Miscommunication That s what this entire novel is based on I m not really a fan of novels that solely rely on miscommunication, but there were some interesting aspects of it Predominantly Ravenhurst He s a rake ready to move on from his rakish ways He s kind and patient and making his own way Ravenhurst is what gives this novel the stars I ve allocated He s worth reading the novel for. A discussion of sex toys in historical romance seemed out of place Maybe I am just old fashioned. Moi qui aime beaucoup cette auteure, j avoue que ce livre m a un peu laisser entre deux eaux Je commence par le n gatif que j ai ressenti Tout d abord, j ai trouv les dialogues entre Elinor et Theo un

poque c est assez courant mais cela a fait que je n ai pas pu me plonger dans la romance J ai t bloqu.Pour le reste, rien a dire, j aime toujours autant la plume de l auteure, l intrigue est tr s int

accrocheuse mais le lien familiale entre les deux personnages principaux m a refroidie compl tement Cela reste quand m me une jolie histoire mais je m attendais mieux Louise Allen s books are never

romances H La couverture de ce titre m a tout de suite interpell e Je l ai trouv magnifique et en accord avec le contenu Dans l ensemble, j ai appr ci ce roman m me s il a quelques d fauts Au d but de l histoire, nous rencontrons notre h ro ne Elinor Elle passe le plus clair de son temps dessiner et reproduire des uvres d art pour le compte de sa m re, qu elle assiste Elle est certaine de devenir vieille fille avant de retrouver son cousin Th o L amour entre cousin cousine peut choquer en 2013 mais une certaine poque, c tait tout fait acceptable et m me courant Personnellement, je n ai pas eu de probl me me placer dans le contexte et adh rer cette jolie romance.La construction est int ressante puisqu on a un point de vue omniscient qui passe de Elinor Th o sans arr t Nous savons ainsi d s le d but qu ils ont des sentiments l un pour l autre m me si eux n en ont pas conscience La romance est l l ment central de ce livre mais ce n est pas le seul J ai pr f r les deux premiers tiers de l histoire car nous avons aussi une enqu te Elinor que Th o surnomme bient t Nell et son cousin sont en effet la recherche d un objet qui a t d rob alors que Th o le rapportait son acheteur Il s agit d un calice caract re rotique ayant servi son ancien propri taire pour des pratiques peu conventionnelles Th o et Nell vont devoir d masquer le voleur et r cup rer le calice au plus vite J ai surtout aim les passages dans le ch teau o les nuits de nos h ros sont peupl es d escapades nocturnes Ils se retrouvent alors seuls et ont du mal r sister leur attirance Ce que j ai regrett , c est que la relation entre Nell et Th o stagne dans le dernier tiers Ils s aiment sans se l avouer et il n y a que tr s peu d volution jusqu la fin J ai eu du mal croire qu ils soient si aveugles et qu ils vitent ce point le sujet Leurs conversations se r p tent Th o veut l pouser mais sans lui avouer qu il l aime et Elinor refuse car elle pense qu il ne l aime pas Le suspense du d but a disparu et on tombe malheureusement dans le classique et le d j vu Elinor est une femme moderne pour l poque Elle change radicalement de caract re en rencontrant Th o Elle tait jusque l effac e et soumise sa m re et se d couvre finalement un fort caract re Elle est t tue et n a pas peur de briser les r gles avec Th o M me si son volution m a sembl parfois un peu trop rapide, j ai appr ci cette jeune aventuri re dans l me Th o est aussi un personnage attachant Malgr un pass de coureur de jupon, d s qu il tombe sous le charme de sa cousine, il ne pense plus aucune autre Comme je le disais plus haut, nous sommes ici dans une romance tr s fleur bleue qui plaira aux grandes romantiques Enfin, le style est agr able malgr quelques r p titions par ci par l L auteure a choisit de faire parler les personnages comme l poque, ce qui est appr ciable dans une romance historique M me si l on retrouve des l ments trop modernes pour le contexte notamment une h ro ne qui est bien trop l aise avec le contact physique , on se laisse prendre au jeu et on visualise plut t bien les lieux et les v tements des diff rents protagonistes.Pour conclure, Petits secrets et grand mariage est une romance toute mignonne et parfaite pour une lecture d tente M me si l histoire d amour ne m a pas boulevers e comme d autres, j ai pass un agr able moment Si vous tes sentimentale et que vous recherchez une histoire pleine de tendresse, n h sitez pas vous procurer ce titre Merci Romy et aux ditions Harlequin pour ce partenariat 3,5 5


About the Author: Louise Allen

Librarian Note There isthan one author in the GoodReads database with this name See this thread forinformation This author also writes under the name Francesca Shaw I have had my nose buried in a history book fact or fiction for as long as I can remember, but evenimportant to me are the places and the objects that conjure up the past My first attempt at historical fiction at the age of eight was three pages of improbable medieval drama set in the local castle.With a degree in geography and archaeology I love to try and read the landscape and the buildings in it for clues about the past Virtually any place can trigger ideas for plots, but I am particularly inspired by Venice, Burgundy, Mediterranean islands and the Hertfordshire and Norfolk countryside.I live in England in a village in Bedfordshire with my long suffering husband He is not sure whether to be flattered or alarmed to be told he is the inspiration for all my romantic heroes Whenever possible we escape to our cottage on the North Norfolk coast where Percy, the bossy pheasant, allows us to share the garden.My resolution every time I start on a new plot is to plan it carefully, make copious notes first and write lots of drafts in a disciplined and orderly manner What inevitably happens is that the story starts to write itself in my head until it gets completely out of control meanwhile my study floor becomes a sea of open books, prints and maps and I am found sitting in the car at traffic lights, muttering dialogue At that point I have to start writing, knowing full well that the hero and heroine are going to take over and sabotage all my attempts at discipline It is, after all, their story.
