  • Penny Reid
    I'll read anything Lisa Kleypas writes. I love her books.
  • Anne
    3.5 starsThis was pretty cute. Then again, anything from Kleypas usually is, so that's no great surprise, is it? I was surprised that I liked this one quite a bit better than Devil in Spring, though. Then again, I was looking forward to that one, and Hello Stranger...not so much. There wasn't much about Garrett in the past books that got me excited to read her story. It's not as though I disliked her character, but she seemed somewhat dull - not ...

    Title: Hello StrangerSeries: The Ravenels #4Author: Lisa KleypasRelease date: February 27, 2018Cliffhanger: NoHEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]Lisa Kleypas writes in a way that reminds me why I fell in love with reading romance. There was a simplicity to the story, while her way of expressing it was anything but. There were so many times I just stopped and stared at the eloquence of her beautifully descriptive writing, because it was just to...

    Spoilers aheadHello Stranger is, in my opinion, the weakest instalment yet in the Ravenel series; which, after finishing it last night and taking a step back to mull over, seems to be an oxymoron in the context of the series. - No obnoxious behaviour like Kathleen and Devon showed.- No character transplant of Rhys Winterbourne and Helen’s angelic delicacy that sent me to sleep.- No ADHD Pandora and Gabriel whose most shocking kink is bondage li...

    4.5 STARS This woman owned the sum of him, his tenderness and violence, everything good or bad. All.Of.The. Swoons.*dreamy sigh*I am not typically a reader that enjoys the instant connection and road to love that was shared between Garrett and Ransom, but boy did it ever work for me here. I can't even tell you why. I think it was a combination of several things, starting from wonderfully crafted and multilayered characters and ending with an en...

    Reto #34 PopSugar 2018: Un libro publicado en 2018 ¡¡Una delicia de lectura!! La serie Ravenel definitivamente quiere destronar a la familia Hathaway. Todo justo, maravilloso; absolutamente nada me sobró ni me faltó (bueno, quizá un epílogo, pero sólo de gazuza). Personajes principales adorables y secundarios que ya se han ganado el corazón de sus lectores.Lisa Kleypas no sólo crea romances de ensueño, sino que cada vez se supera más a...

    My original "review" is at the bottom.Originally posted HERE .Hello Stranger, the fourth instalment in Lisa Kleypas’ Ravenels series, is a highly anticipated read for many. Garrett, England’s first female doctor, and Ethan, mysterious and with curious ties to the Ravenel family, have been background characters in the past two books.This is a book that builds and builds. The two characters have met a few times before the story begins, but the...
  • Jilly
    Garret is a the first female doctor in London who talks endlessly about how independent and strong she is. Then, she meets Ethan and it's over. She throws herself at this guy so shamelessly that feminists everywhere gave a giant embarrassed groan. She literally begged this guy to kiss her. And, I'm using the word literally correctly in that sentence. That's how bad it was!Aw, maybe that's what happened. Did you try running it under hot water?I re...
  • OLT
    (2.5 stars) Well, darn. I think it's official. I'm divorcing Lisa Kleypas. She's almost batting 0 for me in her latest Ravenel series, none of which are better than 3-star books, IMO. Even this one, which I had high hopes for, turned out to be a dud, with its slight romance of two underdeveloped characters mixed with a whole lot of historical information dumping. The H/h relationship doesn't develop. It just is. They decide early on they want eac...
  • Mei
    I was afraid to start this book… many of my friends didn’t liked it and I didn’t like very much the previous books, so you can understand my fear…But, since the first pages I was happy to have started it!Many object to Garrett’s being to forceful with her “tough” and “I’m able to do everything” attitude. I don’t. I liked it!I liked that she’s a very capable both in her medical profession and her private life. I would have ...

    How do you know when a book (or in this case, a series) is a keeper?*When you've finished the book and you have no desire to read anything else.* When you find yourself thinking about it and reliving all the best parts.*When you're dying to start reading the series all over again but then your brain tells you 'No, you have plenty of books to read on the TBR pile--just leave it be.'*When you realize that you havent't read any historicals in the pa...

    4,5Maravilloso. Creo que la Kleypas se ha lucido con los dos protagonistas y su historia de amor. Me ha faltado un poco más de desarrollo en la trama de intriga, pero la historia de Garret y Ethan me ha parecido absolutamente deliciosa. Dos personajes creados con absoluta maestría. Garret una mujer fuerte, inteligente, la primera mujer médico de Inglaterra. Ethan un personaje oscuro, fue detective y ahora anda metido en historias mayores. A lo...
  • Viri
    ***3 if you want to hear an Irish brogue STARS*** La reseña ya en el blog...https://www.virivillarreal.com/2018/0...Para mí el punto flojo de este libro fue la trama, no hablo de la parte del romance entre los protagonistas, eso me gustó mucho. Hablo del fondo de la historia, la intriga que se termina desinflando y los momentos en los cuales no pasa absolutamente nada. A pesar de que Lisa trata de imprimir ese halo de feminismo en la doctora n...
  • Ms. Smartarse
    Garret Gibson is a strong independent woman who can stand her ground. As the only female doctor in 1870s England, she's seen her fair share of blood and gore. Aaaand... she has studied self defense with the best fencing master London has to offer.So really, she'd thank Ethan Ransom to not stick his handsome nose in her business. Granted, his remark about her "civilized" fighting style not being adequate to fend off drunken lechers does have some ...

