Mrs Drew is excellent. Interesting characters with depth, lots of emotional insight and a believable story. Miss Grimsley is good though as well, though in a more frilly but fun vein.

Two delightful Regency romances. They have well-drawn characters and wittiness that Jane Austen would have admired.

'Mrs. Drew Plays Her Hand"
I really do like stories by Carla Kelly. She gives you romance along with an under current of suspense, and a little humor. They are not overloaded with too many details on the romance side(if you get my meaning). All the while you know there will be a happy ending; but, you are not sure how or if they will ever get there. This book had all of the above. I loved all of the characters in the story. There was no skipping in this book. I was afraid I would miss something important.

'Miss Grimsley's Oxford Career'
This is a typical 'Carla Kelly' book. It is light and easy to read. There are no detailed sex scenes. It was just a girl meets boy/boy meets girl story. The only kink in the script was the girl turned the boy down when he declared his love and proposed. And, turned him down and turned him down until it became tiresome. This is not a 'spoiler'...you will find out soon enough. I'll save the 'happily ever after' and how it came about to you when you read it.
