Worth the wait!

Readers of Christi Caldwell have been waiting for the day that Poppy Tidemore got her HEA and she finally was grown enough to handle one Tristan Poplar! Catching a glimpse into the lives of all the Tidemores and their growing families was such a treat! I love that Poppy was the same spirited girl we met but older and more mature. I love that Tristan was the man who was worthy of loving her and I hope we see more of them in future stories. Thank you Christi Caldwell for making Tris

I'm so excited for this book! I've been waiting for Poppy to get her own book since she was a minor character in her four older siblings' book. I really ought to subscribe to Christy Caldwell's newsletter so I can get updates. I'm still waiting for Beatrice Dennington (another minor character in previous CC books) to get her own book!

As for the bookcover...Hmm...I like the color of her dress but not so much her pose and facial expression.

Poppy has been a character in many books, from her life as a child ,when we first meet her and she meets Tristan ,to present day and her life as an independent sassy adult.
She’s such a character, that the whole of Christi’s community has been begging for her story.
To join her finally with Tristan was a perfect dream , one I wholeheartedly applaud , this book was wonderful to read.
In parts amusing, in others emotionally traumatic, this was one book that will stay in my memory and be read r

Just when I think Christi Caldwell cannot outdo her previous story in pops a whirlwind known as Poppy Tidemore and Ms. Caldwell proves me wrong.

Poppy Tidemore, the last single sibling of the notorious Tidemores. Poppy Tidemore – energetic, forthright, make your head spin Poppy Tidemore.

Tristan Poplar, Baron Bolingbroke, has his own scandal that just may rival that of the TIdemores. When things come to light Tristan loses everything he holds dear.

Family and friends work to help the two with their

Tristan and Poppy

These two have belonged together for so long— how refreshing to finally read their story. Friends to lovers is the most fitting trope for this story. An easy friendship (crush) from Poppy’s childhood with her brother-in-law’s best friend morphs quite unexpectedly for him into a forever love.

I’m so curious to see what happens with all of these new characters Christi Caldwell had introduced into the mix. There seems to be a plethora of story/series ideas percolating beneath the

Pffff finally I have reached my weekend goal, I have read the three released books I wanted plus the unsuspected one I found back in my kindle shelves.
Actually I have only read very few Mrs Christi Caldwell work, but each read has brought its cheer of excitement, fun and heartache.
I have read none of the previous books in this series so everybody was new to me, but I took time to read the three extra bonus scenes which introduced Poppy and Tristan to me.

An emotional journey - worth every wait!!

Poppy and Tristan are quite well known to Christi Caldwell's readers, specially Poppy. Over the years we have almost seen her growing up in front of our eyes! And so, Poppy's book was a much anticipated one for me. But never had I imagined that Poppy's journey to womanhood would be so emotional, so enticing, so full of angst! This story will, on obe hand, make one laugh aloud, smile with affection for the girl who is so very unique, and the sweet relation

Being in love isn't easy! As soon as I finished the first chapter, I felt this was going to be a special story. Poppy and Tristan had been friends. Poppy fell in love with Tristan when only a child. As an adult, Tristan's entire life was blown apart. I don't want to spoil the story for you...but believe me, I cried a lot for him. Poppy came up with a wonderful proposition. But the road to a HEA is often fraught with sadness and tears...and this is true for Poppy and Tristan. Christi Caldwell kno ...more

It's a Wonderful Life Poppy & Tristan Style

We finally have Poppy's HEA and I for one couldn't be happier. For some reason this story reminds me of It's a Wonderful Life. Poppy has been infatuated with Tristan since she was a young girl. After being forced together during dueling scandals, Poppy and Tristan come to a marriage pact, marrying for all the logical reasons and denying their own feelings. Poppy is an eternal optimist, innocent and brave and devious all at once. Tristan is ever hono

I've been waiting for this story since reading my first Christi Caldwell book and it does not disappoint! Poppy and Tristan have a comfortable friendship but wish for more, and we get to watch as their relationship advances into love. Both have had scandals and are being judged unfairly by others. Both are reclaiming their identities. Both are trying to figure out how to make their relationship work. Luckily, they have enough love to overcome their problems. I would suggest reading the other Tid ...more

Poppy💙Tristan

This author’s work is brilliant in the way she merges the past, present and future, both in her storylines and the amazing characters she creates. All her books can totally be enjoyed as stand-alones, but as the reader becomes an avid fan of Christi Caldwell, the world she builds upon only makes the draw and emotion that much more intense and real. Many readers have been anxiously awaiting Poppy’s story, but to new readers I must say they won’t regret the choice to select this one!

Courting Poppy Tidemore is book 5 in The Lords of Honor Series by Christi Caldwell. I really enjoyed this book. I like how Caldwell writes about complex characters that are relatable. Poppy is one of my favorite heroines. She has made appearances as a young girl in earlier books. Now she is all grown up and causing scandals wherever she goes. Tristan is the amazing hero in this love story. He also appears as a secondary character in a previous book. I liked his integrity and his honesty in the f ...more

Finally, Poppy’s story!

