Miss Marianne Daventry is getting pretty sick of living in Bath, England with her aunt and grandmother and don't even mention her the older man who keeps trying to court her, Mr Whittles! She misses her twin sister, Cecily, and her father. Her dear mother died just over a year ago and ever since, her father has been in Paris by himself, and her sister has been in London having her season. Marianne had no desire to go to London, but would rather stay in her beloved countryside. Luckily for her, her sister Cecily is going to be staying with a friend at an estate called Edenbrooke and she's invited Marianne to meet her there and stay for awhile. It's just the escape Marianne has been looking for. Her grandmother grants her request to go, but with the stipulation that Marianne learn how to behave as a lady, or else her grandmother will bring her back to Bath and take away the inheritance she plans to leave her. But on the way to Edenbrooke, the carriage that Marianne and her maid are riding in is attacked by a highwayman, who wounds the carriage driver and leaves Marianne and her maid alone. Marianne must figure out how to get herself, her maid, the carriage driver and the carriage to safety. This book was AMAZING. It's a new brand of romance by Shadow Mountain, their calling it "A Proper Romance." It's completely clean, written in a fun style and the story was amazing. I love what Shadow Mountain says in their letter to the reader in the ARC copy: "It is romance at it's very best- and at it's cleanest, dear reader. So clear your schedule, take a long lunch, and put the kids down for a nap because you're in for a treat. Once you pick up Edenbrooke you won't want to put it down until you've finished. Yes, it really is that good!" I have to agree that it really is that good. I stayed up late to finish this one, even though I needed to get up early the next morning. I can't wait to read this one again and to read even more Proper Romance from Shadow Mountain and hopefully Julianne Donaldson!
