Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady by TL Clark – Review by Jenni Bishop

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady by T.L. Clark is a period romance story set in an era where young women come out to the Ton of England and are paraded around to find the best husband that is deemed worthy by their fathers. Where reputations and gossip are rife and women have no say. It is a story where you hope like hope you don’t get a husband who is too old, or to violent towards you. It is a tale of those who can only hope to be fortunate enough to actually find love and be treated like a lady. I am not a lover of period pieces, as I get to caught up in the ways women are treated but T.L did a good job and I found myself drawn to the story and the main character and how her life became. We take a journey back in time where vulnerability is not to be discussed and snobbery and licentious behavior are a given.

Lady Anne is of age to come out to society and find a suitable husband. She is young, naive and beautiful and finds the road to finding the one is filled with troubles, lies and deceit and heartache. Will she be made to marry someone who cares not for her well being and only in duty or will she indeed be lucky enough to find true love?

If you like period pieces then Regency Love is certainly one to grab.

Self Love by TL Clark – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Self LoveSelf Love by T.L. Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Self Love by TL Clark is the first book I’ve read by this author. This book is a standalone and is recommended for readers 18+ due to some of the content.

Molly is stubborn and independent. She’s also generous and caring. There’s a lot of facets to Molly but she’s pretty self- deprecating as well. She really focuses on her faults and the negatives rather than any real positive where she is concerned. Molly deals with a lot throughout this book. As the book went on, I was definitely rooting for her. I pretty easily connected with Molly as I’ve faced similar issues. That connection made her real and really pulled me into the book more than I originally thought I would be pulled in. I was hesitant when I started this book but I’m glad I took a chance anyways because I would have missed out on a good book otherwise!

Self Love: A British Tale of Woe and Wit by TL Clark. While I did feel this story had a bit of a slow beginning and didn’t immediately draw me in, once it picked up a bit I found myself lost in it’s pages. Molly is trying to figure out who she is in this crazy big world. She’s a bit on the downer side when it comes to her view of herself but I can honestly say I connected with her on many levels even though I hate to think that at times. You truly get to see inside the head space of Molly and it’s quite the ride. This story took me on a bit of an emotional journey right along with Molly. It’s a bit different from this authors other books and for that alone I was excited because I love the others and it’s nice to see an author right in more genres. The storyline is well written and easy to follow and I really did love the characters. I’m giving this book a four star review and recommend it to everyone.

Self Love: A British Tale of Woe and Wit by TL Clark was not what I was expecting if you know what I mean and I’m actually glad it wasn’t.

Molly was a funny and wonderful woman who needed to learn her self worth. I could so relate to her and her issues with body image and not feeling like she was enough. Her experiences were interesting and some were amusing while there were a few that broke my heart.

Though I like the way it ended I could have seen this going in a much different direction for Molly.

I have not had the pleasure of reading anything by Ms. Clark before but this was a great introduction.

Self Love: A British Tale of Woe and Wit by TL Clark is an easy read an a great way to pass a few hours.
The book is about Molly, a florist who is hoping to be able to change her ways in order to find happiness. It is a story that most will be able to relate to in one way or another as there isn’t ever a person that hasn’t questioned things at one time or another.
The story to the story is a bit awkward I found. It felt a little difficult to get through and to engage with. However I am pleased I stuck with it as for the most part the story was enjoyable and it even had me laughing at times. I especially liked that the humour was very British. Being British myself I find it appealing when I come across a book that has this type of humour to it. All in all a good book.

“Self Love” by TL Clark is a lovely story about an overweight, unhappy woman named Molly and her challenges in life. Molly owns her own floral business and is always around very happy brides to be which tends to bring her down as she can’t find love herself. Add in an overbearing mother who can’t say anything nice and general low self-esteem and Molly is a bit of a wreck. Molly is a very relatable character who says so many things I’ve heard many woman, including myself, say before. Her struggles are very real and honest and that makes her quite lovable to me. I found the story to be a less raunchy “Bridget Jones” type story filled with fun British terms and written almost as a diary. TL Clark’s story is one I believe many women could benefit from reading as the moral is the title and that self love is necessary and important to us all. If you like a sweet romance, or if you struggle at all with loving yourself then please read this book! I give “Self Love” by TL Clark four stars!

Self Love : A British Tale of Woe and Wit By TL Clark is book that pulled at my strings because I can totally relate to Molly and her self doubts.So get ready to be taken on a journey of growth and I think determination. There is some drama and some parts for me were emotional. This isn’t my first read by this author but my first non-paranormal book from her. I was hooked from the beginning and had a hard time putting it down, I had to know how things turned out. Molly is a woman who is opening her own florist business. She is a stubborn woman but is also very caring, compassionate and giving.Molly doesn’t give her self much credit, she doesn’t see what others may see.she seems to look at her faults instead of focusing on the good. She can get sad,feel lonely and depressed. Can Molly find her true happiness?Will she find Love? Can she find Self-Love? Find out the answers to these questions and many more you will have by reading this book.i cant wait to read more from this author.

Honestly, I had a hard time with this book. I love this author. I love her detail to her characters. The plots she develops are both complex and simple at the same time. And this book is no different. The story development was exactly the right pace for Molly and Nick, the two main characters. Molly has some major body issues. She spends most of the book in one form of self deprecation mode or another. My heart was breaking for her each time I read a statement where she dragged herself through the mud again. Nick, for all that he is, is getting her to see herself for what she is worth, not what she has fabricated insider her head. Molly and Nick’s relationship was hard won, and if it was not for some EXTREME patience on Nick’s side and some serious come to Jesus understanding on Molly’s, I am not sure these two would have panned out.

I struggled rating this book because reading a character over and over again who was constantly berating herself was getting tiresome, but Nick was a solid character and I grew to love the two of them together. The technical structure of the book was near flawless. The paragraphs were full, The plot easily flowed and I kept up with the storyline easily enough. For those alone, I had to give a full star because writing a book on its own is hard work and the rest was just my personal opinion. I recommend this book for book clubs.

Self Love: A British Tale of Woe and Wit by TL Clark is rather a sad tale of one woman who has been beaten down all her life by most everyone she meets who have exacting ideas on what a woman should look like. It is a journey of self discovery and becoming comfortable to be who you are and hopefully finding the one who could be your forever love. A story of finding what makes you happy and deciding to make that happen. A story of finally being honest with yourself and those around you even if it means tough love and finally speaking out for yourself.

I really enjoyed this story, it made me laugh and the way in which the author wrote the story made me feel really engaged with the main character. It was almost like I was reading her diary and living her life with her. The pace of the story was quite slow and the author did go into detail which in some parts was maybe a little too much but I still thought that it was a really good read. I really appreciated the British humour in the story too. I thought that the flow of the story was good and the writing really smooth – I found it really easy to read. I really felt a connection with Molly, the main character, I thought that she was really relatable and I did like her, although she did tend to apologise a lot!!
Overall I thought that this was a really enjoyable read and I would definitely recommend it to other readers!
