Happy Saturday, Reader Friends!
I’m excited to bring you the first review of the new year. I had the pleasure of reading A Peculiar Courtship while on my vacation. If you missed the first book’s review, click here to check out Saving Shadow.
About the Book
The Blurb: “Lord Jonathon Beckett’s mission is simple: retrieve Lady Hannah and place her under the protection of the Crown. But he isn’t prepared for the havoc she inflicts on his world, making him question whether his duty as an agent of the Crown should always come before his heart.
Lady Hannah’s father has uncovered evidence exposing a French traitor to the Crown. Willing to do anything to silence him, the traitor’s primary target has become Lady Hannah. Keeping her safe means locking her away from Society, but she refuses to stand idly by, letting others put their lives on the line to protect her. Instead, she will stop at nothing to learn to defend herself, even at the risk of losing Lord Jonathon’s protection, or his affections.
With a sinister scheme in play to collapse the English government from within, Lord Jonathon must protect Lady Hannah from the French spies intending to use her as a pawn in their game of treachery. But can he protect her from herself?”
A Peculiar Courtship was a great follow on to Saving Shadow. It had the same great regency detail that I loved in Saving Shadow. Even better, Lord Jonathon, Eliza’s brother from Saving Shadow, was the hero in the novel. He seemed to be a bit clueless but it provided some entertaining moments.
I liked that I got to see Shadow and other characters from book one, but most importantly, A Peculiar Courtship can stand on it’s own. Lady Hannah and the friends she accrues while running from her life make an interesting read. It was easy to finish this book in one setting as I wanted to know if the bad guy would get away.
I’m hoping there will be a book three.
*This is not a Christian read, but a clean one. There are instances of drinking and kissing. I do not recall any foul language.
**I received a free copy from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion and was not required.
