“Charming, beautifully written, and hopelessly romantic. Sure to be a new favorite!” -JULIANNE DONALDSON, best-selling author of Edenbrooke
Brighton, England 1820
Amelia Moore wants only one thing—to secure the future happiness of her younger sister, Clara. With their stepfather’s looming death, the two sisters will soon be on their own—without family, a home, or a penny to their names. When an invitation arrives to join a house party at Lakeshire Park, Amelia grasps at the chance. If she can encourage a match between Clara and their host, Sir Ronald, then at least her sister will be taken care of.
Little does she know that another guest, the arrogant and overconfident Mr. Peter Wood, is after the same goal for his own sister. Amelia and Peter begin a rivalry that Amelia has no choice but to win. But competing against Peter—and eventually playing by his rules—makes Amelia vulnerable to losing the only thing she has left to claim: her heart.
The book in my words
Amelia and Clara have had a bit of a rough life. After their mother dies they are stuck with a stepfather that wishes they never plagues his doors. Now that he is on his death bed, Amelia needs to find a safe place for Clara or find her a match. Clara already has her sites on the handsome Sir Ronald now all Amelia needs to do is get them together and secure Clara a better life than what she had, however, Amelia didn’t plan for Peter Wood.
The Good and The Ok
I am SO in love with this book, from the first word to the last, I was cheering for Amelia and Clara. Hoping that all would work out for them. I was so invested in these two girls that if it didn’t work out I would be happy to let them live with me. 🙂
Peter Wood is great guy who has a few flaws but overall, I couldn’t wait for him and Amelia to finally realized the connection they had. The chemistry between the two had me smiling throughout this book. I just loved the banter and how annoyed Amelia got with him. I loved when she put her guard down how playful they were together. I just loved the story, at one point it was so shocked by what happened I couldn’t even figure how it would be fixed. I just loved how this book played out. I just can’t express enough how much I loved this book…Can you tell?
I love proper romance and this story has become one of my favorites. I love the characters, the story and the romance of it all. I thought about this story long after it was over. I highly recommend and can’t wait to read mover from Megan Walker. I just love how she tells a story!
Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
