I’m Not Charlotte Lucas by Kasey Stockton

About the Book

Title: I’m Not Charlotte Lucas
Author: Kasey Stockton
Genre: Clean Romantic Comedy
Publisher: Covenant Communications
Release Date: February 7, 2023

Northern California girl Charlotte “Charlie” Lucas has two great loves: Diet Coke and Pride and Prejudice. But her passion for Regency classics is tempered by a very real fear: Charlie is terrified of having to endure the fate of her namesake—spinsterhood. Despite her best attempts to maintain a modern sensibility, she can’t say no when an elderly neighbor asks Charlie to attend a charity ball with her grandson. Blind date or not, Charlie is powerless to resist the allure of a real-life ball. Soon it’s clear that she will struggle to resist the charms of her blind date too. 

Liam Connell is every bit the swoon-worthy leading man, straight out of Charlie’s daydreams. But he’s completely unattainable—his last girlfriend was a gorgeous actress and a far cry from Charlie’s world. So after a magical evening with Liam, Charlie is ready to get back to reality, even if her best option right now is a former boyfriend who wants to give it another shot. Unfortunately, despite imagining she’ll never see Liam again, he seems to be everywhere. How is a lady to move past a fantasy when life suddenly seems to be imitating fiction to an alarming degree?

My Review

I’m Not Charlotte Lucas
by Kasey Stockton
Rating: 4.5/5

As a fan of Jane Austen, I was excited to obtain an ARC of this book and it did not disappoint. I literally read it in less than 24 hours and was entertained at every moment. The characters were authentic and fun. I feel like this story could have been a Hallmark movie. It gives all the warm fuzzies while making you laugh and smile. The heroine is someone who you want to root for and the hero is swoon-worthy. I definitely will be reading more from this author!

Highly recommend if you enjoy clean rom-coms that will make you keep reading to the end!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: The Best Intentions
Series: The Huntresses #1
Author: Sarah M. Eden
Publisher: Covenant Communications
Release Date: November 21, 2022
Genre: Clean & Wholesome Romance/Historical/Regency

In the eyes of London Society, Gillian Phelps is suitable enough. Though the ton whispers about her change of residence, any speculation remains just that: ballroom gossip. No one—not even the other Huntresses, the group of ladies she calls her dearest friends—knows that she is harboring a devastating family secret. Gillian has become adept at hiding the reality of her circumstances, but the close quarters of a house party will test her ability to conceal the crushing truth. And with so many people to deceive, the late arrival of another guest is a most unwelcome surprise.

Despite his standing as a gentleman of the ton, in truth, Scott Sarvol possesses little more than two debt-riddled estates. When an opportunity arises to survey one of his properties, he travels north, only to find himself an unwitting guest at Artemis Jonquil’s house party. He is warmly welcomed by all—except the aloof Miss Gillian Phelps. But when Scott proves himself unexpectedly helpful in a crisis, his acquaintance with Gillian shifts from wariness to something warmer. As both her charade and her feelings for Scott deepen, Gillian realizes that the truth could spell not only a devastating fall from Society but also a shattered heart.

MY REVIEW

The Best Intentions
by Sarah M. Eden
Book 1 in the Huntresses series
Rating: 3/5

As someone who is a big fan of the author, I was actually a little disappointed by this story. I found it enjoyable but not as much as the other books I’ve read from her. I don’t know if it was the main characters or the plot but the story did not grab my attention the way other books from the author had. There is a certain sweetness to the book that is lovely and endearing but overall, I came away from the story unsatisfied and wanting more. I will definitely continue to read more books from the author and maybe you will have a different opinion about the story from me.

The cover is gorgeous as always. The characters were sweet and supportive but maybe lacked some of the flavor that I have come to expect from the author. The plot felt weak to me. Do I want to read more about the Huntresses? Absolutely. But will I reach for this book again? Probably not.

My Review

Sundown

by Susan May Warren

Book 3 in the Sky King Ranch series

Rating: 4/5

Such a fun conclusion to this series! It’s full of romance, action, and adventure that will make you keep turning the pages. I do think it probably needs to be read after the first two books. They are also worth reading so I highly recommend them too.

First, the cover is gorgeous. All of the covers in this series are beautiful.

Second, the story kept my interest and sucked me in from the very beginning.

Third, the clean romance between the two main characters was great. Such fleshed out characters that are relatable.

Fourth, the author always manages to weave in her faith with power moments of truth. Such a great addition to the story.

Highly recommend if you enjoy Christian romantic suspense that is entertaining and action-packed!
