Fresh - Fresh Fiction
This inspirational novel shows that true love can conquer all and that people can change their thought processes and, in turn, their lives. A perfect blend of humor, romance and a little conspiracy make this a charming story, indeed. --Fresh Fiction Review by Viki Ferrell

For a book not labeled as a Christian romance, this regency novel was pretty sweet and even Christian sounding. The heroine reflects on the Bible and even has a change of heart that strengthens her faith. I wasn't expecting that. And for a romance it was more funny than romancy because of some of the crazy things that Constance did. While this book could be read as a stand alone, I got the impression their was a previous story when I was about halfway through this book. That didn't hurt the story at all. I just thought I'd mention it. As far as entertainment value goes, I read this book quickly. There were a few places where the spiritual journey seemed to pop out of nowhere, like the inciting incident that should take place prior to the reaction was delayed or missing. But it was a minor issue. Overall I found this story delightful and amusing. The antics made the story cute. I particularly loved the mix up at the end and Constance's scheme involving a gun. I won't say what it was (or it would spoil the fun for the reader) but I will say it was hilarious! In fact, that was probably my favorite part of the book. I also enjoyed all of the crazy bantering and small talk that people did when socializing in those days. If you like a clean romance with witty banter and funny incidents, you will enjoy this regency.
