AN HEIRESS AT HEART
This is wonderful love story with characters who are trying to keep promises they made even if it could land them in prison or get them killed. This is not your usual English stuffiness; there is something for everyone. The author’s diligent research of England and the traditions of the 1800s shines in her debut.
After five years in exile, Lizzie Poole returns to London, but she has assumed the identity of her dying friend, Ria Thornborough, a widow. Geoffrey Somerville is not certain this is Ria, his brother’s wife, but he will play along until he can prove she’s an imposter and make sure she is punished. Can Lizzie find the truth she seeks before her last chance at love slips through her fingers? (FOREVER, Nov., 432 pp., $5.99)
