    One thought on “Boston Tangle: Regency Comes to America”

    1. Each book is better than the lastI loved this book. It is definitely distinctly itself despite some characters from previous books. Drusilla's voice is very much her own, and Sir Clive is rehabilitated, almost. Though the books are well written, the Kindle formatting leaves something to be desired, regularly splitting sentences in half as if they were new paragraphs. This is a small quibble. My only regret is that I have now read all Lown's Regency novels so far.
