Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Deb Marlowe always does a great job in her books.
Friends to lovers is one of my favorite types of romance novels and I really enjoyed this one. The female lead was very appealing, the hero was just right, and I liked that there was a real and interesting reason behind his reluctant behavior. We really got to see his thinking change and I loved that he admitted his mistakes to the world in the end! Some fun and unusual settings too, especially the masquerade (loved her unusual costume) and the scavenger-type hunt at the end was great.
Deb Marlowe's debut book, her Golden Heart Winner, is a real treat. Her heroine, Sophie has gumption and a career of her own despite the "tons" best attempts to foil her. Her hero Charles, tortured by a past he cannot get clear of, is everything a woman desires. Sophie's part in her nemisis, Miss Ashford's charity ball, is delightful and quite original. I found it easy to relate to the insecurity Sophie must feel as a woman with "brains" in England at that time. Bravo! Miss Marlowe!
