      You know the Pringles add that says "Once You Pop, You can't STOP" ? Ummmm, well yeah, that's me with Jennifer Moore novels. Seriously! Once I pop open the cover of one I have no desire to do anything else but read from cover to cover as fast as humanly possible to devour EVERYTHING within about the book and characters. So not healthy for me(probably healthier than popping open a can(s) of Pringles though and in my opinion probably a whole lot tastier-I do love Pringles though)!!!! But it doesn' [...]

      Jennifer Moore's very descriptive so it's easy to picture the story as you read. Lady Helen is a young woman (she's only 20) goes with her mother and step-father, who is a General, to his new station in Calcutta, India in 1813. She learns about the customs and the people from Captain Rhodes, the General's right hand man. Lady Helen is different from some other young women her age, she's more serious, kind, and cares about people and their feelings. She plays the piano and her step-father has one [...]

I liked that her feelings for Michael grew [...]

      Once again, Jennifer Moore demonstrates her versatility as a regency romance author. This time, Moore takes us to the heart of colonial India, where the young Lady Helen finds herself immersed in the wonder and awe of this strange new land. Along the way, she meets a dashing lieutenant and a sensitive Captain, each eager to catch her eye. Though I was hoping this book would delve more into the inherent issues of colonialism and imperialism, we see India exclusively through Western eyes, and ther [...]

      4.5 starsThis is a sweet, clean Regency romance that I loved reading! It's 1813, and Lady Helen has just moved to India with her Mama and stepfather, Jim. She loves the beauty of the land and all the curiosities. A couple of soldiers in Jim's regiment catch her eye, and maybe even her heart. Join Lady Helen as she experiences the good and bad of India and discovers what music makes her heart sing!**Many thanks to NetGalley and Covenant Communications for a copy to review**

      Growing up in England, during school I learned a fair amount regarding British rule in India, during the days of the Empire. It wasn't something I particularly enjoyed, nor was India a place I could imagine I'd want to visit. Along with that I tend to also avoid stories set in this location & era. However, Jennifer Moore writes consistently well, and it was enough to persuade me to give 'Lady Helen Finds Her Song' a try. I actually found the parallels between my own feelings about India, and [...]

      I loved this unique Regency reading experience! The setting of India was a character in itself, and the authors descriptions were vibrant and blended in to the narrative without becoming overlong. Seeing the country and culture through Helen's experiences added a feeling of wonder and appreciation since she savors the new and interesting aspects of her journey. She begins somewhat naive, but because of her observant and open nature she embraces the differences. Her friendship with Captain Rhodes [...]

      I know not everyone has the experience of growing up sheltered from the darker things in life, not that everything is perfect, but that things are good and everything looks beautiful. And then you grow up and learn about those darker things. This book really touched me in a very personal way. It felt like such a metaphor for life, not letting the dark side overwhelm you and finding that your song will have some sad mixed in with the happy.I pretty much loved everything about this book. The setti [...]

      "Lady Helen Finds Her Song" is a fantastic Regency romance taking place in early 19th century India. The writing was quite descriptive and immersed me in the sights,sounds,and smells of the India that Lady Helen slowly discovers. I also enjoyed the exploration and examples of the clash of cultures that are woven throughout the novel. However,I must confess that it was Lady Helen and her Captain Rhodes that kept me totally enraptured. I was actually reminded of how much they made me feel exactly [...]

      It was a cute story and I really loved the setting of India under the British rule. Not your average Regency story but it didn't thrill me either. Its tone was a bit naïve, which I'm still trying to decide whether it was a good thing or not.

      I swear to you when I finished reading this book, I caught myself in a big sigh! It was wonderful! It was also an amazing adventure in India. And watching Lady Helen fall in love was priceless. Okay maybe I have been watching one too many commercials but it was wonderful and I did catch myself in a sigh! And if I didn’t have a huge pile of tbr books, I would reread it right now!!Lady Helen is the daughter of Lady Patricia. When her father died Lady Patricia married General Stackhouse. He was m [...]

      Good story and well developed characters. Though it wasn't in-depth, I thought the author did a very nice job of giving a feel for life in India through the eyes of a young British girl.

    14. Melanie on said:

      This Regency romance is uniquely set in India. Helen has moved there with her mother and stepfather, Brigadier-General Jim Stackhouse, who has a military assignment there. She immediately meets two men--Captain Michael Rhodes, who has lived in India for a while and knows the people and customs very well and Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft, a handsome man who makes her swoon.We get to see India through Helen's eyes and she's eager to take in the culture. I loved the descriptions and felt like I was ex [...]

