The Bride Takes a Groom (Avon Books) by Lisa Berne, named a Kirkus Best Book of the Year

One of my favorite compliments about The Bride Takes a Groom, the third book in my Penhallow Dynasty series, came from Hot Sauce Reviews:

“A blast to read. . . . All in all, there is something about this story that makes me grin and even laugh — it’s like the child of a good Eloisa James book and a Julia Quinn book, with sweet, emotional moments that nicely balance out the humor.”

A Kirkus Best Book of the Year!

Plus, it’s also a BookPage Best Romance of the Year, a Fresh Fiction “Fresh Pick,” and a Publishers Weekly “Big Title.” To top it all off, Booklist said:

“With perfectly polished prose, a rare gift for creating superbly rendered characters, and a sense of wit that rivals Georgette Heyer at her best, Berne gifts romance readers with the third sterling addition to her not-to-be-missed, Regency-set Penhallow Dynasty series.”

My cup runneth over!

“An elegant, poignant and joyful romance”

Thrilled to share the news that The Bride Takes a Groom has received a starred review from Kirkus!

Cover for The Bride Takes a Groom by Lisa Berne (Avon Books)In part, it says: “Berne’s third Penhallow title maintains the exquisite writing, lush emotion, and complex characters we’ve come to expect, this time with a heroine who is knocked back time and again but finds herself strengthened by the choices she makes, the people she helps along the way, and, to her pleasant surprise, the remarkable man beside her. An elegant, poignant, and joyful romance and a must-read for Regency fans.”
