Review roundup!

Lovely to see the warm fuzzies for The Redemption of Philip Thane! Cover image: THE REDEMPTION OF PHILIP THANE by Lisa Berne (Avon Books)

Booklist Starred Review “A Regency riff on the movie Groundhog Day . . . brilliantly enhanced by a stellar cast of characters . . . and generous measures of the author’s wry wit and wondrous sense of whimsy.” —John Charles, Booklist, starred review

“Copious humor and heart . . . expertly crafted.” Publishers Weekly

“Sparkling . . . Lisa Berne has created a perfect balance between a fantastical tale and an animated adventure into self-discovery and redemption. She has breathed life into a common theme and married it with intelligent, savvy dialogue and cunning unforgettable characters.” —Reading Rebel Reviews  

“The hero was a real piece of work at the beginning of The Redemption of Philip Thane, so there was no way I was putting the book down! . . . If you like reading about a rake being redeemed and references to mythology, folklore, and Hamlet then this book is for you!” A Bad Wallflower

“There is a lot to love about this book — the premise is a great one, based on a great film. . . . Philip’s turn for the better is not a rapid one; he has to hit rock-bottom before he can rebuild himself. That’s satisfying, and his redemption doesn’t feel feigned. It is an earned change, one which fundamentally reforms him. . . . A fun story.” All About Romance
