Format:Mass Market Paperback
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

5.0 out of 5 stars you'll read it again and again Jan. 27 2003

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.
3.0 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.

I own all of Kathleen GIlles Seidel's books. I bought this for a friend who really liked Downton Abbey. I thought that she would enjoy the regency theme (and modern soap opera) theme. I certainly did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Play It Again, Seidel Oct. 17 2009
By Moth Ella - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is one of the best I've read all year. The characters are realistic and sympathetic without being paragons. The Regency soap opera is a great plot device that is so much more than mere device. Seidel uses the language beautifully and it seems downright tragic she is not better known AND that she's not really writin romances anymore. Her characters are engaging, her plots are tight and well-paced and her writing is incredible. I can't gush enough about this book enough. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
