Overview

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?

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Christine A.
Lucy goes to the Bird Sanctuary not only to sketch the birds but to be close to her mom. It was one of their favorite places to go together, before she died. It's where she meets a worker, Oliver who helps when an item of hers is stolen by a thief. Meanwhile, Conrad is waiting, lurking for Lucy's hand and he will do anything to get it. Hopefully, her chaperone Anna will be able to assist her or will she be too distracted by the turtle doves? I enjoyed this book and the characters that come alive
Goodreads - Lisa Schmidt-ringsby
This is a very sweet book. You like the hero and heroine right away! There is no question that they belong together. I was glad that Lucy had Anna in her life to be her anchor and go to person. It was a surprise that there was not more tension in the book. So often there is tension between the rivals for the heroine’s hand. This did not have that, I kept looking for it. But in the end I was with a smile and I was glad I got to meet Oliver and Lucy.

Meet the Author

Bestselling author Ruth J. Hartman spends her days herding cats and her nights spinning sweet romantic tales that make you smile, giggle, or laugh out loud. She, her husband, and their three cats love to spend time curled up in their recliners watching old Cary Grant movies. Well, the cats, Maxwell, Roxy and Remmie, sit in the people's recliners. Not that the cats couldn't get their own furniture. They just choose to shed on someone else's. You know how selfish those little furry creatures can be.

Ruth, a left-handed, cat-herding, Jeep driving, farmhouse-dwelling romance writer uses her goofy sense of humor as she writes tales of lovable, klutzy women and the men who adore them. Ruth's husband and best friend, Garry, reads her manuscripts, rolls his eyes at her weird story ideas, and loves her in spite of her penchant for insisting all of her books have at least one cat in them. Or twelve. But hey, who's counting?

    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!

    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?
    Ruth dragged me in AGAIN! From the very beginning my emotions were involved. I really, like sincerely hated Conrad! But she did such an amazing job writing this story that she was able to evoke that kind of emotion but still had me unable to put the book down.
    When you first meet Lucy you can tell she is usually a very reserved and solitary person. As she is drawing a picture of a bird at the Sanctuary Oliver appears and compliments her work, which throws her completely off balance. After this interaction hilarity ensues! Honestly, Ruth painted such a vivid picture that I could easily picture it happening, it made me laugh so hard.
    Oliver……oh how I loved him. He was that perfect mix of sweet, caring, funny, intelligent and mysterious. He was such the perfect gentleman throughout the whole book. Learning his story and more about him was awesome!
    While Oliver and Lucy are the main story the secondary characters (Anna & Robert) were fantastic and drew you in. Anna is Lucy’s maid/chaperone. She is the only mother figure Lucy has and you can tell how much she loves her. She is at turns absent minded and over protective. But the way Ruth describes her…..man I can’t say anything because you need to discover it for yourself. Robert works at the Sanctuary. He is so sweet and is there whenever Oliver needs him. Watching his story unfold made me smile. I was so happy. 
    Ruth amazing job yet again! I can’t wait for the next book! 5/5 stars!

    Love isn't just for the birds! I loved this book! I had actual

    Love isn't just for the birds! I loved this book! I had actually read the second book in the series first. I was so interested in Lucy & Oliver's story that I had to read the first one. Lucy and Oliver start off as just friends. Lucy doesn't believe anything more can come of the friendship because they come from different worlds...her world has money and she believes Oliver's does not. Lucy would be willing to give up her world, but fears her father would never let her. I don't want to spoil the story, but you must read to see how it all plays out. And if you read this story first, still get the second - while you hate Conrad in book 1, you'll grow to love him in book 2!

    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.

    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.

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.

    I had fun reading this book, but it also reminded me how often I have bowed to pressure - from family and from friends, I think we all have!  There were times that I really related to the characters, and loved the fact that they got to know each other, the real each other, and managed to come together despite the fact that they had others in their lives that would like to keep them apart.  We all have those in our lives that have secret agendas, so it was nice to read about a couple - even though they are from a different time - that had to face a lot of the same issues we face today!  So, yes, I was able to relate to the characters and I found them fun and enjoyed spending a few days with them!
