However, although the speech and manners portrayed in this book are not Regency accurate, if you read it more from a fairytale perspective it actually works.
One reviewer described it as a weakness of the book that the heroine's neices are irritating, but it is clear the author meant them to be irritating! The fact the heroine still loves them is fine with me, that's the way families are, there's a few of my relatives I love and spend time with only because they are family.
The h&H are thoroughly appealing and deserve their HEA.
This author is often quite good at creating supporting characters and I think she does a good job here. She rarely has out and out villains causing trouble for her H&hs, but more realistically, as she does here, she creates characters who are very selfish and thoughtless and these create the challenges for the H&h.
It's a sweet idea for a little love story but it's very poorly written. I've no idea why other reviewers gave it four and five stars. I'm at a loss as to how it genuinely justifies such a score. It's a bit like one of those movies that you think had potential but never achieved it - and you realised you'll never get that time back.
Some of the dialogue can only be described as dodgy for the era. It's rather awkward in places and made me wince a few times...and the nieces are extremely irritating little nitwits.
I only perservered as far as I did because there were odd moments that weren't bad. Shame it wasn't consistent throughout.
