Book Thoughts by Rachelle
I absolutely loved this book. Julianne Donaldson incorporated the perfect mix of humor, intrigue, and romance to weave this tale set in the regency era (think Jane Austen). The story is fresh, the characters are beautifully written and I love Marianne Daventry’s personality. The hero has great depth and is so much more than a handsome face. I don’t usually read a book more than once because there are just too many books! But this one has earned that right and I look forward to reading it again, just as soon as I can get it back–everyone in my family is reading it!
Here’s more about the book:
Marianne Daventry will do anything to escape the boredom of Bath and the amorous attentions of an unwanted suitor. So when an invitation arrives from her twin sister, Cecily, to join her at a sprawling country estate, she jumps at the chance. Thinking she’ll be able to relax and enjoy her beloved English countryside while her sister snags the handsome heir of Edenbrooke, Marianne finds that even the best laid plans can go awry.
From a terrifying run-in with a highwayman to a seemingly harmless flirtation, Marianne finds herself embroiled in an unexpected adventure filled with enough romance and intrigue to keep her mind racing. Will Marianne be able to rein in her traitorous heart, or will a mysterious stranger sweep her off her feet? Fate had something other than a relaxing summer in mind when it sent Marianne to Edenbrooke.
