St. Martin’s Paperbacks. (Cavensham Heiresses, Bk. 6). Feb. 2020. 368p. ISBN 9781250296016. pap. $7.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
After the death of her horrid husband, whom she did not love, Lady Avalon Warwyk establishes herself in the town of Thistledown, raising her son away from city life. When Devan Ferris arrives as the replacement of the local vicar, Avalon is dismayed. The brother to her son’s guardian, Devan has been sent to spy on how she is raising Thane. When he discovers Avalon has set up a business to help resettle women who have fallen on hard times, his interest grows, and Avalon begins to wonder if he might be just the help she needs.
VERDICT MacGregor’s latest in the “Cavensham Heiresses” series (The Bad Luck Bride) will delight those looking to warm their hearts with a tender read. Passionately defiant of her past, Avalon aims to right the wrongs in Regency England, while Devan stands at the ready to help her. Though the sixth book in the series, this is still a great jumping-on point for new readers.
