Winter Reads: Misleading Miss Verity

All opinions are my 100% mine.

Last week, Kregel Publications published Misleading Miss Verity, the third book in Regency Brides: Daughters of Aynsley series by Carolyn Miller.

Verity Hatherleigh has a mind of her own—but her actions do not impress her viscount papa. When she gets into one scrape too many, he sends her off to the wilds of Scotland to rethink her headstrong ways.

Anthony Jardine relished his role as curate, but his new duties as laird of Dungally aren’t always to his liking. Though he thought his new inheritance would be a blessing, somehow he’s finding nothing but trouble on these estates. And the intelligent, compassionate, feisty lass who was sent to rusticate in his territory is one of the biggest problems. He’s falling in love with her, but she doesn’t share the faith that’s his foundation—not to mention he’s been lying to her about who he really is. For the truth-loving Verity, that may be unforgivable.

The tangled web these two have woven may spell disaster for their happiness—and for the tenants of Dungally.

Final Thoughts

There's nothing more thrilling than drinking a cup of coffee late-at-night just so I can right a last minute review for Misleading Miss Verity, a book I read last weekend but forgotten to write down my thoughts about it for this week's book blog tour, which comes to an end tonight.

Misleading Miss Verity is a "regency romance" story, which isn't my favorite setting for a romance read. My two reasons for wanting to read the novel are: 1. I like Carolyn Miller's writing style. 2. The novel is set in Scotland! (FYI: I have ancestors from Scotland.)

The main character is Verity Hatherligh and I didn't care much for her at the beginning but as the story went along, I ended up liking her. I know the character appeared in the previous novel, Underestimating Miss Cecilia, but I don't remember one thing about her from it. (FYI: I haven't read the first novel, A Hero For Miss Hatherleigh, in the series).

Like all romances, there's also a romantic love interest, which in this tale he happens to be Anthony Jardine. There's nothing special about this character. I actually thought he was quite boring for the most part.

The dialogue and descriptions throughout the novel were pretty decent.

Overall, Misleading Miss Verity has an intriguing plot with a likeable main character. While it's not exactly perfect, it's still a decent read.
