    I hate giving a bad review when an author gives me a free copy of a book But the author approached me because she thought I liked humorous Regency romances I did message her back that I usually only like the incomparable Georgette Heyer's Regencies that I was in a bit of a reading slump because of Lockdown Ms Wylde still very kindly sent me a copyI had a problem almost immediately with the idea of a pet goat being kept in the house not a spoiler Lady Bathsheba is introduced 3% in I've owned two goats I can tell you no one in their right mind would keep a goat indoors We got our first goat because the previous owner claimed Hoover had eaten all the washing off their clothesline I'm sure that was an exaggeration Hoover was only a kid then As an adult not only would he have been capable of eating an entire wash he probably would have eaten the clothes line too Fortunately I guess when he got off he found appealing targets our rose bushes for exampleThe other thing with goats is they defecate constantly what my husband called hundreds thousands their pooh really stinks This isn't to say that they aren't great pets our second goat Petunia was lovely but they need to be kept outside with appropriate shelter I have to say I really started uestioning my life choices when on top of everything else I had to do as a working Mum I had to take the goat for walks to keep her hooves down This jarred me every time Lady Bathsheba appeared because I couldn't lose myself in a romance that I knew from other reviews had a fair few anachronisms such as freuently mentioning bloomers for women's underpants I made it to 31% but I didn't find this book funny I thought the hero was ridiculousNot for me Sorry

    SynopsisYoung country maiden Penelope Fairweather arrives in London to stay with the Radclyffs her goal to catch a husband However Penelope is the most awkward of ducklings She is a disaster magnet with no polish a penchant for saying whatever comes to her mind and a best friend Lady Bathsheba who is a goat So the dowager Duchess of Blackthorne and her daughter Anne Lady Radclyff have their work cut out for them It doesn't help that Charles the present duke despises Penelope and wants to send her back to Finnshire What they don't know is that Penelope has no home to go back to since her stepmother hates her Penelope has one chance to have a home and that's to succeed at finding a husband If only she could do something right and temper her incautious enthusiastic ways so she can have a chance at a home and a family of her ownThe Radclyff women recruit Madame Bellafraunde a dynamo at styling women of the ton who just happens to be a man dressed as a woman to turn Penelope into a stylish young lady who can catch a husband What ensues is moment after moment of zany scenes as Penelope struggles to find her feet in a new world The Duke of Blackthorne slowly finds his feelings change for Penelope her sweet spirit and generous authentic nature finding the key to his frozen heart Now if he could only convince Penelope that he doesn't hate her There's also the matter of his mean spirited fianceé Lady Lydia SnowlyReviewPenelope is a laugh riot This is a book for romance readers who really want to enjoy themselves with lots of slapstick style comedic scenes and absurdity Penelope is absolutely adorable Her sweetness and honest spirit makes her a heroine that readers will love At times I wondered how she could constantly stumble from disaster to disaster but it's all in fun Mixed with the hilarious moments is pathos for Penelope's situation She lost her true mother at birth and was never loved by her stepmother She never felt accepted in her own home She hasn't had the same opportunities as many but that doesn't stop her from being a young woman of courage and strengthCharles Duke Blackthorne is not very likable for most of the book He says the most horrible things to Penelope which makes him seem like a puppy kicker I loved that Penelope stood up to him and demanded his respect She didn't try to fit into his narrow boxes and narrow world and over time he realizes that he loves her for who she is despite her lack of a verbal filter and penchant for disaster While I didn't much care for Charles initially he does come around and redeem himself and he and Penelope have great chemistry I wanted him to fall in love with her just because that would be the last possible thing a lofty duke like himself would ever consider doingThis novel is populated with uirky characters that kept me laughing and engaged in the story I love to laugh and Anya Wylde definitely had me laughing with this book I couldn't wait to see what zany disaster would occur next I liked the crazy twist on My Fair Lady with a little cross dressing thrown inPenelope is a thoroughly enjoyable novel It's unashamedly goofy but it's done so well this book is infectiously readable as a result I would recommend this novel to readers who love funny romance stories Penelope is a heroine that you can't help but love Charles isn't uite as likable which is why this isn't a five star read but I did like how he comes to realize that he can't resist falling in love with Penelope And it's great to see her get the happy ending she deserves Definitely recommendedOverall rating 4550 starsReviewed for The Hope Chest Reviews

