The Husband Campaign ThatWasSuchAGoodBook I enjoyed it Totally recommend to anyone who's looking for a uickyet enjoyable read The Husband Campaign is another excellent Regency novel by Regina Scott the final installment of “The Master Matchmakers” series I would recommend it to any fan of Regency fiction or historical Christian fiction in generalLady Amelia Jacoby finds herself compromised by the standards of her time; having spent the night in the company of John Lord Hascot in an outbuilding to shelter from an unexpected storm she is expected to marry him But in The Wife Campaign Amelia declares she will not marry except for love For her this seems to be the answer to her prayers no man will have her with her tarnished reputation and she will be freed from the matches her father desires for her to increase his own standing in society Things do not work out that way however and the pressure brought to bear by her parents results in her marrying John The campaign comes in when she realizes that she loves her husband and wants to win his heart to make their marriage than the in name only version they originally agreed toWhat really amazes me about Ms Scott's writing is how very deep she takes us within the main characters' interior lives in a relatively shorter novel For example we learn a lot about Amelia's and John's pasts and their family situations how she grew up in a family where she was not valued merely because she was a female and not the heir her father wanted nor even really the daughter her mother wanted John on the other hand while he values Amelia and thinks her parents' treatment of her shameful finds it hard to trust anyone because of his past and the woman who betrayed him for his brother and his brother’s title Watching the resolution of these obstacles in their relationship with God's help was beautifully written and a satisfying readFilled with Regency detail and a story of overcoming our pasts to become the people God designed us to be The Husband Campaign is one book that has found a permanent place on my “keeper” shelfI received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for this honest review I really enjoyed this one I read it out of order but didn't feel like I missed anything It can stand on its own but still has me wanting to go back and read the first two books I simply read this one first because I always enjoy a marriage of convenience storylineAnyway Amelia gets stuck in a storm and seeks shelter in an old barn She doesn't realize it belongs to the reclusive Lord Hascot John is also seeking shelter from the storm when he discovers Amelia in his barn Even though they spent an innocent night together tongues start wagging and John offers Amelia a marriage of convenience Amelia is looking forward to getting away from her overbearing and uncaring parents and thinks things could only be better with Lord HascotI liked Amelia uite a bit She is used to being timid and obedient to her parents but under John's care she begins to discover herself and her backbone I liked the growth she went through I also liked John uite a bit He is a bit of a grump but has a kind heart I thought they were well suited I liked that John wasn't your typical Regency hero he has a minor title but his passion is breeding and caringtraining horses I loved that part of the storyLike most stories there has to be some bumps along the road to Happily Ever After and those take the form of John's former love and sister in law Lady Caroline and her beau and a surprise visitor There is a mild mystery can hardly call it that but for the most part it's just a pleasant read I liked it and would recommend it to regency fansContentRomance Clean view spoilerMild talk about not consummating the marriage until they are ready and mild gossip about how they haven't consummated the marriage Mild talk about children and her disappointment in possibly not having any Otherwise just a few chaste kisses hide spoiler A pleasing readI found John a fascinating character if somewhat underdevelopedWe come to know him through his horses and his treatment of them rather than through himself In fact his knowledge of horse his commitment to them is awesomeIf only he could transfer that knowing to his marital self I felt very impatient with him in his behaviour towards AmeliaWe do see that he is an honourable man albeit damaged and lacking self confidence in relationships I know he was forced into marrying Amelia Maybe he should have left her in the barn in the first place but he was acting out of concern with integrity And let's not forget the eraAmelia is rather a lovely person who has been disappointed constantly by family and then by JohnShe works unerringly to overcome John's coolness towards her I hate that she has to keep proving herself time and againAll the aspects are here Brooding misunderstood hero whimsical heroic wife capricious sister in law a dastardly villain an unloving fatherI loved the staff at their house How they supported the pair of them in small waysYes it had it all including the biblical uotes that directed our main characters actions and helped us readers to reflect on their actions over against the biblical injunctions Amelia is certainly forbearing and both she and to some extent John do acknowledge their source of spiritual sustenance and work to have that direct their lives To me some of the scriptural verses seemed forced into the story Amelia's behaviour and reactions implicitly expressed her faith perspective Indeed the description of John's room with it's well worn bible is a fine example of such implicitness Moments such as these are strong statements by themselves that need no further embellishmentI truly felt for Amelia's predicament and her attempts to show John that she is a worthy wife a pearl to be treasured a jewel Indeed in a latter scene he realizes this That scene tenderly closes the journey that has been theirs thus far The door for a fulfilling life together has openedA NetGalley ARC Hmmm I enjoyed this book but not uite as much as the previous books in the seriesWhat I loved John Particularly the way he related everything back to what he knew and understood horses Seriously when someone can think in terms of breeding and bloodlines and make me not want to slap him but almost be endeared to him for it you know there's something special For the record it was only one or two comments but usually that kind of talk makes me want to throw the book or at least the character out the windowThe fact that neither of them was enthusiastic about the proposed relationship Amelia's reluctance was a bit of a surprise to me but it made things much better than if she had been the eager bride trying to win over a reluctant husband from the beginning I was curious how they were ever even going to end up together for a while Nicely doneThe horses Particularly the way John and Amelia interacted with them and brought their personalities to light Loved itWhat I didn't like so much The main characters felt a bit confusing at times not always in a good and relatable way Their thoughts on certain issues seemed to flip flop a bit or maybe I just didn't get enough information to understand the seeming inconsistencies view