Love Unexpected, a Regency-era mystery, is part of a new series, yet it contains some beloved characters (and one that we love to hate) from some of the other books by G.G. Vandagraff.
Marianne’s 12-year-old daughter, Gweet, (what a cute nickname for Margaret!), was so precocious. I love that she, upon meeting Captain Ernest Saunders, immediately proposed marriage to him. Though I wouldn’t have been quite so bold as to propose when I was that age, I could most certainly see myself being smitten by a handsome sea captain and wishing for that proposal!
It was interesting to delve a little into the world of horseracing and the nefarious activities that can take place in that world of high stakes. The mystery surrounding the death of the jockey was well developed. It was not until the end of the story when the Captain solved the mystery that I knew the resolution, though I do want to take credit for having half of it figured out before then. The red herrings along the way served their purpose well.
Things seemed a little choppy at the beginning, but the story was interesting and sweet, and if it remained that way at the end, I no longer noticed.

I would like to thank Mindy Holt for giving me this item. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
Marianne is a widow and has 12 year old twins. Gweet, the girl, is a handful, but is also darling at the same time and she stole the show, in my opinion. Captain Saunders is freshly back from sea after a long, long time and is also a guest at the house where Marianne and Gweet are staying. There is a simmering attraction between Marianne and Captain Saunders, but it felt like a very slow burn.
There is an element of danger and mystery that enshrouds a horse race and Marianne's life is in danger because of it. She becomes the victim of a lot of different incidents, trying to warn her away from the races, but the big mystery is who wants to keep her away and why.
I enjoy a clean Regency romance with the mysterious suspenseful twists and this one was fun and entertaining, but didn't completely sweep me away.
Content: mild romance, mild violence
