    Intriguing and dramatic!

    In a delightful Downton Abbey meets Pride and Prejudice mashup, Miller weaves a story with everything we love about Lizzie Bennet and Mr. Darcy in a Matthew and Mary Crawley-esque drama with rich layers and depth! Catherine Winthrop is a simply enchanting heroine. She is compassionate and kind, loyal, devoted, and long-suffering. Jonathan Carlew is an upright man of faith and integrity. His compassion for everyone in his care is admirable. Although lovers’ spats based almost solely on miscommunication tend to rub me the wrong way, the strict etiquette of the Regency era and the unexpected demise of the responsible party in this instance earn this charming story a pass. Winning Miss Winthrop raises the bar for Regency romance with depth and intrigue to spare and I highly recommend it! I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.

    Winning Miss Winthrop by Carolyn Miller

    Winning Miss Winthrop #1 Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope by Carolyn Miller 1816, Gloucestershire and Bath, England…. Catherine Winthrop is an enchanting, compassionate and kind, loyally devoted and long-suffering (she has to be with her mother!) godly woman. I was pleasantly surprised by the growth of character and faith she developed, evident in the way she carries herself and deals with those around her...especially her mother. However, she carries a deep wound of the heart that I could “feel” as she tries to put on a smile for those around her. Will she ever find love again that will heal her broken, shattered heart? Jonathan “Jon” Carlew is an honorable man of faith, integrity and compassionate for all in his care. He suddenly finds himself thrust into the role as head of the Winthrop family as the Baron and takes his responsibilities very seriously and strives to preserve the family’s legacy. He does have one problem though, he can’t seem to express his love for a certain young woman. She as well, is unable to express hers for the man she loves. Maybe if they would actually talk...without their respective mothers interference...and air past hurts and misunderstandings they could possibly resolve their estrangement. I enjoyed the descriptions of the masquerade ball and the dancing. It certainly was an “eye-opener” for a couple of the characters and could bring about more problems for a certain person. I was delighted to see Lavinia and Nicholas, from The Elusive Miss Ellison, at different times throughout the book. It is like seeing “old friends”. I enjoyed Catherine’s Aunt Drusilla and General Whitby and found them to be lovable characters which soon became favorites. This is a delightful story filled with family drama, some unforeseen surprises, hope, faith...I especially appreciate the inspirational elements woven throughout the story and the importance of faith to the characters, romance, and redemption. ~I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author (no monetary gain were exchanged), this is my honest review~

    SOOO good!!

    Ms. Miller has done it again! At once, THRILLED me to the core with her descriptions, deep characters, and the ups and downs of their joys and regrets, while all the while teaching a few lessons we should all learn well: "Trusting God with the outcome of your story" and "Forgiveness, even when the sins against you seem unforgivable." I don't know how she does it, but each new novel this author releases seems to focus on EXACTLY what I, myself, am dealing with and what I need to hear. That being said, this storyline put me in mind of Jane Austen's "Persuasion" (my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE Jane Austen novel!) and I LOVED it! Lord Winthrop (a.k.a. Mr. Carlew) and Catherine find themselves at odds with each other when the death of Miss Winthrop's father throws them together after years apart, following a painful case of "love-lost" (...or is it?) Ms. Miller is SUCH a talented author. I know I've said this before (in nearly EVERY review I've written on her novels), but I've just gotta say it once more... One of my FAVORITE authors EVER!! Her books NEVER disappoint and they always hold fast to the truths of God's Word that are so VITAL in our own daily lives! In conclusion: If you have to read ONE book this year, I advise that it be one penned by Ms. Miller. ANY of them will do! They are all SO good!

    To Love Again. . .

    Winning Miss Winthrop by Carolyn Miller is the first in the Regency Brides Series A Promise of Hope. Catherine Winthrop is our heroine and Jonathan Carlew is our hero. They loved each other in the past and the story is how they relearn to love each other in the present. I loved this book. It had a great flow, I enjoyed reading it and the pace to me was perfect. I felt I was in Bath,England and was attending the events with the characters. To me this story reminded me of Persuasion by Jane Austen. Parts of the story were set in Bath, two people who loved each other were separated by someone else, and they eventually came back together. I love Persuasion and enjoyed finding the similarities. If like me you love Regency stories you will love this book. I highly recommend Winning Miss Winthrop and all of Caroline Miller’s books. I received this book from the publisher and was not required to write a review.
