If you want a short and romantic story, Love Birds of Regent¿s P
If you want a short and romantic story, Love Birds of Regent’s Park , written by Ruth J. Hartman, is the perfect read! This is the first time that I read a book by this author! I received a copy of this book for an honest review! I liked her main characters Oliver and Lucy who are two beautiful young persons. It's a short story of 150 pages. Lucy loves birds and likes to sketch them in the Bird Sanctuary, where she will meet Oliver, Sanctuary worker, who also loves birds. A sweet friendship will bloom into love for them. Some scenes are funny to read! Ms. Hartman is a descriptive writer; you can feel the surroundings as you read the story. It's a sweet love story!

I have just read another amazing book by this author. This author grabs the reader from the first page and holds them until the last page, then leaves them wanting another story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
This particular book is a refreshingly light and heartfelt story where the heroine meets the hero but her father is in no way going to approve of the match as he thinks the hero is very beneath his daughter. The reader will be cheering for the couple while laughing at the mishaps and antics they endure, especially when they first meet. I could see the entire scene in vivid color in my mind and laughed until I had to wipe away the tears. The main characters, as well as the secondary characters, come alive through Ruth’s very talented hand.
The heroine, Lucy, likes to visit the Bird Sanctuary as it is a place she feels close to her mom. There seems to be a major difference between the hero and heroine, hence the disapproval of the match, but everything is not as it really seems to be on the surface. The heroine must convince her father that love is actually something that happens between two people and not just for the birds.
The reader is pulled into this feel good story, filled with humor, romance, blackmail, mystery, and finishes the last page with a wonderful sigh with a smile on their face. This is the second book I have read by this author and I am now hooked on her books. I will add her name to my favorites list of reach and grab when I see her name as the author of a historical romance. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I will not hesitate to purchase this authors future work.
Lucy Ashbrook finds a pleasant diversion when she visits the Regent’s Park Bird Sanctuary to sketch the different birds that live there. Birds aren’t the only pleasing thing she finds, though. A certain Sanctuary worker, Oliver Barrow, has stolen her heart. But Lucy’s father will have none of it. No daughter of his will marry a common laborer.
Oliver Barrow loves everything about his work at the Sanctuary. The birds, the trees, the ponds… a certain young miss who mesmerizes him. Miss Ashbrook is beautiful and sweet and shares his love of birds. But Oliver has a secret that just might get in the way of anything more than friendship developing between them. And he can’t share that secret with her. Not yet.
How can Lucy convince her father of Oliver’s worth? That love isn't just for the birds?
