A Sapphire Season by Lynn Morris ~ My Review
Lynn Morris, bestselling author of The Baron's Honourable Daughter, once again sweeps readers into the Regency era with striking period detail.
Lady Mirabella Tirel, the beautiful daughter of the Marquess of Camarden, takes a practical approach to love since a dashing captain broke her heart at age 17. Now at almost 22 years old, she has decided to endure one last London season to secure a suitable engagement and begin a simple life in the country.
Sir Giles Knyvet is Mirabella's oldest friend and her most dependable ally, and he is also secretly in love with her. Yet he knows the prospect of a relationship is doubtful: Besides being a mere baronet, he aims to settle a large family debt before sharing his feelings with her. But as Mirabella draws close to a suitable match, Giles may need to interfere to buy himself more time.

Coming off of a hectic week of party planning and a new job, Lynn Morris's A Sapphire Season is a terrific way to unwind. A sweet, inspirational regency-set romance was indeed what the doctor ordered. This foray into regency is a sight better than the first book in the series and is reminiscent of Jane Austen's Emma.
Mirabella's and Giles's friendship is so endearing.The dialogue between Mirabella and her life-long friend Giles is fun to read. Their banter is lively, teasing, and authentic just as a conversation you would share with your closest friend. It's entertaining to see the staid regency world of ballrooms, seasons, and carriage rides with a lighter feel.
In spite of some really fast-pacing (sometimes months would pass in the span of a few paragraphs) Morris definitely impressed me with this Regency romance. Even though it's Christian fiction, it isn't over-the-top preachy. I was happy to finally read a book that was on par with my favorite Lynn Morris series, Cheney Duvall M.D.!
