    1. In the simplest of terms, this story is a Mary Sue historical romance It is a light read on par with Nancy Drew, but without any of the nostalgic charm In fact, it has in common with the original Nancy Drew novels than I am comfortable thinking about.Phillip Peartree, Duke of Bartlett, is scarred and half deaf thanks to a firearms accident He is full of O woe is me for I am unsightly angst, because no pretty girl would want to marry him EXCEPT WAIT, YOU RE A DUKE, I MEAN COME ON.Lady Amelia Par [...]


    2. I love the titles of this series play on words from the Christmas carol, Partridge in a Pear Tree, almost as much as I love the stories themselves In this story, the characters are well drawn and likeable I admired Caroline s marching with her husband and soldiers in Napoleon s army What an adventure and how disappointing that she had to return home after her husband s death Although the story was written to entertain, I loved learning new things The plot is a bit predictable After all, it s a r [...]


    3. I loved this charming story and read it in one sitting What a delight as the story begins in a bookstore with introduction to Phillip Peartree, Tenth Duke of Bartlett He needed something new to read, something to help him relax and forget the depression weighing him down ever since he d inherited his burdensome title There is an inauspicious collision in the bookstore between Phillip Peartree and Lady Amelia Partridge at which moment the reader simultaneously discovers the sparks of romance tuck [...]


    4. Never say never in love The Duke Philip had always dreamed of settling down with a good woman and living a peaceful life, but a hunting accident shattered that dream Scarred and nearly deaf, he is resigned to spending life alone, but hope shows up in the form of Lady Amelia She is a hard worker with no time for frivolities She spends most of her time educating the poor children in the city The rest of her time is spent in secret Unfortunately, it s a secret that she believes will drive Philip aw [...]


    5. This was a wonderfully funny and whimsical read Perfect for a rainy day or a snowy one as the events take place during the Christmas Holidays , this book will draw you in and take you on a truly romantic ride This is also a very clean and sweet story There isn t even a first kiss The author puts her characters first, and leaves the rest alone One of the things I really enjoyed about this book was that the Hero was not the typical regency romantic hero Not only was he scarred which yes I have see [...]


    6. This was another quick read The novella is just 62 pages so it s easily read in 1 sitting This book didn t wow me but I think it is because it was just too short to develop the kind of relationship and interactions I would have liked to have seen.The main characters share a love of books I loved this quote from the first chapter So he lived vicariously through the characters in his books They were his friends Although he d already read nearly every title on the shelves, he d come to this quiet l [...]


    7. A slight but sufficient story of two people finding each other.But really REALLY Phillip Peartree, Duke of Bartlett REALLY It s hard to take a brooding, handsome, deaf stranger seriously if his name gives you the giggles.My favorite part of this book was the obvious love of reading that pervades everything The characters meet in a library She s a tutor He picks books associated with good memories Later, when she fell ill, Grandfather would go to her chambers and read to her, his gentle voice car [...]


    8. It can be difficult for a historian to enjoy a Regency romance, because it s difficult finding one that s even close to historically accurate Author Patricia Kiyono has captured the flavor of the Regency the manners and s in this sweet novella, despite a few historical slips in the background details.If you enjoy likeable characters, a gentle plotline, a developing relationship, and a clean read, you ll likely enjoy this short If you re the historically inclined sort, be warned there are some p [...]


    9. MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO MEI really enjoyed this light hearted, clean read regency story I found the characters to be charming, the interaction heartwarming and the dialog open and honest Phillip Peartree, Duke of Bartlett, feels he is repulsive after a hunting accident where a misfire caused him to lose most of his hearing and scar his face Lady Amelia Partridge has no real interest in the social scene and is a sweet and giving woman who is teaching children and adults their letters and how to read [...]

    11. This was a short and sweet read My main issue with it is that it s TOO short There definitely needs to be some meat to the story According to my computer tablet, it was only 57 I think pages long I m used to reading beautiful stories that are well over 200 pages There is a slight sense of chemistry between the two main characters, but there s really not a lot of great dialogue At least not enough dialogue anyway I d like to see interaction, perhaps some humor, and definitely some action.The a [...]


    12. I gave book four stars only because I wished it would have been longer This is my first read for this author and I do plan to follow her This was a sweet refreshing book Not even a kiss but an introduction to two caring individuals Theirs love of books brought them together as it has for me with many new friends I highly recommend this novella I enjoyed the story and although I see some reviewers were disturbed by incorrect period descriptions I was not I enjoy the book for it whole not it bits [...]


    13. I know a lot of people travel around the holidays Be sure to have a copy of this book It will certainly help the time to go by quickly I finished this book in a few hours.I did not want to put it down It was a sweet, clean romance.I thought the characters were wonderfully developed which is sometimes not well done in novellas put Patricia Kiyono mastered it with this story.I will be reading it again closer to the holidays.


    14. The relationship between the Duke and Lady Amelia was a fast paced read great for a rainy day Throughout the story the different problems each had to face on their own made their lives understandable I really liked these two, there was not very much plot because of the book being so fast paced But ms Kiyono managed to write a good historical romance.


    15. Very short, quick read about Amelia Patridge and Phillip Peartree, the Duke of Bartlett A decent read for someone that is short on time Though there wasn t much of a plot line and the story seemed to jump from situation to situation Would have liked a little depth to the characters as well as the story line All in all for a quick novella it was a nice sweet story


    16. Short, too I would have preferred a bit conflict between hero heroine than a misunderstanding, and perhaps a minor subplot But I really like a flawed hero even if it s due to a hunting accident Amelia s independent spirit was a nice touch Philip and Amelia were both suited to each other, and that made the reading pleasant for the Christmas season.


    17. I received this free book for an honest review I simply loved this book It had such a sweet storyline and was wonderful to read about the overall goodness in people The main characters meet in a library and the loves of books is in essence what brings them together but their kindness towards others makes them find each other I highly recommend this book.


    18. A lot of fun to read I won this book in a contest, but I ve discovered that anything by Patricia Kiyono is worth purchasing The book was fun to go through and easy to follow The characters were easy to get along with just enough drama to make it believable I recommend this for anyone who enjoys a cute book and the main character loved books as much as we do


    19. Somewhere between short story and novella this is a feel good story about love conquering all of the defects and shortcomings that might discourage lesser people but the hero and heroine are just so deserving.


    20. premise was interesting but her writing style is not very accomplished n rather spoiled my enjoyment of what could otherwise hv bee a nice story.


    21. Short story, the cover is misleading The characters have minor flaws and the world they live in can be dastardly to anything that disrupts the social circles they are born to Easy read.


    22. I love the author s take on a popular Christmas rhyme It is a well put together plot and fluently written and I read this in one sitting and was sorry to say goodbye to the characters.



    23. This is a very fast read, only 60 pages It is a sweet little book to read in between novels It was easy to guess the ending but still nice.


    24. Patricia Kyono has a wonderful writing style that I thoroughly enjoy This book, as expected, did not disappoint.
