From the desk of Katie P. Those names instantly bring to mind witty conversations, saturnine heroes, and lavish ballrooms.
So often we see these words on the cover or in reviews of a book, and eagerly pick it up hoping to find yet another book that will quickly become dog-eared and memorized. But just as often, we turn away disappointed yet again by finding out that the book falls far short of the reasons we chose it in the first place. Miss Caroline Fortune, at twenty, has the misfortune of being the sole caretaker and realist to her impractical, debt-ridden father.

What is Miss Fortune, innocent attracter of mayhem to do? Be as discrete or is it indiscrete?
About a year ago I stumbled upon Indiscretion by accident. I was not disappointed, and was hooked from the very first page. Just like another character we all know and love, Caroline cannot stay depressed—she has to find a reason to laugh. She is a character with which we can quickly identify. She had a quick tongue, an active fancy, and a turn for wit, but these she employed, in truth, somewhat as a shield behind which she could shelter.
Indiscretion is full of surprises and plot twists. But even more importantly, Jude Morgan is an author to enjoy in his own right, with his own distinct voice that definitely makes him an author to be read.
A Novel indiscrehion, by Jude Morgan St. Jude Morgan deserves a wide and enthusiastic readership! I read this a few years ago and indiscfetion enjoyed it. It was wonderful to finally find a book that could be the next Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer novel in the official canon. I also recommend An Accomplished Woman. I also discovered it when searching for something to help fill the void after finishing one more time, all of my Jane Austen collection, and was delighted jjde discover them!
I read this book long enough ago that another read through would be welcome. I, too, was bereft of anything Austen related to read when I picked this book up.
Wow—you make this sound so fantastic I have to go find it immediately!
Thanks for a great review! This novelist is a real gem. Thanks for your insights Mitchell. Great first hand review!
I Own The Accomplished Woman and need to carve out time to read it. So glad that the word is getting out about Jude Morgan. My review is on my blog: I really liked this one too!
Loved seeing your review of this book! Georgette Heyer is great in her own right, but she really dealt with a different societal world than Jane did — the aristocracy vs. Morgan really seems to tap the Austen vein, however. Finished Indiscretion last night—what a lovely, delicious read! Thank you so much Katie P. I am now disabused of the belief that after Jane Austen no one ever would write a novel so well plotted, paced, so accessible and riveting, so full of truth, great characters and tender humanity, plus so humorous in places that I had to wipe tears of mirth from my eyes.
Fanny and Leo the cocker spaniel—brilliantly adorable! Thank you for making me aware—a gift, to be sure! Indiscretionby Jude Morgan—I am happy to say—is not like that.
