An utterly delightful read from beginning to end, I couldn't help but love Grace's wild imagination, infectious enthusiasm, and never give up determination.
Grace never thought that she would find herself in an arranged marriage, but when she bravely takes her sister's place as the bride of Lord Frederick Percy she is determined to make the best of the situation. All is not as it appears and she will need her quick wits and exuberant charm to not only win Percy's heart, but to solve a murder.
An enchanting romance, with excellent characters, riveting dialogue, and crackling chemistry. I loved how in awe Percy is of Grace, and how he is reminded by his friends and staff who are supportive of their relationship of what a treasure she is. I loved that even though Percy has made his mistake he still has many faithful friends in his corner. Grace is such a breath of fresh air to his estate, she isn't afraid to be upfront and open about her faith, while living every minute to the fullest, with a relatable love of novel adventures.
Overall, this was such a fun read. I couldn't help but fall in love with the characters from Grace and Percy to the staff of Havensbrook Hall. Grace is infectiously delightful, and without guile. A swoonworthy Christmas romance, full of adventure, sure to bring a smile to your face.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
