Went back and forth between 4 and 4.5 stars, but went with 4.5 because of the chemistry and the architectural details. Though I'm still not sure what a "Chinese dairy" looks like and Google was not helpful. Apparently Russia's biggest dairy is in China. Who knew?

I also enjoyed the side romance between Juliana's hard-of-hearing sister Kitty and Peregrine (son of her nemesis).

actually really enjoyed this, loved the details of the house and how she talks him into a corner, into accepting her improvements, because who wouldn't want to be comfortable and have the same furnishings as the very best houses? Really loved how Juliana was really building her dream home, i guess he was lucky he was of good enough material to be included as the house husband =) felt the Peregrine character was unnecessary and distracting, also the ending could have been wrapped up better.

Shelves: regency
This is an unusual regency in that the house plays a role as large as any character! Author Hendrickson was building her own dream house at roughly the same time, and her care and painstaking attention to detail shine through in every paragraph. She provides the reader with a fun and detailed look at the regency home.
