    This review was written for Brentwood's Ward.
    I don't give out a lot of five star reviews. Mostly for the reason that I want it to be rare and special. I've read a few reviewers who stated that they give five stars unless there is something seriously wrong with the book. A three star review means good...and mine do. A five star review means I lost a significant amount of sleep, and that I was like a child waiting for recess in getting back to the book.

    This book did that for me. Several books lately have taken me a bit of time to really feel "in" the book. That was not the case with this one. I started and simply didn't want to put it down!

    The mystery, intrigue, characters, and plot are all simply marvelous! I love the heroine as she has such a hard time with any restraints. I also like the hero and the faith thread he brings to the story. I can't wait to read another novel by Michelle Griep!

    If you are a fan of regency novels, this is a book you will probably like.

    Nicholas Brentwood is a fabulous character right from the beginning of the story and straight through to the end. I really enjoyed the way he handled Emily Payne at the beginning of the book as he dealt with all of her antics and snobbishness. And I loved watching the way his feelings changed for Emily as the story progressed.

    Now, Emily Payne is a character that I flat out did not like at the beginning of the book. She appeared snobbish, selfish, and clueless. But, I learned as I kept reading that there were some reasons behind this behavior of hers and this knowledge helped me to understand her better. She ended up growing a lot through the story and became a very likeable character. She did continue to be a very clueless lady in regards to her safety and she took risks that sometimes were hard to comprehend.

    I ended up liking this story very much. It had lots of danger, twists and turns, suspense, and romance. I definitely recommend it to fans of regency fiction.

    Brentwoods Ward is by author Michelle Griep who is a brand new author for me and one I discovered that I thoroughly enjoyed reading her work

    Emily Payne has no intention of submitting to her fathers wishes that she have a guardian while he is away on an extended business trip. Determined not to give up one ounce of her freedom, Emily sets out to see just how much this guardian of her can take.

    After only one day, Nicholas Brentwood begins to realize that this new assignment is going to be a very long three weeks. His ward seems to be able to irritate him at every turn, whether in word or action. But when Nicholas realizes that Emily has gotten into his heart, Nicholas knows that God has but this woman into his life for a reason.

    There were several aspects to this book that I adored. First, that fact that Nicholas was a bow street detective. I have read about them in other books and have also done my own research. They were considered mostly to be thugs and thieves so I liked the fact that Nicholas was a detective and had morals and integrity and the fact that Bow Street agency was a prelude to the modern police force.

    The faith in God that Nicholas displayed and how he depended on God for everything was a great character attribute. Not many Christian writers write that kind of faith.

    Emilys character was also amazing. At the beginning Emily was a rich, spoiled socialite who lived up to her last name, collected to many hats and was determined to marry eligible bachelor Charles Henley. However watching her develope into a young woman who comes to understand who God really is, how much He loves her, and begins to reorganize her lifes priorities.

    The only downside to this book was a the attempted assault scene on Emily. While it was not graphic, there was enough description to make me wonder why a Christian book would include it. There really was no reason for it and it could have been written differently with the same effect. If you have a teen likes historical fiction and wants to read it and are a parent I would urge you to read it before you give it to her. Some might think its no big deal while other might take a different view.

    Overall it was a marvelous book and I would not hesitate to recommend it, but with the warning mentioned above.
