    1. I won this book from First Reads. Genny Hayes had lived in a cabin in the middle of Yosemite with her father for years until her father was attacked by a bear and killed. She didn't know her way to the nearest town so when she spotted a photographer in the woods near her cabin she spied on him to see if he was a good man that might help her. Mitch Campbell had been working as a photographer for years to save enough to open his own studio in New York. When he finds Genny spying on him he startle [...]


    2. Crass language and explicit scenes make this book, and author, a no-go for me. I prefer the regency/western genres to be clean and perchance a bit more romanticized. Gentlemen should be just that, gentlemen. And the women should be ladies worth waiting for. Nothing wrong with embracing chivalry and good old fashioned morals.


    3. 10/06/15.I LOVED IT!!!!!Review to be posted soon._________________3/07/15Finally. It's been a month since I read this book. And my review is finally up!My God!I had been on a historical-romance marathon a month back. I devoured anything Judith McNaught and Julia Quinn. I wasn't very happy with most of the books - In fact, McNaught's works and protagonists were so repetitive and I could almost predict what was going to happen next.And that's when I got this one. It was a good change and genuinely [...]


    4. This review is about the author's writing style. I truly enjoy Jane Goodger's books and this one is no different. The innocent, yet charming Genny Hayes and the protector, Mitch Campbell is a good match. I enjoy how Ms. Goodger builds up the characters' relationship, not just have them bed hopping. I also like, before the ending, her couples usually marry which we get to experience their newlywedded life. Her characters feel like real people not just the romance of the Tons' elite. Although, I d [...]


    5. This is a historical romance but the language and happenings that made up the story felt decidedly not historical. Also, for anyone interested this book is R rated, which I was not expecting. I skipped over a few scenes that were unnecessarily detailed. Lastly, I did not really like the hero in the book. The only reason I finished it was out of curiosity as to how the author would wrap up the story. It is due to that curiosity that I gave it 2 stars.



    6. If you like historical romance, then you MUST read this book. It's absolutely awesome. I loved it! Great characters, all of them. Great storyline, which was awesome from start to finish. This book is an example of great romance novel writing. It's got all the bells and whistles that you want in a book of this type. A great love story, that has an AWESOME ending!


    7. Not BadNot sure how the title relates, but this was a good story. There were a couple of proofreading errors. (page 64 of 243) If there were more, then the story was so interesting they went unnoticed. I found the infrequent course language detracted from the story and possibly thrown in for effect. Without it I would have rated higher.


    8. I chose this title because of its beautiful cover. A sweet innocent young gal living in the wilderness meets a rugged mountain man type to help her trek across land and ocean to get to England


    9. A nice sexy fairy tale. After writing this review, I may probably forget I have ever read it. It is one of those things that fit into the cliche "it was good while it lasted" and leave it at that.


    10. Great readWonderful book.is lady can write. I couldn't put it down, but it's late so I'll go to bed now. Goodnight


    11. Kinda boringSorry I read the beginning and the end that's all I could stand , there wasn't enough in the middle to keep me interested. I only read the ending because I was curious




    12. 3.5 stars(Under Construction)Generally this historical romance wasn't bad but I had different expectations and was a little disappointed because my expectations weren't fulfilled. Before purchasing (or in this case pre-ordering) this novel I haven't read the description and therefore didn't knew anything about the story. So I cannot recommend this novel nor can I do the opposite it definitely depends on what the reader likes or dislikes.So what did I expect and what did I get.I didn't knew this [...]


    13. Aw, yes. I finished reading this book today and let me tell you, as soon as I read that last page, I heaved a long sigh. Of sadness that the story was over, at how happy the ending made me feel, how each romance novel I read typically end with a happy-ever-after, yet it doesn't stop me from being happy about how they got to that certain ending. Either way, I immensely enjoyed reading this book. After catching Genevieve Hayes spying on him as he trudges through the woods, Mitch Campbell turns the [...]


    14. I received a complimentary book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.Jane Goodger is a wonderful author who writes historical books that take place in the West. I read very few historical fiction boks but I always enjoy a good romantic Western. This genre appeals to me because the women are very independent and often act like women do in modern times. This book, in particular, takes place in the West during Victorian times.In this story, Genevieve Hayes is all alone in her cabin in Y [...]


