I was captivated by this story. It was engaging right from the start, and I couldn’t put the book down. I loved the 1800s London setting. Kristi does a great job of including setting details throughout the story. The way she writes about this setting makes the time period easier to understand and feel connected to. The book has a romantic, cozy atmosphere. The love story unfolds beautifully, and includes some exciting action and suspense as well. The characters are written honestly and realistically, and they are easy to relate to. I felt close to Georgina as I read her story, and I couldn’t wait for her to find true love. The title fits the story perfectly, since Georgina struggles with the front she puts up before others. She grows throughout the story, and it’s rewarding to see her mature toward the end of the book. The way that the author includes spirituality feels natural and honest without being cheesy or forced. Immediately after reading this book, I read the other two stories in the Hawthorne House series. I’m eagerly awaiting the next book, which comes out next February. I highly recommend this book.
Are there any books you’d recommend that I read next?
