Add to Goodreads
It is a truth universally acknowledged that two conniving minds are better than one.
Lady Venetia Lockhart has one goal—to prove to her family she is healthy enough for the London Season next year. But between an inattentive family and unwanted suitors, Venetia finds herself struggling to just make it through the hunting season.
Edmund Dawkes, Marquess of Ashbrook has his eyes on the lovely Miss Weatherford. However, despite his best efforts, she doesn’t seem to notice him at all.
With Venetia wanting to avoid all attachments and Edmund seeking to make one, they strike up an instant friendship—and an instant scheme to help one another. After all, what could go wrong with a strategy involving a lady’s glove, a fake love letter, and a few secret conversations? However, when their actions only complicate already strained relationships, and a budding romance gets in the way, can Venetia and Edmund sort through the rubble of their carefully thought out plans and find their way to one another?
What I thought
I received a copy of this book from the Author, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
We have reached the final story of the Lockhart siblings. This series wrapped up so wonderfully, I am very happy with how the entire series has come to an end. This is Venetia’s story and just like all of her siblings love does not come without its challenges. If I am completely honest Venetia was not my favorite of the Lockhart children; however, with this story I grew to like her very much, and of all of the love interests that the siblings have had I think I like Edmund the best. So it surprises me to say that I think that this is my favorite book in this series.
This book can be read as a standalone; however, I would suggest you read the series from the beginning.
You know when the writing is good in a book when you feel butterflies along with the characters. I find it amazing how invested the author can make you feel regarding these characters.
What may be my favorite thing about these characters is their strength. Both of our main characters have challenges that they have to overcome to live the lives they want.
My Rating: /5
