Review: The Tempestuous Petticoat

The Tempestuous Petticoat
The Tempestuous Petticoat by Mary Ann Gibbs

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this book. I've liked most of Mary Ann Gibbs' historical novels, and this was no exception. The setting is interesting--Georgian England, set in the year 1794 at the tail end of the Terror.

The heroine is strong, mature, independent without being pig-headed. I find I like these types of calm, controlled, strong women. The hero is masculine and an alpha-male without being overbearing, the perfect foil for her.

The conflict between the heroine and her family was interesting and made me root for her even more. The last few chapters of the book are also amusing and romantic and I absolutely loved it.

I can't say enough good things about this story. It just really resonated with me.
