  • Elizabeth Mansfield's "Passing Fancies"  Other reviewers have called this one their favourite of Elizabeth Mansfield's books, and All About Romance gave it a DIK (Desert Island Keeper) rating. I don't agree at all. The heroine, Pippa, is basically a pushover for her host family, the Sturtevants, who are, with the exception of Simon, the second son, simply appalling.The worst one is the sister Sybil, who is supposedly Pippa's BFF, but who immediately assigns Pippa the blame (and Pippa accepts wi [...]


  • Elizabeth Mansfield is one of my favorite Regency romance authors and if I had to pick a favorite of hers, this one would be it. She really misdirects you into thinking one man will be the hero and love interest and the true love interest sneaks up at you. This author's forte is non-stereotypical characters, or at least her heroes and heroines usually have a little quirk or two that makes you very fond of and invested in them. She is amazing at creating a sweet sexual tension between the love in [...]


  • Such a bit of fun! The scrapes these people get into are uncomfortable and hilarious and frustrating- the Sturtevant household is utter chaos- but the true gem is the studious, reliable, and quietly passionate Simon.


  • Synopsis: Lovely Lady Philippa Wyckfield gets drawn into any number of unfortunate situations due to her generous nature. Staying with friends she'd known since childhood, she manages to catch the eye of two of the brothers. One wrestles with his disgust of her supposed madcap nature while the other wrestles with his invisibility.What I liked: I loved the characters with their varied idiosyncrasies. There is Lady Philippa (Pippa), whose generous nature lands her in more trouble than any normal h [...]


  • I read this book because my friend brought it on vacation last year. She spent two days reading it, and by 'reading' I mean 'giggling uncontrollably'. I demanded that she hand it over as soon as she was done, and then of course I let it sit in a pile for the next year unread.I started the book and within pages wanted to shake them all. Except maybe the eldest brother, because he was the only character who wasn't infuriating. (Instead, he became insufferable. I still pitied him.) The flightiness [...]


  • the ramshackle Sturtevant family seems to use and abuse poor Pippa (esp her money) not so much maliciously as just carelessly. sadly she never really stands up for herself, future doesn't bode well. (view spoiler)[ wish she ended up with William, he at least understands the firm hand his family needs, hopefully simon will keep them both too busy with experiments to fall prey to any more of his family's madcap schemes. (hide spoiler)]



  • Another charming story by Elizabeth Mansfield. The only improvement I might have suggested, only the very slightest, is the ending. It could have been just a little better.
