A Reader's Opinion: SUMMER CAMPAIGN by Carla Kelly


Miss Onyx Hamilton is about to make what everyone agrees is a perfect marriage—until handsome Major Jack Beresford comes galloping into her life. But with his fortune and connections, Onyx knows he’d never ask for her hand, would he? New and longtime fans alike will relish this delightful romance from Carla Kelly. Charming, sweet, and full of fun, it’s simply impossible to stop reading.

Praise for Summer Campaign
Kelly’s novels besiege the reader’s heart, tear down the walls, and expose vulnerable centres all the while reminding us that the purposeful life is a life of service conducted with humour, strength, and good will. - Miss Bates Reads Romance

We have a bit of a Florence Nightgale story unfold, and there is a lot of drama throughout.  I confess, the ending was definitely a tear jerker and the novel itself had me staying up into the wee hours to finish it. . . Its a classic example of a traditional Regency, with a beautiful love story that effectively uses the time period to frame a romance that might otherwise seem impossible. - Regency Reader
 

A Reader's Opinion
Carla Kelly never fails to deliver. I enjoy all of her books, but I make it no secret that her Regency books are among my favorites. This one did start out a little slower for me than most of her Regencies, but soon picked up and reminded me why I love Kelly's writing. Often the heroine in Kelly's books draw me in first, but Onyx didn't manage to do that. However, Major Jack Beresford, like most of her heroes, is utterly charming, and by far one of my favorite of her heroes. He's flawed, too! Yes, the dashing hero stutters. In Jack's case, he also suffers from PTSD, but these are all elements which only add to Jack's likability. Kelly's characters are real with a great deal of heart. They struggle for what they have and for what they most desire.  

With strong characters, and interesting plot, laughter, sweet romance, and very clean, I highly recommend Summer Campaign to anyone who enjoys historical romance.
