What Readers Say!
"Arabella Sheraton brings a wealth of joy with this swift seasonal read. Patience Cherwell is such an endearing heroine, she is everything you would imagine a genteel and kind woman of her time and upbringing should be. While she could have come across as boring or even uninteresting she doesn’t, she is attractive and intriguing, she is appealing in an understated, classic way. She is the perfect foil to her young friend’s vibrant beauty and the fact that Lord Blackwood sees her for who she is and recognizes her worth
makes him a stellar hero. I loved the supporting characters in this story and the lovely descriptions. This was a whirlwind, fairytale-like story that had me smiling from the start and I’m still smiling days later. If you're looking for a beautiful break, this is a great choice. I’m looking forward to reading more by this author as this was a very enjoyable traditional Regency." -- Pauline Michael, Night Owl Reviews
