    Carla Kelly never fails to deliver. I enjoy all of her books, but I make it no secret that her Regency books are among my favorites. This one did start out a little slower for me than most of her Regencies, but soon picked up and reminded me why I love Kelly's writing. Often the heroine in Kelly's books draw me in first, but Onyx didn't manage to do that. However, Major Jack Beresford, like most of her heroes, is utterly charming, and by far one of my favorite of her heroes. He's flawed, too! Yes, the dashing hero stutters. In Jack's case, he also suffers from PTSD, but these are all elements which only add to Jack's likability. Kelly's characters are real with a great deal of heart. They struggle for what they have and for what they most desire.

    With strong characters, and interesting plot, laughter, sweet romance, and very clean, I highly recommend Summer Campaign to anyone who enjoys historical romance.

    The synopsis of this book makes it sound more light and fluffy than I found it to be. Onyx is an illegitimate child, being bullied by her foster mother into a loveless marriage with an obnoxious reverend- who could give Mr. Collins from Pride and Prejudice a run for his money. I rather pitied Onyx as she woodenly gives in and goes along with plans that others make for her life. My interest in the book was dwindling until Onyx experiences independence from her family as she travels to her future home and begins to realize the value of the person she really is. She meets Jack through a harrowing experience that tests her mettle and establishes her as the strong and spunky female lead I always enjoy reading about. Jack is a wounded soul, just trying to get home and recover from the nightmares of war, but Onyx brings joy and laughter into his heart again- I found his wicked sense of humor a fun element to their relationship. For a regency romance, this book is a little more gritty than the norm, which I appreciated as the author explores themes of death, sickness, grief, war, societal bounds, and family loyalty. Highly recommend to fans of Jane Austen, Julie Klassen and Julianne Donaldson.

    (Thank you to Cedar Fort Publishing for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review)
