Advance Praise for A Convenient Fiction

“A sumptuous and instantly readable addition to what has become one of my favourite series…Brimming with intelligence and pitch-perfect dialogue, Alex Archer’s troubled past intersects his promising present with the alluring and independent Laura…I cannot wait to return to Devon again. Nor to Matthews’ inimitable magic — she owns this period!” -Rachel McMillan, author of the Herringford and Watts mysteries

“With beautiful prose, faultless historical details, vivid characterisations ‘A Convenient Fiction’ is pure jouissance. Ms Matthews is without a doubt currently the finest writer of historical romance.” -Jill M., NetGalley

“I think this is my favorite of the orphan series so far, and it has everything. Daring rescues, references to Victorian beauty routines, extensive seaside information and even swimming. In the Victorian era! It was so good.” -Bonnie G., NetGalley

“[Matthews] knows how to write a scoundrel and how to redeem him…Another jewel from this author.” -Luli, L., NetGalley

“Mimi Matthews knows how to draw the reader in from the very beginning of the story. Her writing is a joy to read. I did not want the story to end!” -Corinne, L. NetGalley

I read “A Convenient Fiction,” not quite, but almost in one gulp. It is a love of a book like all your others. And now you’re telling me I have to wait until next FEBRUARY for the next in the series?
