  • My Musings

    Thanks go to the publisher and Net-Galley for the complimentary copy of Everything a Lady is Not by Sawyer North for the purpose of reading and reviewing by publication. My opinions are my own, and no one has influenced them. Everything a Lady is Not is a lovely Regency romance that took me to Regency London and the countryside with a new and refreshing twist. The pacing engaged me from the first page and kept me enthralled until the last. Lucy Lockett, AKA Lady Margaret, is a delightful heroine, and one I became vested in from my first introduction. Her heartbreaking back story touched me and had me wanting her to find her way in the new world she finds herself thrown into with any warning. Mr. North manages to write of her struggle with the emotions a woman would feel when facing an environment so different than what one has experienced in the past. That’s somewhat unexpected since it’s not common for a man to write romance. Henry Beaumont is a dashing hero with all the characteristics I enjoy most in Regency romance. I loved his willingness to help Lucy learn to navigate the haute ton. I enjoyed his confusion when he develops feelings for Lucy and the pain of believing he must help her find a husband when he wants her for his own. The romance between the couple is lovely and as a sweetness to it. There’s plenty of the sexual tension between them, an aspect of historical romance I love. Unlike most romances, I feared there might be no happy ending for them since I couldn’t imagine how it could happen. Kudos to Mr. North for building that fear. It added greatly to my enjoyment! If you like historical romance set in the Regency era with endearing characters and a unique plot, then you will enjoy Everything a Lady is Not as much as I did. This is the first book I’ve read by Mr. North. I plan to go back and read the his first one. Happy reading!

  • O.K. read but a bit of a letdown

    After reading the blurb for this book I was greatly intrigued. I thought that this sounded like a very clever and emotional romance. After reading it though I admit to feeling a bit let down. I did feel that the story delivered as promised. It was how some things played out that bugged me. As for the highs: I really liked Lucy, the story concept had a fun feel to it and the sort of fairy tale air to Lucy's history had great appeal for me. As for the lows: Henry. I wanted to like him. I truly did. But in my opinion he was no hero. I hated that the man you were supposed to want Lucy to be with never had her back. Not only was he romantic interest, he was supposed to be her friend! Still, if this doesn't bother you, this was not a bad read. I am choosing to post a sincere review.

  • Witty and Snappy

    A witty and snappy read. From the first moment Lucy and Henry meet as children they have used words as sword play. When they meet as adults they have only sharpened their skills. The story is fast paced as they have a limited time to get Lucy prepared to face society. Henry as the unenviable task of being her tutor. With the mean girls and other roadblocks in their way navigating becomes treacherous. There is also the feelings they have for each other that they are both desperately trying to deny. It takes a little faith to reach for that happy ending.

  • Delightful

    A heroine and hero that meet as children and then years later, she as a thief and he with bow street. Perfect for a love match you say? A delightful, fast paced tale that brings these two together in a most unique say. Their quick banter and situation made for an exciting read to see how it would all turn out. This is the second book I have read by this author and I really enjoyed it!

  • Brilliant Series Starter

    4.5 Stars! Born the second son from a second wife, Henry Beaumont is cast out from his home as soon as his older brother takes on the family title. Thankfully, his older sister is more than happy to raise Henry alongside her own children. On one occasion, a girl comes to visit his sister’s home with her father. The brief connection over Robinson Crusoe left a lasting impression. Over a decade later, Henry meets the girl again, except this time everything has changed. Mr. North brings forth a brilliant plot in the first book in his new Bow Street Beau’s series. He gives us a Pygmalion-type story wherein the lost granddaughter of a duchess needs his expert help to become a lady. Lucy is a fantastically refreshing character in that she sees how hypocritical the rules of the upper ten thousand are. There is a whole conversation where she points all of this out. I was actually cheering her on aloud as I read. I love it when I can get that involved in a story! While the love story of Henry and Lucy is a slow burn, there is more than enough intrigue to keep you flipping the pages. Plus, since this is the first in the series, we are introduced to a host of secondary characters. While there are two other Bow Street Beaus, there is also The Dowager Duchess of Ramsbury. She is an absolute firecracker as Lucy’s grandmother. While she is only related to Lucy, I hope Mr. North will include her in upcoming stories. I highly recommend Everything a Lady is Not and can’t wait for more of this series. If you want to check out more of Mr. North’s historical romance, give Fair Weather Enemies a read. I received Everything a Lady is Not for free. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
