    One thought on “A Gypsy at Almack's”

    1. A regency romance written by a future Newbery award winner. What fun! It is a really refreshing change of pace to have an imperfect hero. Ernest is sickly and weak and considered old and likes his porcelain more than shooting or boxing. Still, Lucy loves him with a hero worshiping reverence and her belief that he can do no wrong inspires him to at least do less wrong.

    2. This is a super book. It breaks several romance 'rules', with a hero and heroine of original character. Just a great read.

    3. Lucy St-Clair is not a typical Regency miss. She's 21, stout with a big bossom, bookish and enjoys discussing things young ladies shouldn't be interested in or know about. Three Seasons ago she came to London to stay with her godmamma to be brought out but did not succeed in finding a husband. Now her parents want her to come home so they can send her younger sisters to be brought out. In one last attempt to find Lucy a husband, her godmamma, Tabitha, asks her dissipated, confirmed bachelor brot [...]

    4. After recently recommending this to a friend in the strongest terms, of course I had to re-read it to see if I'd made a mistake. I don't know if my friend will like it but I still LOVE it. It's refreshingly different from most regency romances, not so much in the overall plot, which is utterly standard, but in the details, the voice, the little anti-romantic touches. It's very funny, full of likable characters (even the "bad people" are likable), with a deft, low-key touch, and particularly well [...]

    5. This was recommended to me by my friend Susan as a "classic romance" for my Reading Challenge. I enjoyed it quite a lot! The heroine is not your usual Regency-romance heroine, and I found myself laughing out loud in several places. The romance wasn't as swoony as I'd like, but I have incredibly high standards. ;)

    6. I read this book, because it is the first book published by Laura Amy Schlitz (written under pseudonym Chloe Cheshire), winner of this year's Newbery Medal for GOOD LADIES! SWEET MASTERS! VOICE FROM A MEDIEVAL VILLAGE. If you like regency romances, it's a delightful little book, especially when you are sleepless and sick. It's no Jane Austen, but still suffices.

    7. This is a really delightful little book - a regency romance that offers quality fluffy reading. The characters have some depth, but more than anything, the book has humour. I actually laughed out loud a few times. A great way to relax.

    8. I love this author (see Laura Amy Schlitz). This book reminds me of a classic Jane Austen with a bit of an edge. Sweet and entertaining, this book is a pleasure to read and hard to put down. I highly recommend it!

    9. Mostly adorable; the ending was perfectly done, as it avoided the boring "what happens after HAE" that romances so love.

    10. I remember reading this in high school, in the throes of my regency romance phase. I'm tickled to learn that it's by Laura Amy Schlitz.
