    (3.5 stars) This is cute. It's short but gets everything developed to satisfaction. I hate to say "in the Jane Austen vein" but it is. True Janeites become up in arms when they hear this, but this little story by Allain pokes at the foibles and follies of a certain class of Regency soc...

    I wavered between 3 and 4 stars on this. I enjoyed it as a relaxing Sunday afternoon read, and appreciated its sweet good humor. But I always have trouble deciding on numbers of stars. The Celebrated Pedestrian is a sweet book with some charming gentle humor. The conflicts are muted...

    Suzanne's books are always a delight and they get better and better. This is a fun Regency romance with wonderful insight dealing with characterization. Often an author can accurately portray the main characters' inner workings, but Suzanne is spot on with everyone in the book! And the...

    I'm being a bit generous with my rating for this novel since the author's previous books were much better than the flow of this story. Four sets of couples eventually got together, which is quite a lot for such a short story. I felt that not enough time was given to each couple let alo...

    Pretty good. This was an enjoyable book, just some pleasant, light reading. The love stories were cute and sweet. My only complaint is that I wasn't completely involved in the romances; they didn't quite catch me up in them as I might have liked. I think the book was too brief for that...

    I got this book as a part of the Goodreads giveaway. It is a fun read, basically your chick-flick Victorian novel, but without much literary depth. You pretty much know what is going to happen by the first chapter. ...

    I know this is shocking, but like all of Allain's books... I loved it. It was quite as funny as her other two books, and I definitely laughed out loud a few times. I hope she keeps writing because it makes Christmas shopping so much easier. Look for this under the tree :) ...

    Great book. Great author! Makes me want to re-read Mr. Malcom's List. Similar playful attitude. ...

    Jane Austen feel...fun read! ...

    I didn't realize they actually had walking events! ...

    Featherweight reading with an extremely predictable plot. The characters were lightly developed. Too many modern attitudes and phrases to be anywhere near authentic Regency. ...

    A complete delight. The intro is quite amusing, and there are enough chuckles scattered thru out as well. You can't but like Sir Anthony Burke. ...

    Short and Sweet Regency. Allain is becoming one of my favorites. ...

    (3.5 stars) This is cute. It's short but gets everything developed to satisfaction. I hate to say "in the Jane Austen vein" but it is. True Janeites become up in arms when they hear this, but this little story by Allain pokes at the foibles and follies of a certain class of Regency soc...

    I wavered between 3 and 4 stars on this. I enjoyed it as a relaxing Sunday afternoon read, and appreciated its sweet good humor. But I always have trouble deciding on numbers of stars. The Celebrated Pedestrian is a sweet book with some charming gentle humor. The conflicts are muted...

    Suzanne's books are always a delight and they get better and better. This is a fun Regency romance with wonderful insight dealing with characterization. Often an author can accurately portray the main characters' inner workings, but Suzanne is spot on with everyone in the book! And the...

    I'm being a bit generous with my rating for this novel since the author's previous books were much better than the flow of this story. Four sets of couples eventually got together, which is quite a lot for such a short story. I felt that not enough time was given to each couple let alo...

    Pretty good. This was an enjoyable book, just some pleasant, light reading. The love stories were cute and sweet. My only complaint is that I wasn't completely involved in the romances; they didn't quite catch me up in them as I might have liked. I think the book was too brief for that...

    I got this book as a part of the Goodreads giveaway. It is a fun read, basically your chick-flick Victorian novel, but without much literary depth. You pretty much know what is going to happen by the first chapter. ...

    I know this is shocking, but like all of Allain's books... I loved it. It was quite as funny as her other two books, and I definitely laughed out loud a few times. I hope she keeps writing because it makes Christmas shopping so much easier. Look for this under the tree :) ...

    Great book. Great author! Makes me want to re-read Mr. Malcom's List. Similar playful attitude. ...

    Jane Austen feel...fun read! ...

    I didn't realize they actually had walking events! ...

    Featherweight reading with an extremely predictable plot. The characters were lightly developed. Too many modern attitudes and phrases to be anywhere near authentic Regency. ...

    A complete delight. The intro is quite amusing, and there are enough chuckles scattered thru out as well. You can't but like Sir Anthony Burke. ...

    I didn't realize they actually had walking events! ...

    Featherweight reading with an extremely predictable plot. The characters were lightly developed. Too many modern attitudes and phrases to be anywhere near authentic Regency. ...

    A complete delight. The intro is quite amusing, and there are enough chuckles scattered thru out as well. You can't but like Sir Anthony Burke. ...

    Short and Sweet Regency. Allain is becoming one of my favorites. ...

    (3.5 stars) This is cute. It's short but gets everything developed to satisfaction. I hate to say "in the Jane Austen vein" but it is. True Janeites become up in arms when they hear this, but this little story by Allain pokes at the foibles and follies of a certain class of Regency soc...

    I wavered between 3 and 4 stars on this. I enjoyed it as a relaxing Sunday afternoon read, and appreciated its sweet good humor. But I always have trouble deciding on numbers of stars. The Celebrated Pedestrian is a sweet book with some charming gentle humor. The conflicts are muted...

    Suzanne's books are always a delight and they get better and better. This is a fun Regency romance with wonderful insight dealing with characterization. Often an author can accurately portray the main characters' inner workings, but Suzanne is spot on with everyone in the book! And the...

    I'm being a bit generous with my rating for this novel since the author's previous books were much better than the flow of this story. Four sets of couples eventually got together, which is quite a lot for such a short story. I felt that not enough time was given to each couple let alo...

    Pretty good. This was an enjoyable book, just some pleasant, light reading. The love stories were cute and sweet. My only complaint is that I wasn't completely involved in the romances; they didn't quite catch me up in them as I might have liked. I think the book was too brief for that...

    I got this book as a part of the Goodreads giveaway. It is a fun read, basically your chick-flick Victorian novel, but without much literary depth. You pretty much know what is going to happen by the first chapter. ...

    I know this is shocking, but like all of Allain's books... I loved it. It was quite as funny as her other two books, and I definitely laughed out loud a few times. I hope she keeps writing because it makes Christmas shopping so much easier. Look for this under the tree :) ...

    Great book. Great author! Makes me want to re-read Mr. Malcom's List. Similar playful attitude. ...

    Jane Austen feel...fun read! ...
