  • This book has graphic descriptions of horrors that you do NOT want in your head. I am sorry that I read it. I would NOT recommend this book to anyone!

  • Well before I read this book and after I read "Mrs Drew plays her hand ".... I thought Wow...that's in the top five... of all the books I have read. I don't say that lightly. I have at least 2500 books on my Kindle and read probably 5 or 10 a week. I have to delete them off frequently to keep it at 2500... I am not bragging. That's how much I liked this book. Ms. Kelly, I bow to the way you effortlessly give your heroes such a mixture of humaness and grace. This book will stay with me. I will read it again which I rarely do. This is not a frivolous book and Ms. Kelly is not a frivolous writer. Please read it. It has forced me to have a top 6.

  • After the events chronicled in "Libby's London Merchant" you just knew that it would take a very special lady to make Benedict Nesbitt, the Duke of Knareborough forget Libby Ames. And indeed the heroine of "One Good Turn" is a truly a very extraordinary lady.
    The Duke of Knaresborough is trying (but not really succeeding) very hard to come to terms with the fact that Libby Ames has not only rejected him, but has found happiness with her splendid but ordinary husband, Dr. Cook. In an effort to take his mind of Libby and his current unhappiness, the duke has agreed to take his young neice to his country estate so that she will not contract chickenpox form her infant brother. However while on the road, the duke discovers to his horror that his niece has contracted chickenpox after all, and he's not sure if he can cope with a sick, fractious child. Fortunately for the duke, Miss Liria Valencia and her young five year old son appear on the scene. And although he takes Liria to be no more than a Spanish camp follower, who had given birth out of wedlock, her ability to deal with the crisis at hand and her calm manner impresses the duke no end, and impulsively he offers her a job as his housekeeper. The more contact he has with Liria, the more he is intrigued by her. Who is this mysterious Spanish woman who seems more than able to run a duke's household and who possesses the dignity and demeanor of one far above her station? What brought to England? And why does she refuse to return to Spain? Ever curious, the duke sets out to discover the secrets that Liria harbors in order to help a lady who is becoming of increasing importance to him.
    I know that I've said this about quite a few Regency romance novels lately, but this time it's really true: this is a romance novel that is out of the ordinary! After a steady diet of flirty heroines and rakish heroes, this book was a novel experience. Liria is certainly unlike most heroines that one would expect from a Signet Regency romance novel: she's a heroine that has had a truly hard and horrendous past (her war experiences do not make for easy reading), but who because of her inner strength and indomitable spirit, managed to survive. Some readers may find this novel a little disappointing, because romance-wise, not much happens until the last two chapters. The bulk of the book deals with the duke coming to terms with himself -- his strengths, his weaknesses, his inner demons, and how he wants to go on; as well as the mystery that surrounds Liria. It's a sobering book, as well as a cathartic one -- it runs the gamut from pain and horror to tears and joy. This is definitely a romance novel for readers who need some substance to their 'cream cake' romance diet.
    Personally, I loved this novel, and will be holding on to it for some time.

  • This is a continuation from 'Libby's London Merchant.' When Libby turns down Duke Benedict's offer of marriage, he begins searching his soul as to why Libby would turn down a man with everything for an overweight physician. Benedict finds that he does not like the answers. He decides that he must become a better person, in order to find a wife. Using Libby and Tony for models, Benedict makes conscious efforts to become a more caring person.

    I was so committed to Libby and Benedict as a couple, that I had to wait for almost a year to finish the second book. This book is much more like Kellys'Daughter of Fortune (1985), The Double Cross (2013) and Marco and the Devil's Bargain (2014). In these novels, the author's sharing of history is more central to the book than a romance. Warring sides rarely settled disputes with soft words and polite handshakes; they were often settled with grief, heartache and bloody wars (and many losses). Carla Kelly certain brings home the horror of war in telling the story of Liria Valencia. 4.5 stars

  • Carla Kelly is an immensely readable author. I have read three of her books thus far and will continue. She paints a wonderful picture of the period, with authentic (as far as I can tell, not having been alive during the Regency age) details, speech and sense of place. In this novel, we first meet Benedict Nesbitt, a veteran of various bloody Napoleonic conflicts in Europe (notably Spain). He's a good sort, although a little melancholy and self-absorbed. His path and the path of Liria Valencia cross in a literal way when he somewhat reluctantly rescues her and her child on a highway. The unfolding of these two protagonists' relationship has a great many obstacles, which seems a broadly used leitmotif in romance novels. I am a writer myself and understand the need for conflict and tension, but at times it seems like romance novel characters almost deliberately misapprehend one another (before finally meeting the true versions of themselves), and that was certainly the case in this novel. It was still enjoyable, but I would have liked deeper character development. Also, as one other reviewer noted, I too feel a little uncomfortable with the intense suffering that many of Kelly's female characters undergo, with little to no reward. Despite these criticisms, I am more than willing to pick up another Carla Kelly novel.
