And I thought . . .
I truly can't say enough good things about this book.
To tell you the truth I haven't recently been too interested in Historical novels. I began my adult reading career reading Historical Romance. And then I found contemporary. I was hooked. And then I found Contemporary Suspense. But because of Tracie Peterson's worked I am now a fan of Historical Romance again.
And now a fan of Tracie Peterson.
A Beauty Refined is book 2 in the series.
I look forward to reading more in this series.
The story was interesting from page one. I have to admit I expected a boy meets girl romance. Followed by events that separate them. And then the two getting together in for a happy ending.
I was very wrong. And that was refreshing.
There is a Happy Ending
The romance is only part of the story. The storyline as described above is about the challenges Phoebe faces once she learns about lies and deceptions in her family.
The story also has a bit of intrigue. There's some plotting, double-dealing, and
underhandness in more than one character.
These aspects of the story make it not a typical romance.
And I liked that. A Beauty Refined is worthy of my 5 star rating.
I wish to thank Litfuse for allowing me the opportunity to read this book. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review.
A huge thanks Tracie Peterson for
re-introducing me to Historical fiction.
