Pembroke Park is one of my all time favorite lesbian romances. I don’t re-read many books because as the saying goes “so many books, so little time.” But I do have a small select list of books I like to re-read from time to time and Pembroke Park is right at the top of that list. That alone should help recommend it.
Not being familiar with Regency Romances, I found the era interesting and a nice change from my normal genres of fantasy and mysteries. The story itself is all right, nothing terribly unusual or thought provoking. But what I absolutely adore about the book is Ms. Martin’s mastery of the written word and her wit. I often find myself laughing out loud at particular turns of phrases as I read along. Few authors I have read seem so adept.
