The Roses of Feldstone Reviews
This book was such a pleasant surprise. Debut author, Esther Hatch, has created a fantastic story with vivid characters who stand out in personality but not without their flaws. The back and forth between Rose and William was enough to drive me crazy in the best of ways. I was ready to scream out in frustration with them and then . . . oh, well, I cannot give too much away but let's just say that my tummy was all a flutter and I got goosebumps on my arms. That's a good sign of happy things. But ...more
I believe this was the first book by this author. I enjoyed every page of this book. I couldn't put it down. I loved our main characters Rose and William. I like that Rose was a strong female character but still maintained a softness & vulnerability as a female. I will look forward to reading more in the future from Esther Hatch.
Such a great Regency story that reminded me a bit of my favorite (Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson) in that both main characters are head-over-heels in love with each other but don't know that the other feels the same way, because of familial and social constraints and misdirection. Rose is understandably frustrated with William, and I couldn't fault her for goading him at times. The author struck a good balance between showing William and Rose's friendship as it once was so the reader would kno ...more
Thanks to NetGalley and Covenant Communications for this read in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions contained herein are my own.
Esther Hatch is an unfamiliar author and I thought the story was well-written and pleasant to read. Will I read another of her novels? I would say yes, although I was a bit disappointed with this one after reading such a catching description.
The characters, William and Rose have been friends since childhood, however because of the failings of his older ...more
This book was a delight from beginning to end. A perfect regency romance, with totally engaging characters and perfect tension throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed it!!
Fun new Regency.
I loved this premise:
But when he makes the hasty promise to marry within six months, he never dreams that his actions will lead Rose to impulsively undertake the same challenge.
And it did not disappoint.
“Roses of Feldstone” is from a new author not only for me, but sounds like it’s her first novel for everyone. I liked it a lot and will definitely look forward to any other books by Esther Hatch. The basic thread of the story is not original, but Hatch puts in new stuff and her own twist to make it original and fresh.
Rose is a young lady that has enjoyed past annual visits with The Earl of Chatsworth’s family at their country estate. The Earl and Lady Chatsworth have two sons. The elder to the f ...more
I read this one in just two days, it was so great! I loved the true-to-the-era feel of the book, felt like I was a fly on the wall throughout the story. This is one of my very favorite pure romance books ever. A nice plot that was easy to read and hard to put down. Can’t wait to read more of this author’s books!
