I do admire Amelia... taking care of her deceased friend's baby daughter. However, she did not listen. Graham told her he was going by himself to Liverpool. She did not listen. He told her to stay in the Sutlers' house. She did not listen... she went to the market and I know how well that turned out. She did, though, apologize to Graham and I suppose that made it okay... her overcoming her pride and finally falling in love with the man she had proposed to.
I think if Sarah Ladd had written more pages, or as is more likely, had the opportunity to contribute more pages to the final publication, we could have had more fleshed out characters in Amelia and Graham. As it is, Edward Littleton, the man Amelia Graham is engaged to at the beginning of the story, seemed to be the person with the largest personality on display as his character did not have to overly engage in dialogue and was often reflected upon by others in the book which gave him added dimension. I felt like I only knew a few major things about Amelia at the end: she had long blonde hair, she had a fortune, and she loved Lucy, and those are the things I was introduced to or could guess based on the cover and its description.
It is obvious when reading the book that Sarah Ladd can dream up an interesting plot and write well. I hope that in the future releases in this series that there is more opportunity for the story to move without the somewhat consistent dialogue or action present in this text.
That being said, there were a few other plot twists that were unexpected, but there wasn't much time to flush them out, again because of the aforementioned issue. This book needed to be another 50-100 pages to flush out the ending and have it be as thorough as the first part... that or the people writing up the summary need to revisit what they wrote so they don't spoil the book. Dialogue was pretty good for the most part, but faltered towards the end sounding very modern. It's not a horrible read, but I'd almost suggest NOT reading the back of the book or plot summary so it can be enjoyed more.
It was clean so it has that going for it but I probably won't reread it. I will however, read more by this author because the story itself was good there were just too many details that bogged it down.
This is a Christian Regency Romance. The main characters are people who have loyalty and values. They are brought together by an adorable baby and have to figure if it is enough to keep a relationship.
I enjoyed the writing and the story. This book has all of the elements that I enjoy in a regency romance.
