"Elise Clarke has written an entrancing debut"

"Elise Clarke’s prose is spectacular, the use of language is exquisite, and the dialogues superb."

"Cute, witty, fast-paced Regency novel"

"Tam cracked me up all the way through."

"This was one of my favourite reads of the year"

And finally... "reads like a play written by Jane Austen but performed by Monty Python!"  Which I will take as a big compliment - traditional, I am not.