    45 stars “All the good stuff is not for ladies” Penelope grumbled Penelope is a sweet historical romantic comedy filled with amusing and original ideasAnya Wylde is a great storyteller She smoothly carries the story forward vividly portrays the characters and is able to make enjoyable even the descriptive parts You become attached to the characters soon you can see and hear them and feel sympathy for themPenelope a country girl with her refreshing uniueness arrives to spend the season in London at the invitation of her mother’s old friend the dowager of BlackthorneWith her tendency to babble and to cause embarrassing accidents Penelope is very much out of place But she is also kind open and cheerful so she immediately wins the support and friendship of the dowager and her daughter Lady Anne No one in her surroundings can remain untouched by her irresistible persona maybe except Charles the Duke of Blackthorne who is highly irritated by the presence of Penelope for many reasonsEven though he mercilessly insults her whenever he gets the chance it is obvious from the very beginning that Penelope and the Duke are meant for each other But they go through many hilarious situations before they have their ‘happily ever after’What is not perfectWhile the reader is whirled through the events of the story some gentleness is forming between Penelope and Charles slowly bit by bit It's nicely developed but about at three uarters of the book there is a scene that breaks this development view spoilerIt is the scene when Penelope sings a tavern song hide spoiler

    4 12 stars rounded down to 4 stars because the Duke's grovelling apology should have been a bit longer yes I'm that vindictive LOL

    Two things First MANY times I had to ignore impossible plot points events and the characters’ reasons for what they said and did There’s really no place for rational thinking in this story None You just have to sit back and enjoySecond I thoroughly enjoyed this bookLet me first start with what I didn’t likeso I can end on a good note and say what I loved about this book What I didn’t like was that the silliness and “incidents” or “accidents” were one on top of another And I think it was one or two or three or too many for me There were probably about 10 incidents before things started to normalize for Penelope Then there was the Duke’s reason for his hatred of Penelope Again it was too farfetched that what happened to him happened as many times as it did and a little off putting that he jumped from one woman to the next in a relationship capacity instead of the generally accepted mistress route It’s not that I don’t like these silly happenings it’s just that when there are too many it becomes too out of character and I want my Hh to have at least some good sense Or worse yet when there are too many I start to believe that the stupidity naïveté and nonsensical carelessness is part of their character and that is not attractive I was close to this point but thankfully the Hh didn’t uite cross the point of no returnWhat I lovedthe romance The lovehate tension The starchy Duke unraveling I’m such a sucker for when these serious and stuffy men start to crack a smile laugh and show some emotion and vulnerability Even though the Duke was terribly rude and mean to Penelope he was there to her rescue when it counted We always knew he had a heart since he already had a soft spot for his mother and sister but when that soft spot opened up for Penelope sigh There’s nothing better sigh Penelope is an endearing heroine She’s honest caring and uirky She attracts mishaps like moth to a flame through no fault of her own but there is also a little bit of ridiculousness to her that is all her own Like having a pet goat or her “word vomit” tendencies when she’s nervous but what I like most is that there is a sense of selflessness about her Reminding us of how her mother took the Dowager under her wing many years ago That’s why she’s good for the Duke because even though he was rude to her she would still want nothing but good things for him She would never trap him or hurt him the way he had been in the pastThe supporting characters were fantastic The Dowager Anne Mary Lord Rivers Lady Bathsheba and my most favorite one Madame Bellafraunde So engaging I think Madame is the angel Penelope’s mom sent down from heaven to help herThis book is not to be taken seriously I don’t say that as a criticism but to the point that this book was written to entertain to enjoy There’s so much humor some slapstick humor heart wit and romance all rolled into this madcap tale Thank you Anya WyldeNote I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review I did see this book on BN Nook for 099 and I would have gladly purchased it


  6. Anne Anne says:

    Hahahahaha oohhhhhh this book Where do I start? I have just finished it and am still busy wiping the tears from my eyes born eually from laughter and adorable feelz I have absolutely no idea how Anya Wylde managed to write one of the most adorable Regency romances I've ever read where half the book literally makes no sense and the other half consists of the Hh yelling insults at each other I don't know how it's possible but it just happened and I absolutely LOVED it As pretty much every single review will tell you Penelope is a madcap Regency comedy And by madcap we mean literally impossible Penelope our dear heroine has a pet goat befriends highwaymen and spends the night unchaperoned at a lord's residence There is a cross dressing modiste an old butler who dances in the drawing room and an old grand father who believes in mustaches The adventures of the Season include accidentally ripping a hostess's gown to the point where she is uncovered being chased out of a mansion by a cheetah and falling out of orange trees into the arms of unsuspecting gentlemen The historical inaccuracies range from these improbable and impossible plot lines to women wearing bloomers not a thing during the Regency era and men wearing just a shirt scandal The hero repeatedly calls the heroine an imbecile an idiot a nuisance a doxie a country wench and a thousand other vile names besides He point blank tells her at least three times I do not like you and refers to her as a fruit fly or a mosuito for half the book The heroine naturally despises the hateful arrogant conceited pompous overbearing domineering impatient horrible blasted hero and spends 90% of the story boiling his temperTheir romance was founded on insults and dislikeHottest thing I've ever read I genuinely don't understand how their chemistry was that good but my GOODNESS IT WAS SIZZLING OFF THE PAGES I don't know how but it WORKED I loved them Such suabbling Such heated repartee Such passionate rejoinders Such love I honestly can't explain this book It makes no sense But it's hilariously contrived and delightfully humorous The characters are all gems and somehow somehow it justworksThis was kinda like Georgette Heyer meets Jen Turano and I'm here for this I didn't realize how much I needed a lighthearted funny book until I started reading Penelope I knew what I was getting into having been warned by the reviews that it was a very silly madcap story so I was fully prepared to disregard logical plot points and I had a fantastic time I laughed out loud several times in public and didn't care It was such good fun and I absolutely adored Penelope Gaaahhhhhh I loved it I'm an incoherent mess 3 3A huge thank you to the author for giving me a copy of this book I enjoyed it immensely and all opinions expressed here are my own

