Guess how many times AAR has reviewed Mary Balogh? 20? 30? 50? 60?

Nope–we’ve written 69 reviews of Balogh’s works. She’s written 120. Our first review was in August of 1997, over 23 years ago, a DIK review of a lighthearted Regency romp called The Famous HeroineOur guest reviewer wrote: Best of all is the refreshing hilarity that practically jumps off of every page and makes The Famous Heroine my all-time favorite romance.

Our most recent, published in August of 2020, was a B+ review of  Someone to Romance. In between, we’ve given Balogh 29 DIKs, 28 Bs, 9 Cs, 2 Ds, and one N/A.  I personally have read 25 books by Balogh–according to Goodreads, I gave nine a full five stars. My favorite are the Huxtable books. although I too find the last book, A Secret Affair to be a trial.

How about you? Are you a Balogh fan? If so, which is your favorite and why? What do you love about her work?