      India has always sounded so exotic, especially from the perspective of an English lady during the 1800s. The beautiful, and sometimes horrifying, imagery that is described in this book is very vivid and caused me to picture it all so clearly. Add to that some great, yet flawed, characters, and a charming story is born! Lady Helen is accompanying her mother and step-father to India and has a great attitude to change. She is willing to learn, adapt, and accept the customs and people around her. I [...]

      I just love bestselling author Jennifer Moore’s novels and I was thrilled for another regency. Lady Helen Finds Her Song takes place in the mystical and beautiful world of India, with British influences. Lady Helen has gone on a voyage with her mother and step-father to his new station in India with the army. Here Helen experiences the drastic culture differences and what many would see as barbaric, Lady Helen sees as an exciting new adventure. Lady Helen makes the acquaintance of a Captain an [...]

      Jennifer Moore has done it again, creating characters that I fell in love with immediately. I also thoroughly enjoy the fact that this book connects to several of her others. It's fun to run into familiar characters again. I found Helen to be a delightful character with her sweetness of spirit but low self esteem. I loved the way Captain Rhodes treats her and the way their friendship forms. The details about India and life there during this period of time were enjoyable as well. Certainly very d [...]

      I'm so happy to be a part of this tour. Jennifer Moore is a favorite of mine and I just gobble her books right up.This book is a regency, but set in India so you get a completely different feel than most typical regency novels. I loved seeing India through Helen's eyes. She was so excited for a new adventure and took in every sound, smell and sight with new eyes willing to know and understand this rich new culture. It was not the typical English response which put Lady Helen a bit on the outs of [...]

      So now I want to go to India and eat exotic food and have a pet monkey. Thanks a lot Ms. Moore! This story is about Lady Helen finding herself or her "song" and finding romance in India. She is kind and smart and funny and I immediately started rooting for her to find her way. She is traveling there with her mother and stepfather and finds everything in her travels wonderful and adventurous, unlike many of the British women who live in India. Every character has depth, including Badmash, the mon [...]

      I got lost in this book and loved it! Helen's widowed mother recently married General Stackhouse and Helen goes with them to his new assignment in India. I liked Helen right away. She's a little unsure of herself, excited to take in a completely new culture, and feels deeply. The write-up on the book makes it sound like a love triangle, but Helen doesn't string people along. I loved learning about India at this time period and seeing it through Helen's and Michael's viewpoints. I thought Helen's [...]

    21. Amy on said:

      Lady Helen Finds Her Song is a wonderful story. I have enjoyed every book written by Jennifer Moore and this one is no exception. I love Helen and found her story to be unique. And who would not love Captain Rhodes? Sigh.I thought this book to be written beautifully, taking a reader back to historical India.Highly recommended.5 stars.

      I’ve long been a fan of Ms. Moore. Her books are both swoon and sigh worthy while also being well researched and impeccably written. This time she weaves her descriptions of India so seamlessly that you’d almost believe you were there walking in Helen’s shoes or Michael’s boot. The development of the individual characters coupled with the growing romance makes you want to savor every word, every page, to make the tale last as long as possible. There is beauty and ugliness found in India, [...]

    25. Gerrie on said:

      Early in the book we learn that the hero attended Sandhurst. This book takes place in 1813, and Sandhurst was formed in 1947. Enough said.

      Somewhat cheesy but I like cheesy. Lots if grammatical mistakes which drive me crazy.

    27. Lisa(Bookworm Lisa) on said:

      ***4.5 stars***This is a beautifully written book. Lady Helen has just come to India with her mother and step-father. The year is 1813. She is full of enthusiasm and excitement. She loves to learn from the people, find out about their culture, and take in the exotic animals and sights. Her optimism is not typical of a British Lady. She quickly finds that others do not share her love of the culture.Jennifer Moore brought this story to life for me. I loved her descriptions of the country and the d [...]

      How can someone not love a book by Jennifer Moore?! She does such an incredible job with each of her books, and this one was no exception. She does her research so well that you are immediately immersed into the setting and feel as though you are there. In this story I felt as if I were in India, experiencing everything for the first time with Lady Helen. She is fascinated by all she sees. I loved her growth as a character throughout the story. She is timid but finds she has no problem talking w [...]

Helen is an absolute delight. She is kind and thoughtful and genuinely curious about her new surroundings. I loved the way the title works into the story and it fits Helen's character beautifully. I also loved Captain Rhodes (Michael). His love for India, from the people to the culture was endearing. Mich [...]
