Shelves: romance-hist

Unexpected houseparty with guests dropping in (literally and figuratively), the measles, busybodies, and rakes gone straight. Camp has good character development, an endearing cast, tempered humor and sweet emotions. An intriguing mystery that stirs the pot moves things along beyond mere relationships.

Overall, it leaves you smiling.
1.5 stars

I am extremely disappointed in this book. I won the first of the series in the Goodreads First Reads and really enjoyed it, giving it four stars. Also, I really look forward to reading the third book about Vivacious Vivian and Responsible Oliver. Taking all that into account, I was looking forward to reading this book, especially since I'd liked the excerpt I had read. Well, the excerpt was from chapter one and it all went downhill from there.

My biggest problem with the book was the he

e continua a saga sobre as irmãs Bascombe.... só que nesta historia o foco principal é a sua acompanhante.

historia de leitura rápida mas não menos interessante por isso.
as cenas de encontros e desencontros tornam a historia muito engraçada.

sem duvida uma leitura agradável e de deixar um sorriso nos lábios!

The thing I liked most about this book, is that Fitz, the eternal bachelor, had no qualms about falling in love. In the beginning of the book, he had no interest in marriage or responsibility. But once he started falling in love with Eve, he had no problem going with it. He didn't fight it like all the other men seem to do in these types of books. He let himself fall in love and then couldn't wait to marry her. I liked that. No hesitance on his part.

Just as I said in my review for the A Lady Nev
I didn't like this one as much as the first. I'm not really sure why, I think it's just that the main storyline between Fitz and Eve didn't take up enough of the book for my tastes. There was a lot going on in the background, and a lot of different subplots.

I liked the interactions between Fitz and Eve though, they were pretty entertaining I just think there wasn't enough of it. Also, the plot that they were involved in with the letters and the watch was a little boring to me.

I hope the next boo

A Gentleman Always Remembers is an enjoyable, pleasant romance driven by interesting characters. Candace Camp shows what a master she is at character development with this novel. I was not sure at first if I was going to like Fitz, the hero of the book, but he shows lots of growth and maturing that redeemed him for me. He went from being selfish to displaying responsibility for his family. The secondary love story is as enjoyable as the main one, and there is lots going on to keep you interested ...more

A Gentleman Always Remembers is an excellent historical romance! There was a lot of interaction between the characters which added depth and intrigue. A real page-turner. I can't wait to read the next story in Candace's Willowmere series, An Affair Without End. I really enjoyed this book and couldn't put it down! 5 Stars

What a wonderful adventure this was to share with such dynamic characters. I loved the humor, character development, and warmth. Can't wait for the next one in the series and hoping it won't be the last!

This book was a wonderful novel. I enjoyed the interactions between Even and Fitz (though I wish there was more interaction); however, I still loved it. There were a bunch of little sub plots, and they were all very interesting. Overall the book was a cute-must read book.

I loved this book. I cant wait for the last book in the series. Eve and Fitz were both delightful and it was great to see Fitz realize that there was nothing wrong with being an adult!! I love the little added supense and plot twist in these. books.

New world Americans reclaiming their aristocratic British heritage. From out of the ashes rise up some very sensual relationships! I found this to be a delightful romp and eager to finish reading the series. She's introduced a lot of women who need to find their match!

Liking this series....looking forward to the next one..
Molto più carino e ironico del precedente! La casa di campagna a Willowmere si riempie di personaggi,subito dopo che va via il padrone di casa Oliver con il cagnolino Pirata,diventando subito uno scenario di gradevole allegria e passionalità. In particolare ho amato molto il rapporto tra Eve,la chaperon che deve aiutare Lily e Camelia Bascombe ad imparare la vita londinese e l'amica Vivian,dispensatrice di saggi consigli. E' presente,come nel precedente,un piccolo giallo da risolvere che rende t ...more

A sexy yet subtle rakes and companions romance with ensemble house party fun.

solo diré dos cosas
1 me gusto la historia
2 no me gusto que a pesar de ser viuda Eve fuera virgen
I found myself liking this book much more than the first book of the series. I don't know if its because for most of the book, the somewhat annoyingly headstrong Bascombe sisters were not the focus. Or maybe its because there were only two Bascombe sisters left? All I can say is that this book is a step forward from A Lady Never Tells. And from the looks of it the next book an Affair Without End will be the best book of them all.

Candace Camp retains her status as a delightful read with this story about Eve and Fitz. It's part of her Bascombe Sisters series although oddly enough, the Bascombe sisters take a back seat to the solemn widow, Eve.
After losing her military husband, Eve has no choice but to return to her father's home, a distasteful circumstance the longer she spends under the critical eye of her stepmother. Soon she finds escape, as a chaperone to the Earl of Steweksbury's precocious American cousins. High on

Lettura di gruppo E&L

Non vedevo l'ora di leggerlo. Volevo sapere come si sarebbero evolute le storie delle sorelle Bascombe. L'inizio però non è stato scoppiettante. Mi aspettavo più divertimento e più coinvolgimento delle regazze, ma una si è già sposata e tornata in America, l'altra si sposa all'inizio del libro e poi non la vediamo più. Così rimangono le due sorelle minori. La protagonista però è la loro chaperon. Amica di Vivian, vedova da due anni e il marito avendo

It has been years since I read and Camp novel and was not disappointed. Actually, I enjoyed the writing much more than I remember. The characters were well developed on their own and as a couple. While I didn't need to know more about them I would have enjoyed it because I liked both Fitz and Eve so much. They do spend a little too much time attempting to avoid each other for propriety's sake which makes me feel that a little too much time on relationship development was missed. However, in the ...more

I really liked the relationships in this novel, especially the way the two main characters developed. I think the two younger Bascombe sisters are still a teensy bit flat but getting better. (Frankly, I'm glad Rose and Lily have already been married off. They weren't very interesting as written.) The main flaw in this story was the entire mystery -- the whole thing felt contrived just to add tension when the rest of the story was more than enough (seriously, without spoilers, SO MUCH happened in ...more
