Love's Harbinger - Joan Smith. He pulled a chair up beside them, leaned forward, and said in a calm, businesslike way, What can I do for you? When Lady Lynne found a voice, her niece observed that it was her low, crooning voice usually reserved for seduction. In a flash she foresaw that the interview would not go as planned, unless she made it go that way. We’ve come about that naughty article in your paper, Mr. Delamar, Lady Lynne said, coquettishly waving a finger. There was a bantering light in the tiger’s eyes.

I don't recall ever giving one of Joan Smith's books two stars. She's one of my favorite authors for relaxing reads, especially late at night when I need something I can finish in about two hours before falling asleep.

This was probably the most frustrating read I've had in a long time. The H/h were at cross purposes during most of the story which was a shame because the hero, Jack Gamble, could have made a great leading man and the heroine, Chloe, had a lot of spit and fire to her personality, which she needed in her world that revolved around taking care of the family estate so her younger brother could while away his time as a poet.

There's trouble in the village what with an unprincipled investor attempting to makeover the township by hook or by crook. Chloe hates the way he's turning everything toward commercialism but has no way to stop the progress, barely managing to keep her family estate afloat. Jack Gamble, recently returned from India where he made his fortune, is a mixed bag throughout most of the book. At first, he makes up to his 18 year old cousin, Emily, and even goes so far as to ask her to marry him. He's 35 and needs a young nubile wife but of course the reader knows he belongs with Chloe and Emily belongs with Edward, Chloe's poetry spouting brother. Then Jack has his own ideas for the village and surrounding area, but in the process Chloe is deceived into thinking Jack is working with the unprincipled investor.

So, basically, everything is continually nutty in that Chloe is continually misunderstanding Jack - with good reason. I could not like his character the way he was portrayed in the book. Even knowing that eventually he and Chloe would get it right, I am still frustrated at myself for sticking with this book when I could see the handwriting on the wall 1/2 of the way through. No peace, no savoring, no sweetness - just angst and misunderstanding and arguments all the way through the darn story.
I find it difficult to rate Joan Smith romances because I have a tendency to compare among her novels and rate according to how each book fares against my favorite Smith romances. If half stars were available, I probably would have rated Love's Way a 3.5: it is not one my favorite Joan Smith novels, but even her three star books are far and away better than most romances out there.

Love's Way is written in first-person from the heroine Chloe's perspective. Chloe is in her mid-twenties and has been forced to take on the management of her family's estate Ambledown as her younger brother Edward fritters away his time writing poetry. Because their family, which also includes an Aunt Nora, is always on the edge of financial disaster, Chloe is less than pleased when their beautiful young neighbor, Lady Emily, starts throwing herself at Edward. A simple morning visit has alerted Chloe and Aunt Nora to the fact that Lady Emily has no dowry and her father is drinking away their estate, Carnforth Hall. If Edward marries poor Emily, Chloe will have to suck it up and marry her long-suffering beau Tom Carrick, who she can't even stand to kiss! On top of these problems, Chloe is becoming increasingly aggravated and suspicious about the tacky redevelopment plans and new construction that village entrepreneur Captain Wingdale is foisting on the neighborhood to maximize profits off Lake District tourists.

Where is the hero you ask? Black Jack Gamble, Emily's cousin and heir to Carnforth Hall, shows up fairly early in the novel. A handsome and wealthy nabob recently returned from India, Jack embroils himself in village affairs and romances alike, including one with aforementioned Emily. Chloe has a hard time figuring Jack out: is he truly concerned about the desecration of the village or is he actually worse than Wingdale? Is he taking advantage of Emily or is Emily using Jack to make Edward jealous?

Because there is so much attention on the village redevelopment, heavy description of the landscape (at one point, Chloe notes that "I have digressed into a travel brochure"), and Jack's romantic relationship with two other ladies, the romance in this novel doesn't have a lot of oomph. Additionally, Chloe is not as likeable as most of Smith's heroines: she is very sharp, often angry, and not very pleasant. To be clear: her attitude is reasonable based on the circumstances, but her shrewish behavior made me wonder why Jack was even interested in her. While characterization was strong and the hero was attractive, the novel did not really have many other loveable or likeable side characters besides Emily, who is manipulative in a charming way.

So overall, I would say that if you are not solely focused on romance, Love's Way, is an entertaining and well-written, though not heartwarming or comic. Once I let go of the fact that it wasn't going to be a swooning romance, I actually enjoyed reading about the village redevelopment plans, sheep raising, and poetry, which are just a few of the topics Smith squeezed into the book!
Not the most sympathetic heroine. It was a fairly convoluted plot. No one actually was likable. I am glad this was the first of her novels I read. May not have read any others, and generally she is pretty good.
The heroine is harassed, the hero is misunderstood, each character is portrayed in unforgettable detail, and the story itself, original, suspenseful, and surprising as well as altogether satisfyng!
Read it for a comfortable feeling that lasts for days. You will be ready to leave for the lake country tomorrow!
I enjoyed this clean Recency because it was so different. The entire novel takes place in a small town in the English countryside; there are no trips to Hyde Park nor nights at Almacks. Ms Smith skips all the usual tropes. This was a refreshing change.
