Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Viscount's Veiled Lady is the third and final book in the “Whitby Weddings” series by author Jenni Fletcher. Although this story can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend the entire series based in the town of Whitby. Whitby is a seaside town in Yorkshire, northern England rich in history. If you’ve already ready book two in this series, then you’ve already met Arthur Amberton, Viscount Scorborough. Arthur was definitely an interesting character in the second book. After fighting with his father over a forced engagement he mysteriously disappeared for nine months with everyone assuming he was dead. He returned at the end of book two very much alive… This story picks up from book two with Arthur living and working on a farm away from society and avoiding the responsibility of his title. Frances Webster is the younger sister of the woman Arthur was secretly engaged to six years ago before his disappearance. After an accident at 18 that has scarred the one side of her face and ended her engagement she has chosen to hide behind a veil. She assumes her family is embarrassed by her scarring and so she hides from the world creating and selling her handmade jewelry made of Whitby Jet. I absolutely adored Frances and Arthur from the very beginning. They were two extremely lovable people who are hiding from the world, in desperate need of someone to help them see a way back to life. As these two meet again they form a friendship and gradually start to trust and reveal their fears and insecurities with each other. It was wonderful to see them support each other and help each other gain their self confidence back and start to have feeling for each other. Although their path to HEA is not completely smooth, their romance was well written and beautifully done. This was an absolutely perfect story to end this series. From the wonderful secondary characters, the fabulous storyline, the fascinating setting of Whitby, to a couple who captured my heart, it was a story I just couldn’t put down! It was great to see a glimpse of Ianthe & Robert from the first book and I loved how Violet and Lance (Arthur’s twin younger brother) from the second book played a major role in this story as well. Such a fascinating city Whitby and a wonderful series that I highly recommend!
