I love the writing style of this author. She has such a fun sense of humor. I can't wait to start another one of her books.

Another great read from Carla Kelly! I think the reason I'm enjoying all of her books is that her writing reminds me of the regency romances of the late, great Georgette Heyer. Their stories are uniquely entertaining, incorporating the physical setting and historical events with witty dialog and complex characters... so different from the pulp romance writers who write serial sex scenes tied together by weak storylines.

I initially thought this book was set during the Napoleonic wars. Except that the relaxed behavior and speech is indicative of the late 19th-early 20th century, at the latest. Except Lady Mary Hall was founded at Oxford in 1878. Except that a farmer being an acceptable suitor for the squire's daughter would have been unheard of until after 1919. It's a good thing that Carla Kelly doesn't pretend to be a student of history. Aside from the sense of being unstuck in time, it's an enjoyable read.

I did enjoy this book but it was nowhere near as good as her novel 'Mrs Drew plays her hand' which I read first and found tremendously well written and entertaining.
