GIFTS GONE ASTRAY Reviews
I note the reviews that contain spoilers.
5 Hearts out of 5 from TJ at The Romance Studio
"A truly wondrous tale of gift-giving, misunderstandings, and unexpected love. There were blushing beauties, scholarly studs, nefarious schemers, mischievous children, and kindly uncles all wrapped in Ms. Banche's prim and proper Regency prose, that once opened revealed a sweetly racy story that was perfect. The writing was vivid and captured the time exactly."
5 stars, Recommended Read from Icy Snow at Two Lips Reviews
"...may be a sweet romance, but it does have its racy moments. Double entendres abound. There are very neat turns of phrase...They...prove that one may write an arousing tale without being graphically explicit."
5 stars from Lindsay Townsend (To Touch the Knight)
"Gifts Gone Astray by Linda Banche is a delightful romantic comedy of misunderstandings, ghastly relations (old and young) a sinister suitor and two very different books sent as gifts to the 'wrong' people."
4 out of 5 stars from The Romance Reviews (Contains spoilers)
"Linda Banche's new novella, GIFTS GONE ASTRAY, is a charming Regency love story, which I enjoyed very much...so put your feet up for a few hours and enjoy!"
4 out of 5 stars from Emery at Romantic Historical Fiction Lovers
"Gifts Gone Astray is an entertaining romantic comedy of errors that I highly recommend for those who, like me, need the indulgent pleasure of a good Regency romp every now and then."
4 out of 5 stars from Romance Writers Reviews (Contains spoilers)
3.5 Stars from Long and Short Romance Reviews (LASR)
"A Regency screwball comedy? Linda Banche’s latest romantic offering, Gifts Gone Astray, comes pretty darn close...The comedy that runs throughout the book will have you laughing out loud (I certainly did) ...If you’d like to experience laughter as the hero and heroine fall in love, this is the book to read! "
3 Stars from RT Book Reviews (Contains spoilers)
"A sweetly written historical romance. The story is about two lonely people trying to fit into Regency England’s strict societal structure, but not finding a place they feel comfortable until they meet each other."
3 Roses out of 5 at Romancing the Book
"Ms. Banche, has a good story here and one that is enjoyable...overall a good light read."
