I hope you had a great weekend. I wanted to share a book recommendation with you. I read A Lily in Disguise a couple of weeks ago, but am just now getting around to sharing my thoughts. 🙂
What are you reading?
About the Book
One woman. Three identities. A handsome lord trying to unmask them all.
To escape the scandals tied to her name, Lillian Markley has gone by an alias for eight years. It was the only way for her to get a reputable job and save enough money to reunite with her sister in America. But when Lily is suddenly let go just as she’s about to reach her goal, she’s offered a salary she can’t refuse in exchange for the unthinkable:
She must masquerade as an heiress at a country estate for the summer.
Being exposed means facing prison, or worse—never seeing her sister again. Run-ins with kidnappers, a suspicious young boy, and a dangerous gentleman who knows her secret quickly has Lily spouting lies as often as she sips her tea—all while battling her growing feelings for Peter Wycliffe, the smiling host who seems to best her at every turn.
Nothing is as simple as it seems. And as the falsehoods begin to mount, Lily must use her arsenal of wits to keep her three facades separate, while preventing Peter—and herself—from discovering the true woman beneath them all.
I picked up A Lily in Disguise solely based on a recommendation from a friend. And boy, I’m so glad I did.
This book was absolutely fantastic. From the witty banter between the hero and heroine and the twists in turns in the story line, I was hooked. Not to mention the great secondary characters that made me love and hate them. In fact a couple of the secondary characters will be making appearances in book 2 which releases this month.
And did I forget to mention the swoon-worthy romance? *Blissful sigh* I was completely captivated until the very last page of this historical romance and nothing could make me happier than to see there will be more books coming by Ms. Scarlett.
If you love historical romances, then you definitely want to pick this one up. I promise you, you won’t be disappointed.
About the Author
*Jessica Scarlett grew up in rural Utah, where lots of wide-open space served as a blank canvas for her rampant imagination. Along with being an author, she is a songwriter and a huge Broadway fan, so don’t be surprised if she hears the people sing or defies gravity on a regular basis.
Being mother to two crazy-eyed kiddos, she has been forced to develop a deep appreciation for humor—which is probably why she laughs so much at her own jokes. Though Jessica currently writes regency romance, she loves dashing heroes from all eras in history, and hopes to one day branch out.
