Amanda McCabe just got another great review for her historical LADY MIDNIGHT — this time at “The Romance Reader” website. Congratulations, Amanda!
The review can be found here:
The reviewer refers to her “luscious prose,” and argues that LADY MIDNIGHT belongs more to the tradition of Charlotte Bronte than Jane Austen. (Do you agree, Amanda?)

Well, there’s the fact the heroine is a governess (or a pretend governess anyway!), but unlike Jane she is beautiful and sad. And the hero’s first wife is really dead. 🙂 But I could see their point–it’s more Gothic-y and dramatic than drawing room-comedy-ish, set on a lonely moor with a few vague ghostly things going on, which I suppose makes it more Bronte than Austen. And, hey, I won’t take exception to being compared to a Bronte novel! :)) (There, that’s two smileys in one post. I’m getting carried away)
Congratulations, Amanda, and no need to apologize for too many smilies. In my opinion, a good review warrants buckets full of them!
