Welcome back everyone, I feel like it’s been forever since I last read a regency/historical romance.
Although this isn’t a regency romance, it is set in those times. Why isn’t it a regency romance if it’s set in that time?
Because neither of the characters are from or involved in the aristocracy. Well other than their “business” dealings. None of which are legal.
Both Louisa and Jacob have faced hardship after hardship, which wasn’t uncommon in those years, and yet found ways to rise above it and make a life for themselves. Even if that life wasn’t what they were expecting, they made it so they were in control.
I admire that both of them were able to make difficult decisions and used their limited skills to create a profitable and (mostly) happy life. The way Jacob and Louisa’s best friend were able to break through her self-imposed grief to help her accept her life was amazing. Definitely an ending I was happy with!
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review; next week I’ll be reviewing Venators: Promises Forged by Devri Walls. Continue to read further down to find out about the author.
