Summary: Josette Price sees her future in Beddingfield Park. While her brother, George, needlessly pursues a naval career, Josette promises to watch over their beloved parents and the Beddingfield Park estate. Nothing would make Josette happier than to see her sister and her self settled within the palings of Beddingfield. But dark, brooding Captain Carter rides into their lives with news that ruins everything: George has been lost at sea.
Learning the Park is entailed to their cousin, Edward, Josette must decide between marrying her fickle relation or helping her besotted sister trap him in her stead. Before a decision can be made, will Captain Carter and his delightfully spinsterish relatives stop the Price girls from making a choice that would be the greatest tragedy of all?
If you are a fan of Jane Austen and Regency Romance you will be smitten by Josette. The tension between the characters and fast paced plot made it an outstanding pick. A cross between Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, it captures two sisters in the season of their most important decisions. Sprinkled with deception, intrigue, and slow building romance, Josette is all you could ask for and more. I would recommend it with our highest rating to all readers as the best Regency romance I’ve read yet.

Danielle Thorne’s Regency Romance, Josette sounds like an absolutely delightful story and one that I truly want to read–and old fashioned, more traditional comedy of manners/errors Regency that focuses on characters.
I think this looks like a very promising read.
What a beautiful cover…..Now I just have to read it…I am in one of those…..romance kinda moods ♥ Thanks for the review ♥
I love Regency era books. I hope this is another author to follow. It looks like she could be!
