In Wife By Wednesday, Catherine Bybee grabs the regency genre and effectively relocates it into present-day culture. Her style is down-to-earth, and readable, her dialogue accurate.
There is sufficient tension in Wife By Wednesday to make it snap, while the romance brings a slightly steamy indulgence. Catherine Bybee provides entertainment with a feel good factor that makes reading a pleasure.
