Mrs. Drew Plays Her Hand by Carla Kelly - A Reader's Opinion

Mrs. Drew Plays Her Hand by Carla Kelly

A Reader's Opinion

Mrs. Drew played every hand exceptionally well, and so did author Carla Kelly. I lay in bed reading this book and actually caught myself smiling many times. I couldn't remember the last time I had so thoroughly enjoyed a book.

Roxanna Drew is an absolutely delightful and endearing heroine. Her strength, resilience, and love for her daughters is beautiful. The relationship she has with her children is so wonderfully written and each of them have very distinctive personalities, yet at the same, you can clearly tell they are related.

Our lovely Fletcher, or Lord Winn and he's know for most of the book, is charming, straight-forward, and fun! Yes, he is so much fun. Despite his moments of seriousness and stubbornness, he's wonderfully fun and the relationship between he and Roxanna is not only sweet, but they truly enjoy each other. I laughed with them many times.

The love is not instant between them, but rather a friendship that grows into an affectionate bond between two people who respect and care for one another. The love story is indeed lovely and develops at a very nearly perfect pace. It's also a wonderfully clean historical romance!

The setting is just as it should be. The descriptions of the dower house and manor are clear, but not too detailed as to distract from the story. The trek to Scotland--excellent! You'll have to read it to know what I'm talking about.

This is one of the best regency romances I have ever read, and I don't say that lightly. My only disappointment is that it had to end. Mrs. Drew, Lord Winn, and Carla Kelly get five stars and then some.  

Book Description

After her husband's death, Roxanna Drew is left with more beauty than fortune. Now, desperate to escape the perils of her past life, she must learn to trust the dashing Lord Winn---a broken man with a past of his own. This award-winning romance by bestselling author Carla Kelly is a moving and memorable book you won't be able to put down.
