About the Author

About the Author

Like many writers, Elizabeth Johns was first an avid reader, though she was a reluctant convert. It was Jane Austen's clever wit and unique turn of phrase that hooked Johns when she was ‘forced’ to read Pride and Prejudice for a school assignment. She began writing when she ran out of her favourite author’s books and decided to try her hand at crafting a Regency romance novel. Her journey into publishing began with the release of Surrender the Past, book one of the Loring-Abbott Series. Johns makes no pretensions to Austen’s wit, but hopes readers will perhaps laugh and find some enjoyment in her writing.
Johns attributes much of her inspiration to her mother, a former English teacher. During their last summer together, Johns would sit on the porch swing and read her stories to her mother, who encouraged her to continue writing. Busy with multiple careers, including a professional job in the medical field, writing and mother of small children, Johns squeezes in time for reading whenever possible.

Good... but somehow I feel a little disappointed with it compared to how I felt at the end of the others.... Not that there was anything wrong with it. Just a little haphazzard in the plot... But that's more like real life I guess than complete circles. I feel so many elements of it were really promising but were then rushed or abandoned. Still enjoyable though... I guess after the second and third books and with the possibilities here, I just can imagine greater quality having been achieved. And I didn't quite like the last line - seemed cheap compared to the rest. The whole epilogue, perhaps the whole end of the book, felt rushed and unconvincing....

Overall a well written story. Storytelling at it's best. I found the people and situations believable, and remarkably familiar to my own experiences. I was amazed at the end to realize there were no hot and heavy sex sceens . Overall I liked it very much.

Shadows of Doubt by Elizabeth Johns The Loring-Abbott Series Book Four Gwendolyn Lambert has lost most everything in her life. Her father's carelessness lost them their home, money and respect after his death. She lost her brother to war. Her love of painting, as she can't afford it and her chance for marriage and family. Just when life is at it's lowest, a ray of light shone through. For a short time at least. Major Andrew Abbott didn't lack female attention. He just never found a female whose attention he wanted enough to marry her. Stuck in the boring town of Bath he has no hopes for anything...until the night his grandmother meddles in his life. For once he doesn't mind the older woman's meddling. I love the characters in this series and it's always enjoyable to see them return in each new story. Elinor and Adam, Nathanial and Lydia, Sir Charles and of course, the Dowager Duchess of Loring. This story brings us back to the setting of book one, Surrender the Past, when it takes the characters to America and Sir Charles plantation. Looking forward to the next story where Gavin Craig will finally, hopefully, get his happy-ever-after.

Such a heartwarming story, without arrogance, with wonderful loving characters. Elizabeth Johns tells a touching story that draws you in, lets you feel their emotions. I love that it starts out in Bath, England then sails to Virginia. What better place to fall in love than a Virginia plantation! I love the Loring-Abbot family, not your usual snobby English Ton, no, this family draws you in and welcomes you. The Dowager may just be my favorite character. This is my first book to read in the series, and I must read the first three now to know the rest of these wonderful characters stories. This story has no sexual scenes, but they weren't needed in this book, and were not missed. I won this book at a book release party, and I'm so glad I did. Now I have a wonderful new author to read.
