Travels in August: Isles of Scilly — 18 Comments

  1. I absolutely loved this book and I am still waiting for the film! I haven’t been fortunate enough to travel to the Isles of Scilly but I do know that you must never refer to them as the Scilly Isles within earshot of a native! Shiver me timbers, no never!

    • If you ever visit them, you must give me a full account. I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t title the book “The Scilly Pirates.” It crossed my mind, but never seriously considered it. Thanks, Hazel!

  2. Thanks for the lovely excerpt, and I shall go looking for this book; it seems to be just the kind of summer read I need for relaxing (when I should be grading summer session stories/essays).

    Thanks, Kara!!

  3. I have had your book on my Kindle for a couple months now but haven’t gotten around to starting it. This excerpt is just the incentive I need. When you have so many books stacked up on your “to be read” pile/list, it’s so hard to decide which one to read next!

    • This definitely deserves moving to the top of the pile! It is so much fun. I just love Darcy in this! Well I love the whole thing!

    • I know what that is like! And with 2 young granddaughters, my stack keeps getting bigger and bigger. (I always thought I could get reading done while I watch them – well, NO!) I do hope you’ll enjoy it when you get around to reading it.

  4. I recently read a review on Goodreads for this book which has me moving it from my ‘wishlist’ to my TBR list. I haven’t placed my monthly order for books this month yet as 2 grandchildren are currently visiting me for the past week! I do plan to make it a purchase once they are gone and I have my house back in order! LOL! Haven’t picked up a book since they came except reading to them each night!

  5. I read the book and have the audible version, both of which I absolutely loved! What an amazing story! And, if I remember correctly, there was one dashing, handsome, swoon-worthy pirate amidst the usual smelly, dirty, blood thirsty pirates. I just need to add, I’ve read all your Regency Era stories and have loved them.
