A sweet, humorous romance about two lifelong friends who come to realize the true depth of their feelings.
This is a delghtful little novel, a Jane Austen premise of chilhood friends that do not recognized the depth of thier affection. It does possess well drawn and likable characters. The story breezes along. A comfortable and humorous read. A nice evening read for a chilly winters night or relaxing beach read.
Diane Farr always writes a wonderful love story.
I'm not normally a reader of Regency Romance novels, but this one I enjoyed. The characters are endearing and the story is well presented.
From the back cover:
Dashing Sylvester "Gil" Gilliland would no more think of ravishing--much less marrying--his comely childhood friend Chloe than he would his own sister. But Gil's mother happily sees more to their bond than either yet realizes. And when the two innocents are caught in a deceptively compromising situation, she wastes no time in using to her advantage.
Soon enough, the pair find themselves no less than engaged--and no less than panicked at the very idea. But in a case of mother knows best, what seems a tender trap may free two stubborn hearts.
Review: Delightful story. The two characters remind me of Emma and Mr. Knightly of Jane Austen's "Emma," where the two have known each other their whole lives, so they are frank and open with each other. The ensuing banter is terrific!
