“An extravagant confection of a book”

Of course it’s always absolutely wonderful to receive a glowing review of one’s book, but when one wins the praise of a self-described romance curmudgeon, then . . . wow!

Says the Our Coast Bookmonger:

Over the years, this book reviewer has developed a reputation as a curmudgeonly sort when it comes to romance novels. So imagine my astonishment when I picked up Engaged to the Earl, the fourth book in Spokane author Lisa Berne’s Penhallow Dynasty series, and found myself devouring it like a plateful of bonbons. Nary a cynical thought crossed my mind. Not one dismissive “harrumph” passed my lips.

Engaged to the Earl is an extravagant confection of a book. Set in the Regency period, it is amusing, detailed and lively. . . .

If you want a story that will make you chuckle, swoon and generally feel warm-hearted, Engaged to the Earl fits the bill.

“One of the most exciting new historical writers”

If you’ve been hanging out with me for any length of time, you know that I’m a huge Julia Quinn fan, and that her books have been a major, major inspiration to me. So you can imagine how I felt when she posted this on her Facebook page yesterday:

Yep! Incredibly happy, honored, proud, and grateful.
