Ahhhhh… I get goosebumps just thinking about ’em.
So, when I was provided with Linore Rose Burkard’s third Regency Fiction novel to read and review, I was notably giddy. I ordered the first two novels from Amazon so that I’d be all caught up when the third arrived.
I am happy to tell you that I fell in love with her stories.
With a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, Linore has put in the elbow grease and her novels show it. With a breathtaking sweep of England in the early 1800’s, her detailed writing pulls you into the story. From gown designs to architecture, Burkard has detailed settings deliciously idyllic, and in some cases appropriately forlorn. And she has done so with an expert hand. She then leaves a stage of quirky characters to keep you entertained and they do so with enchanting results.
The three books have similarities–their cast for example, as well as overlapping story-lines and settings–but each has it own flavor. It’s own mystery. Each story has its own delightful twist. And, I turned every page with glee. I hope you will too.
Her books have been marketed as “Inspirational Fiction for the Jane Austen Soul” and the tag-line fits perfectly. If you fell in love with Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy, you’re sure to love Ariana Forsythe and Phillip Mornay. I’ve reviewed all three books and will include the link to the first book below. So, that I do not spoil your read, I won’t post the link to my reviews of her second and third books. If you’re desperate to read the reviews, I’m sure you’re savvy enough to find them.
