    One thought on “Belle”

    1. Belle must find a husband but being not as pretty as her other sisters, she has resigned herself to a loveless marriage with her cousin. She does fall in love and her intended turns out to be quite a surprise.There is also a hunt for some boxes her father had had made which Belle suspects contains money.The appearance of a family member who has leapt out of the woodwork at the first smell of money dismays the young lady and it falls to Belle to sort out the nightmare so that the inheritance rema [...]

    2. With Amy, the eldest, betrothed, it is Belle's turn to find a husband. Belle prefers books to the whirl of balls and parties so intends to accept the offer of a cousin of theirs. This would solve his financial concerns, but would be a loveless match for both of them. Things get confusing when the village curate, who has been in love with her sister Hope, helps her out of friendship. That friendship is tested as are sisterly bonds when fate and a bit of poetry intervene. As enjoyable a read as Am [...]

    3. Back to good after a relatively disappointing first book in the series. Belle is sensible. Her love is not a rake or a playboy - he's a curate! They both love books. What could be better?We learn ever more about the father, and see mom spreading wings now that her hated husband is gone - but in such a way that is not very favorable to her daughters. Wow.On to the next. I'm enjoying my little binge of Regency before I tackle some weightier books.

    4. Rather boringThe book is average and I thought rather boring. It was hard for me to not let my mind wander. The plot was good enough. Just not enough intrigue or excitement for me.

    5. Very Good ReadThis is a very good book. I very much enjoyed the anticipation of wondering how everything would work out. You will have to read it for yourself to find out how. Clean book no sex even mentioned.

    6. Cute, but too similar to the first book. I mean really-how many sisters have to fall in love with a sister’s beau?

    7. Belle is the plain sister of the six and thought she would have trouble finding a husband. Find one she does though and from a most unlikely source.

    8. Belle!!I loved this one quite a bit! 5 stars because I can see myself rereading it. I also love quite a bit that women named Belle/Bella are somehow always bookworms???? So great.

    9. This is the second book of the series and I liked it more than the first. A lot of secrets are reviled in this book. So many mysteries to uncover. The theme still is while one sister thinks she is meant for a certain man, it is another sister that is better suited. There is more whit in this book- I don't know if that is because of the author writing the story that way or the personalities of the characters shining through. I'm glad to spend more time with all the characters and look forward to [...]

    10. I enjoyed Amy so much that I read Belle, liked it so much that I bought Connie. Great portrayal of Regency life.

    11. pleasant clean regency - 3.25*This is the second of 6 books that follow the 6 Allamomte sisters as they find husbands in rural England during the Regency. I suspect it was when writing this one that the author got the idea to have an ongoing storyline about the mother that runs through all 6. That storyline is awful. I did not enjoy it in any of the individual books and once I finished all six I just cringed at the outcome. Fortunately for this book it hasn't become truly wretched yet. I think t [...]
