  • *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*.So if I’m honest about it I need to confess I would rate it 4.5 if I could but rounded it to 5 because my reasons for not rating it 5 are too personal and might apply to other potential readers. Moreover, I don’t like spoilers so forgive me for not giving many specifics below. For starters, I prefer my reads to have steamy scenes between the protagonists and Brains and Beauty falls short on those. However that doesn’t mean i [...]


  • Brains and Beauty is the companion book to Jeanette Watt's first book Wealth and Privilege The timeline is the same, but the point of view has shifted from Thomas Baldwin to Regina Waring. I have to admit, I found Regina to be a much more likable character than Thomas (as seen by Thomas). Regina, of course, has a different view of Thomas. Although appearances may often be deceiving, Regina at her core is the woman that she appears to be and the woman that Thomas believes her to be. I doubt that [...]


  • I have read and loved Wealth and Privilege, I could not wait to read another book by Jeanette Watts. I very much enjoyed also this second chapter in the story of Regina and Thomas.Regina is tired of her marriage and especially of her husband. She's a beautiful woman but also very intelligent and hates not be considered by her husband. They are business partners but he made some wrong investments without consulting her and has endangered their wellbeing. Luckily she had put her money in other ban [...]


  • It was an interesting premise, a woman taking over the family business when her husband died and growing the companies to huge international success, all in an era when women could not vote, and relinquished their possessions to their husband when they married. Social/ cultural details interesting. Exciting conclusion at the Johnstown Flood disaster and the improbable aftermath. Writing was not particularly well done but the background was worth the time of finishing the book, but not being exci [...]


  • Pittsburgh in the 1800's. 2 things about this. Number 1, I was not born in that era, obviously. Number 2, I've never even been to Pittsburgh in my own time. 1 important things after reading this novel I felt like I knew what it was like to be in Pittsburgh in the 1800's. True testament of a Historical writers ability to convey the period she is writing about. I was honestly engrossed in this novel. It was the perfect getaway from me and I could hardly put it down.


  • I had no intention of writing this book. But my readers threatened my life after finishing Wealth and Privilege. I took a cue from the unfinished Twilight book showing events from Edward's point of view, and I learned all sorts of things about my characters that I hadn't known before!
