Synopsis from Goodreads: When the widowed Lord Torrington agreed to spy for the crown, he never planned to impersonate a highwayman, let alone rob the wrong carriage. Stranded on the road with an unconscious young woman, he is forced to propose marriage to protect his identity, as well as his dangerous mission.Trapped by not only the duty to her country but her limited options, Miss Elizabeth Cantrell and her illegitimate son are whisked away to Middlecrest Abbey by none other than the elder brother of her son’s absent father. She is met by Torrington’s beautiful grown daughters, a vicious murderer, and an urgent hunt for the missing intelligence that could turn the war with France. Afraid of what Lord Torrington might do if he learns of her son’s true identity, Elizabeth must remain one step ahead of her fragile heart, her uncertain future, and the relentless mystery person bent on her new family’s ruin.
My Review: While this is not the type of book I would normally grab I ended up really enjoying it! Elizabeth is such a great character and I liked her immediately. The rest of the characters were good too but she was my favorite. I felt that this was very well written and flowed nicely. The english countryside setting was well done and a nice escape from being stuck at home! I also really enjoyed the mystery aspect of the story and felt that it was really well done! If you like historical fiction, mysteries and romance this is a great read for you!
