More from Robin

Have you ever been judged on the basis of your appearance – what you weigh, how you dress, how you wear your hair or do your makeup? I am a professional dieter, and I have been on all of them. I lose, and I gain it back. I know the lengths a woman will go to after she overhears remarks about how she looks, so I relate to Elizabeth in More to Love in a way that’s a bit beyond my comfort zone. Another aspect of this book which is personal is that I chose to base a supporting character on a wonderful, Christian lady at my church (with her permission). Mrs. Donna Bailey has been a constant encouragement to me in regards to my writing. She often gives me beautiful sugar cookies she painstakingly decorates with holiday themes. Mrs. Bailey is the housekeeper and dessert cook at Longbourn, and she helps Elizabeth through thick and thin, so to speak.

My Review

More to Love is the first book I have read by Robin M Helm. This first installment from her series, My Beloved, My Friend, is a retelling of Jane Austen's well known novel, Pride and Prejudice. It was an interesting take of the story. The twist is Elizabeth Bennett is not physically the same. She has issues with overeating and lack of activity. And Darcy not so nice about it.

More to Love is not at all how I imagined before reading. I did not find it predictable and enjoyed the true to life characters, action, adventure and romance. I thought the story was fun, delightful, and uniquely written.

I give More to Love four stars. I am looking forward to finding out what happens next in the My Beloved, My Friend series. I would love to read other books by Robin M Helm. I recommend this one for readers who enjoy lean historical romance.

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
