    This is a nice, light read The basic idea is a tried and true plot line but the execution is rather different The middle of the book is a bit dark The pacing is a bit slow There s a lot of descriptive details about steam engines and astronomy which are very boring The ending is a bit rushed There s some sensual romance kissing, touching, feelings but nothing super graphic and

    An enjoyable romp through Regency England Delightfully silly And engaging No debauchery hahahaha BUT CLOSE I SEE YOU TONI The carousel was surprisingly very effective It felt like A Midsummer Night s Dream a foursome chasing each other in the wrong direction I say surprisingly effective because I changed my mind multiple times as to who should end up together but the ending was satis

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Not one of my favorites by Mary Jo Putney I had a really hard time getting invested in either couple s relationship since it wasn t clear until about two thirds of the way through the book who was going to end up with whom Also, I found it really hard to like either of the female leads Antonia came across as very selfish and immatur

    After reading The Bargain by the same author I enjoyed seeing her note at the end mentioning characters who d been recycled from other works One of them was the good doctor Ian and so I picked this up The library only had Large Print available.We are treated not to a romantic triangle but a romantic square It gets a bit tedious but there are a few swoon worthy scenes toward the end that redeem it from being just okay.

    A delightful romance Likable characters and a plot that could have come from a Shakespere romantic comedy showing the different types of love selfish or selfless, enduring or infatuation and the four people who grown and learn the differences.No erotic content The characters, plot and other emotions besides lust are stong enough to engage the reader until the end.

    I am delighted that so many of these older titles are now available as ebooks It had been a long, long time since I read this one, but it was a fun read It s not as good as the books that came later, but it does make it easy to understand why Mary Jo Putney has been consistently on my autobuy list for lo these many years.
