This is a wonderful story, with marvelous characters and a very unique "story within a story". "My Lady's Chamber", the Regency soap opera that is at the center of the story, would be a smash if it were real. As always, I fell completely in love with KGS's protagonists. Highly recommended

Kathleen Gilles Seidel has the ability to make her readers want to meet and be friends with her characters. Each time I finish one of her books I grieve and feel like I've left my family behind.

HASH(0xa9767b1c) out of 5 stars you'll read it again and again Jan. 27 2003
By amf0001 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Set in the interesting world of daytime soaps, this book feels real, the characters, the situations, the depth of feeling. Jenny Cotton is the author/producer of My Lady's Chamber who loves her job so much she can't bear to see it as 'work' and strives to recreate a family within her work environment (a common theme explored by KGS)
When a new actor arrives on set, the experienced but wary Alec Cameron, he challenges and changes the dynamics and things start to shift.
The clever weaving of a regency romance (the setting of the soap opera) and modern day television, the exotic world of TV and the reality of people's complex feelings, makes for a lovely novel. KGS writes beautifully as always, and I don't know why she is so underrated but if you can pick this book up, do, it is well worth it and a definite keeper.

HASH(0xa97675dc) out of 5 stars More Women's Fiction Than A Romance Jan. 5 2014
By L. B. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
AGAIN is an unusual piece of fiction in regards to the plot itself and the way it was told. It had both strengths and weaknesses. First, the storyline was unusual; two male actors are both interested in the same woman who is the lead writer for the show they work on. It is a soap opera that takes place during Regency times. Now, I have never watched a soap opera in my entire life, but if I did a soap of this kind would intrigue me.

The head writer, Jenny Cotton, had an unusual upbringing. Her mother died when she was very young and her father, just barely out of his teens, responsibly takes action and raised her up on his own. Though Jenny does not have the most ideal childhood, her dad tried his best. Unfortunately, she still fought against loneliness until she met Brian O'Neill. He also lived in a single parent household with his mother and fights some demons of his own. The two young people gravitate toward each other when Brian moves into the area and starts to attend the same high school as Jenny. Friends first, they eventually become lovers and decide to move to New York after they graduate.

The chapters in this mild romance move back and forth between Jenny's past and the present time. She is now 28 years old and her life with Brian is, for the most part, stagnant. He always seems to put himself first: nothing has changed in their personal life for a long time. Then Alec is hired to join the show and Jenny's life takes a turn. When he is 'talking' the story is told from his POV and that was very refreshing.

My problem was with Jenny because she comes across as weak. She knows her life is far from ideal but she still clings to Brian, who is a very shallow man. Alec helps her out on more than one occasion -when Brian should have been there- and they become attracted to each other. Things build very slowly between these two but Brian is still very much a part of Jenny's life. And everything is fairly innocent until....well, you just need to read the story.

I really, really wanted to give the story more stars but I had a hard time with the heroine. I wanted to tell Jenny to move on(!); she could do so much better. She had someone who truly appreciated and cared about her; Alec was a sweetheart who tried to let Jenny go at her own pace. If you have an opportunity to find this older contemporary romance and are a sucker for the underdog, give it a try.

HASH(0xa99c52dc) out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorite romances ever. July 28 2015
By THill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Kathy Seidel has such an original voice. Her characters are so finely crafted. Jenny Cotton is delightful, the creator and head writer of a regency soap opera. (Just go with it, okay? Trust me.) She's perfectly at home in her little kingdom, in her show, and a mess of insecurities outside of it. Alec Cameron is so nice at his core, you think, How interesting could he possibly be? He's perfect. And he is, but he's also so kind and protective of Jenny.

I have read this book over and over, have given it to so many friends. So happy to see it in e-book form.

This is one of my favorite books by this author! She takes you into the story, teaches you things about daytime soap opera that you never imagined. It is a little out of date now (everyone would have had a cell phone), but it is an excellent book. Love the way that Jenny (the head writer/creator of the show) uses the people in her life in the characters in her soap opera. A Must Read!

Good story with interesting nuts-and -bolts information about how soap operas are made, and an engaging format which consists of narrative and script segments. Very entertaining!
