Without them, I might never have gotten the Prince. I had already taken a flat on the lovely old Île S. Louis. Certainly there was absolutely nothing to indicate there might be deeper darker strains to their lives they might be hiding. And I am normally sensitive about people. I found Harry was practically a next-door neighbor, living at the extreme and very chic downriver tip of the Quai de Bourbon; while I like a peasant only lived-though on the sunny side, it is true-at the corner of the Quai d’Orléans and the rue le Regrattier. I really did think of them as that perfect American family.

Sara’s heart throbbed heavily as she hastened toward the meadow. Underfoot, the rank grass was uncomfortably long. It grabbed at her skirts while water trapped in the earth moistened her slippers. She was unaware of the beauty of the meadow, with swallows swooping and soaring in the azure arch of sky, hung with puffy white clouds. Tall rows of willows dropped their branches over the stream. The grass was spangled with daisies and foxglove and flax flowers, nodding in the breeze.

When Sara Word's long-lost fiance returns six years later, his brother Haldimer, who had been the object of Sara's secret desires, is strangely anxious for the two former lovers to reunite
from earth
I read every Joan Smith Regency that I can get my hands on. Is she as good as Georgette Heyer? Not quite, but if you like traditional regencies that are clean, then she's pretty dependable. Smith has been a prolific author with many books to her name. The quality can be uneven. As traditional regencies, they follow the accepted pattern and formula...no re-inventing the wheel here in most of them. I have read dozens of her books and I have yet to encounter one that I regret reading. There are a few I feel ambivalent about (more so her contemporary novels), and several that I liked mildly, but will never read again, but also many that I truly enjoyed and will probably read again sometime in the future. There are also several that I adore and will devour a number of times.

I liked this novel. (Apparently more than the previous reviewer.) I will probably read it again some day in the future when I have forgotten the story. The sister-in-law was annoying...but many regencies have a vulgar or difficult counterpoint to the heroine. The relationships ended up in a tangle that had to be sorted out....it is a regency romance, after all. A good read for Smith fans, or traditional regency readers.
Laws of Consanguinity

This story would never have happened as it was illegal for a brother(in-law) to marry his 'sister'. I found it very interesting that the author made a point of using the word "Consanguinity" very pointedly in the story. that makes me go... hmmm


Out of the 4 degrees of illegal consanguinity this relationship is a first in line. I understand that Britain has since changed this law but at the time of this novel it was in full effect. In addition, Canada was a full legal colony of England so the same laws would apply.

All that aside, the story itself - a good premise- was so very annoying. I'm not fond of stupidity and hate it even more when it is tolerated. The sister-in-law should have been put in her place (*i.e. back in Canada ) the minute she acted like a complete, uncouth mushroom. Barring a good set down a slap down would have been useful.

I did thoroughly enjoy Swithin. I find a good, silly fop can add some fun to any story if handled well.

I have most of JS's books on Kindle and love her work but this one didn't cut it for me based on the details rather than the plot.
with many of the usual tropes of the genre, including misunderstandings, Spoiler Alert: an unexpected return and a misleading elopement.
This book was just OK for me. It seemed like the two main characters were having the same conversation but just in a different setting.
Joan Smith has been one of my favorite Regency authors for years and this is a good example of her work. I was so happy to discover her on Kindle so I could get some of her books on mine.

Joan smith has a great sense of the absurd. I laughed out loud reading this.
This story was about the jilted Sara thought her intended was either drowned or went to the America. But when she found Lord Peter came back after six years of disappearance as a widower with two sons and a sister-in-law, she found she had to let other people know that she had never loved Lord Peter, nor he with her. However, trying to convince this fact to others proved to be more difficult than she thought, for everyone else had intention of playing match-makers. Plot got complicated when she discovered she cared more for his brother, Lord Rufus, and he with her, but neither knew how to break away from this sticky charade.

I have always enjoyed Ms. Smith's books, but not this one. This started out nicely, the beginning two-third of the book went smoothly enough, but the last one-third was absolutely, unbearably tedious and uninspiring. There were too many characters for one thing, hero and heroine were weakly portrayed was another, but the sister-in-law was a total vulgar hoyden and yet no one gave her a set down, added up to be a frustrating read. The only positive point was that the cover of the book was very nicely done, deserves a special mentioning.
I loved this silly story of heroes and heroines, love and laughter. Not since Heyer has such convoluted comedy kept on entertaining right to the end.
