Winter Wedding

3.82  ·  Rating Details  ·  146 Ratings  ·  17 Reviews
Clara Christopher had met Lord Allingcote several years previously at a houseparty, when he had chosen her as his flirt. But he'd disappeared from her life, and now reappeared escorting the outrageously beautiful Nel Muldoon to a wedding for his cousin. Though his lordship still had eyes for Clara, she had no intention of ignoring the troublesome Nel.

Miss Clara Christopher was a rolling stone. Orphaned ten years earlier and poor as a church mouse, she charted her life amongst relatives and friends. Clara visited only those people whom needed her. At two and twenty, she felt she had roughly three years left before she would have to find work: perhaps, as a paid companion.

At present, she was temporarily residing at the Lucker residence: Branlea. Her cousin, Baron Oglethorpe, was marrying Lady Prissie Lucker. Clara was helping prepare for the

After reading dark, angst books lately I wanted to re-read one of my “comfort books”. The book is one of my favorite books by one of my favorite regency writer. It takes place in the country estate right after Christmas. The main characters are wonderful, with great chemistry and delightful banter. There are a lot of funny, satirical moments with secondary characters.

I have been on the hunt for another good regency novel. Unfortunately, the regency time period is a favorite for trashy authors. It was quite refreshing to come across this cute and sweet little love story. It was clean and fun, and I hope I will like her other books as well.
4.55 stars - pg13?

While it was a bit interesting to have the main characters already in love then lose track of each other for two years [not the actual instance, mind you, but the concept] neither character is even mildly charismatic and I didn't care whether and then when they connected again.The hero is a bit odd and the heroine bland. There's also and amazingly spoiled heiress, but she's just not credible. Not worth the read unless you are in the grips of total boredom, although this one might just intensify ...more

This book was really lots of fun. The banter was witty, supporting characters well done. The males protagonist was portrayed so human--with insecurities, misperceptions, but I rooted for him the whole time. The heroine was also well-done. She wasn't portrayed as bitter despite her tragedies and life's bad luck. She spoke of her host's quirks, but still said, despite all those, Clara liked her a lot. We all have friends like that...where you aren't quite sure why you like them-- but you do!

One of the most ridiculous I've ever read.
Half the time, the guy came off as a creepy psychopath who, after knowing the girl for three days, decided she must not look at any one else but him. The other half of the time, he was much too familiar and emotional on such a short term of acquaintance.

Kindle. 3.5 stars. A pleasant Regency era romance between more serious reading. Nice diversion, worth watching for others.

It's not bad, maintained my focus the whole time reading, but there's something significant lacking.

Does he love her or not? A wedding and a run a way, will keep you guessing.

I adored this book. Once I started I was up until 4 am to finish it. So I'm giving it five stars for being awesome and making me happy. Now for the disclaimer - it's not great literature. It's happy fluffly fluff with extra fluff. I highly recommend it if you are interested in well written fluffly fluff.

I think a person can relate to Clara Cristopher if they knew a flirt or even flirts that was part of their special someone's life. The flirt, Nel Muldoon, annoyed me which only proves that Joan Smith wrote the character well.

silly fun. I think I've been reading one 1970s regency romance a day for the last four months, as etext on my phone. This one is more charming than usual.

A sweet, nicely written Regency piece. I loved Clara and Ben, especially the rogueish Ben at the end. very good read
