Miss Harriet Hancock enjoys playing the role of eccentric heiress,
using her wealth and influence to cleverly and anonymously better the
lives of those in Newmarket. Though she keeps people at a distance to
protect a years-old secret, when her friend pleads for help on a
personal project, Harriet can't resist.
Stable hand Jonas Fitzroy would do anything for his twin sister, even if it means seeking out the woman whose meddling ways have made him wary and suspicious. The last thing he expects is for Miss Hancock to request his help in writing a book. Intent on revealing her underlying plan, Jonas agrees.
As they work together, an unexpected friendship forms. But when things for once don't go according to Harriet's plan, she's left wondering if good intentions might not be enough. Is there a way to mend the broken pieces of her life? And will Jonas give her another chance at his heart?
About The Author
This read took a bit for me to get into it, but I kept going and glad I did!
I loved the banter that went on between the two main characters, Harriett wants to help everyone, she feels that is her gift! Now Jonas, he wants to be left alone, he likes standing by the walls out of the way. We are along for the interaction between these two, and I found myself laughing out loud!
Can these two unlikely people forge any kind of a relationship? You will wonder as you turn the pages, but you have to keep turning for answers!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
