A romp through Regency England…

May 31, 2017

I do love a good romance, it makes you all warm and fuzzy inside when you read a good book. Obviously this is not restricted to perfectly written romances but I have to say, for me, although I love them, thrillers don’t leave me with the same gooey feelings.  Despite that any well written book should be celebrated and lauded and passed around forever in my opinion.

Eloisa James

Eloisa James writes a great book, with sparkling conversations, likeable characters and storylines that – although they follow the tried and tested formula of girl meets boy, falls in love, has a disaster but comes right in the end – always manage to capture your imagination and keep you page turning until you have to rush to work, dinner or bed. “Seven minutes in heaven” is just such a great book. The chemistry between the characters is palpable. The story line is simple and engaging and the ending is all you could want in a romance, happy ever after, yes please.

Mrs Snowe is the proprietor of a very exclusive governess agency and Edward Reeve is in need of a governess for his two half siblings. What ensues is a romp through regency England and all the pitfalls of being a member of the ton. Ms James doesn’t hold back and neither do her characters. If you blush easily these books might not be for you, but if you want to smile when you put a book down and imagine how the characters will grow and continue their lives then this one is definitely a keeper.

Until next time
