Trent Hawthorne can’t believed he’s married, and his heart is having a hard time accepting the idea there was no love behind this union. Now, he and Adelaide must find a way to make this marriage work … until somebody notices they don’t know how.
I was looking forward to reading this book because I enjoyed SO much the previous one (“An Elegant Façade”). But, no matter how much I tried to like this story, it just didn’t work for me.
Writing is good, dialogues are fine … those were not the problem. The thing was that I didn’t like the plot, the big idea of the book, the whole courtship thing. I couldn’t connect with it.
Even though the main characters were facing what we can call a very hard and awkward situation, I believe they should have taken another approach in order to find a proper solution. I mean, Trent acted like a coward the entire book, and I wasn’t expecting that from him. It was a bit disappointing. Adelaide was better, though. I liked her more.
I’m not saying it’s a bad story; it’s just that I couldn’t be drawn into it.
However, for some reason, I’m letting my expectations go up again for the last book. Let’s see what the Duke’s story brings us!
**I received a copy of this book from Bethany House through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own**
+ “Intention was all well and good, but what was he actually going to do.”
+ “In her experience, people would believe whatever they wished to anyway.”
+ “The problem with conversations is that someone had to speak in order to start them.”
