Shirley Kennedy was born and raised in Fresno, California. Unfortunately, Kennedy doesn't deliver. London Belle is okay at best. She now lives with her daughter in Yukon, Oklahoma. I can tolerate a book that has a lot of average characteristics if the author gives me at least one thing that I enjoy.

London Belle is fast paced, emotional, and captures the era to a tee. Shirley's characters are well drawn and she has . With each book, Shirley becomes a stronger writer and more engrossing storyteller. Shirley's characters are well drawn and she has a knack for surprising her reader. I enjoyed her first book "Lady Semple's Secret" and loved "London Belle" even more. Who could resist a story of fortunes lost, family secrets, castle ruins, a jeweled chalice that brings out the best and the worst in those who possess it, and a rogue hero to die for? With each book, Shirley becomes a stronger writer and more engrossing storyteller. If you like Regency, "London Belle" is a must read.

Bobby Kennedy's Family Responds To 'Green Book;' Hear Doc Shirley & Tony Lip's Voices That Dispel Lies Spread About Film. No Best Picture contender has gotten more mud unfairly slung at it this Oscar season than Green Book, the Peter Farrelly-directed drama that earned Oscar nominations for both Mahershala Ali for playing virtuoso pianist Don Shirley, and Viggo Mortensen for playing Tony Lip, the Copacabana bouncer who drove him on a road trip of the Deep South during the Jim Crow segregation.

A desirable young woman chooses to tutor the son of an infamous rake rather than marry a man she does not love, but she soon finds herself instructing her employer in the language of love. Original.

A young woman loses her home and her fortune when her father gambles his whole life away. Rather then marry a horrible man she accepts a job as a young boy's companion. However as the master of the house is away, she is treated more like a servant then the house guest that she was supposed to be. But after befriending the crotchety old man that also lives there, she starts to grow as a person. But has she changed enough for the man of the house to notice her as a woman. I enjoyed the book so much that I really didn't pick up on the lack of sec scenes. Which would make this book perfect for someone who likes a fairly clean historical romance novel.

There's nothing really bad about London Belle but there's nothing really great about it either. The story is about a 19-year old girl who takes on the burden of saving her family because her father abandoned them after a gambling loss. Of course, she's helped and saved by a reformed rake who also happens to be a widower with a son. The characters are predictable, the plot is predictable, the dialogue is predictable, and the almost non-existent sex scenes are luke warm and boring. I can tolerate a book that has a lot of average characteristics if the author gives me at least one thing that I enjoy. Unfortunately, Kennedy doesn't deliver. London Belle is okay at best.

The blurb tells it all, but this author, Shirley Kennedy has a beautiful writing voice of the regency era. It's very visual reading THE LONDON BELLE and it ended up being a one day read because I didn't want to put it down. Lady Jane is a strong character within herself. Anthony is a known rake so everyone in her family is not wanting them together! But in truth, he's a wonderful hero! I always enjoyed the characters of the heroine being a companion or governess and this one was a delight to read! I've read others of this authors and would recommend them too for an enjoyable light and lively reading!

An interesting look at the precarious position of women in Regency England. Two strong characters make the story appealing, even when the story gets a bit predictable. The evil suitor situation needs better resolution, but it is still an entertaining read.

The main character is often referred to as shallow, fitting for a book that is just the same. The characters are unlikable and the plot is unrealistic; there is no depth to either. The story itself has no substance. The ending is predictable and treacly- something a young teenager would write (or thoroughly enjoy reading.) The Kindle version has spelling and grammatical errors that I found distracting. Very dissatisfied with this book.

I can only think Amazon placed this in the wrong category in error. It should be in the section "Written by a Teen for Early Teens."

Do not recommend this.

Disagree with other review on character development. Thoroughly enjoyed all the characters in context with Regency period. Author could have spent a bit less time with the heroine thinking and rethinking about her motives, but in all a story I couldn’t put down.

I do agree that there is little “heat” which is the old Regency story line and one I prefer. Read the paperback, so I don’t know about the Kindle editing omissions which I would have found totally annoying.

Would have liked for the author to close out the other characters, ie, Lady Jane’s family, however, the book does not suffer from this.

If you enjoy the “old” Regency period stories, I fully recommend this book.
Shirley Kennedy can keep this story moving along but it's such a dreary drama. The heroine is proud and stubborn to a fault and sharp-tongued in the bargain. That the hero puts up with her makes no sense. His elderly uncle is one of the only nice characters. I finally had to give it up.
