D that s because while the author clearly has an image of each scene in her mind it doesn t always translate well to the pageAn example at the beginning hero and heroine meet and exchange a few words The whole thing is only a minute or so with them together Then we jump to the next chapter and we re hearing about how much the hero likes her and how people are imagining them as a couple and we re told how well he understands her personalityWhen did this happen Did we skip a few scenes and catch up with them later I think the author knew what she wanted to convey but I m not sure it worked for meAnother example there are scenes where the heroine is in the room one moment and then the next moment the men are talking about her Here I am wondering how they could be that rude but it turns out she d actually left the room and even though the author knew it she forgot to tell usThe men exchange a couple of sentences of conversation and then the heroine suddenly reappears carrying a tray of tea and cakes WHEN did she have time to prepare that Time is an odd thing in this bookI have no particular objections to plot or characterisation I think this book slots nicely into a very popular genre and that the author has promise even if it isn t uite realised etI also feel the need to warn people that this is historical romance not a fairy tale Some readers seemed to be confused by the title the blurb and the opening scene and expected a fantasy romanceNothing really objectionable here Review copy provided by NetGalley This is the first book in the series A Lady s Wish This is also my first book by Eileen Richards but won t be my last Our heroine Anne Townsend is poor and feels rather plan in looks With sisters to support she finds that she is feeling desperate and willing to do anythingwhich leads us to the Fairy Steps Anne makes a wish which finds her surrounded by several suitor Our hero Nathaniel Matthews has troubles of his own being the head of his family and with a trouble sum brother Nathaniel starts to see Anne in a different light too Although they both had reason that I felt were silly for not being together I did overall like the book Don t worry if Linux Networking Cookbook you think this story is all magic and such as it is not Hope thatou enjoy this book too A adorable catching funny thrilling and sooo sweet novel There is just one plot choice I don t embrace here and I would state it immediatly because this is a romance to be praised I would have reduced or simplified the antagonistic part of the story to be clear I d have cut down the traumas it felt a bit like a loop in the end Apart from this the rest is amazing I loved the characters all of them they are not excessive in any way they perfectly wear their roles there aren t false notes it s easy to fall into the story and be kept there wanting to know what happens next I adored the relationship between the protagonists the tension is skilfully built up and is not tiring at all the author manages to satisfy the reader expectations adopting a perfect timing for every turn and development Nathaniel the hero is so sweet protective and passionate he is thrillingly attractive but not overly dramatic or sullen The heroine Anne has the kind of personality I like to see in a female protagonist strong but also insecure very rational and practical on a general basis but with a bit of a dreamer in her as well responsible strongly witted and ironical A great work was made also in creating the side characters they are as interesting and fully portrayed as the protagonists I sympathised with pretty much all of them I obviously can t wait for Tony and Juliet s story and hopefully for Sophie s happy ending as well her growth is in fact very credible and promising They are all very different one to another and therefore very interesting for various reasons I ve also highly enjoyed the fairytale component was uite the charming twistEileen Richards style is amazing it s clean and measured as well as entertaining romantically very balanced and so good for daydreaming The romance definitely doesn t seem a debut novel Can t wait for I received an Advanced Reader Copy ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review FOR MORE REVIEWS CHECK IL PROFUMO DELLE PERGAMENE Lovely storyGood plot with just a smattering of fairy magic Nice easy read with interesting characters A new author for me but am anxious to read the rest of this series.

About kissing and Whenever they have an intimate moment someone catches them but the heroine thinks that she still is not ruined I don t think that would work that wayAnother problem I ve had is the transformation that undergoes the sisters from one chapter to the next The heroine s sisters are extremely opposite The oldest is selfish self centered manipulative and really unpleasant The Marcus Garvey younger is sweet mature comprehensive and the support of the protagonist but this is not true throughout the story suddenly the bad sister becomes a source of wisdom and an understanding one and theounger becomes an immature person that is kicked out of the room when according to her the fun begins and what can I say about the brother This character is always drunk and gambling and putting his sisters in mayor danger all along the story I don t know how or why at the end he is redeemed and becomes the perfect brother I don t think soBut the worst has been that I feel the story had been longer than it needs The conflict between the MC s has been silly and tiresome and it has been dragged for a really long time Add to that a pair of TSTL moments that suffer the heroine and at the end the romance loses all its strength Both MC s are blind deaf and stubborn and are the side characters who force them to make decisions I think the conflict between the MC s has been silly and the story has been too longI ve not liked it She s the not as attractive sister he s the wealthy grandson She is his grandmother s companion and her FRIENDLY ENEMIES younger very attractive sister is plotting to marry hisounger brother This hoped for wedding will solve all their financial problems they think He s there to put a stop to it There are wicked step brothers loan sharks a vicar who is not the least bit likable and his mother who is even worse Put them all together stir well and ou have a fun read I can t wait to read from Eileen RichardsAn Unexpected Wish was light cute and entertaining from beginning to end It had everything that I enjoy in a Regency Historical humour romance and a little bit of suspenseThere was so much humour surrounding Anne s sudden predicament being the centre of unwanted attention whilst simultaneously developing an attraction to Nathaniel with whom she is uite often at odds I loved Nathaniel in the story Despite his conflicting feelings about Anne and her family he is incredibly kind protective and good natured I enjoyed the banter between the couple and Nathaniel s little piues of jealousy added to the dramaAnne is also a great character She is strong willed and kind hearted but not as self assured as she could be and needs to be convinced that Nathaniel s feelings for her are realThe sub plot of danger and a threat to Anne and her family lurking in the background added suspense and excitement to the storyAn Unexpected Wish is going directly to my keep and reread shelfIt would also make a good title to giftrecommend to our mother or aunt if they prefer their regency romances along the lines of Georgette Heyer and less on the sensual sideThis title will be available from October 27th 2015 but I suggest And a Bottle of Rum you pre order it now UK Currently priced at 239Note For anyone who thinks this book is about fairies It s not Read the blurb again properly I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Net Galley I really enjoyed this book It was very well written and the characters were wonderful This is the first book by Eileen Richards that I have read and I cannot wait for This a cute and whimsical story about Anne Townsend who wants to have enough food and supplies to feed and clothed herounger sisters She decide to climb the fairy steps and make a wish She never knew it would change her life When Anne has three suitors and she doesn t know to handle all the attention Anne falls in love with Nathaniel Matthews but she feels the attraction is not feel It is so nice and sweet story I received a complimentary copy from the publisher thru NetGalley for an honest review This fact has no effect on my review in any way Also posted HEREThis is fairly good Regency romance fare and I m sure many fans of the subgenre will really enjoy it It has likeable characters though the mean beautiful sister has been DONE TO DEATH but at least she wasn t blonde a nice feel and all the things a person goes to the Regency romance subgenre forI did have a problem with the style though an.
