Publisher's Summary

When Phoebe starts receiving anonymous letters, she never once thinks the most irresponsible man in London is her correspondent. Or that she will fall in love with him.

Phoebe Kimball grew up believing in love, but after failing to find a gentleman capable of capturing her heart, she has turned more practical than romantic. She is determined to find a husband in London this season. If only the annoying Mr. Fenwick would stop appearing every time she sets her cap at someone! When an anonymous letter arrives warning her that her current target is unsuitable marital material, Phoebe begins a relationship with the letter writer that promises something more than a practical alliance. 

Griffin Fenwick does not usually care for women on the hunt for a husband, but Miss Kimball's quick wit and refusal to admit she enjoys his company intrigues him. When he realizes the gentlemen on her list of eligible bachelors is full with scoundrels, he warns her the only way he can - through a letter. As he comes to know Phoebe better, he soon realizes he wishes to put his own name on her list. If only she liked Griffin as much as she liked her anonymous correspondent.

When Phoebe realizes its been Griffin writing her all along, will she put aside practicality for love, or spurn Griffin for even trying to woo her?

Letters for Phoebe is the first in a series of books about five friends. The next four novellas will be written by authors Joanna Barker, Megan Walker, Heidi Kimball, and Arlem Hawks.

Sweet story

Clever storyline without all the angst and misunderstandings of other books that I get so tired of. This one had two likable main characters, and I’m glad I didn’t turn it off during the uninteresting prequel about the school girls. That ends quickly, and then the real story begins.

Fun series

I read this book when it was first being released and then I read another one in the series by another author. And now I have listened to this one again. I think I nearly enjoyed it more the second go around now that I know the ending of one of the other girls’ story. But then I haven’t read a single book by Sally Britton that I haven’t liked. This is a sweet love story between Griffin and Phoebe. They are both fun characters but I especially like Griffin for his lightness and wit.

A DIFFERENT PLOT TWIST!

I liked this book as it was different from most historical romances. Both main characters were intelligent and thoughtful. As the book summary states, Phoebe begins receiving letters warning her off of men on her "list" of potential suitors. The letters are from a male friend that is very annoying to her! But she mostly does heed his letters, and finds out that what she is told is true. These letters come to her over and over again as she is going methodically down her list of potential suitors, and she begins to wonder just who is writing to her, and how he knows these tidbits about her list of men? Of course, as the book goes along, and her list of men dwindle, she does figure out who is the author of the letters, and at first is miffed (without revealing to him yet that she knows it is him ) But, even as he has already done, she finally realizes that he IS a good, kind, intelligent and thoughtful man. I like this book because it had a bit if mystery to it, even as it was an historical romance novel. The main characters were fun, and they enjoyed each other's abilities and intelligence.

Enchanting! A story with a hint of 'You Got Mail

A sweet, romantic, and heartwarming epistolary historical romance.

I have to say I loved everything about this book.

Phoebe was a practical girl whose hopes for a love match were dashed by an unscrupulous fortune hunter.

In her third London season, she decided to be sensible and choose a husband with her head rather than her heart.

She did not have any unreasonable requirements. She just wanted a man who could treat her as a partner and who would love her for who she was.

Griffin was one of the loveliest heroes I came along in quite some time. He was funny, loving, and so adorable.

He inadvertently introduces Phoebe to a gambler and feels responsible when he finds out she is romantically interested in said gentleman. He then tries to warn her by writing an anonymous note.

The story is everything I expect in a romance: the slow-burn connection, the witty dialogues, the butterflies in the stomach, and the added treat of a lovely note exchange.

I love the duality of practical and sensible Phoebe and spontaneous and adventurous Griffin. They are clearly a match made in heaven.

The side characters were also lovely. I enjoyed learning about Phoebe's school friends and their 'luck bracelet'. I'm looking forward to reading the other books in the series, especially Marah and Lavinia's stories.

I already owned the e-book, so I read and listened to the audiobook at the same time.

I'm a fan of Jessica Elisa Boyt's work, and she did a great job once again. I love how clear her pronunciation is. Her tone is very calm and lovely, and there is a clear differentiation between the characters.

It is a relatively short audio (3 hours), which I find very convenient. Despite not being long, the story is very well developed.

Letters for Phoebe is enchanting! One of my favorite reads of the year.

Highly recommended for everyone who loves sweet romances and epistolary stories.

I received a code for this book from the author for an honest review.

Utterly delightful, charming and captivating!

