I LOVE LOVE LOVE Regency Romance!
They are SO AMAZING!
If you have read Sarah Eden's books you will ABSOLUTELY LOVE this debut novel by Julianne Donaldson!
That same era!
That same genre!
That same great talent!
That same proper romance with enough to make you smile but not so much to make you blush!
Marianne is bored and being hounded by an unwanted suitor.
Now she has a chance to get away from it all and find adventure in the English countryside manor of Edenbrooke.
On the way you will cross a terrifying run-in with a highwayman, harmless flirtations, and a mysterious stranger.
Just the kind of adventures to take away Marianne's boredom.
"Fate had something other than a relaxing summer in mind when it sent Marianne to Edenbrooke."

Oh my this book was AMAZING!!! I loved it!! This is a book I would recommend to everyone who loves a good romance, a little excitement, mystery, and a lot of laughs.
From the beginning I was attached to Marianne. The poor girl had been shipped off to the city after the death of her mother. Her father had sent her to family in one place and sent her twin sister to another. Separated from her family and the beautiful countryside she felt lost. She left to meet up with her sister at Edenbrooke as soon as the invitation came.
The scenery was breathtaking and made me want to visit the English countryside. Sigh. Maybe one day. I loved the humor that came with some embarrassing moments for Marianne especially in front of handsome men. Just thinking about it makes me want to go re-read this book today.
I'd heard so many good things about Edenbrooke. I don't know why it took me so long to finally read it! If you want a beautiful, relaxing, romantic read go get this book now! You'll enjoy it.
