S full of jokes and asy smilesThere were definitely times that Marguerite irritated me in particular when she kept taking certain characters at face value I wish she hadn t been so naive and sometimes some straight uestions and answers would have solved some problems and radicated some subplotsOverall I think when an author can create a fictional character and place them in moments of history and build them friendships with people of historical importance making them seem like they ve always belonged therethat s a real talent And Trent did it so so perfectly Setting It s 1803 and England is in the mitts of fending off a war with Napoleon Bonaparte and English citizens are beginning to get anxious therefore causing riots to break outSynopsis A Royal Likeness is the Bonaparte and English citizens are beginning to get anxious therefore causing riots to break outSynopsis A Royal Likeness is the to The ueen s Dollmaker Years have passed and Marguerite is now the sole heir of Claudette s Fashion Doll business She couldn t be happier living the life of a tradeswoman with her devoted husband Nicholas Ashby constantly at her side It would seem nothing could bring Marguerite s spirits down until a raging band of rioters nd bring Marguerite s spirits down until a raging band of rioters nd on her doorstep harassing and accusing her of conspiring with the nemy as a result of being a French migr Suddenly the riot breaks loose and descends upon her shop breaking verything in their path While defending his wife s work Nicholas is brutally murdered right before Marguerites yes and her life ceases to matter Marguerite decides to scape verything that reminds her of Nicholas and goes to stay with her Aunt Claudette and Uncle William in the country She soon finds herself immersed in the depths of depression until one day her aunt gets the idea to send Marguerite to work as an apprentice for Madame Marie Tussaud who has a wax Les Ténébreuses -

days but once I started reading I couldn t put it down and stayed up to the wee hours of the morning to finish itA Royal Likeness combines history of the Napoleonic Era including fascinating details about the Battle of Trafalgar an abundance of adventure and intrigue and a good dose of romantic interest The novel stands on own although I do recommend reading The ueen s Dollmaker to better understand the StoryBranding: Creating Stand-Out Brands Through The Power of Story enmity between Marguerite and her husband s mother and brother Maude and Nathaniel Ashby two charactersasy to dislike intensely I also recommend reading The ueen s Dollmaker so you can meet the hero and heroine of that novel Claudette and William who appear in A Royal LikenessMarguerite s naivety and preoccupation with overcoming the grief from the loss of her husband gets her into a bit of trouble ok than bit but she soon learns to become independent and face challenges with courage and determination I would like to mention the hijinks Maurguerite gets up to but I think this would spoil the story a bit so I will refrain The author gives this character adventure than she It's A Wonderfully Sexy Life everxpected when all she was trying to do was survive the death of her beloved husbandFor me Christine Trent s novels stand out from others through attention to the details Beyond the historical content I learned things about ships I never knew before and the process of wax modeling was fascinating I highly recommend this novel if you love uality historical fiction adventure and intrigue and original charactersMy Rating 45httpmyobsessionwithbooksblogspot She has written a delicious novel based on a fictional heroine whose life runs parallel to a real historical figure in a real historical timeframe while using real historical facts Not only that once again like in her first novel The ueen s Dollmaker I was highly Lignin Biodegradation entertained by this no nonsense heroine In A Royal Likeness Marguerite is a gutsy creative and talented lady with a thirst for adventure and curiosity to nond Just love reading about these kinds of womenMany of you will remember Marguerite as Claudette s niece in Trent s first novel The ueen s Dollmaker In this subseuent novel Marguerite has now taken over the doll making business After a horrible tragedy I won t spoil it for you Marguerite moves on to work for Madame Tussaud Yes The very own Madame Tussaud who also happened to be a French born English raised Marguerite is a married doll maker who is uite content with her life her husband and her little doll shop in London That is until some drunkards come to her shop shouting about the French and Pure Chance end up skewering her husband Afterwards marguerite finds it

France several yearsarlier with her waxwork figures and her young son With a grim sense of determination and a work The Lady and the Lionheart ethnic that would please any soldier Marie Tussaud is determined to make her waxwork show a success Under Tussaud s guidance Marguerite slowly begins to come out of her shell rediscover her creative flare and maybeven fall in love Marguerite also becomes ntangled with a famous man of history Lord NelsonOverall I found this a very njoyable book From the get go Marguerite was uite a likeable character and i actually found it remarkable how fond I became of Nicholas within the few mere pages he was actually alive Their relationship was so sweet and sincere I found myself hoping the blatant obvious wouldn t become trueI also liked the strong character of Marie Tussaud She faced very single situation the same showing off a very tough character only letting in a few cracks for softness now and again She was a constant source of strength and admiration And certainly sounded like someone who would become a very famous successI found the first half of the book a very slow read despite the timeline in it being uite fast paced The second half of the book went much uicker for me and I njoyed the bit of real action in it much Although Mr Philipstral was portrayed as the villain I wouldn t uite label him so Yes he was certainly a scoundrel and a trickster and you probably couldn t trust him as far as you could throw him but I believed that he would never really hurt Marguerite and truly did care for her In the Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church end the last time Marguerite talked to Philistral was actually uite a sweet one and showed that he thought of herven when his own life was at riskThe characters of Darden

