Publisher's Summary

South Carolina, 1908:
Scullery maid Lucy Forman has been serving at Worthington House since the day she turned 16. Now, at 19, she is asked to take over the duties of gathering chicken eggs out by the stables. It doesn't take Lucy long to notice there's more to see at the chicken house than just chickens.
When stable boy James Parker notices the young redhead in place of Bossy Betty, he suddenly takes a deep interest in repairing loose boards down at the coop. Falling through the wall of the hen-house was not his intention, but when he sees the cute maiden on the other side, he can't help but fall for Lucy.
Downton Abbey fans who are intrigued by what goes on below the stairs, will love following the antics of Lucy and the fun, feisty kitchen maid, Lizzy. Who, but Lizzy, could talk Lucy into sneaking down a six-story fire escape to go to a dance?
Mischief and young love are in store....
Listeners will get to decide who really lives life to its fullest; the well-to-do Gentry, or those who serve them.

Loved This Sweet Historical Romance


Lucy is a maidservant in South Carolina, circa 1900. Her life is pretty dreary until she is assigned the task of collecting eggs from the chickens. Stableboy, James Parker hears a girl speaking kindly to the chickens, an obvious change from the boisterous, confrontational Betty.

The mutual attraction is instantaneous and Renée Riva takes us on a wonderful excursion, with all of the wholesome innocence enjoyed by so many. This was an absolute pleasure to listen to and I look forward to other books by this author.

Cait Frizzle is a great voice performer, perfect for this book.

Credit worthy? I would buy this book outright, as it is less than $5.

Thank you for taking the time to read my review. *I was provided the unique opportunity to receive an advance copy of this book to listen to in exchange for my unbiased review.

Sweet romance

This is book 2 in the series but I haven't read book 1 and that didn't seem to matter.

The book focuses on Lucy a scullery Maid and James a stable boy. The romance between them is sweet and builds slowly over the course of the book. The story includes and interesting glimpse into the life of the servants below the stairs and the work that went into keeping a house like this running. I really enjoyed listening to it.

The narrator did a good job, the character voices are believable and the delivery has a nice flow to it.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
