This was an utterly delightful read for any time of the yearThere are no mysteries no murders no spies no Big Misunderstanding it's just a lovely warm story about two people finding each other and falling in love and I can think of no better recommendation When you can write as well as Grace Burrowes and give us characters who feel as though they are real people you don't need to spin an adventure yarn as well in order to fill in the boring bits Because the boring bits are where the characters interact and talk to each other; they're where the relationships are explored and developed and that's very rarely boring in my bookLouisa and Joseph are social misfits and importantly seem as though they're each half of a whole Louisa is outwardly confident and sometimes outspoken where Joseph is self effacing and reticent; but where Joseph exudes an inner confidence with who he is Louisa has spent most of her life trying to be the daughter she thinks her parents and society think she should be They have a passing acuaintance as neighbours but a friendship soon develops between them which uickly grows into love They don't say it not until right at the end of the book but it's there on the page in all they think and doI adore books like this in which the evolution of the relationship between the hero and heroine feels completely natural and which doesn't reuire lots of fancy plot twists and turns to keep the reader interestedWe get to see a lot of Louisa's large family too; it's nice to see siblings and spouses who are all happily getting along rather than jostling for positionThe book is beautifully written and is full of affection and humour Joseph Carrington makes a gorgeous hero attractive honourable and very modest with the soul of a poet; Louisa Windham is intuitive and fiercely intelligent so much so that she tries to hide the true extent of her cleverness with a great sense of humour and a great deal of affection to bestowThere's no Big Misunderstanding in the novel but there are a couple of secrets which both Joseph and Louisa feel could derail their happiness It's clear to the reader however that the affection shared by the couple is strong enough to weather them and both characters realise this too but the right time for confession never seems to arriveWhen it eventually comes the secrets are dispensed with without melodrama and the Carringtons are left happily to their own devicesAnd I'm left with that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you've just finished a truly lovely book With thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the review copy

Grace Burrowes µ 7 Summary

Astardly fortune hunter seeks to compromise her reputation by revealing her secret identity at a holiday ballBefore she can be publicly ruined close family friend Sir Joseph Carrington saves the day by offering. Maybe it’s my mood or the Windham series has a different style compared to Burrowes recent works but I didnt find this book approachable at all It was tough to read for me because it felt like we were dropped in on the couple mid courtship I havent read the previous Windham series novels so I dont know if their story started earlier but in the first chapter of this novel Louisa and Joseph had already met and formed a friendship with each other I really wish we got the story that was in the summary the simplicity of it seemed endearingly straightforward Instead the book is filled with details about political machinations poncy cousins scheming neighbors an assault abusive nannies cheating wives secret bastard children that sully the hero’s image for nearly half the novel view spoilerwhen they couldve explained the kid’s origins from the start hide spoiler
