did not like it

I love anything Regency - dresses, books, history - so that's the only reason I picked up this book. Plus the slight magical element reminded me of Sorcery and Cecilia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot (charming, delightful, makes me want to drink thick chocolate out of thin cups). Except this book was Boring. I skimmed. A lot. Well done Regency makes you want to read every detail because one dropped handkerchief or society conversation at a ball can change the course of a life - you WANT to pay attention. C&C made me want to take a nap. However, I got two great book recommendations in the Authors Note at the back and I appreciate Doyle's love for history (which was obvious and adorable). So. I'll give you one star. And now I need tea - preferably in a cup so delicate you can see the sun shine through the handle.
