Promises and Primroses Reviews
Josi S. Kilpack has written an enjoyable and engaging historical regency romance story in her novel Promises and Primroses. Written from the perspective of four different characters, this novel has a strong theme of budding, reuniting, and improving relationships. Kilpack knows her history for the Regency time period and does an excellent job of including this in her stories, as well as bringing to life her fabulous characters. The first in the Mayfield Family series, this is a fun and sweet rom ...more
I’ve come to realize that the books in the “Proper Romance” collection earn mixed reviews from me. Sometimes I love the stories and sometimes I don’t. Promises and Primroses, unfortunately, falls into the latter category. While the cover is beautiful, the story itself wasn’t very interesting to me. I didn’t care for the 4 different points of view, and I feel like I never really connected with any of the characters. I didn’t ever get excited or feel warm fuzzies when I was reading, and I WANT to ...more
I received an ARC of this book, and it was divine! It's the first book I've read by Josi, and she's definitely on my list of romance authors now! I felt the story was woven together great, and loved all the different perspectives. I also loved how she added in the Primroses. I highly recommend! :)
I read a preview copy of this book (perk of working at a bookstore!) and LOVED it!
It was a little bit hard to get into at first because the chapters are divided by four main characters, but totally work as the book continues. The pedigree chart at the beginning is useful, but a little intimidating as you start the book too.
I LOVED the story and the characters and how the story developed. Although it was fairly predictable, it was well written and had some plot twists and the descriptions were ex ...more
I have mixed feelings about this story. I didn't have to force myself to finish it, but it also wasn't one I had to force myself to put down. I did feel like the ending picked up quite a bit.
The author switched POV between 4 main characters. For me, it made the story feel really disjointed, and I never really got attached to the characters. I do like a story told from a couple of different POV, but usually only 2 MAYBE 3. I also didn't really care for Amelia. Even when the story was told from he ...more
WOW! Josi knocks it out of the park! If this book is anything to go on, this next series from her will be her best yet.
Starting off on a marriage campaign for his nieces & nephews, Lord Elliot Mayfield decides it's time he make some proposals to push them into the next steps in life, one that some of them have shown little promise of doing. Each tailored to their specific personalities and needs, we don’t know what he has come up with. He begins with Peter, who is his heir and the oldest, w ...more
This was such a sweet double story. I enjoyed every chapter.
I loved the characters in this book. I love that there is always some unique or interesting theme or issue in Josi Kilpack's books. I like dogs, but the research she did to include the scenes with the whelping and such, really made it real. I appreciate a well researched book, yet it did not take over and distract from the sweet story line and main characters. Can't wait for the next one.
