double wedding (as in pride and Predjudice) perhaps? Maybe there's a sequel on the way.

The first two sentences in the story suggested a surprise to me, that I was in line for a story more in the tradition of Fanny Burney than Georgette Heyer.
On noting this, I settled down to the possible delight of a 'true regency romance'.

Comparisons are to be expected from Heyer to Austen. However I would like to add two other names Burney, for the openness in her character depictions but also Bronte in her willingness to capture the social deprivation of the time, after all who places a romance novel wholly in East London, from Holborn to the Minories.

I am very thankful to Ms Church for setting her story in east London and noting how far it was to travel simply to promenade at the park. There is a delightful level of reality here.I am also very grateful that she doesn't take much more inspiration for Ms Burney, who although authentic to her period, I found excessively verbose.

Finally I am grateful for her cast of characters, Lord Barnham and Mr Springfield, the misses Celia and Ruth, Betty, Peter, the understated Eliza, the missess Blackthornes and their almost incomprehensible chatter and finally Mr and Mrs Hampton.

I enjoyed this very much.

This book was recommended to me and the second one I read on my Kindle. Once I started, I could not put it down. I loved the description of London in Regency era and the description of the fashion. The difference between the high society and the working class. But it is not just designer clothes and débutantes, it is also the story of espionage for the government. I found it very refreshing and it is an ideal book on holidays when lazing about and you can just read, read and read. I'll check other titles from this author.

Although an enjoyable read, I did not find the characters as well developed as those in her previous novel. I would have liked to have known more of Peter's background or the exact political motivations of the men from Wharton Court. Maybe an epilogue could be added - I would be interested to know the outcome of Ruth's relationship with Tom Springfield.
