Read full description of the books:

A sweet and benign romance, without any major complications.
Lovely complete characters, kids heart wrenchingly adorable, and a simple yet engrossing storyline.
It has some very endearing moments and flashes of brilliance where it draws you in completely.

So where lies the problem or part thereof?
The H comes across as too mild and ineffectual at times despite many actions that are befitting only to a resolute alpha- witness his war time adversities and heroism, the unyielding way in which he divorced his cheating wife, how he decided and acted on his resolution to save the h’s kids for her. So his going away to let the h make up her mind when he should not only have stayed and forced her hand, but also taken better care of his new family.

The h was pretty likable and was certainly a determined doer. Her love and relationship with her daughters was the best part of the book. And for a change we had a h who knew her body’s needs and accepted it without shame. But her taking the whole book to realize that perhaps she loved the H from the beginning was again a meh.

The h’s daughters were one of the most adorable and well fleshed out kid’s characters I’ve read recently. And I loved the them. The older one - serious and emotionally vulnerable, while the younger one - decisive and articulate - a copy of her mom. But the older girl at 6 acted almost like someone double her age and that rankled somewhat.

And the biggest problem was the length and the seemingly unending filler happenings that happen (making me skim again and again), and a hea or at least a communion in wedding that did not. They are two nice, suitable and practical people who like and trust and lust each other, so why do they decide to live apart as a moc couple and not give their marriage a try like anyone sensible naturally would. That was most frustrating.

But unlike some reviewers, I tried to understand and accept the redeeming of the villainous brother in law. In the end it seemed befitting and meaningful.
It fitted nicely with the overall sweet and gentle tone of the book.

Read information about the author

Ebook Mrs. Drew Plays Her Hand read Online! Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.

Although Carla Kelly is well known among her readers as a writer of Regency romance, her main interest (and first writing success) is Western American fiction—more specifically, writing about America's Indian Wars. Although she had sold some of her work before, it was not until Carla began work in the National Park Service as a ranger/historian at Fort Laramie National Historic Site did she get serious about her writing career. (Or as she would be the first to admit, as serious as it gets.)

Carla wrote a series of what she now refers to as the "Fort Laramie stories," which are tales of the men, women and children of the Indian Wars era in Western history. Two of her stories, A Season for Heroes and Kathleen Flaherty's Long Winter, earned her Spur Awards from the Western Writers of America. She was the second woman to earn two Spurs from WWA (which, as everyone knows, is all you need to ride a horse). Her entire Indian Wars collection was published in 2003 as Here's to the Ladies: Stories of the Frontier Army. It remains her favorite work.

The mother of five children, Carla has always allowed her kids to earn their keep by appearing in her Regencies, most notably Marian's Christmas Wish, which is peopled by all kinds of relatives. Grown now, the Kelly kids are scattered here and there across the U.S. They continue to provide feedback, furnish fodder for stories and make frantic phone calls home during the holidays for recipes. (Carla Kelly is some cook.)

Carla's husband, Martin, is Director of Theatre at Valley City State University, in Valley City, North Dakota. Carla is currently overworked as a staff writer at the local daily newspaper. She also writes a weekly, award-winning column, "Prairie Lite."

Carla only started writing Regencies because of her interest in the Napoleonic Wars, which figures in many of her Regency novels and short stories. She specializes in writing about warfare at sea, and about the ordinary people of the British Isles who were, let's face it, far more numerous than lords and ladies.

Hobbies? She likes to crochet afghans, and read British crime fiction and history, principally military history. She's never happier than talking about the fur trade or Indian Wars with Park Service cronies. Her most recent gig with the National Park Service was at Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site on the Montana/North Dakota border.

Here's another side to this somewhat prosaic woman: She recently edited the fur trade journal of Swiss artist Rudolf F. Kurz (the 1851-1852 portion), and is gratified now and then to be asked to speak on scholarly subjects. She has also worked for the State Historical Society of North Dakota as a contract researcher. This has taken her to glamorous drudgery in several national archives and military history repositories. Gray archives boxes and old documents make her salivate.

Her mantra for writing comes from the subject of her thesis, Robert Utley, that dean of Indian Wars history. He told her the secret to writing is "to put your ass in the chair and keep it there until you're done." He's right, of course.

Her three favorite fictional works have remained constant through the years, although their rankings tend to shift: War and Peace, The Lawrenceville Stories, and A Town Like Alice. Favorite historical works are One Vast Winter Count, On the Border with Mackenzie and Crossing the Line. Favorite crime fiction authors are Michael Connelly, John Harvey and Peter Robinson.

And that's all she can think of that would interest anyone. Carla Kelly is quite ordinary, except when she is sometimes prevailed upon to sing a scurrilous song about lumberjacks, or warble "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" in Latin. Then you m
