Eileen Richards is a new author for me, and after seeing review ratings on other books I decided to give AN HONORABLE WISH a whirl to find it was quite good. And because I hadn’t read the first book of this series – A Ladies Wish – I can fully attest to the fact that AN HONORABLE WISH is a stand-alone read.
As far as character development, both Tony and Juliet were nicely fleshed out. I loved Juliet’s independent spirit and generosity towards her friends. Tony, was also a great person fighting his demons of a gambling addiction but discovering that loving Juliet and proving his worth would be in his best interests. However proving he was a changed man before the truth of ruining another man’s life was a battle against time. There was of course a villain in the piece and this added to the overall enjoyment of watching the love story unfold.
All in all, a very enjoyable read I can highly recommend.
An Honorable Wish by Eileen Richards is part 2 of her series, A Lady's Wish. This book picks up where book 1, An Unexpected wish ended. In the first book we read about how Anne married Nathaniel Matthews, the oldest brother, and now in this book we read about Tony the youngest brother and what has happened with him!He has just returned from town after winning an estate in a poker game but does not want anyone to know especially his older brother, as he is trying to change the way he has been in the past. So he offers a fair price for the mansion he won to try to take some of the stigma away from the fact he won it gambling. So Tony goes home to change his ways get married to Juliet, and lead a respectable life!
Juliet, Anne and Sophia's sister, secretly loves Tony and always has even when he was supposedly courting Sophia! She is thrilled when she sees Tony has come home and he starts paying attention to her, and even goes with her to one of their neighbors' home where the family is not doing well.This is one of the tenants of the man Tony won the estate from, a Mr Chelsworth. Mr Bartleby, the man who acts as the manager for Mr Chelsworth, and who wants to court Juliet, is in charge of all the tenants and Juliet tells Tony he has been stealing from the tenants, and therefore also from the people they are helping! Tony starts looking around, and goes ballistic when he finds out that Mr. Bartleby has been abusing a lot of the young unmarried women of their town, including Juliet!
Without giving too much away, read this book I know you will like it and it brings out so many things that historical romances do; how important a single woman's reputation is, the ways that women were stifled from doing as they liked so they would not be known as a bad example, even the reading material is monitored. I loved how this book ends and can't wait until the next book in this series! I loved the ever changing plot of this book, the dialog between the sisters, the neighbors, and the townspeople! I also enjoyed the sexual angst between Tony and Juliet, as well as the anxiety they both suffer!
Will Tony and Juliet get together?
Will Mr Bartleby have his way with Juliet, or harm her?
Will Tony's brother find out about his gambling?
How will this book end?!
I gave this book 5 stars and look forward to reading more by this author.
