3.5 starsI really enjoyed this book The characters are fun, the plot intriguing and the pace fast There are enough misunderstandings to satisfy those who love wading through romantic angst What I didn t like are the author s insistence on using internal voice to state the obvious that had my eyes rolling a few times and the long, unnecessary descriptive passages I can very easily imagine what the furnishings of a lavish ship will look like, or the style and fabric of a dress I found myself doing [...]

This adorable little romance about a grown up Little Lord Fauntleroy falling in love with his priggish mentor proved to be entertaining and engrossing than I expected it would be The hero had depth and character, the heroine was less perfect, the love story had complexity, and there was also action and danger than I expected A most pleasant surprise.

Rogers took a huge risk with this poor street wise American discovers he inherited an English dukedom and must find his way story line But she pulled it off beautifully Set in the late 1800 s, she captured the feeling of the era, crafted characters of originality and tossed out plot surprises without seemingly contrived effort This is a fun, well written and well paced feel good story.

I believe this is author S.G Rogers best book so far Her deft handling of the Victorian era details shines in every scene The characters poor boy Wesley who inherits a fortune, lawyer s daughter Belle who helps polish the diamond in the rough are well matched and Belle s status as affianced to another lends the right touch of conflict to their growing romance, especially in the tense midpoint scene of a boat rescue, which was incredible I couldn t put the book down Minor characters also shine, f [...]

Sometimes you just want a simple, short, and sweet story and that s what this was for me The characters were simple, lovable, and had sometimes cute, sometimes clever dialogue that made much of the journey quite charming I liked the first 70% of the book the most and found the last 30% a bit abrupt, but maybe I was just missing some of the boat drama and characters The characters were a tad cookie cutter and I would have liked a heroine with a little backbone, but in the end, it was nice settli [...]

1.5 stars I adore clean reads so I really wanted to like this This story was either too simple, coincidental or just plain silly The lack of character development was disappointing as was the H s apparent lack of conviction when it came to the h s character Honestly, he would change his opinion of her within seconds of overhearing something or observing a scene that made him upset I wouldn t recommend this to anyone who s looking for an engaging or compelling read Sorry.
