Well-edited story, just what I have come to expect from Bethany House Publishers. Fun plot with a few surprises, some of which are suggested in hints, which I found fun. Novel seems pretty well researched, especially regarding auction of the time period and class distinctions. A little inaccurate on the chaperoning standards of the time, and thus probably fell short on other historical details (were I to know). But a solid, well-crafted story. Kept me up late, reading!

Great novel. Loved it.

This is a charming sequel that can be read as a standalone title, with a memorable cast of secondary characters that hopefully Jennings will revisit later in the series. Situational humour abounds, and there’s an undercurrent of mystery and uncertainty, which adds tension to the plot, balancing the levity. Pretty standard in terms of genre expectations but an enjoyable read throughout. If you’re looking for a sweet inspirational romance, this novel will be going, going, gone!

3.5 stars. Regina Jennings writing style really appeals to me. Her characters are humorous and usually down to earth. I was rewarded with a few chuckles reading this story. The heroine was likeable, the plot original , and the lesson of humility inspiring. however, I was expecting more.
