Three Little Matchmakers in The Regency Brides Collection
By Susanne Dietze
A Trio of Delights!
Review by Carrie Fancett Pagels
I am an unabashed Susie Dietze fan, and I wasn't disappointed!
5 Stars for this Novella!
Set at Staffordshire, England 1817, this is an adorable story! Miss Caroline Dempsey was close childhood friends with the new Earl of Marsden’s sister. When Caroline’s friend, Esther, and her husband die, their children are left with their uncle Henry Graves and move to Marsden Hall. The daughter of a parson, Caroline grew up nearby and spent a lot of time on the estate. She had a big crush on Henry. But when she becomes governess, she wonders what kind of man he has become.
In the British aristocratic tradition, Henry believes the children would benefit from boarding school. But Caroline has other ideas. She is looking at the needs of the kids. Family needs to be first. The children feel the same way. They take matters into their own hands with disastrous results.
Unfortunately, I did not get to read the rest of the novellas in The Regency Brides Collection yet! But I’m longing to do so as they all look wonderful and by some of my favorite authors! I downloaded my copy from NetGalley and am under no obligation to post a positive review.
This book will be available in large print hard-cover format from Thorndike Press, Gale division, in February 2018.
