    One thought on “Mr Bishop and the Actress”

    1. After a few "meh" HR I've read of late, was looking for something light and fun. I found it with Mr.Bishop and the Actress, a de-lightful regency romp from start to finish.Mr. Harry Bishop is put in charge to take care of his employee's nephew whom is debt up to his eyeballs and comes upon his employee's nephew Charlie Fordham at the home his mistress a Mrs. Sophie Wallace where the creditors have descended to take everything expect a huge bed, Sophie claims is her and seems to be her pride and [...]

    2. Did my wife kick me out of bed because I kept her up with my loud laughing, snickering, and chortling?: YES.  I was banned from reading this after 9pm, unless I read it in the living room.  Did I keep getting lost in this book every time I thumbed through it to find something to quote?: YES.  I've just spent the last thirty minutes rereading rather than writing this review!Is this the sexiest book I've read that doesn't feature a sex scene?: YES. Sex scenes are certainly hinted at but the rea [...]

    3. I had pretty big expectations starting this one. I've been looking for a working class romance for a while. Not a mésalliance like maid/lord or lady/groom but both H and h not coming from the Ton. I didn't like 1st person POV. Maybe it's beacuse I'm accustomed to 3rd person in this genre. Nonetheless it was hard to read. But the real problem was with heroine. I really didn't like her and couldn't root for her HEA.

    4. A bed is the cornerstone of this book!I almost didn't want to read this book, because I thought it was too silly; but after reading a few pages I was hooked and finished it in a few hours. There were all kinds of misunderstandings with lots of funny parts. Everything turned out OK in the end.

    5. This book is a fine piece of entertaining prose and clever dialogue, but as a romance, I'd say it is lamentably quick. Sophie and Harry are excellent,well-fleshed out characters who clearly have grown to grudgingly like each other and work as excellent foils to the other, but I'm afraid that the bit where they evidently fell head over heels for each other must have slipped me by. if Mullany had let them steam a little longer, put a bit more time for chemistry in the interval between one misunder [...]

    6. Light amusing and enjoyable enough but I didn't like it as much as Improper Relations. I think the romance was less defined in this book - when I really thought about it, I didn't really see the couple fall in love so I didn't believe in it. I could have, but there wasn't enough in the book to really sell me. It did inspire me to re-read Improper Relations - I'll put it back on the TBR.

    7. Once again, Ms. Mullany knocked it out of the park. Her books are like a dry gin & tonic, sweetened with a splash of pink lemonade. In a world of same old-same old Regency plots that take themselves far too seriously, her novels are eminently refreshing and original -- not to mention hysterically funny.

    8. This book was witty and cute perfectly re-readable and leaves the sexy scenes to your imagination. Although the romance is set in the Regency period, this is more of a modern style of thinking for the Hero/Heroine.Writing 4 starsCharacters 4 starsHot scenes - hinted atMystery/pot - 2 stars

    9. What a delightful froth of a book. Charming, well-written, with a real feel for the period and its language, and a comic plot that was actually funny rather than just silly and stupid. Will definitely be picking up others by this author

    10. It was quite funny. It took a while to figure out that Mr.Bishop was attracted to Sophie. And the surprising acceptance of Sophie by Harry Bishop's family was quite different. But I'd definitely recommend you read this one to find out for yourself!

    11. Janet Mullany's book was just sweet and sassy enough to keep my interest. A great romance romp with a couple plot twists and lots of fun moments.

    12. Great writing and dialogue, but I wish she wouldn't use so many misunderstandings in the plot. For the writing, I'll forgive a lot, however.
