My Review

Historical Romances… my cozy reads. I’m always open to read a historical romance by a new-to-me author, I’m always marveled by the plot, the characters and even the historical and social elements that I get to learn.

In this book we follow Fiona and Brandon, two people that had a past together, they had loved each other, then something happened.

Betrayal, secrets, love, grief, duty, choice, family… there are a lot of things that move us as human beings. This book has that too which made it realistic and I could connect with the characters, each is very good because there are always differences between past and present.

Speaking about the characters, I loved them. I loved that they knew each other previously, because the fact that they had that history gave me the possibility to see their development and relationship grow in a different way. Plus, there is always drama when people have history.

Overall, this story is filled with emotion and the overcoming of the past and moving on towards happiness and growth. It was quite interesting for me because the circumstances that lead to the romance and the “get-together” of the characters is not as usual, which was a breath of fresh air for me. I can’t wait to see what else Jeanine Englert will have for us in future books.
