About the Author
Elisabeth’s writing career began when she finished third in Harlequin’s So You Think You Can Write contest in 2013 and hasn't looked back. She teaches Primary school but would rather write full time because unlike five year olds her characters generally do what she tells them. She spends most of her spare time reading and is a pro at cooking one-handed while holding a book.
She lives in Cheshire because the car broke down there in 1999 and she never left.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

So to a Midsummer Knights Kiss, which in itself is the most sublime title for a book. It tells the story of Robbie and Rowenna, from being rough and tumble childhood friends to the slow realisation that there is a much deeper feeling between them.
This is a thoroughly likable pair, beset by the teenage angst of not being able to see and say what is in your heart. So begins the age old journey into maturity and discovering that love is all that matters, written in such a graceful and delicate way, as only a few skilled writers such as Ms Hobbes can do.
Her detailed attention to the historical settings for her stories, take the reader into another time and place. The descriptions leaping off the page and into the readers imagination. With winter almost upon us, I can think of no better way to spend a few hours than curled up in front of the fire, and let Ms Hobbes transport you to medieval York, envelope you in knights, chivalry and a beautiful love story.
Hobbies simply encompasses all the reasons I read historical romance, the passion for history she brings and the longing for a time where magic and true love felt real and attainable.
You can feel the history seep off every page and know that although some parts are fictional, some parts are also very real and the characters you read could well have lived in that place and time. I almost expected Rowenna and Robbie to walk hand in hand around the corner. Their love story is remarkable, real and raw. Childhood friends to lovers is an excellent trope and Hobbies effortlessly makes the reader feel their deeper connection right from the beginning. The emotional tension is palpable and I've not read a book that had me so unsure and worried it wouldn't work out as it should. The rocky path to Rowenna and Robbie growing into adulthood and then their realisation that the way they see each other, and the way they feel about each other has shifted into something else is beautiful.
It felt realistic, it felt true of its time and my heart very well was invested in their story. The character growth and development progressed faultlessly and I really felt a sense of pride in watching Robbie in particular, come to terms with his feelings for Rowenna. It was really beautiful and exactly how romance should always be felt and read.
This book held me captive throughout especially as both Robbie and Rowenna made such interesting and wonderful characters. They are both strong but have vulnerable sides and this helped to create a connection that had me completely invested in their happy ever after. I especially loved how at the beginning of this book the reader sees such a strong connection between the pair even when they were still young.
The setting of York also works so well, it is one of my favourite cities so to see its history included made everything even better for me. Elisabeth Hobbes always captures the right amount of detail making me feel as if I am right there with her characters. Along with me willing the characters on to make the right decisions and seeing them fight for their happiness.
A Midsummer Knight’s Kiss is a beautiful, romantic and compelling story. From the very first page I didn’t want to put it down! Loved it!
