A bit off the mark of the previous two.
It’s ADAM SYLVAINE’s turn at love when newly-widowed Lady Wareham aka EVIE DUGGAN comes to Pennyroyal Green. Her lurid past comes with her, and the virtuous ladies and loyal vicar followers have already turned their backs. There’s instant tension between these two beautiful people who understand each other. Perhaps their romance is rather pale in comparison to Phoebe's and her Marquess; Genevieve's and her Duke to bowl me over. For all her glamour, Evie is a down-to-earth product of a poor childhood who has honed survival skills to support her family; her beauty was her ticket. She helps several of the Pennyroyals but it doesn’t take much for envy, etc., to discredit her. Adam, for all his goodness and healing power, is lonely, loveless but not a compelling lover. Evie will give up Adam so that he can continue his good works, but after a profound night together and fierce inner struggles, he just can’t give her up. Other memorable characters: Evie’s maid Henny and the dying curmudgeon Lady Fennimore who passes on some advice about love. Olivia Eversea is in the background long enough for us to wonder if she’ll move beyond Lyon. Next book?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