Oh how I adored Phoebe and Griffin! I loved discovering more about each of their characters while I listened to this book. I had my opinions and thoughts of who I thought each character was and how they were going to turn out. But the journey of both of them was just delightful!

Phoebe and her friends make a promise to marry for love. It was interesting to watch Phoebe remembering her time in boarding school with her friends and their promise, then watching her trying to search for suitable marriage material.

Griffin's antics had me laughing at him. And Phoebe's disdainful attitude and frustration with him at their initial meeting. Especially when he continued to stay close by while she was trying to garner an introduction and catch the eye of another gentleman. Phoebe, he's caught onto you and is not going to let you be caught unawares with any gentleman who isn't worthy of you. Although, you have no clue!

Ha! It's great! If you're familiar with The Shop Around the Corner (or You've Got Mail), you'll see the little similarities. Phoebe and Griffin keep getting thrown together in different social situations and Phoebe has to decide if she's going to open her heart to him or not. Especially when this mysterious letter writer is starting to gain more and more of her attention and heart.

There is plenty of humor throughout the book that will keep you smiling, chuckling, laughing out loud while you read or listen. And the sweet romance was charming. I loved the night at the theater. *happy sigh* I promise, you're gonna enjoy your time while reading this book!!! I highly recommend it. Now I need to go figure out the books for Phoebe's friends and read those books.

Content: Clean

Happy Reading!!!

Another great book brought to life in audio form

I enjoyed this book when I read it, but I loved listening to it. Sally Britton writes with so much heart that I am drawn into the book immediately. I really like how Jessica Elisa Boyd narrates. She doesn't compete with the story, just enhances it. I will listen again and again.

A fun Regency Read

My thoughts on this book:

• I liked that Griffin had honor, kindness, and commitment. He was on a quest to save Phoebe from choosing a bad suitor.

• Phoebe and Griffin were very likeable characters that were thoroughly developed and fleshed out. The witty banter between these characters and the situations they found themselves in, made for an interesting plot.

• The writer's words painted clear pictures that helped me to visualize the scenes and the emotions of the characters. I felt like I was a part of those scenes.

• The author's writing style was concise vivid, and clear.

• The narrator did an amazing job of bringing this story to life.

• I really enjoyed this short novella. It was such a warm, sweet romance.

At my request, I was given a complimentary copy of this audiobook from the author. I have voluntarily left my review and my opinions were my own. I will be looking forward to reading/listening to more books by this author and narrator.

Letters for Phoebe is such a beautiful story!!

Letters for Phoebe by Sally Britton is such a beautiful story!! I loved how Miss Phoebe Kimball and Mr. Griffin Fenwick got to know each other better through their correspondence with each other, albeit one knew the other (better) in real life. Griffin was such a great, good-humored character that felt so refreshing, while at the same time it was so sweet getting to glimpse his more serious, caring side. And Miss Phoebe, she was so lucky to have a friend in him, to look out for her and advise her on her next decisions. I eagerly anticipated every interaction between these two, and definitely enjoyed reading how they slowly started to develop feelings for each other *le happy sigh*.

As for the narrator, I think she did an incredible work bringing to life all the characters and all their emotions. Personally, though, there was a moment in the story when it felt like Griffin's mother's voice changed too much for it to be believable that it was still the same person speaking. But notwithstanding that minor fact, I truly enjoyed listening to this book, since it fairly transported me to the setting right beside the characters :)

Overall, a great introduction to this new, multi-author series, perfect for fans of the authors as well as the Sweet Historical Romance genre. Can't wait to follow the stories of the rest of the friends! ~ 5 stars

I absolutely loved this story!

I love this story. What a great start to the series. When I first started reading it, I couldn’t help but think of it as a Regency adaptation of “You’ve Got Mail” (a movie I also happen to love) but even though there are some similarities, the story shines on its own. I loved Griffins outgoing and witty personality. He is full of life and is always doing something to make others laugh. It’s not even so much the actions that I found loveable so much as the intent behind them. He is always caring and kind. Wanting to do whatever is in his capability to help another. Phoebe’s personality also intrigued me for it’s complexities. A practical and reserved character she initially comes across as sever but as we continue along we see her open up and realise that she really just wants to be loved and cared for and have someone to show that same care and love for.
Wonderfully narrated by the lovely Jessica Elisa Boyd (who is always a pleasure to listen to in my opinion), this clean and wholesome book left this reader smiling and content, yet eager for more.
I received a copy of this book with no obligation to leave a review. All thoughts expressed are my own.
