I received an arc of this lovely book, and I must say I enjoyed it immensely.
Historical Romances are my weakness. I adore them. In fact, they are my most-read genre. So, when I sat down to read The Luck of the Bride by Janna MacGregor, I had a happy little smile on my face. But the book still has to meet my expectations to keep that smile in place. In this case, the book exceeded them.
March Lawson was fierce. At only sixteen, one week shy of her seventeenth birthday, this young woman found herself the soul caretaker of her younger siblings when their parents succumbed to illness. Her baby brother was only a year old. Her two sisters were just eleven and ten. A tall order for someone her age, and yet, March took on the role of mother and sister with unmatched grace and grit. And if that wasn't enough, she was also responsible for providing for her family, and that is where the meat of the story lies, for the guardian her father appointed disappeared without a word and his solicitor retired with no one to take his place. March was left to her own devices to figure out how to feed, clothe, and keep a roof over her siblings' heads. For years.
A successor trustee, Marquess of McCalpin, enters the picture to manage the money for the Lawson sisters' trust fund. A trust fund that March couldn't touch until she turned twenty-five, but neglect from his predecessors forced her hand to...well...take matters in her own hands. This is where everything turns around for the family...for the better...and for the worse.
Oh, my goodness. MacGregor's writing style was superb. I was completely engrossed in the lives of these characters. Michael Cavenshaw, the Marquess of McCalpin, was not your usual Marquess. He has quite a secret, one he tries to hide from everyone. If anyone was to learn this secret it would ruin him, embarrass his family. But when Michael and March find themselves getting closer, does he want to trust her with his secret? He already knows hers. Or does he?
Trust me, you'll want to find out. Go read this book when it releases May 1, 2018.
