    Underestimating Miss Cecilia holds a good premise, and even though the characters didn?t capture me in the beginning, they grew on me. Especially Edward. He is flawed, yet redeemable, and his actions felt authentic. Cecilia?s younger sister, Verity, also adds a spark to the story. ...

    The author is a genuine voice for Regency books. I always know that the quality of her writing will be excellent. The characters well thought out, and the authenticity of her stories felt. In a book series of three, you always figure that you will have a favorite, a middle and a lea...

    I love Carolyn Miller?s writing style. It is lyrical and fits perfectly for the time period that she writes. Her stories draw you in and wrap you up so thoroughly in the lives of the characters that you don?t want to leave them when the story is done! One of my favorite tropes i...

    A sweet read! If you know me, you know that I'm a big fan of historical fiction. The Regency era is an especially lovely time to read about, what with the proper courtships, gentlemen and ladies, and dances in abundance. Carolyn Miller has definitely become a favorite when it comes to ...

    ?Underestimating Miss Cecilia" by Carolyn Miller has house parties, history and romance! Also present are some very original and likable main characters. I love Cecilia as she is a romantic, loves to write in her journal and read books. She is outwardly shy, but throughout the book w...

    This may be my favorite book written by Carolyn Miller yet (but that?s pretty much the case with each new release). There was just something that resonated with me in this story. Quiet, unassuming peacemaker Cecilia Hatherleigh has loved the man next door for as long as she can re...

    This is the second book in Carolyn Miller's Daughter's of Aynsley series. While it connects to previous books and directly follows the events of A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh, it can be read as a stand-alone novel. I went into the book not liking Ned (Edward), due to his actions in pr...

    ?Perhaps this trial was yet another way God was trying to gain her attention,so she would focus more on Him, and not let the distractions of this world steal her thoughts and emotions.? I enjoyed this read and the fun characters that really drive the plot. Cecilia and Ned are bo...

    The Queen of Regency Romance has done it again! The second title in the Daughters of Aynsley series impresses as much as the first title does. When you are in love with the boy next door, for quite a while, let me tell you and he makes no move but you feel like he really does have fe...

    Love love and love this story!! Waiting on God to answer a prayer about love can be one of the hardest things to do. Especially when we have this gut feeling that His answer is a yes, but the other person seems to be moving slower than molasses. It can feel like absolute torture, but t...

    Carolyn Miller is one of my favorite authors of the Regency Period. She writes strong characters and endearing heroines who get into unusual circumstances. Her grasp of the language and settings of the era are delightful and reminiscent of Jane Austen. The cover is just stunning and fi...

    This book is the second in the Daughters of Aynsley series and is best read after A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh, but it can also be read as a standalone. Cecilia Hatherleigh has always been the meek middle sister, the one to go unnoticed or to be dismissed as shy and quiet. She has care...

    This is a hard review to write! First, I'll tell you what I enjoyed about this book... then I'll explain why it sadly didn't make it to five stars for me. "It was, perhaps, the greatest torment to love someone who barely seemed to notice one's existence." What a first sentence!...

    Wow! This was a wonderful and compelling story set in England, with realistic circumstances around the early 1800?s. I loved that it is not a mere romance novel, but that it has rich historical detail, which makes it more realistic, relatable and engaging. Ned are Cecilia have alwa...
