The Vicar's Daughter

The Vicar's Daughter: A Proper Romance
By Josi S. Kilpack
Shadow Mountain, 2017, 315 pgs. Romance, Historical Fiction

Cassie is the youngest of six sisters. Her parents have made a rule that she can't be out in society until her older sister makes a match. The problem is that Lenora in in her third season and is so painfully shy that she shows no signs of even being able to talk to a man. When Lenora shows a slight interest in Evan Glenside, who recently became heir of a nearby estate, Cassie decides to take matters into her own hands. She begins to write letters to Mr. Glenside in Lenora's name. Her good intentions become complicated when she finds herself starting to fall in love with Evan. It becomes even worse when he starts to court Lenora, thinking she is the one whose personality he admires from the letters.

I wasn't sure how this book was going to turn out. Cassie, Evan and Lenora were all such great characters and part way through the book I realized that this couldn't turn out well for everyone involved. I liked that this book was a little messy and very realistic about what happened once all the secrets were revealed. Too many romance books wrap things up too nicely. This book still had a very satisfying ending and I liked how it got there. This is another great Proper Romance for those looking for a good, clean romantic story.
