Auch dieser Roman in der bridal Serie hat eine sympathische und teilweise sehr komische Heldin. Auch der Held zeigt Sinn für Humor und ist -Gott sei Dank- nicht so ein typischer Verbitterter Schnulzenheld. Ein sehr schöner und unterhaltender Liebesroman.

This book was a nice read. I really had to laugh a great deal and Connie Brockway proves that she is defintely one of the best Romance authors. But I missed a conflict between Evelyn and Justin. Everything was just too nice and too sweet and no tension at all.

HASH(0x8cf72c9c) von 5 Sternen glory of nobility tarnished somewhat in late Victorian era 16. Mai 2005
Von Kotori - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Upon reading a book of this caliber, I regret all the 5 stars which have gone before -

Squandering spangles upon novels which have been less decorated that I might fully impress upon you, the reader, this tomes glorious worth!!

Young Evie encounters Justin first at her parents houseparty, launching her older sister. Enterprising lass that she is, upon bumping into him emerging from an older (married) ladies room she strikes a deal of silence which will leave him in her debt.

She makes other unfortunate entrances also at this houseparty, and overhears some unkind ladies disparging her looks to the extent that she feels she must be terribly ugly - golem like in fact. This instance shapes her to the point that when she seeks out Justin 10 years later, Evie has entirely lost interest in her appearance and dresses in most a most utilitarian style.

Calling upon the old IOU, Evie requests usage of Justins ancestral home, in order to host a wedding for a client. (Various strategems are imployed here, to make this necessary - Evie has taken on the family business which pads their modest income).

In a well employed change from the much travelled theme of Regency England, the story is set in late Victorian times, where the glory of nobility has tarnished somewhat and the chaperonage is not quite as strict.

Justin is soon revealed as a secret agent, and there are all sorts of comings and goings in the night which add to the atmosphere and create many an interesting byline.

The delightfully entertaining exchanges between our leads make for delicious banter, whilst the tender love making scenes ought to be an inspiration to all writers. Without being crude, the author graciously depicts wonderfully sensual moments and brings sizzle AND the butterflies to the scenes which for once I find ENHANCE the book rather than bringing the romance down.

The first Connie Brockway novel I have read, and most certainly not the last, I felt it held up to the standards set by Eloisa James, possibly surpassed a Stephanie Laurens, and was a delightful successor to Patricia Veryan and Loretta Chase.

Having most recently read Jo Beverleys My Lady Notorious which had a promising beginning only to sink a great deal with salicious raunchiness midway, Bridal Favors swims and sizzles through challenges which others fail.

HASH(0x8cf72cf0) von 5 Sternen they don't give out those RITA awards for nothing... 24. Februar 2006
Von Erin Satie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I just read "Bridal Favors" back to back with "McClairen's Isle: The Passionate One" - and frankly, I am amazed that the same person wrote them both. McClairen's Isle was so dark and intense; Bridal Favors is full of light and air and cheer. Brockway writes both sorts with, apparently, equal aplomb.

I totally adored Justin and Evelyn. They both stand out as individuals; Justin's glib tongue is endlessly amusing and Evelyn's determination and practicality are so poignantly woven in with her desire to please and vulnerability. They're both fundamentally good people, too, also independent and responsible.

The ensemble is just delightful. Beverly the butler, Merry the dressmaker, Stow the spymaster...there's so much quirk and wit and froth, but at the same time, the plot is never thin and Justin is a pretty believable spy.

This was a *fun* read - I smiled and laughed all through. I have to say, I am quite impressed by Brockway. I think I'm going to have to read all her other books now, too.

HASH(0x8cf72fcc) von 5 Sternen Excellence times two 11. September 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm delighted that Connie Brockway continues the excellence of THE BRIDAL SEASON in this second installment of the ill-fated Whyte's Wedding Planning Agency. With the same sharp, droll humor and insightful attention to social detail she exhibited in that earlier work, Brockway brings to life little over-compensating, domineering Evie and her perfect foil, Justin. The story races along involving a really decent little mystery, a wonderful cast of supporting characters, and enormous physical as well as intellectual magnetism between the leads. A fun, fun read and well worth the effort of seeking out.

HASH(0x8cf75348) von 5 Sternen A pleasant-enough read 1. Oktober 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
While I enjoyed this book and liked the characters of Evie and Justin well-enough, it probably won't end up on my keeper-shelf. I liked the spoof on espionage that seems to be a staple of historical romances right now and the characters were likable. I suppose what was missing was passion. There was never any doubt that the two characters were going to get together and I didn't quite buy that Evie was an ugly-duckling or all-consumed with failure. This book is certainly better than many I have read lately and if you are looking for a nice, gentle read this one is for you.

HASH(0x8cf75228) von 5 Sternen A Wonderful Story 25. September 2011
Von Cybercliper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Not sure what rock I've been hiding under but this was my first book by Brockway and I am so happy to have discovered her! BRIDAL FAVORS is an entertaining story, fast paced and populated with wonderfully drawn characters.

Heroine Evelyn Whyte - is everything you could wish for in a heroine. She's smart, witty with a lot of strength without coming off as harsh. She's guarded but realistic in her evaluations - you never get the feeling that Evie is going to plunge into the land of TSTL - it's not part of who she is. Evie has been under the impression since she was a youngster that she is unattractive - a golem - as she's heard people refer to her behind her back and to make up for it she strives for perfection in all she does in order to garner acceptance.

Hero Justin Powell - is a warm, loving beta hero. He's witty and charming - able to match wits with Evie and appreciate her intelligence. As a spy, he masquerades as a dilettante idler, innocuous and harmless but is a shrewd operative, dangerous when necessary. He has given up a lot in service to his country - his army career, his family's respect, and a life of his own. He's growing tired of all the intrigue and meeting Evie again and seeing her as a woman makes him want something more. He wants his Evie.

Romance - is slow to build but the sweeter for it. There's no rash hormonal overload and the characters spend time getting to know each other. Evie's idea of Justine - she thinks he's a reformed womanizer - is different than the actual man himself and provides some very funny interactions. The pair receives help in the romance department from Evie's meddling French chaperone/dressmaker Merry and Justine's prickly butler Beverly. The romance along with the humor is stepped up when the gentleman next door sets his sights on Evie and Justin has competition.

Plot - comes about when Aunt Agatha elopes leaving her wedding planning business unattended and Evie takes on the business intending to keep is successful until her aunt returns. Unaccustomed to failure, Evie is having a string of embarrassing mishaps so she jumps at the chance to redeem herself when a rich American widow arrives to get remarried and requests to have the wedding at Justine's family estate. Justine's spy handlers jump at the chance to use the event along with some rumors and planted information to catch a master spy. The plot involves using a stolen device as bait; while unbeknownst to Justine he and Evie are the actual bait. While the intrigue of double agents, spy masters, and spies could become confusing this wasn't the case. The plot flowed along and the mystery of who was who came together nicely in the end.

Now that I've discovered Brockway I'm definitely going to be running down this author's backlist and watching for new releases.
