About sarahjwrites

I am embarking on a new adventure and trying to make my way in the world as a professional writer - Science fiction & crime mostly. I also like loads of really boring things like gardening, craft work and baking. Oh and I eat a lot.

“Penelope ( A Madcap Regency Romance ) (The Fairweather Sisters Book 1)” by Anya Wylde

Rating:   ****

Genre: Fiction: Romance

Read:  June 2020

Penelope Fairweather has been sent to London to seek her fortune (i.e. to snag a man of measure to marry). She is fortunate enough to have a sponsorship with a friend of her deceased mother to present her to society and escort her to the seasons events. Penelope is not exactly aristocratic timbre. She is pretty, but plain, clumsy, outspoken, is friendly with servants and highway men, and with her pet goat in tow, very much a country bumpkin. Will she be able to charm her society friends and win a husband.

“Penelope” is a fun, sometimes hilarious, sometimes silly read, which makes for marvellous, non-intellectually taxing entertainment during this time of COVID-19. Would make great holiday reading.