Doll shop Claudette was the main character in the first book when tragedy when tragedy she leaves the shop and London through Claudette s connections she receives the opportunity to work as Madame Tussaud s apprentice She learns the trade of making life size wax models of famous people and helps Madame Tussaud with her xhibitions in London Edinburgh and Dublin Later because of her skill she gets involved with the British government and the Battle of TrafalgarMany real historical figures play characters in this fictitious tale and I really liked this aspect of the book Madame Tussaud and Captain Nelson were the most interesting The first half of the is concentrated on Marguerite s work with Mme Tussaud Although some readers find the details of waxwork a little tedious I njoyed it and thought it uite fascinatingMarguerite s character on the other hand took a while for me to like Let me xplain Right from the onset of the story I thought she could have better discerned the situation that led to tragedy After they break her shop window Marguerite flings open the door and brashly demands a group of about twenty men mostly drunk and on the brink of irrationality who are carrying clubs and pitchforks what they wanted with her and her shop Didn t she sense the danger She should have closed the door and gone to get her husbandSecondly she once again acted foolishly when it came to Mr Philipsthal Although he was connected to Mme Tussaud financially I did not think he needed to play such a big role in the first half of the book He was not needed to advance the plot and could asily have played a minor character or none at all As a matter of fact his role really slowed down the story and only served to show how addle brained I m using Maruerite s own words about herself she could beNow the second half of the book with the battle of Trafalgar the political intrigue and the romance was what really propelled the story forward and redeemed Marguerite in my yes I admired her courage and the way she looked past her dire situation and made herself useful by helping the doctor with the injured men during the war despite the horrors she witnessed Some readers may find some of these scenes gruesome but when it comes to medical situations it doesn t bother me The story moved uickly after this making me National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 eager to know how it would all come to anndIf you are a fan of historical fiction who particularly likes a heroine who is a spirited and independent tradeswoman rather than an aristocrat you will njoy this book The beginning may be slow but stick with it and you will not be disappointed Find this and other reviews at into this novel with an open mind Having any sort of preconceived xpectation of greatness will result in sound disappointment A Royal Likeness picks up where The ueen s Dollmaker left off makes a dramatic departure from its processor and never looks backTrent could not settle on a story line Marguerite starts as the aspiring Why Is It Always About You?: The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism entrepreneur we know from the previous novel but uickly becomes Tussaud s apprentice hero of the battle of Trafalgar and the central component in political dealings for the good of thempire Personally that never came together for me I felt like the author opened a history book and said hey this looks interesting where can I fit it in Trent has some talent as a writer but her inexperience is self Gods and fighting men: the story of the Tuatha de Danaan and of the Fianna of Ireland, arranged and put into English by Lady Gregory evident The constant changes in storyline and characterization arexhausting to read Her fictitious players have such dramatic changes in their basic makeup that they almost invalidate the original novel Claudette is content attending social outings and playing mother hen to her children This is a character who journeyed to France during the Revolution for a doll order I cannot believe she would settle down into a life of blissful domesticity Where is the fire and passion that drove her to become the best dollmaker in London Nathaniel and his mother were thrown in for comic relief but they play such an insignificant part that their presence comes off as a cheesy attempt to create continuity between the novels And since when is Nathaniel obsessed with his sister in law Marguerite was poised to follow in Claudette s footsteps but her determination and overall interest in her art is thwarted and never recovers Her character moves into wax modeling but the inuisitive little girl who peppered the doll shop staff with technical uestions never resurfaces Marguerite takes on the role of place holder The story revolves around her but she never comes through as particularly interested or devoted to her craftThe historic cast is also ill treated Madame Tussaud s broken English and overall characterization felt abrasive I cannot picture a woman with her talent and level of success being such a complete stick in the mud Why were Nelson Grey Pitt and Fox invited to the party Their part in the story could have been another book ntirely hopefully one with a completely separate cast since the idea itself wasn t a bad oneIn all honesty I wish I had skipped this one I would much rather see one well developed storyline than read a hodgepodge assortment of half baked ideas Read The ueen s Dollmaker and leave it at that. And as Britain battles to overthrow Napoleon Marguerite will find her loyalties under fire from all sides With a masterful ye for details Christine Trent brings one of history's most fascinating ras to life in of a story of desire ambition treachery and courag.
