A lot of Regency romance stories are fun reads but are frivolous with pretty light story lines. In spite of Poppy's simple title, her story has a richer storyline, but it's also pure Regency romance a la Ms. Beaton - very entertaining.
M.C. Beaton the great story teller. Page turner novels, romance, suspense, humor and social standards of that period, vivid descriptions. Just wonderful
Nice book, loved the main characters.
Very nice book. Very pleased. A++++++++++Very good service.
An engaging heroine, a typical duke, and a rags to riches story make for an enjoyable read. Classic Chesney romance set in the Edwardian era.
I haven't been this author's biggest fan but decided to take the opportunity to read more of her work for free on KU. I really enjoyed this story. Again it's not particularly romantic but the storyline was more developed. I didn't expect much because the idea of a person from the slums ending up with a Duke had me rolling my eyes. It turns out that the h is such a great character that you along with everyone else is rooting for her to make it. She is beautiful and has an extraordinary voice and she first gets a job as a chorus singer. She needs to earn money to support her sisters as her father is a drunken wastrel. She attracts some admirers and she decides to marry one because she needs to pay back rent for her house after her father squandered her money. Her husband turns out to be a Duke's nephew and she is launched into the rarified atmosphere of that family. Unfortunately her husband is also a drunk and he dies in a car accident soon after their marriage. The Duke, who is the H, and the h have a complicated relationship and there is chemistry from the start. He struggles to overcome his prejudice of her and her upbringing. There is a bumpy road to the hea.
"Poppy" is the lovely story of Penelope (Penny-lope) Smith, born and raised in the London slums, who sings like an angel. In an effort to support herself and her two young sisters, she becomes a "Lewis Girl," singing in a theater, calling herself Poppy Duveen.

In desperation she marries Freddie Plummett, only to learn that he is a wastrel, expecting his wealthy uncle to pay his drinking and gambling debts.

That's just the beginning. For the rest of this story, you need to read the book. I really enjoy Ms. Chesney's romances. They are not deep, soul-searching stories, just charming, pleasant romances to enjoy while curled up in your favorite chair.
Penelope Smith - always called Penny-lope - lived in Cutler's Fields a slum area of London. She had two younger sisters and a drunken father and a beautiful singing voice. On the spur of the moment she decides to attend an audition and gets the part.

She hopes to make a success of her career on the theatre to give her young sisters a better start in life. Her voice and her beauty attract the attention of many young men and Penelope - now renamed Poppy Duveen - marries Freddie Plummett because he promises to pay the outstanding rent for her father and sisters. It's quickly obvious she has made a bad choice.

What happens when Poppy starts moving in aristocratic circles makes an entertaining and at times poignant romance set in the Edwardian era. There are many who wish her ill not least the Duke of Guildham's current mistress - Freda - who sees Poppy as a rival.

I enjoyed reading this fast paced story with its background of the musical theatre and its heroes and villains. I thought the characters were well drawn and the plot interesting. Poppy shows a great deal of courage not just in making her own life but in looking after her sisters. If you want a good light read to curl up with on a winter's afternoon or evening then give this a try - or any of the books in the Edwardian Candlelight series.
