    A very entertaining book

    Beautifully written, this emotional Regency romance pushed all the right buttons for me. Phoebe is no shrinking violet and when she is disowned by her family after a disasterous rejection by her fiance, she decides to take the road less travelled and join the Everton Domestic Society. Through them, she learns that she has friends who care about her and she earns her place with them. Not afraid of hard work, Phoebe also learns that she doesn’t need to rely on her family to meet her needs when she puts her organisational skills into operation. Called on to carry out an assignment at her deceased best friend’s home, Phoebe arrives with the flamboyant lady Honoria Chervil to take over the running of Markus, Lord Castlereagh’s home. They find chaos of the worst kind and the Lord himself is heavily under the influence of alcohol. Whilst Phoebe is shocked at what she finds, nevertheless she has a duty to perform and immediately sets to work. She very quickly earns the respect of the few remaining staff and eventually the Lord himself, but working in such close proximity with an already wounded man comes with risks. One would expect the male of the species to be able to cope with pain and loss albeit stoically, but one forgets that every individual is different and Markus loses himself in the bottom of a bottle. Bit by bit Phoebe makes inroads into the mess and with Honoria’s sense of humour to lighten the darkest moments, she solves all of the problems, except for the one involving her heart. Sticking to the rules, Phoebe chooses to leave Rosefield behind and return to Everton House. Apart from Phoebe’s obnoxious brother and ex fiance, I loved the characters in this book and the way the story came together. The last chapter was hilarious and joyous and exciting, bringing all the main players together in a delightful way. Some of the characters in this book appeared in another series, however this is a standalone and comes to a very satisfactory ending. I received a copy of this book through Netgalley and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    Another Great Book By A.S. Fenichel!

    Markus Flammel's life is spiraling out of control. Constantly drunk to avoid confronting the grief that has haunted him the past two years since his beloved wife Emma died in childbirth, he does not even know what day it is. He has fired most of his staff in a drunken rage and his daughter has not spoken a word at the age of 2 and is being raised by the few staff members that are left. His mother hires a lady from the Everton Domestic Society to help but can she fix this pit of despair? Phoebe cannot believe the state of Markus Flammel. She had known him as her late friend Emma's husband but only as an acquaintance. Emma's bright light had clearly been extinguished when she passed as her home had fallen into shambles. Determined to honor Emma's memory, Phoebe gets to work restoring the place and the people in it. But things go a little too far when she works on restoring Markus to a sober, responsible, and dedicated father. When I got the e-mail that access had been granted for A.S. Fenichel's latest book, I squealed. I could not wait to get started on this book and I was even more pleased as I read when characters from her previous series, Forever Brides, made appearances. I love and highly recommend the Forever Bride series and each of those books can be read as standalones, which I imagine will be the same for the future of the Everton Domestic Society series. Having read those books, it was like running into an old friend. But there were brief descriptions provided in case the reader had not read those books. Much like the previous books that I had read by her, the characters develop very well throughout the book. They are also often stubborn but with hearts of gold. Aside from that, these characters have very different personalities from the previous sets of characters. I loved how she incorporated Elizabeth, the toddler daughter, into the story and she was my favorite character as she turned out to be the glue for everyone. I also loved Honoria, she reminded me of Vladimir in the animated movie Anastasia: bubbly, intuitive, and supportive. I would definitely recommend this book for romance readers who like to root for the underdogs. Much like the other books that I have read by A. S. Fenichel, the romance is complex yet lovely. I would recommend this book also for readers who love HEAs and overcoming large obstacles. On the other hand, I would not recommend this book for those who may be offended or triggered by the following: alcoholism, addiction, spousal death, grief, sexually explicit scenarios, violence, and foul language. Please note: an electronic ARC of this book was generously provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I Loved It

    Phoebe Hallsmith has been disowned by her family, because she chooses to work for the Everton Domestic Agency. She spent the years when she would have been looking for a husband, looking after her grandmother. She did have one offer, but he cried off the engagement. She sees herself as definitely on the shelf. She is very good at the work she does for the agency, helping different families. This latest job involves someone she knows so it will be hard to be objective. Marcus Flammel lost his beloved wife in childbirth. Since then he has tried his hardest to drown his sorrows in alcohol. The rest of his family have reached the end of their patience . He needs to sober up before he loses everything. A lovely story showing just how strong a woman could be even when put under a lot of pressure from family and society. Good strong characters with lots of emotional content. Our hero has to face more than a few hard facts about his behaviour. This is part of a series of stand alone books with family links. I loved it. You will need the tissues occasionally.

    What a Wonderful Book!

    For the same reason that Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up took the world by storm, so too should A Lady’s Honor appeal to the inner-organizer in all of us. Drunk and disaffected since the death of his wife two years earlier, Markus Flammel’s stately country home is in disarray. Enter, then, Phoebe Hallsmith, well-bred but independent and in service, she plays chatelaine to her childhood acquaintance, and soon sets his life to rights. But the more he becomes accustomed to her presence, the more he comes to realize that nothing in his life will ever be to rights without her… What a wonderful book! Such an unusual premise told so thrillingly, and with such panache. You will be breathless in anticipation for the next in the series! -- Rachel Hyland * This review appears in the April 2018 issue of Romantic Intentions Quarterly.
