I liked the idea of a treasure hunt and two enemies getting to know each other better. However, it seems like the treasure hunt was the main focus and the romance was added in. I did like the characters of Jane and Adam, a miller’s daughter and a gentleman and the banter between them. I kept reading as I wondered how they would solve the problem that awaited them when they returned to London. I received a copy and have voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The Hancocks and Ashfords have had a long-standing feud long before Miss Jane Hancock couldn't stand the sight of gentleman farmer Adam Ashford. But the summerless year of 1816 sees both families fall on hard times and an unscrupulous creditor forces Jane and Adam to sign a devil's bargain, they'll finally understand the true meaning of keeping your enemies close at hand.
The terms of this bargain? Locate a lost treasure shrouded in deception and mystery.
The catch? Only one can claim it

This delightful enemies-to-lovers historical romance was engaging from the very beginning. I loved how the characters were well-defined and had both sharp and witty banter between them. I thoroughly enjoyed watching their relationship change page by page. The author's worldbuilding was well thought out, making the story both adventurous and exciting and it moved along at a good clip. Once started, I had to find out how it ended and wish there were more of Mr. North's Historical Fiction Romances ...more
Christina (A Reader of Fictions)
Much as I love madcap, silly historical romance, this one did not hit the spot. The rhyming couplet mystery was too much for me to take, especially with the way they bounced off one kind stranger after another, conveniently getting the information they need to direct them to the next location. It felt like a rather boring, dorky video game, rather than a historical romance at times. On the plus side, there is some good banter between the leads, though their characterization is not strong enough ...more

London 1816
As Jane and her aunt Hester were walking to the office of Mr Rutledge, when she saw Him. "Jane stared daggers at the familiar man emerging from a carriage not ten steps ahead. Adam Ashford. The mortal enemy. The fountain of all ills."
But the money lender was calling in a debt he held for both of them and their estates. He would take Ashford's estate and Jane would go to debtor prison. What? Fortunately as they talked they both remembered some lost gold and letters that all came

Their only way out of an egregious contract with a vile solicitor is to find a long sought after gold bounty. They must follow clues in two separate letters to understand the full impact of the clues. Thus begins the adventure that will change their lives forever.

Jane and Adam are lifetime enemies stemming from a feud that goes back 70 yrs. When they both end up at their creditors at the same time, they can't imagine why. The man they both own money to had called in their debts, but neither can pay what is needed.

The feud started with the disappearance of money, if they could only find it, their problems might be solved. What neither knew, was that they each held a key to finding the missing money. If they can let their animosity go and work together,

The title of this book captured my attention and ‘Fair Weather Enemies’ proved to be quite entertaining. The Hancock’s and the Ashford’s have been enemies for several generations, but it when the long-standing feud involving the descendants Miss Jane Hancock and Adam Ashford, find themselves working together to save their family properties. Together they begin a hunt for hidden treasure, that will only end with one winner and one loser, left to face ruin, a forced marriage or debtor’s prison.

Sawyer North's Fair Weather Enemies is a fabulous historical romance debut. I love historical fiction, but I have to say Regency Era can be a hit or miss for me and not my favorite. This one is definitely a hit. Mr North has written a delightfully fun romance. Within the first couple of chapters, I was hooked and did not want to put the book down. I enjoyed Adam and Jane's story. I loved the humor in some of the scenes.
I am giving Fair Weather Enemies a very well deserved five plus stars. I can

This is an incredibly sweet and interesting historical romance from an author new to the genre. The story follows two people from enemy families who are forced on a difficult treasure hunt through the lake district of nineteenth century England. Their banter is witty and and the romance builds slowly and realistically. One thing to note is that it is a relatively chaste historical romance, however, I still enjoyed getting to know these characters. I received a digital ARC of this book through ...more

Road trip anyone? I love a good road trip story and with a treasure hunt, snarky comments, a chaperone and a lawyer who have eyes for each other, this road trip will be a blast. The highlight of the story is the treasure hunt and the witty dialog. Although it is not a hard hunt for the main characters it is interesting to see how they work it out. Is this a romance? Debatable. I would have liked a lot more of the romance side interspersed with the hunt.

This was a sweet enemies to lovers romance! Jane & Adam have had a family this for seventy years. The two are in debt and find out they must pay or suffer the consequences. The two embark on a journey through northern England for a treasure of coins that belongs to them in hopes to save just one of their family mills. This book had lots of landscape descriptions, getting to know the real Jane and Adam, and what it’s like to fall in love! It was an adorable sweet read! I was given an advanced ...more

As Jane and Adam embark on a trek throughout England they plan to hate their adversary, no matter how attractive, generous, and kind they are.

Sometimes, plans change...
This new to me author didn't impress me. The book read like something fantastical rather than romantic. This isn't what I like in a romance.
I gave it a rather low rating for me, 3 of 5 stars.
I received a complimentary copy to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book and all opinions are my own.

I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is a new author for me and decided to give it a shot. This an enemies to lovers story. In this story we have two feuding families that are forced to work together in order to save their families. I did enjoy the story but at times the journey the character took seemed long. I did enjoy the growth in the characters. I will have to look for more from this author.

3.5 stars - This is a nice, clean historical romance with lots of accurate historical references and a poet or two thrown in for good measure. I prefer yummy s&x in my reads. If you do too, you may want to look elsewhere. If you don’t, this is the perfect read for you.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Fair Weather Enemies by Sawyer North is a sweet and intriguing historical romance. A story of forbidden love, enemy families, and a difficult treasure huntthrough the lake district of nineteenth-century England. The characters are well-written with witty banter and a slowly building romance that will sweep you off your feet. I look forward to reading more from the author. ...more

This is a story as much about adventure as love. Jane and Adam are enemies who find themselves on a quest together. As they journey and relive the mishaps of their lives they find themselves falling in love. Jane and Adam are both fierce protectors of their families legacy which they are fighting to keep intact. It is fun filled with sprightly conversation as they journey to solve the puzzle.

After self-publishing science fiction novels over a period of years, I made the truly odd move into historical romance. Although romance is a strong thread in nearly all my works, I came to straight-up, nothing-but-romance only after turning fifty. Since then, I am plagued by the question, “What took me so long?” My awakening began rather innocuously when I casually watched the 2015 version of ...more
