Miss Tavistock's Mistake


Must read 🏆

Thoroughly enjoyable! A witty Regency romp that will have you smiling and swooning throughout.

I have adored Linore Rose Burkard for years and am always excited when she releases a new book. Miss Tavistock's Mistake is by far one of my favorites! It's so funny that I was laughing out loud in places.

The story unfolds as Miss Tavistock is brought back into contact with the man she has long been betrothed to, thanks to an agreement by their mothers. However, when Miss Tavistock and Captain Rempeare are face to face after many years of him being away at sea, she is quite unsure if he is truly thean for her. So, she don's the alias 'Lady X' as a way to be around the Captain and make out his character. 

The Captain, on the other hand, is quite frustrated at his inability to lay eyes on his intended. However the beautiful, but somewhat frustrating Lady X, seems to be constantly popping up wherever he finds himself. 

Eventually Miss Tavistock realizes that she may have made a mistake in tricking the Captain the way she has. He is not the blackard she believed him to be. In fact, he might just be wonderful. But is it too late repair what she has done? Or is Miss Tavistock's mistake irreparable?

Burkard has a wonderful way of writing characters that makes you feel as if you could be friends with them, if only they were real. The pages come alive and I get lost in her stories as if I could walk outside and find myself in the world she writes about. I didn't want this story to end, yet I read it quickly because I could wait to see what happened next! It's witty and charming, with flawed characters that you can't help but love.

Miss Tavistock's Mistake is thoroughly enjoyable and I can't wait for the book in the series!
