I was delighted to receive notification from The Romance Studio review site that Lady Chamberly’s Choices has earned a five-star review. Here’s what the reviewer had to say:
I wasn’t so sure about the tone of this book based on the blurb and first several pages but it really is a lovely story. I don’t want to give away the surprising plot but I will say that it is unusual and inventive. Eliza and Chamberly are well written characters who carry themselves with grace and honor. Eliza is courageous and resilient in the face of a life-changing event. Ms. Mathews weaves a tale of suspense and intrigue while telling a story of healing. From beginning to end this book is full of twists and turns. The plot is fast-paced and I read the story in one sitting. The story does contain one not quite consensual scene (touching but no rape) but the subsequent encounters between Eliza and Chamberly are romantic, tender and sensual. The book is so much more than that one scene and I’m still amazed at what a beautiful love story this is. I highly recommend this historical romance.
For any writer, it’s a thrill to learn that a reader enjoyed your story. Beyond that, to receive the highest accolade from a reviewer is especially gratifying. Thanks to The Romance Studio and to their reviewer.
