I admit I haven’t read all of Shakespeare’s works and it’s been years since I read any, but I am a fan of his comedies and for some reason I really enjoy reading adaptations and retellings of them. Combine that with my favourite genre (I love Regency Era novels - can you tell?) and I was sure to love this series 🤗 In fact, I absolutely adored this story by Martha Keyes! I think it’s my favourite so far. She kindly provided me with an ARC and I did not want to put it down! Whilst you probably don’t have to read the books of the series in order, it would definitely make more sense if you do, since the characters from the first book are in this one, as well as having ones for future books introduced in this one, etc. & so forth 😉 Plus, you’ll have a much fuller understanding of Edith’s personality after reading the first one, which will only enhance your enjoyment of this one. I can definitely recommend this book/series! It’s clean and wholesome as well as being witty and engaging, even in its more serious moments. As I said, I received an ARC but this in no way influenced my opinion and I am not obligated to leave this review. I really did love this story and I think most Regency and Shakespeare fans will to 🙃
