Shadow Mountain, 2015. 324 pgs. Romance
Amber Sterlington is the most popular girl of the London season. She could have her pick of any of the eligible young men but is having too much fun to settle down to a decision. She is selfish and mean spirited to the other women around her, especially her sister, but she justifies her actions as necessary in the effort to secure a good match. Soon, through no fault of her own, she finds herself exiled to a small country home with only one servant and little hope of returning to the the lifestyle she has always known. She discovers many important things about herself and her focus starts to shift to what is truly important. There may even be room for love again if she can overcome her own insecurities.
Josi Kilpack is best know for her culinary mysteries and this book is a big departure for her but I feel she did a very good job with this Regency romance. This novel is part of Shadow Mountains line of Proper Romances which means they are clean, feel good titles. Other books to fall into this category are Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson and Longing for Home by Sarah Eden.
