A follow-up to Josi S. Kilpack's bestselling Proper Romance title The Vicar's Daughter.
Lenora Wilton has spent her life hiding behind the keys of her beloved pianoforte and the vibrancy of her younger sister, Cassie. But Lenora is ready for a change and travels to Bath to live with her Aunt Gwen and teach music at an all-girls’ boarding school. She is different in Bath—more comfortable with herself—and enjoys the freedom and independence of her new life there.
When Lenora meets Aiden Asher, she finds herself attracted to him, but her unexpected feelings become more complicated when she learns that Catherine—Lenora’s newest and most troublesome student in the school—is Mr. Asher’s niece. Catherine is a difficult student, and Lenora works hard to make progress with the girl.
When the chemistry between Lenora and Aiden increases, they share a passionate kiss by the River Avon, and Lenora feels it is the beginning of a new forever—until she learns that Aiden has withheld an important detail about his life that changes everything.
Lenora closes her heart to him, and Aiden, caught between his obligation and his heart, must do what he can to make amends. And Lenora, after years of hiding from everyone and everything, faces a decision only she can make.
I read The Vicar’s Daughter last year and always hoped that Lenora would get her happy ending. When I was offered this book to read I couldn’t pass up finding out what happens. This was such a sweet and romance book. I loved Aiden Asher he was so patient and determined. He was also such a gentlemen when it came to Lenora but he had secrets that almost ruined everything. I give an author a lot of credit when she can create a character that you hate, like want to shake them and then turn around and make a second characters that you could hate even more than the first. OMG! The niece was a MONSTER but eventually she wasn’t so bad but that other character (keeping it to myself to avoid spoilers) she was awful.
I have such a love for Clean Romance, I love the build of the characters and the focus on the story. The romance is such a slow climb that when they finally kiss you feel the butterflies in your stomach too. After the first book I was so sad for Lenora and as the book progressed I felt like she started to get her own voice. Like she was able to better stand up for herself. She grows a lot in the book and the HEA is heartwarming and almost exactly how I wanted her ending to be.
This is book #4 but if I was suggesting an order I would say read The Vicar’s Daughter first before reading this one. You will get an even better understanding of Lenora and how things progressed up until the start of this book. I highly recommend this book. Such a sweet and loving story, I adore these two characters.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
