Publication Year: 2019
Purchase and Synopsis
My rating: Five Stars.
This book blew me out of the water. Quite honestly, I didn’t know what to expect having never read a book by Camden before. But wow. The historical emphasis really inspired me and I had a fantastic time learning about the origin of food laws and requirements, before the FDA was ever invented.
Set amidst one of the sweetest romances I think I’ve ever read, this book was pure perfection. I haven’t really been into romance lately as the traditional sense of the word has been overrun in recent times with books that are annoyingly sweet and over the top detailed romances that left me more irritated than anything else. This was the perfect balance. It focused enough on the actual characters and outlying characters that it left it way more interesting than I thought possible.
I really related to the main character of Annabelle. And Gray too. They both had personality characteristics that made them unique and relatable. The side stories for the siblings of the main characters has me super excited for book two of the series! Book three better be about Luke. That’s all I have to say about that. 😀
I loved this book and would highly recommend it! This is the way romance should be written.
Thank you Miss Camden for such beautiful writing! I can’t wait to read more!
