I enjoyed this book. I love Aunt Gwen and her friends from the novella, “How to Stop a Wedding in 7 Days or Less”. I like Derek Saunders and his stepbrother Percival very much. Derek is a good man and trying to help his aunt with her somewhat fraudulent Lady Travelers Society and Assistance Agency. When India Prendergast threatens legal action for misleading her missing cousin Heloise, he decides to stall her by taking her to Paris to look for Heloise.

I couldn’t put this book down! The hardest part of writing a review for a book I loved is saying enough to entice you to read it without spoiling the story. When you read one of Regan’s books, you not only get a wonderful story, but accurate historical knowledge of the time period.

What a wonderful anthology! Sometimes in an anthology, there is one story I don’t like as much as the others, but NOT in this case. The four stories are all very good and original. I especially enjoyed the mix of aristocracy and commoners.

This is my favorite of Julia London’s The Highland Grooms series. Rabbie Mackenzie is a lost and broken soul after the battle at Culloden Moor that devastated the Highlands. He had not joined the rebels, but was sympathetic to their cause. While his family stayed out of it, much of their land and village was still destroyed by the English.