While this can be a stand alone tale, knowing the rest of the Tidemore sisters makes it special. Poppy is the youngest and while all of her sisters created a scandal, Poppy’s is the biggest. Her hero has been Tristan, once a lord, but now a baron. His scandal is bigger than hers and not of his doing. But they have their marriage pact, and marry they do. Do you think Christi Caldwell will give us an easy HEA? Not this time. Christi manages to tear at your heartstrings with

If you have read any of the Tidemore series, then you would know that the Tidemore's always seems to be in the center of scandal! And now there was only Poppy left, there was a bet on the books that is wasn’t a matter of IF Poppy was going to be embroiled in a scandal, but when!

But we are getting ahead of ourselves because the beginning of this book doesn’t start out in a gentleman’s club! But over two years earlier in a quiet room at a ball, where Tristan Poplar, The Earl of Maxwell comes acro

Courting Poppy Tidemore by Christi Caldwell
Lords of Honor Series Book Five
Poppy Tidemore is the youngest and last of the Tidemore girls. Her three older sisters had all caused a scandal of some sort and her brother, Jonathan Sinclair...known as Sin...had lived his nickname until he was tamed by the girls' governess. Which of course, also caused a scandal. And now, Poppy has followed in that tradition...just in a less traditional way.

Tristan Poplar, Baron Bolingbroke's life has taken a bad turn.

POPPY!!!

At long last, Poppy! And I love her. She is all I ever dreamed of, and, while the romance runs a little rough, this is an adorable story. The characters are, on one hand, more than well known, and on the other, a wee bit mysterious. Their lives together are, to begin, based on mistaken assumptions, which eventually give way to understanding of each other...and thus, love.
It was perhaps, a key down, in a superficial way. Poppy has been incredibly mischievous, always in trouble, even for

This has been a story a long time in the making. Poppy is the last of the Tidemores to marry, we have had to wait until she has grown up a bit to read about her and her hero. As an avid follower of all Christi’s stories I held out hope that Tristan would be her hero and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. They met when Poppy was just a girl, where she held him in her heart always wishing he would see her as more than a sister. Now their scandals have brought them together at the newly opened Paradi ...more

What a Sweet Love Story!!

Poppy is certainly one who will keep you on your toes to the end.
She is still full of vitality and trouble as she was in her sisters' books.
Tristan has always looked at Poppy as a friend since they were kids. He just didn't realize it could be more until she grew into a beautiful young woman.
Poppy has been in love with Tristan since they were kids but kept her feelings to herself until she comes up with the marriage of convenience to help with the scandals.

Finally we have Poppy Tidemore’s HEA, well worth the wait in the last of the Lord of Honor series.

Poppy with her very independent nature, finds her love in Tristen Poplar, takes an author with great imagination to come up with that name to fit with Poppy.

As a reader I have read so many of Ms Caldwell’s books mentioning Poppy, who I meant at a young age, always had an honest answer for all her sisters, and did not let me down in this her book, stayed true to herself.

Wonderful finish to a series b

A life for the youngest Tidemore sister

When the announcement that Poppy’s story was coming soon, I read through all the the Tidemore romances. I’m glad that I did. And there are unpublished excerpts of Poppy and Tristan, as well.

This is a story of chance meetings, friendship, personal honor, and self determination. And the affection that ties it all together for these two characters. Enjoy!

I rarely have a chance to get through a book very quickly, due to a hectic schedule. For this book, however, I managed to spend every single moment with Poppy and Tristan! The characters created by Christi Caldwell are so real, it's like sitting down and catching up with old friends. The Lords of Honor Series is rife with angst and twists and turns.

Reading about the final Tidemore was bittersweet. I have been waiting for Poppy's story and it delivered. Her spirit and heart were so enthralling you couldn't help be want to be in the room with her. Tristan was such an honorable, vulnerable character and their relationship was frought with so much emotion I could hardly breathe. I hope we get to see more of this couple and all the Tidemores in the future.

I listened to the audible version of this story. I just finished listening to Courting Poppy Tidemore and WOW! I swear at one point it felt like my heart had been ripped out of my chest! I laughed (out loud whilst walking around with earbuds in), I cried, and I felt a whole tide of emotions. It was nothing like I expected, but I enjoyed it so much more because of that. Tim’s performance was magnificent. I LOVED this book so much. It made a very, very busy day, a joy ❤❤❤ ...more

Excellent!! As I said in my Amazon review....Caldwell could write a grocery list and I would enjoy it immensely. Loved Tristan and Poppy's story but the only problem is that I wanted more. I didn't want it to end, at all. Can't wait for her next tale. I'm sorry I never write a synopsis/mini description of what's going on. I do tell you that I enjoyed it and to buy it!! You won't go wrong it if you've enjoyed previous books by Christi Caldwell.

Courting Poppy Tidemore

I loved this one! Ok, so I’ve loved them all!!! Poppy was such a great character and her love for Tristian was amazing. It took awhile for Tristian to figure it all out but I’m so happy with the end. I’m very interested to see if we meet this new Maxwell and if anything will happen between Chloe and Mr. Gray. It seemed there was a little tension between the two.

Oh Poppy.

I had to deduct a star due to the number of times I was angry with Poppy in this book. My heart broke for Tristan and his sisters. Now I anxiously await the next story as the lack of an epilogue tells me there is so much more to come.
Ok, I gave the star back...an author that can make you feel such visceral emotions deserves 5 ⭐
