A Stranger at Fellsworth~Sarah Ladd~

A Stranger at Fellsworth (Treasures of Surrey, #3)

 

~Synopsis~

Could losing everything be the best thing to happen to Annabelle Thorley?

In the fallout of her deceased father’s financial ruin, Annabelle’s prospects are looking bleak. Her fiancé has called off their betrothal, and now she remains at the mercy of her controlling and often cruel brother. Annabelle soon faces the fact that her only hope for a better life is to do the unthinkable and run away to Fellsworth, the home of her long-estranged aunt and uncle, where a teaching position awaits her. Working for a wage for the first time in her life forces Annabelle to adapt to often unpleasant situations as friendships and roles she’s taken for granted are called into question.

Owen Locke is unswerving in his commitments. As a widower and father, he is fiercely protective of his only daughter. As an industrious gamekeeper, he is intent on keeping poachers at bay even though his ambition has always been to eventually purchase land that he can call his own. When a chance encounter introduces him to the lovely Annabelle Thorley, his steady life is shaken. For the first time since his wife’s tragic death, Owen begins to dream of a second chance at love.

As Owen and Annabelle grow closer, ominous forces threaten the peace they thought they’d found. Poachers, mysterious strangers, and murderers converge at Fellsworth, forcing Annabelle and Owen to a test of fortitude and bravery to stop the shadow of the past from ruining their hopes for the future.

~My Review~

Wow! I’ve been a fan of Sarah Ladd’s books ever since she wrote her first book “An Heiress at Winterwood” which is one of my favorite books written by her. This novel has to be one of her best books yet!

The story line was enjoyable and it kept my attention until the last delightful page!
I enjoyed the journey that unfolded in the life of the heroine,Annabelle.

Another thing was that the hero was a very likable character and swoon worthy. *sigh*
This story reminded a lot of Jane Eyre so that’s another plus!

I highly recommend this novel because it’s filled with a wonderful combination of adventure,mystery,and heartwarming romance. (4 stars)

What I’m Reading!~ April Edition

Hi Everyone! I know I haven’t posted anything much in a while. I’m going to try to get better with that. I love to blog but somehow here lately I’ve been pretty busy to just sit down and post or even schedule things to posts. Hopefully I’ll get better in the near future. 🙂  So on to what I’m reading. These are also some of the reads that I started in March. So here it goes,

 

A Stranger at Fellsworth (Treasures of Surrey, #3)

 

The Secret of the India Orchid (Proper Romance)

Grace and the Preacher

 

When Tides Turn (Waves of Freedom, #3)

The Vicar's Daughter: A Proper Romance by [Kilpack, Josi S.]

 

All of these books have very wonderful beginnings and I’m very optimistic as to me finishing at least some of the books this month.  🙂

An Uncommon Courtship~Kristi Ann Hunter~

An Uncommon Courtship (Hawthorne House, #3)

~Synopsis~

When her mother’s ill-conceived marriage trap goes awry, Lady Adelaide Bell unwittingly finds herself bound to a stranger who ignores her. Lord Trent Hawthorne, who had grand plans to marry for love, is even less pleased with the match. Can they set aside their first impressions before any chance of love is lost?

~My Review~

I can NEVER put enough emphasis on how much I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE marriage of convenience stories! I LOVE and adore marriage of convenience stories and they’ll always have a special place in my heart. So when I saw this book and read the plot, I knew I had to read it right away!

This book started out very well and it kept me up reading late into the night. I love when a book has that ability to just lift me up and take me to the place of wonder. *sigh* I loved reading about the different incidents that unfolded following the main character, Lady Adelaide and I really liked her character in the story.

The hero was ok but I wish there was “more” to him as far as concerning his character.
I really enjoyed reading this author’s the first book,” A Noble Masquerade” so I’m determined to read the rest of her series. Although this was s good book I can say it wasn’t my favorite in the series. It did have its ups and downs.
This book was full of intriguing romance and adventure something that’s always a plus in my book. 😉
I highly recommend Kristi Ann Hunter’s books. I can’t wait for more of her upcoming books.
