Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In debut author Delamere’s clever historical and subtly inspirational romance, Lizzie Poole moves to Australia in 1846 after having an affair. When her lover marries a wealthy miss, Lizzie’s brother ends up fighting a duel. Certain that he has killed his opponent, he flees with his sister. Five years later, Lizzie returns to England masquerading as Ria Thornborough, who left England herself after marrying the brother of her fiancé. She and Lizzie met in Australia and look identical. After contracting a fatal disease, Ria begs Lizzie to go back and make amends with her family. Lizzie steps into Ria’s privileged life and finds that Ria’s in-laws, especially Geoffrey Somerville, capture her attention and emotions. Bits of her own former life seep into her new existence until she is threatened with exposure. Delamere does include Christian elements, but the classic historical plot will appeal to many readers. The romance is filled with emotion and sexual energy, but there is no explicit sensuality, filling a current genre gap for readers who prefer inference. --Amy Alessio

An Heiress at Heart
Love's Grace Book One
By Jennifer Delamere

Lizzie Poole and her brother Tom escape to Australia after Lizzie has an indiscretion with a man who leaves her destitute in Europe. Upon arriving they are both picked out to be free workers by a man who seems all too interested in Lizzie claiming his wife Ria and she will become fast friends. Once they have made their way to their final destination Lizzie soon realizes why Edward was so fascinated by her tale, she looks exactly like his wife Ria. For the past seven years the four have become inseparable friends and after one tragic event then another it is Ria's dying wish that Lizzie make her way back to London and take her place there to make amends for everything Ria has done to her family. Lizzie reluctantly agrees which soon leads her straight to the man she inevitably fall in love with but can never have.

Jennifer Delamere has brought to life a beautiful historical novel transporting the reader straight to London in the mid nineteenth century. The Author brings to life not only a beautiful cast of characters, but also the Crystal Palace and Hyde Park in such irrevocably stunning detail you can imagine every detail to the fullest extent as if you had been there yourself. This novel is thoroughly one of the best historical romances I have come across, so well researched and brought to life that it is a must read for a fan of the genre. Not only is this novel a historical romance though it is also a beautiful Christian romance, and unlike some novels it is not overly "preachy" but more subtle making it interesting to read along as each character faces a unique array of trials that they must overcome.
I was sent a free copy of this novel for an honest review.

Lizzie Poole led a simple and enjoyable life until one act of foolishness forced her to leave her home in London and head to Australia to start a new life. That is, until she met Ria, her new friend and sister. Ria's dying wish was for Lizzie to go back to London and reclaim her life. The only catch is that she will be impersonating Ria and trying her best to keep Ria's family from believe otherwise. From the start Lizzie is faced with a long and tiresome road ahead of her, not to mention all the colorful and cruel characters she meets along the way.

What I loved most about this book was that our heroine is not your typical hopeless romantic with her head in the air. She is a real woman with real values and a smart head on her shoulders. She is not naïve and is certainly not waiting for some man to come and sweep her off her feet unexpectedly. She is a character that you can put stock in and really feel sympathy for because her lot in life has not been the easiest one to face. I had such an emotional tie to Lizzie and I was definitely on her team. I love realistic characters like her and although Jennifer writes Lizzie as vulnerable sometimes, I think it only illuminates her depth as a character and her ability to overcome even the most extenuating circumstances.

Geoffrey was probably the character that Lizzie interacted with the most, and I must admit that I wasn't too fond of him at first. When we meet Geoffrey, he has been given a new title because of the recent death of his two brothers. He seems like a noble and intelligent man, but I almost wanted to tell him to lighten up at times. He knew that something wasn't right with Ria (Lizzie), but he also knew that he couldn't stay away from her.

There are so many things I just loved about this book, but before I get to it, here's the story in a nut shell.

The story opens with a Prologue in 1846 and our heroine, Lizzie and her brother Tom are traveling by caravan through New South Wales in Australia toward new life and new opportunities.

While on route, we find out the reasons behind their leaving England to come to this strange new land and why both are looking forward to the end of their long journey. Their guide, Mr. Edward Smythe, has taken great interest in Lizzie and is most eager for her to meet his wife. He believes that they just might find that they have some things in common.

In the first chapter of the book the author takes us five years into the future, middle of Victorian era London, and we're introduced to the hero, Geoffrey Somerville who with his best friend James Simpson, had just run over a young miss with his carriage, in front of James' Aunt's home. Both men are intrigued by the young woman that upon close inspection seems to be James' cousin and Geoffrey's sister in law, who has disappeared ten years ago after her elopement to his brother Edward.

Geoffrey Somerville has been uprooted from a small perish where he served as a Vicar, to take over a title from his deceased older brother and is still finding his footing into the society and his new duties as Lord Sommerville.

It's always such a pleasant surprise when an author takes her time in developing the romance and having us follow them along was a trip worth taking.

The rest of the story you'll have to read for yourselves, and I highly recommend you do.

For a debut novel I was really surprised how well written it was.