spoilerAmelia goes from at least I'll have children to scared to death at the thought of their wedding night and relieved when they don't sleep together to aren't we ever going to have children? in the space of a couple of chapters Huh? And John can't seem to make up his mind between stop changing things and do whatever you want with the house; I like what you're doing hide spoiler When Amelia Jacoby seeks shelter from a storm in an old barn she doesn't expect the owner Lord Hascot to come upon her there She also doesn't expect to fall asleep and not have help arrive until morning As it is John offers to marry her She refuses but after family pressure they enter a marriage of convenienceAmelia has spent her life trying to please her parents and never gaining their approval Now she sets out with a new goal to first make her new home habitable and second to win her husband's love Emotionally distant after being betrayed by the woman he loved John Hascot's closest relationships are to the horses he breeds and trains Can Amelia break down his walls and find a place in his heart?The Husband Campaign is the third book in the Master Matchmaker series Having read the first book but not second I will say that you can read this book alone As the second book The Wife Campaign had Amelia in it as well you might still want to read it first but I did not feel lost without itThe Husband Campaign was very enjoyable It had romance but also a mystery involving a mysterious person spying on the couple unannounced guests and scheming relations I loved seeing Amelia and John's relationship develop I liked seeing how Amelia grew after being a doormat for many years to going after what she really wanted and making the best of her situationI'd recommend it to fans of Christian Fiction although it wasn't too preachy fans of regency romance and fans of Regina Scott's other books In this fun and well detailed story horses play a large part During a Derbyshire thunderstorm John Lord Hascot and Lady Amelia Jacoby who is visiting his neighbour take shelter in the same barn They each take care of their mounts' needs but John doesn't know how to talk to fine ladies while Amelia rode out unaccompanied to escape her mother's latest strictures Since they spend time alone John feels obliged to offer for her hand She politely says that won't be necessary but both know that can't be the end of the matter Instructed by the girl's father to marry her John feels obliged if he is to retain his self respect He's a mere country baron; on the other hand he breeds valuable horses Lady Amelia lives a browbeaten life with family in London She had expected to marry better than a dour northerner John tells her that he will honour his vows allow her money and treat her with respect Amelia thinks that it might not be a bad bargain after all I swiftly got to like this pair and enjoyed seeing how they coped Amelia is properly devout and John insists they marry in her local church rather than by private licence His bleak stone house is dark and uninviting while the new wife isn't welcome in the stables Amelia's maid Turner demonstrates how the lady of the house establishes her status Turner is a splendid plain speaking local girl John has a personal reason for distrusting his heart or a woman's which adds depth Amelia wins the reader as well when she decides to win her husband's loveI loved all the horsey titbits though the word cinch is not English; girth is correct I'll cinch you all up no that's entirely American Other characters include a local dowager intent on spiteful gossip and the merry widow of John's older brother who turns up during summer with a cavalry major in tow THE HUSBAND CAMPAIGN resembles a Jane Austen tale Regina Scott has filled her inspirational story with characters both two legged and four legged and the romance can be read without blushing Review on on my blog to be posted 51 Husband Campaign is the third and final book in The Master Matchmakers series and my favorite While the first two were great reads I just really loved this story It was kind of like a marriage of convenience storyline which I liked and the characters were wonderfulIn book two we were introduced to Lord Hascot John and Amelia so I loved getting to know both of their characters better I really liked the change in Amelia and how she became bold I also felt bad for John because of the way Caro treated himThe romance was so sweet and I loved the ending Another thing I enjoyed was how John raisescares for horses I thought that was a very interesting aspect in The Husband CampaignOverall I loved this book While The Husband Campaign is the third book in the series I think it can still be read as a stand alone I recommend itDisclosure of Material Connection I received one or of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mentionreview it on my blog I was not reuired to give a positive review only my honest opinion which I've done All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own and I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising A Marriage of Necessity The moment John Lord Hascot encounters a young woman sheltering in his abandoned stable his future is sealed To prevent scandal and protect Lady Amelia Jacoby from her parents' ire he must propose John's ability to trust vanished when his former love married his twin brother Yet he offers Amelia everything she could want except affection Amelia sees John's true nature shine through when he cares for his horses But the brooding aristocrat seems determined to keep her at arm's length Little by little Amelia will turn Hollyoak Farm into a home but can she turn a marriage of convenience into a joyful union The Master Matchmakers Wedding bells will ring when downstairs servants play Cupid for upstairs aristocracy Amelia was running from a fight with her mother and ended up in the stable of John’s farm He finds her and she spends the night sleeping in the stable with him keeping watch The only way that Amelia’s reputation will remain intact is for John to propose At first Amelia thinks she finds a way to avoid marring John but her parents get their way and she is soon wed to a man who does not love her She hopes to run his house and with time win his heart This is the third and last book in this series I very much enjoyed this bookWhat I liked Amelia so wanted her father to love her Yet he marries her off for his own gain Even though her situation is frustrating she remains positive and works to get to know her husband and make her marriage work John see’s through her father’s antics and wants to do right by Amelia but he struggles with his past He has closed off his heart due to another woman’s rejection I thought both main characters did a good job of working through their trialsWhat I did not like This book was very well written and nothing really bothered me in this book Over all this was a good book There was some suspense in this book though a little predictable I also liked how the horses were written about in this book Made for some funny moments This book can be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend going back and reading the series from the beginninghttpabbiesreadingcornercom20140
