Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson

Synopsis from Marianne Daventry will do anything to escape the boredom of Bath and the amorous attentions of an unwanted suitor. So when an invitation arrives from her twin sister, Cecily, to join her at a sprawling country estate, she jumps at the chance. Thinking she’ll be able to relax and enjoy her beloved English countryside while her sister snags the handsome heir of Edenbrooke, Marianne finds that even the best laid plans can go awry.From a terrifying run-in with a highwayman to a seemingly harmless flirtation, Marianne finds herself embroiled in an unexpected adventure filled with enough romance and intrigue to keep her mind racing. Will she be able to rein in her traitorous heart, or will a mysterious stranger sweep her off her feet? Fate had something other than a relaxing summer in mind when it sent Marianne to Edenbrooke.

Christina's Review: I really enjoyed reading this book. I did not want to put it down and just wanted to read and read until I was done! It has good characters and a good storyline. The leading female, Marianne, is a strong and determined woman. She is loyal to her family and is true to herself which I liked.

I wasn't bored. . . I don't read a lot of stories set in the regency period. There were some little twists and surprises that popped up throughout the book which kept things interesting. It was a good clean romance.
