An Accident, Justines' Father murdered 20 years before and lies to deceive William Felkirk all make for an exciting read. Justine's whole life has been lived to protect her sister. Diamonds, A jewelry store, and Will's beloved horse intertwine to make a good story. Will's memory is gone and he cannot remember being attacked. Justine brings him to his brother's house. She nurses him back to health. It is sometime before his memory returns. Again Justine saves his life. A very enjoyable read. I highly recommend it.
This intriguing story had lots of great elements--amnesia, murder, lost diamonds, deception, despair, and of course, love! When William Felkirk wakes up, he can't remember anything from the past six months. He's been told he had a terrible accident and has been near death for weeks. And, oh yes, he's also married! Justine is beautiful, kind, and very attentive, but Will can't believe he doesn't remember her at all. Justine is glad that Will has finally recovered from his injuries, but she would just as soon he not remember a thing. Her well-being and that of her younger sister depend on everyone believing that she is Lady Felkirk. Dark secrets from her past threaten not only her but Will as well. Can she keep everyone safe, get everyone what they want, and still manage to hold on to the unexpected love she has found? I found the amnesia situation believable and the reasons for the deception compelling. I'd definitely recommend this book. I'm also interested in reading about the other couples in the story, which I believe are featured in earlier books. And I'm sure sister Margot will get her own HEA one of these days.
A lovely historical romance that featured murders and secrets, The Truth About Lady Felkirk was a good read. It was an enjoyable book that I quite liked. Justine was a resilient character who always tried to protect her sister, even when it meant she had to sacrifice herself. She was a good person at heart and tried to be one, but her circumstances always forced her into bad situations. She was a character that was easy to sympathize for and I really liked her. William was also great. He was very clever, enough that he knew right away that something was off about Justine. But, he was also sweet and, even after finding out the truth, only wanted what was best for her. I thought he was adorable. The romance was lovely. Justine and William were very sweet together, and there was definitely some steaminess as well. I thought they were a perfect match. The plot was well paced and I was kept interested the entire way through. It was predictable, though, and I suspected early on who the culprit behind everything was. So, the story wasn't anything special or epic, but it was enjoyable and I really liked it. And, the ending was lovely. The Truth About Lady Felkirk was a wonderful historical romance that I really enjoyed. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out. *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
While You Were Sleeping In The Regency. I really enjoyed this book. There were some questions in my mind about the gap in time from when Will left his brother to when Justine brought him back with his massive head wound. I also had some concerns about how quickly and completely he recovered both physically and mentally from a couple of months of coma. His amnesia only covered the time he had been away. While he felt weak for a while, he was up and walking right after lying still for a couple of months. But I was more than willing to suspend my disbelief almost the whole time and enjoyed the story. I received an advance copy of this book, because I have been following Chris Merrill since her first book and her assistant is an online acquaintance. For an honest review. Honestly, it's good stuff!
