perfect
5 stars By Marija, Jun 10 2017
I was a bit hesitant about reading this book, since, while I absolutely loved the first book in the series, I did NOT like Georgina and didn't think I could handle an entire novel about her! But from the very first pages, Kristi Ann Hunter transformed Georgina into a delightfully real, surprisingly likeable character who I found myself loving just as much (and maybe even more!) as Miranda in the first novel. And once again, I just loved every moment with the Hawthorne family - they are just so much fun! I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in what is turning out to be a favourite series.

Beautiful romance
5 stars By Hannah, Jan 14 2017
Just like the first in the series (A Noble Masquerade) this book had me captivated from the first page. I laughed in so many of the scenes, the witty dialogue between Georgina and Colin making me want to read the book fast to get to the next time the main characters met - and yet wanting to prolong the book as long as possible because I didn't want it to be over!  

It was unusual in that it overlapped the first book quite a bit, something I don't usually like, but worked incredibly effectively in this case. As the author says in her note at the start, the book makes complete sense if you haven't read the first one, but it means so much more if you have because of that overlap. I didn't like Georgina in A Noble Masquerade, but suddenly, reading her story, I desperately wanted her to succeed in life, love and faith. There's so much more to her, and Colin, than first meet the eye.  

Brilliantly written with characters (and scenes) I instantly fell in love with, I could not more highly recommend this book. Can't wait to read more by this author.

A Recommended Romance Read
5 stars By Iola, Jul 26 2016
Her characters are intelligent and witty and charming and engaging, her heroes are also intelligent and more than sufficiently swoon-worthy (a word you can really only use in relation to historical romance set in England), her settings are excellent, her writing outstanding, and her Christian themes strong without being overbearing. In other words, close to perfect.

An Elegant Faade is an interesting sequel, in that it starts part-way through A Noble Masquerade rather than after the conclusion. It's focusing on two different characters, so we get to see some of the same events through different eyes. I'm not altogether convinced this is a good idea, but Hunter pulled it off well.


A Noble Masquerade was excellent, and now I've read An Elegant Faade I want to read both books again, back to back, to catch all the minor plot points I no doubt missed because there were so many levels to the writing. Recommended for all lovers of Christian Regency romance.

well written
5 stars By Ibu Guru, May 22 2016
I eagerly looked forward to reading this as I enjoyed the previous two books, and hope there will be more!  Georgina's problem is handled well, with valid attempts to help her.  Kristi has a real gift for writing and I spent some enjoyable hours in "another world" with this book.

Thanks to Bethany House and Netgalley for a free copy to review.
