What do a poor relative, a clandestine painter and a young woman desperate to make her first London season her final one have in common? These women are the main characters of the most recent addition to the Timeless Regency Collection. A Season in London by authors Elizabeth Johns, Heather B.

Distinctive characters, unexpected plots, and plenty of wit and humor make Emma, Emily and Daphne women who know how to hold their own despite society’s expectations. A charming collection.

Condemn Me Not: Accused of Witchcraft was an eye-opening book for me. I found Condemn Me Not an intense book to read for several reasons. Having no intimate knowledge about the Salem witch trials, reading such a thought-provoking account of the people accused of the witchcraft was shocking. From the squalor of the jails to the false accusations family, friends, and neighbors made out of fear, to the absurdly that a handful of young women could destroy the lives of so many people, Condemn Me Not is a story worth reading.
Well written and full of historical details that augment but don’t overwhelm the story, Condemn Me Not is a historical novel based on Moore’s 10th great-grandmother Susannah North Martin. I like how the present story of the women confined to jail awaiting their trials was told with the flashbacks of Susannah North Martin’s love story and marriage. Reading about Susannah Martin’s ageless love story and learning about the backgrounds of the other women made Condemn Me Not a poignant and tragic story. Heather B. Moore gave me a complimentary copy of Condemn Me Not for my candid review.
Falling for Sydney is a fun, short novella to read. Sydney is a woman preparing for her dream wedding and the plot takes off from there. Heather B. Moore again delivers a well written, engaging and romantic novella that entertains. Definitely worth reading and looking forward to reading the other two novellas in the Falling Series. Heather B. Moore gave me a complimentary copy of Falling for Sydney for my candid review.
