    I could barely turn the pages quickly enough to find out!   With superior characters, a clever plot, and more than enough intrigue to keep things interesting, ANNABELLE'S COURTSHIP kept me entertained from beginning to end. - 4.5 Stars, Blue Ribbon Reviews

    I was pulled in to the book and cheered for some characters and mentally boo’d others.  I thoroughly enjoyed how she wove the fact that appearances are not everything into the story, as we find Annabelle is anything but plain and ordinary.  I am a huge fan of both this genre and Ms. Monroe’s writing and Annabelle’s Courtship only helps to further cement this feeling. ~ Joyfully Reviewed

Beautifully written to illustrate the characters and opinions of the people of this era, Annabelle’s Courtship is true Regency at its best. - 4 Cups, CoffeeTime Romance

    Ms. Monroe keeps the readers hooked with her unique and memorable characters and uncanny twists as the story flows. - 5 Stars, LibraryThing

    In the end, Annabelle's Courtship is all about trust, and the wondrous events which come to pass when it is combined with love. - Four Angels ~ FAR
