“This is an adorably sweet and uncomplicated romance.”

~ Under the Covers

Is it any surprise that I’m here to tell you that I’m in love with this childhood best friends romance? I adore everything Joanna Shupe writes and here she’s given us a different type of Gilded Age romance set in Newport, Rhode Island. I haven’t personally been to the gorgeous “cottages” (read impressive summer mansions for the wealthy) but they’re definitely on my bucket list of places to visit.⁣

This is an adorably sweet and uncomplicated romance. Our heroine is set on marrying a Duke, even though she’ll have to leave her family behind in America, because that’s what her mother has always wanted for her. But her childhood best friend is back in town looking for a wife, and he’s determined finally that no one else except Maddie will do.⁣

The conflict isn’t super heavy though and I can’t say the characters stand up to some of my faves by this author but it’s a solid start to a new series and I can’t wait to read more.

  1. This sounds good but I’m not sure this author is for me. I read the Rogue of Fifth Avenue. While I did like it, it wasn’t enough to make me want to read book 2.
