Book Review- Heiress of Winterwood

Amelia, the beautiful young,  heiress to an estate has to get married before turning twenty-four or forfeit her inheritance. Marrying Edward Littleton seems to solve her problem, but when he prohibits baby Lucy, her deceased friends baby, from staying with them; she is ready to do all she can to keep the baby she's raised. 

I enjoyed the English flair of the book. I could easily picture the settings and even characters with some of the BBC productions. The many unorthodox methods  the characters took and occurrences that happened were both eyebrow raising and unique.

The first half of the book seemed to drag on, and the second half felt rather rushed. The characters main 'issues' were resolved rather quickly. The romance was questionable as well. Not only was Graham a recent widow he was an absent husband. It seemed that he got over his late wife rather quickly. Towards the end of the story the story felt quite similar and redundant with Lisa Norato's Prize of My Heart.

I did enjoy the other unique aspects that the author wove in. Overall Heiress of Winterwood was an enjoyable read. I received this complimentary copy from Litfuse in exchange for this review.
