      Another traditional regency this time from a new too me author - Dinah Dean. I'm very happy to say that I found it an enjoyable read too.

I do wish to thank you because this book was worth hunting down at used book stores. The story is sweet without being sappy, and full of dry wit that didn't battle with the sometimes serious emotions of the characters. The author sets the scenes very clearly, including the forbidding nature of the Lake Distric [...]
