Book Description:
(By the Publisher)

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.

Review 

This is my first book by this author, and I have to say I’m very impressed by the quality of her writing. 

I was surprised to learn that this is only her second book, the first being A Beautiful Love

Yes, I went after her backlist. It was that good!

The book tells the story of Amelia, a young woman who lived with her ailing step-father and her sister, in Brighton, England. 

The relationship between the girls and their step-relative was very problematic, and upon his imminent death, both sisters would be destitute.

In a last attempt to marry them off, their step-father sent them to a house-party in Lakeshire Park. The invitation came in a very opportune moment, as their host had paid particular attention to Amelia’s sister during her only London Season.

Amelia, a dutiful older sister, went to the party bent on matchmaking and saw on Sir Ronald the answer to all their problems. Unfortunately, her intentions were opposed by those of Mr. Peter Wood, a friend set on uniting Sir. Ronald to his sister Georgiana.

This is an enemy-to-lovers story, but the relationship between the main characters is romantic, sweet, and full of understanding and companionship.

The heroine is strong and principled, but she is also loyal and kind, and I loved her from the first pages. The hero is a tender, funny, and loving brother. Definitely marriage material.

The book is gentle and lovely. It is a clean romance that focuses on small gestures, inner beauty, personality, and disposition of the characters. A truly heartwarming story of family and love. 

Highly recommended!

Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


About the Author:

Megan Walker was raised on a berry farm in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, where her imagination took her to times past and worlds away. While earning her degree in Early Childhood Education, she married her one true love and started a family. But her imaginings of Regency England wouldn’t leave her alone, so she picked up a pen and wrote her first novel, A Beautiful Love: A Regency Fairy Tale Retelling which was published in 2019. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband and three children.

  1. If I had seen this book in a bookstore, I would not buy it 😂 because the front page looks bland. After reading your review, it sounds like a great book which I would love to read. Thank you for the review 💜

      1. Well, to be fair I’ve only read 1 of Kings books and gave it 3 stars, am just really wanting to try more. And again, I’ve been enjoying romances a lot more recently, and craving contemporary. So never say never 🙂
