Love the early Barbara Metzger Regencies. But this one was beyond silly. I always look for romances by Barbara Metzger.

Love the early Barbara Metzger Regencies. Regencies are supposed to be fun comedy-of-manners type stories, but talking paintings just go beyond comedy. She is a master of the Regency romance, witty, with believable characters who are real enough to convince you and yet amusing enough to make you laugh. If you love a Regency romance based on fun and not a bodice-ripper that insults your intelligence, I highly recommend all her books. PAINTED LADY is especially clever! Her work is always a read to look forward to and to relish when you find a new one.

In the next moment she slipped off her own horse, hitting the ground in a run. She ran to the overturned curricle, reaching for her uncle, who was facedown on the ground. She ran to the overturned curricle, reaching for her uncle, who was facedown on the ground not know who, nor cared-and hands came together to turn over his lordship. A doctor, she cried. Someone fetch a doctor, immediately!. She swallowed down bile at the sight of her uncle’s bloodied face. Please God, let him be well, she prayed.

Still unwed at twenty-one, an unconventional high-spirited woman finds her affections sought by a handsome, devilishly charming Earl, who is nicknamed "The Ideal" by the ton--for his combination of wealth and looks. Though at first she fights his advances, slowly she forms a heated alliance with him. But sparring with words soon turns into a succumbing passion...

Another crazy story from a true gem! Full of seances and silliness enough to delight anyone and an Earl who definitely needs to be cut down to size and the just the Lady to do it. With people and things gone missing and a mother who contacts the spirit world when not matchmaking for her daughter, Miss Treadwell has her hands full trying to juggle all the needs of her mother's clients and keep their household together after her wastrel father leaves them destitute. Enter a Duke with a lost daughter and the Earl who is almost betrothed to the missing girl and who hates all that the Treadwells stand for and the battle is on! Except he can't seem to remember himself whenever he is around Miss Treadwell and she knows she's lost her mind around him to the point of violence against his person when she isn't melting from his kisses. This is a romp that will set your head whirling and you WILL laugh out loud! There have been many reviews of Barbara Metzger's work that have decried the fact that no one in the film industry has apparently read her work or have what it takes to produce these stories. What fun these could be! We can always hope one day someone will...look out, Masterpiece Theater!
It had been a while since I read a Metzger regency and thought this one sounded like fun. Her books are usually hit or miss for me. I thought this was a fun and entertaining read, with a light romance. I enjoyed the unique plot (our heroine's mother is a psychic) and filled with quirky characters (clients).

The overall story was cute, I did think the séances were a tad repetitive. I would have enjoyed more scenes with Maylene actually doing the leg work. I did like how the Treadwell women really came together and found a way to support themselves after the death of Lord Treadwell, who had left them with basically nothing.

Lord Hyatt never quite won me over. He could be pretty rude to Maylene and I thought she should have made him work for things a bit harder. I would have liked to see a sincere apology from him. I did love that she'd dish it right back and stood up to him though. I did enjoy how he basically fell for her right from the start, but didn't understand what was happening. He just couldn't keep himself away from her! In the end, they will probably make a good match of things.

Overall, if you're looking for a more unique storyline than the traditional regencies, this is a good one to pick up. Charming and lighthearted.

What a lovely light Regency. If you loved Murder She Wrote this book is right up your alley. The premise is a little tongue in cheek but very fun and extremely well-written. Set in London but not exactly amongst the fashionable ton this delightful comedy of errors describes a season in the life of Lady and Miss Treadwell, poor gentry who survive on the outskirts of society by contacting the dearly departed loved ones of paying patrons. Our heroine Miss Treadwell supplements this income by hiring herself out as a finder and doing odd jobs for nobles who wish to avoid the normal channels. The real drama begins when a Duke intrudes upon one of their meetings begging Lady Treadwell to assist in his search for his lost daughter. Along with him comes the daughter's would-be fiance, a handsome Earl, who is extremely skeptical of the whole idea. Add to this a hilarious cast of regular patrons, a missing heir to a Dukedom, a lover from beyond the grave and his loyal dog, and you have a wonderful laugh out loud book sure to entertain. Highly recommended for all Regency Romance lovers.
Laughter is good for the soul and my soul got a good dose of it with this book. The séances that heroine's mother conducts are just hilarious.

When I want a book that will really make me laugh, Barbara Metzger and Joan Smith are my go to authors. They almost always deliver. This book is my favorite by Ms. Metzger ... so far. There are still quite a few of her books I have yet to read.

The love story was nice too. The hero and heroine are simultaneously attracted to and repulsed by each other at the same time. She sees him as a heartless rake and he sees her and her entire household as minions of the devil. These two are evenly matched and it is fun (and funny) to see their love story develop.

A light fun read with plenty of laughs!