    15. The gorgeous cover for BEHIND A LADY’S SMILE grabbed my attention right away, and the content is just as wonderful! I had read and loved Ms. Goodger’s previous book, and BEHIND A LADY’S SMILE strengthens my opinion of the author. Since her father’s death 8 months ago, Genevieve "Genny" Hayes has lived all alone in a cabin in the woods near Yosemite. She has seen a man about, and now she is watching him: he’s Mitch Campbell, who is with a team for the United States Geological Survey. Mi [...]


    16. I’ve read one of this author’s earlier titles and was impressed: her heroines have edges that are just one emery board from cutting: and Genny is no different. A sweet and biddable girl, she’s got a touch of naïve pragmatism where others are concerned, and a wickedly devilish sense of humor in her pranks. The granddaughter of an English earl, she was with her father in Yosemite when he died, leaving her alone in the wilderness. When she spots a photographer, she is covertly watching him. [...]


    17. Let me start off by saying that I usually do not read Historical Romance that takes place in America because I prefer Regency Romance, but for Jane Goodger I always will make an exception because I love her writing. I have read all of her books and they are all keepers.This is the story of a young lady, Genevieve Hayes, who finds herself alone in a cabin in Yosemite where she grew up with her father and mother. Her father has died and his last request is that she go back to England to her grandp [...]


    18. This is book 1 in the Lost Heiresses series.Mitch Campbell is hiking through Yosemite taking photographs when he feels as if someone is following him. Turns out he was right. Genevieve "Genny" Hayes is so startled when Mitch finds her, that she falls and breaks her leg. Mitch soon learns that Genny needs help making her way to England to meet her grandparents, the Duke and Duchess of Glastonbury. Seeing a way to finally open his photography studio, Mitch agrees to get her to her grandparents as [...]


    19. I’ve read every book this author had written and she never fails to deliver on story, characterization and on the “feels”. And let me tell you something. The “feels” is where it’s at when I read romance, and especially this author. I’m frankly astonished that there’s very little buzz about her and her books. Seriously folks, if you’re a fan of Mary Balogh, Liz Carlyle or Grace Burrowes, then you just have to read Jane Goodger! She is that good!In this story, the characterizatio [...]


    20. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a story of adventure and getting exactly what you asked for. Genevieve has spent most of her life very isolated in wild west California. She does not really remember her mother and her father's death leaves her utterly alone to take care of herself. To keep a promise, she needs to find her way back to England. It was a delight to watch Genevieve move through society with her pure innocence in how people are with others. Mitch is a r [...]


    21. Genny needs to find her way to her grandparents that live in England but she needs help getting there. She is all alone now that her father is dead and she has just found the man for the job.Mitch is minding his own business taking pictures when he comes across Genny, he gives her such a fright that she falls and breaks her leg. She guilts him into taking her to her grandparents as he did cause her mishap but Mitch isn't going to go easily. But once she tells him about her family, he knows that [...]


    22. This is the first book in the "The Lost Heiresses" series. Jane Goodger is a sold writer and her books are very enjoyable! I really liked having this book. Our heroine is Genny Hayes who has been living in the wilderness and wasn't really trained in the gentlewomen ways. But she does have the skill as a people person and most fall in love with her. Our hero, Mitch Campbell is a photographer and happened to be hiking in the woods were Genny was. They meet there and this sets them on a path of bri [...]


    23. This was a cute novel about a young woman who breaks her leg when meeting a man and he feels responsible so he'll escort her to England (all the way from Yosemite) to meet her grandparents - a duke and duchess. It's a bit of a road trip story involving trains and ships and all that takes place along the way. Will the young man collect a reward when he delivers the young woman to her grandparents? Or will he fall in love and not care about the money. It's a light, fast book that I read in a few h [...]


    24. Genny has been living alone in a cabin near Yosemite after her father died 8 months ago, knowing she won’t survive the winter she must do what her father told her find a way to her grandparents in England. She discovers some people nearby and begins to follow them when she is injured. Feeling guilty for Genny’s injury Mike stays to care for her and when he learns her grandparents are titled, decides to take her to England in hopes of a reward. Sweet romance, a wonderful historical read!


    25. Rugged photographer rescues a girl who is alone in the wilderness, only to find that she is the love of his life. This star-crossed pair appears to be doomed by the circumstances of their births, and a rigid society conspires to keep them apart.Their journey from California wilderness to London society is a sweet adventure. Humorous and with likeable characters, it is a very entertaining read.


    26. Behind A Lady's Smile is a fun read. I loved Ginny and Mitch together. I found those two had great chemistry and were quite funny together. The romance was a little spicier than I normally read but I just skipped over those scenes and moved to the rest of the book. Other than that, I thought the book was great.4 stars.
