Review:

It sees like time is slipping away from me or something like that. Typically, I would have my review already written and scheduled for a blog tour, but for some odd reason I forgot to set this review up for the today.  As you can tell by the cover, this book is a Regency romance, a genre that I usually skip over, but in this case I have already read the author's other books (The Heir of Winterwood, The Headmistress of Rosemere), so naturally I signed up to review the third installment.

A Lady at Willowgrove Hall is set in Darbury, England in 1819 and centers on Cecily Faire, a young woman with a haunting past that has been thrown out of her home by her own father, but she has built a new life by graduating from a finishing school to become a lady's companion at Willowgrove Hall. She plans on keeping her past a secret from everyone.

Nathaniel Stanton also has a haunting past, one that is tied to his late father, whom was once a steward of Willowgrove Hall. To his protect his mother and his sisters, he must keep his family's secret and deny himself from everything life has to offer, even love that is until he meets the lovely Cecily Faire, who quickly enchants his heart.

Author Sarah E. Ladd definitely knows the Regency genre and how to craft an intriguing tale with likeable characters. While the plot does sounds cliched, the author did a wonderful job of weaving together a tight story with detail descriptions of the era. Overall, A Lady at Willowgrove Hall is well-written Regency romance that I enjoyed reading from start to finish.
