I loved Julianne Donaldson’s books, so when I saw her endorsement on this book I was too excited to read it. And I can tell you that endorsement was well earned.
I couldn’t put this book down! I loved every second of it. From Peter and Amelia’s shenanigans as rivals to their sweet moments of friendship growing into more, I was invested from the first page. And as the oldest of three sisters, I could completely relate to Amelia’s love and care for her younger sister. Everything was about Clara–about her happiness and her security. As a sister, that felt very real to me.
This is just a lovely, clean romance full of heart that honestly feels like a breath of fresh air. Fans of clean regency reads will adore this one. (Full disclosure: I read this book and then watched Pride & Prejudice because it just felt right.) I’ll be looking for more from author Megan Walker! Lakeshire Park releases April 7th.
A huge thank you to Shadow Mountain and NetGalley for a complimentary copy of this novel. All opinions belong completely to me.

Peter Wood. Sign. Me. Up. I either smiled or melted in every single scene where he walked across the page. He’s a gem and I can’t wait for you to meet him.
