Format: Mass Market Paperback
Beatrix Hathaway has always felt more comfortable outside with the animals than in a ballroom crowded with people. Despite that, she still yearns for the kind of love and passion that will sweep her off her feet yet no man has ever taken her breath away or even seriously courted her.

Captain Christopher Phelan is a dashing, handsome soldier who has plans to marry Beatrix's pretty, flirtatious friend, Prudence, when he returns from fighting in the Crimea. But life on the battlefield has darkened his soul and he fears he is no longer the man he once was. The only light in his life are the regular, witty letters he receives from Pru. So much so that he's beginning to fall in love with his correspondent. So when he returns from the war, determined to claim the woman he loves, he's confused as to why he feels nothing for Pru and so much for Beatrix. But who really is his letter writing love and what will he do when he finds out he's been duped?

This is the last in the Hathaway series of books following Mine Till Midnight, Seduce Me at Sunrise, Tempt Me at Twilight and Married by Morning (Hathaway Series). As with the other Hathaway books, you could easily read this book as a stand alone but you're more likely to understand the characters and the history of the family if you've read the other books before reading this one.

I am a great fan of Lisa Kleypas I have read and re-read all the Hathaway book and absolutely loved everyone fantastic books great caricatures in the book's. I have all of Lisa Kleypas books absolutely love everyone she is one of the best authors of historical romance books. Even though I re-read her books I never get bored with them. I love reading a set of books about the same family because you get to know all the family. You will not be disappointed Highly recommended.

Review taken from my Blog Post (#63) in January 2011, after borrowing the book from the local library:

This is the 5th Book in the Hathaway series, and I found it completely enjoyable. With quite a few heart churning and breath catching moments in it. The story of the youngest Hathaway Sister, Beatrix, a free-spirited girl with a love of natural history and animals. She had a couple of Seasons in London, and whilst men seemed to like her, the unconventional lifestyle of the Hathaway Clan never managed to ensure that a suitable mate would offer for her.

Christopher Phelan once told everyone that she was more suited to the stables than the ton in fact, so how did they end up together?

Christopher planned to marry Beatrix's friend, Prudence when he returned from fighting in the Crimea, and had arranged to write to her via his Sister-in-law, Audrey. However, Prudence a shallow, conceited and self-absorbed lady really couldn't find any need to write back to him. Beatrix was horrified and begged her friend to let her reply on his behalf.

Somewhere along the way those letters turned into love letters, and Beatrix wrote breaking off contact.

Christopher eventually returned a war hero, and determined to claim the girl he had irrevocably fallen in love, but soon realises that the Prudence in the letters is far from the reality of Prudence the girl.

What began as an innocent deception turns into agony and unfulfilled love for them both.

A 4.5 ***** Star read if I could award half stars.

(this was originally posted on Book Lovers Inc)

Warning: This review is completely biased, I adore Lisa Kleypas' work and this series in particular, don't expect any reasonable arguments from me. No pigs were killed during this review. All *squee* emanated from this slightly deranged reviewer (AKA me).

*Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee* <=====Me getting the book last Saturday (you were warned)

Love In the Afternoon is the 5th and last *sob* book in the Hathaway series. My heart is breaking knowing that this was the last book. I adore (<==see? I adding new words to my vocabulary) this series. You were warned, I'm a huge Lisa Kleypas fan, and to think that I read my fist book by her only 6 months ago'now I am truly and completely addicted! *squee* Every Historical romance I read is now compared to my new Lisa-Kleypas-standards. Every time I finish reading one of her books I have a hard time reading anything else afterward. (not fair for the poor book that has to follow lol). And I keep rambling about how great her books are to everyone (sorry Susi, she's my Megan Hart lol).

Let's go back to the gem that is Love In the Afternoon. I loved Beatrix ever since we met her in the first book. She's peculiar and can't help rescuing every wounded animal she finds. Beatrix is funny, adventurous, a bit wild (she wears trousers!!!) and does not care about social etiquette . She is surrounded by rescued pets, such as the hedgehog Medusa, Lucky the 3 legged cat or Dodger the ferret etc' But Beatrix is also very witty and intelligent! She can tell what 'animal' people are by observing them, FYI she sees herself as a ferret.
