My Review – 5 Stars

Another fabulously developed and well-written tale of passion, heartbreak, and love by Katy Regnery. She flawlessly brings her words to life, making her characters and their world seem real. I felt as if they were my family and friends. I wanted to comfort and console them, reprimand and berate them, and celebrate their success and happiness. I felt every emotion as they experienced them, and I couldn’t help but adore, not only Priscilla and Shane, but the secondary characters as well. Added to that, each character had their own voice. It’s incredible how the speech patterns and thought processes are so individualized. It’s almost as if Priscilla and Shane were written by two different people. And I loved the lack of angst between this couple. Most of the drama was family related or occurred early on in their relationship. Communication is key, and Priscilla and Shane nailed it!

I immediately fell in love with Priscilla! She was fun, saucy, sweet, and caring. I was rooting for her from the start. And I was excited to see what she had in store for Shane. It had me grinning from ear to ear. This story warmed my heart. I was giddy and nervous about the journey Priscilla and Shane were going to take. It’s clear from the beginning that there was an underlying playfulness and attraction between the two, yet they weren’t quite sure how to deal with it. Each had struggled their entire lives to break out of the molds of their families only to find themselves wanting someone completely opposite of themselves.

Shane was exasperating! I loved him so much, but I was dying for him to let go and lose himself in Priscilla. He was so proper and gentlemanly all the time. Shane’s unease and almost childlike uncertainty endeared him to me. The way he and Priscilla pushed at each other and how Shane tried to keep it all strictly business broke my heart. I was also devastated by the way Priscilla was treated by her family and then chose to suppress her true self to fit into Shane’s ideal for success. It was like watching a wild stallion being tamed. However, Shane brought the best out in Priscilla, as she did him, and I loved watching them grow together.



Priscilla Story, the self-proclaimed “wild child” of the straight-laced Story clan, has always had a knack for getting herself trouble. Except this time, her “growing problem” is going to require a Daddy sooner than later…or she can kiss her inheritance good-bye.

Shane Olson, who previously dated Priscilla’s sister, Margaret, isn’t opposed to a marriage of convenience for the sake of furthering his business interests, but Priscilla – with her wild ways – is just about the last woman he’d choose to marry.

In order to make the marriage look convincing, they end up having to spend more time together than they’d originally planned. When rolling stone, Priscilla, who lives by the seat of her muu-muu, and seriously-ambitious Shane, who’s had his whole life planned since he was eleven, start falling for each other, it’s going to take a whole lot of compromise for this Bohemian and her Businessman to find their happily ever after.


About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