    3.5-4Reseña completa: http://masromance.blogspot.com/2018/0...Me han gustado mucho los dos y la historia en general también. el tema del final no lo termino de encajar, no era necesario pero es como si a la autora se le haya resistido (mucho) explicarnos cómo se han enamorado estos dos. Porque a mí es algo que no me ha quedado claro y ese ha sido mi gran problema. Ella, fuerte, decidida independiente es como las protagonistas de Kleypas que m...
  • Carole (Carole's Random Life in Books)
    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.I loved this book! I have been a huge fan of Lisa Kleypas for a long time but for some reason I haven't read a lot of her work during the past few years. I can see now that this has been a big mistake on my part and that I should have made time for the Ravenels series because this was oh so good. I loved it on the first page, the last page, and all the pages in between.The characters ...

    “I’ve always loved you. If I could choose my fate, I’d never be parted from you. Acushla… pulse of my heart, breath of my soul… there’s nothing on this earth more fair and fine than you. Your shadow on the ground is sunlight to me.” Hello Stranger reminds me of all the reasons why I love and read romance. I FINALLY have a winner from the Ravenels series. Ethan was literally fighting Cam for the #1 spot in my heart. This book was not...

    Nuestra reseña en A la cama con... un libro De momento, el mejor de la serie (aunque nadie superará mi amor por ti, Rhys Winterbone... hasta que llegue a West *.*)
  • Alba Turunen
    4’5 Estrellas. Éste sí que sí, por fin un libro de los Ravenel que merece la pena, y que está a la altura de lo que Kleypas publicaba en histórica hace muchos años.Antes de nada me gustaría decir que no iba muy convencida cuando lo empecé, porque el personaje de Garrett me parecía muy irreal. Cierto que Lisa se basó en la figura de la primera mujer en tener licencia para ejercer la medicina en Inglaterra, pero ello no hace que me choq...
  • Yolanda
    4,5es que adoro a Garret y a Ethan, la historia de amor que ha creado la Kleypas para ellos, me parece una delicia. Me ha dado unos momentos preciosos y emotivos. Ese West, qué divino.ainssss, con este tipo de protagonistas termino los libros con una satisfacción.Rhys, te adoro querido.
  • Mandi Schreiner
    “I was taught that satisfying a woman propery should take at least as long as making dough for bread.”Garrett writhed helplessly. “How long is that?”“You don’t know?” he asked, amused.“No, I can’t cook.”I read the Publishers Weekly’s review of this book a few weeks ago, which pretty much slams it as a silly, non-plausible book and laughs it off. It made me have a scrunchy face and then I entered this book with trepidation. B...

    *** 3.5 Hellooo, Sexy Irish STARS *** —Desde que te vi, supe que serías mi porción del mundo. Siempre te he querido. Si pudiera elegir mi destino, nunca me separaría de ti. Acushla... latido de mi corazón, aliento de mi alma... no hay nada sobre la faz de la Tierra más hermoso y dulce que tú. Tu sombra en el suelo es el sol para mí. Sinceramente no esperaba nada de esta historia, me sorprendió muchísimo y lo disfruté que fue lo mej...

    Awesome romance!!! Hello Stranger is the 4th book in the ravenel series and it's Garrett and Ethan's book.

Between the passion,suspense and intrigue in back streets and alleys these two such different people will find a passion and love that can last a lifetime! Lisa Kleypas is a awesome storyteller and one of the best romance writers,I love her ch...
  • Esther
    This was a disappointment. Maybe my expectations were to high??I needed more of a romantic/emotional connection between Ethan and Garrett, not just the sexual pull/attractions.Way too much medical details.Something was missing and not sure what. Slow start.Needed a little more for the ending.
  • Wendy'sThoughts
    4.5 Upheaval and Follow Through Stars* * * * 1/2 Spoiler Free I have been a fortunate reader. When I started my reading of this series almost all of the books were published. I was able to know for sure I would have the next entry sitting there waiting for me....At least until now...I was taken by the hand and introduced to the Ravenels, the only brothers left of this long lineage family. Devon and West were a part of the family but not very acti...

    Book world confession time…again.I hope hubby doesn’t see this review. I’ve been blaming…using him as a scapegoat…taking advantage of his guilt for too long now. It’s time I owned up to my deceit.I use my hubby’s snoring as an excuse to read more…Well, there you have it. Now that the burden has been removed I can go on with my life.You may laugh, but that burden has been weighing on me for quite a while now. See, hubby snores some...
  • Holly
    2.5 starsThe only thing keeping me from rating it lower is the appearance of West Ravenel towards the end. I'm very happy to see he gets his own book next! But this book was disappointing otherwise - the characters/romance/plot are all a bit bland. Sad coming from an author who has written my favorite historical romance series (The Hatthaways).
  • Pj Ausdenmore
    This is the deeply romantic Lisa Kleypas storytelling that I fell in love with years ago. From beginning to end, it's my favorite book so far in The Ravenels series.I wasn't sure what to expect of Garrett. In previous books we're shown a no-nonsense doctor who hasn't much of a life outside of her career but she really evolves in this book. I enjoyed watching her transition as she begins to embrace her emotional side without sacrificing any of the...
