A midsummer knight’s kiss by Elisabeth Hobbes

A midsummer knight’s kiss by Elisabeth Hobbes is the newest book by Hobbes and it is the third in the Danby Brothers series. It can be read as a stand-alone novel though. The first book in the series is about Hal, a blacksmith, hence the anvil in the picture of the book. I’ve used the same picture for all three books. The second book of the series was Redeeming the Rogue Knight, the story of Roger and Lucy, parents to Robbie, the hero in this third novel. The other two couples and their children appear in this book too, but is not too much and it doesn’t distract from the story, as is sometimes happen in series.

I liked the story. I didn’t find the book as good as the first two in the series, but still worths 5 stars. It is an easy to read, lovely book for the holidays or the Christmas period. One of the things I liked best about the book is that she didn’t feel the need to talk about the amazing stories she wrote before, as other authors do. This was all about the story of the cousins, falling in love, with a twist which makes their story suitable for our contemporary ideas.

  • I like the little anvil you used in the photos. I’m thinking these might be more romance oriented than I usually read, but if the historical aspects are good enough I don’t really mind.

    • It is a romance novel, but the romance in it is not as prominent as it is with other authors. You can give it a try, if you fancy, to see if you like her style.
