With her twin sister in London, her grieving father somewhere in France, Marianne was sent to Bath to stay with her grandmother. Bored and wanting to escape an undesirable suitor, she is excited for the opportunity to join her sister at a country estate. Her trip to Edenbrooke, however, is fraught with drama and excitement as her carriage is attacked by a highway man and she is rescued by a handsome stranger. When she finally arrives at Edenbrooke, she's surprised to discover that her mysterious rescuer has his own ties to the estate.

I hate first person and it got tiresome here with Marianne's thoughts and wonderings. She easily believed the worst of the man she professed to love: assuming he was off cavorting, etc. All the secrecy stuff got old, but as is with many Regency-themed novels, there is drama and romance, misunderstanding and froth.

This was a nice debut novel. I wouldn't call it brilliant or fantastic or the best book ever, like many of its 5 star reviewers do, but it was entertaining, sweet, easy to read, clean and a nice diversion. ( )

n invitation from her twin sister to join her in the country delighted Marianne Daventry immensely. Escaping both the boredom of Bath and a boring suitor was heaven-sent. But a highwayman starts off a series of events that will change Marianne’s life forever. This tale is filled to the brim with adventure, romance, charming characters, and delightful repartee. The story is sweet without being sappy and thrilling without being graphic. It was pure pleasure from beginning to end. ( )

Like Jane Austen's books, this took me a while to get into. But it was worth it in the end! ( )

Sissy: I read this book awhile ago and really liked it, but I didn't tell Bubby about it for awhile because she is a Regency romance snob. She is very vocal about the fact that she finds them insipid, inane, redundant, ridiculous.
Bubby: You're right. I don't particularly care for Regency romances. However, this author moved the story along at a quick pace and left out some of the unnecessary elements. Thank you very much, Julianne Donaldson. I loved Edenbrooke. It was divine. (Read full review at www.bubblebath-books.com) ( )
