Today’s post is a review of Lutheran author Susan Heino‘s book, Bonnets and Sonnets: A Regency Romance Collection.
Bonnets and Sonnets Review
Bonnets and Sonnets was a fun read. There are seven stories that more or less loosely tie into seven nursery rhymes. Such a fun & clever idea! Most of them are very familiar from Mother Goose, although one of them I was less familiar with. All of the stories featured Regency fun. Happily all of them also featured happy endings! They all made for a nice, leisurely read.
The Mother Goose rhymes are “Curley-Locks,” “Little Miss Muffet,” “Jack and Jill,” “Mistress Mary, Quite Contrary,” “Little Bo Peep,” “Dickery, Dickery, Dock, and “Little Jack Horner.”
I liked them all. Honestly, as a collection, it seemed to fly by, lickety split, even though it’s a full length book. The stories felt more like short stories rather than novellas, which made them easy to slip into my day, one here and another there. I still suspect I read the book in only a day and a half or so. 🙂
Mild and wholesome. Generally very sweet.
