Imagine my delight when one of my favorite romance authors released not one, not two, but THREE books in August! The Beatrice Hyde-Clare Mysteries series is available on Kindle Unlimited, and I devoured all of them within a fortnight despite being insanely busy. The intrepid, if diffident, Beatrice has joined the ranks of my cherished fictional friends.
A few years back, I discovered Lynn Messina’s Regency romances in her Love Takes Root series (which I adore). Now, she’s written a new trio of cozy Regency mysteries with a tantalizing, slow-bloom romance. Messina isn’t a stereotypical romance writer. She dives deep into her characters’ psyches and crafts strong female protagonists (always catnip for me). Plus, Messina is one of the few authors who makes me laugh out loud, and there was no shortage of chuckles as I enjoyed these books. This and Messina’s other Regency series are best if read in order.