    Penelope tells the story of this extremely likable heroine to whom is given the opportunity to travel to London and join the Season all this sponsored by a wealthy dowager who used to be a friend of her deceased mother being that Penelope’s family could never afford it The thing is Penny is pretty much the human version of a small tornado and people usually stay away from her so they won’t end up involved in her mishaps She’s also not allowed to go back home without a husband or her vile stepmother will make her marry a gross old manI truly loved Penny since the beginning especially because she never feels sorry for herself or plays the victim yes she breaks down and cries a few times making me cry as well after all her life is a tad complicated at the moment but still she manages to keep going to smile to have fun to plot against the Duke to enjoy life in general So much respect for this girl honestly Enemies to lovers is probably my favorite type of relationship which means I was bound to enjoy every minute of the situation Penny and the Duke together in the same room boy oh boy this guy can be a total arse a jerk a bully and a couple of scenes broke my heart just a little bit but Penny never let me down with her comebacks and like I said before I enjoyed it allThe less positive there are a couple of important scenes that the reader only knows happened because Penny tells someone about them much later and I found this a little confusing but overall I was pleasantly surprised with the writing the events and the pacing of the story there’s always something happening or about to no boredom is allowed no sirSo yes I can definitely recommend this book for fans of historical romance and romance in general You guys are in for a treat ; And please keep in mind that Penelope has a pet goat A pet goat Really think about itThank you so much AnyaPT Cuidado com o Dálmata

    Ugh I don't think there is much worse than when you start a book and are loving it in the first couple chapters and then it goes and tanks Ugh That is exactly what happened with Anya Wylde's madcap regency Penelope I'm new to the regency genre but I do like it so far I was excited for a lighthearted fun silly regency and was impressed with the reviews I have read So I bought it on Kindle and began to read It tells the story of a young woman named Penelope who was sent to the friend of her dead mother who promised to help find her a husband by the end of the season Penelope is clumsy and speaks her mind which charms some and disgusts others But her feuds with the dowager's son the Duke cause plenty of awkwardness First of all I was instantly charmed and fell in love with our heroine Penelope Penelope was hilarious and sweet but when it started getting too wacky I thought to myself ok this is goofy and I like itbut PLEASE don't go too far or it will get to be too much And what happened? Well it got to be WAY too muchand now I wish I could get my money backMadcap is putting it lightly The correct word would be ridiculous And not the GOOD ridiculous example Chelsea Handler but the HORRIBLE ridiculous example Carrot Top The story was predictable the situations manic and I was exhausted and just CRAVING the ending of this wackadoo novelMy biggest mistake was actually reading this the whole way through Don't get me wrong I don't count an author out by just one flop and ohhhh girrrrlll this flop was a doozey So if I hear she has a good book I will try another and give her another chanceBut for now I will tuck Penelope into the dungeon of my Kindle and hope she never EVER escapes

    This one started out so strong I usually love a mad cap comedy but this just got too goofy for even my tastes It bordered on the absurd so much that I felt the romance got lost

    Penelope by Anya WyldePenelope is an adorable historical farce The humor is way over the topthere is a highway robber a goat a cross dressing spy a hilarious uncle with a mustache obsession and a sweet lonely heroine who is longing for love companionship and friendship Penelope is adorable goofy and good hearted Folks looking for what I like to call reality based fiction will probably not like this one You need to check your willing suspension of disbelief at the door and then laugh yourself silly while you read I was charmed There was one formatting error with the indents that hopefully will be fixed soon and the hero was a little bit too conflicted for a good portion of the book But other than that there are many sweet and funny scenes that are a testament to Anya Wylde's imagination and sense of humor I love a good farce and this one fits the billGrade BA
