Reluctant Courtship blog tour But Not a Reluctant Read!

This book review is for the novel "A Reluctant Courtship" by Laurie Alice Eakes.
It is the third book in the The Daughters of Bainbridge House series.

You know that a novel is good and a writer is great when they can make you really feel for the characters you are reading about. Laurie more than does this in her books and her writing is imaginative and phenomenal. I am such a fan of historical fiction like this, especially the ones that remind me of Jane Austen and this does a great job in this genre.

As I immersed myself in the emotional pool of Honore Bainbridges life, in her virtual exile in the country, I really felt for her. I found myself getting annoyed with her brother on her behalf and thinking how unjust the whole thing was and trying to figure out the mystery surrounding this storyline.
Like I said you know a good writer when... :)

I am hopeful there will be more books in this series because I love them!


Honore Bainbridge has two scandalous relationships in her past. Relationships that have tainted her in the eyes of "polite" society and the rest of her family has brushed her away to their county seat.

When Honore finds herself in a most precarious position she also finds herself rescued by the most unlikely of hero's and becomes in tangled in a mystery that might be more scandalous to her or his reputation than either of the other two.

I really love this series and I think you will too especially if you love historical fiction!
