Review: Miss Newbury’s List

Happy Monday!!

Today I wanted to share a book review of Miss Newbury’s List by Megan Walker. It releases tomorrow and it’s definitely one you want on your TBR list!

About the Book

Before Rosalind weds, she wants to experience ten things. Meeting Charlie wasn’t on her list.

England, 1820

Rosalind Newbury is counting down the days until her wedding to the Duke of Marlow, a man she has only met twice, and she knows exactly how she wants to spend her time. As a child, Ros created a list of ten things to do before her wedding day. So far, she has done none of them.

She is determined to tackle each item, though she’ll have to accomplish them all in secret. After all, a soon-to-be-duchess is not usually allowed to bury treasure in the pasture, eat sweets all day, or learn how to swim. She enlists the help of her best friend, Liza, who brings along her cousin, Charlie, a prodigal son-turned-boxer who has come to the countryside to mend his reputation and learn how to be his father’s heir.

Together, the three of them work to complete the list, and as each item is crossed off, an unlikely friendship blossoms between Ros and Charlie. The more time they spend together, the more Ros falls in love with this imperfect man and his good heart.

With the wedding looming, Ros must decide to either admit her romantic feelings for Charlie and risk her family’s future, or keep her promise to marry the duke and start a new life as a noblewoman.

Book Review

pin me

Megan Walker’s writing gives me all the feels. I read her debut and new immediately, I’d want to read whatever she wrote. The way she puts emotions into her stories so I totally empathize with the character and feel their emotions is amazing.

In Miss Newbury’s List, Rosalind Newbury is set to get married and isn’t quite ready for the turn of events. I don’t want to give anything a way but 1) I loved her list. It made me laugh at times when she tried to cross off an item. 2) I loved Charlie. He was an awesome hero. 3) The romance was off the charts.

This book was highly entertaining, causing me to read it all in one sitting. Unfortunately that means I have to wait for the next book. However, with her debut Lakeshire Park, I’m sure I’ll be re-reading Miss Newbury’s List when I need another dose of high romance, good writing, and characters I can empathize with.
