Book Review of Lady Fiasco by Kathleen Baldwin

Can a lady with a reputation for disaster, stumble into love?

An unusual heroine, Fiona Hawthorn grew up running free. Without a mother to restrain her, she spends her days riding her horse neck or nothing across her father’s fields and swimming like a sea nymph. But inside a prim and proper Regency sitting room Fiona is bound to overturn the teapot or accidentally trip the footman. Her illustrious Aunt Honore decides to take the hoyden in hand, but amidst the strictures of the Beau Monde, Fiona is a fish out of water.

When she was younger, Lord Wesmont was her hero. Sadly, he came home from fighting Napoleon a hardened man. Nothing can breathe life back into his cold heart, nothing except, perhaps, the love of an unusual young woman who regularly turns his life upside-down.

Lady Fiasco is a Sweet Traditional Regency Romance.

This book was simply just a fun read. Set in the Regency era, this book seemed more legit than other independent books set in this time period. I can tell the author really did their research but also but their own twist onto things, and didn't just make a Jane Austen copy cat kind of book. 

Fiona is a delightful character that you can't help but adore. Her aunt is also a fun character to follow and as I would assume would be a crazy aunt to have during that time period. I liked that the main couple in the story were the more proper ones, it had the feeling of Sense and Sensibility to me.  

Anyone who loves regency historical stories, especially of the romance variety will be pleased with this well written novel.
