#BookReview + #Giveaways: The Cautious Maiden

28 Oct


The Cautious Maiden by Dawn Crandall

Purchase a copy: http://bit.ly/2eXBFYJ

Violet Hawthorne is beyond mortified when her brother Ezra turns their deceased parents’ New England country inn into a brothel to accommodate the nearby lumberjacks; but when Violet’s own reputation is compromised, the inn becomes the least of her worries. In an effort to salvage her good name, Violet is forced into an engagement with a taciturn acquaintance; Vance Everstone. As she prepares for a society wedding, Violet learns that her brother had staked her hand in marriage in a heated poker game with the unsavory Rowen Steele, and Ezra had lost. Now Rowen is determined to cash in on his IOU. With danger stalking her and a new fiance who hides both his emotion and his past, Violet must decide who to trust and who to leave behind.


My thoughts:

Dawn Crandall creates beautiful story worlds, and fans of the Everstone Chronicles are sure to love its latest installment! Vance Everstone plays quite the hero in this book, a complete transformation for the former scoundrel. From loathing him to loving him, I was delighted by his reformation! Intriguing and enchanting, Vance and Violet’s journey is teeming with drama and romance. The Cautious Maiden is an enthralling tale, and I loved every minute!

    Wow! I can only imagine the shock and mortification of having one’s home changed into house of ill repute! That is why I will have to read what happens!!! Plus, to have some to write that “I loved every minute” reading this book is an outstanding recommendation! I cannot wait to read this book! Thank you for letting all of us learn about it!

    I am so looking forward to this fourth book in the series. After acquiring the first book, I requested that our local library carry them, as well. It’s such a great series and deserves a big audience. tlhcoupon(at)hotmail(dot)com
