This is the second book in the Lost Ladies of London series, and it's all about Rose's adventures after she leaves Morton Manor. If you haven't read book 1, go read it first! This review will have spoilers for the first book, which was a really good read.
After being locked away in Morton Manor for the last six months, Rose finally escapes the old asylum. Desperate to return to London and avoid her father, Rose makes her way to the local inn in the middle of the night. Seeing her father's coach outside, she tries to return to the manor house to warn Nicole. But Rose loses her way in the woods and finds herself outside Everleigh Manor instead.
Mistaken for a newly hired maid, Rose goes along with the deception. When Rose meets the owner of the manor, Viscount Farleigh, she's driven to help the burdened widower and his two young children, even if she loses her heart in the process.
This was another lovely romance with a suspenseful mystery that had me hooked until the end! It's a steamy read, it could be read as a standalone but I enjoyed the first one and recommend it as well. I loved both Rose and Christian. Each of Adele Clee's heroines are distinct and have their own personalities. Rose was so sweet and kind, in contrast to Nicole's spunk and spirit. Christian was a mature man with a weight on his shoulders, experiencing love for the first time. The mystery kept me listening and guessing until the end.
The narration was great, the narrator performed separate voices for each character and read dramatically. She made it a really easy listen. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.
This was an entertaining story concerning Lady Rose Darby and what happened to her when she escaped from the asylum. She finds her way into a nearby Manor House and pretends to be a maid. The house belongs to Christian Knight, Viscount Farleigh, a widower with two children. Rose quickly becomes involved in the life of the house and there is a definite attraction between Rose and Christian. There is also a mystery concerning the death of his first wife and a strange illness that affects the staff. The action takes place in the country but also in London. In London, we meet Christian’s friend Vane and his sister, Lillian. There is also a mystery involving Lillian. The narrator was easy to listen to and used different voices for the characters, bringing the action to life. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I look forward to the next in the series. I was given copy and I have voluntarily and honestly reviewed it.
