The Country House Courtship by Linore Burkard

I absolutely adore Linore Burkard.  She is one of the sweetest ladies I know.  This is her third book in her Regency series.  Mention the word Regency and you have my attention.  Why?  I am a Jane Austen fan.  I have long loved her books.  The language, the setting, the story!  Linore is a modern day Jane writing in one of my favorite time periods.  I mean am I the only one who wishes we still dressed as they did?  :)

I loved the heorine Beatrice in this novel.  She was sassy and delightful.  And you know how I love a good series.  Beatrice is on a journey in this book.  Which is why it is probably why it is my favorite.  She is on a journey to find the one she loves…which any single girl understands!  This delightful book is full of twists and turns as we feel like Beatrice is on a roller coaster of emotions at times.  I think I understood Beatrice well which endeared me to her.

If you enjoy historical romance then The Country House Courtship is a fabulous read!

About the Book:

Readers are loving the third volume in Linore’s regency series from Harvest House Publishers,The Country House Courtship in which a young regency miss runs into conflict when her heart’s desires concerning a husband run counter to what her mind says is best.

It is 1818 and Miss Beatrice Forsythe is determined to marry well. After all, her sister married the Paragon, Mr. Phillip Mornay, five years earlier–which all but guarantees that she, Beatrice, can also make a famous match to a wealthy man.

But her sister and husband have disappeared from high society as they raise a family at their country estate.
Can Beatrice persuade them to chaperone her in London?

Meanwhile an old acquaintance, Mr. Peter O’Brien shows up at the house as the candidate for a vicarage to which Mr. Mornay holds the rights. Will old passions and jealousies be revived? Or can Mr. O’Brien and the Mornays ever live near each other as friends? And what about Beatrice’s rash promise to marry the curate, made years earlier? At seventeen now, she has no wish to marry a mere clergyman–despite his agreeable countenance and winsome gentle ways.

When Mr. Tristan Barton comes on the scene as the tenant of the Manor House, Beatrice’s hopes seem to have found their object. But when Ariana falls gravely ill, secrets come to light, motives are revealed, and the pretences that are easy to keep up in the sunlight begin to crumble. Hearts are bared, truths uncovered, and when all is said and done, a country house courtship like no other has occurred!

About the Author:

Publishers Weekly acclaimed the work of Burkard in its review of The House in Grosvenor Square, saying, “Ms. Burkard’s command of period detail is impressive..On the whole, it’s a tasty confection.”

Burkard, a fan of classic romances and graduate of City University of New York, began writing stories when she couldn’t find true Regency romance within the inspirational fiction category. “I knew that many women like me want stories that are historically authentic and offer glimpses of God’s involvement in our lives,” she says.

Raised in New York, Burkard now lives with her husband and five children in a town full of antique stores and gift shops in southwestern Ohio. To learn more about her, visit
