I absolutely love Eliza and Arthur's story; the characters were very entertaining, especially the narrative between Duncan and Arthur. Would recommend this book to anyone but I did find it a little confusing, mainly at the beginning when the story was repeated from Arthur's viewpoint and Eliza's after the carriage accident. It was distracting. But my major beef and no one else has mentioned it but I could not get the extended version up on my kindle. Why do authors have to make it hard to get that extra bit. After trying for 20+ mins I've given up. I'm not sure whose fault it is but I cringe when I'm offered an extended version as I'm often left wondering what happened next.
This book is a mix of romance and murder mystery which makes it extra enjoyable and keeps you guessing till the end. Eliza Bolten was traumatised when she was a child, after witnessing the murder of her parents. Now the eldest adopted daughter of John and Helen Cole, she enjoys her new family and looking after her many younger siblings, but wishes for something more. When an opportunity to be a governess for Arthur Huntly, the Duke of Rosenhill presents itself, she grasps it, not knowing the dark history their families share.
This book is a very enjoyable read from start to finish. The story is intriguing and entertaining and well written. The characters are endearing and well developed, and the plot keeps the reader's attention and interest. Five stars for this wonderful story.
Entertaining Regency Romance! Orphaned at a young age, Eliza is taken in by neighbours. When she is older, she is determined to help the less fortunate people in her village.

They become friends, when she takes on the role of governess to his brother and sister. When Arthur’s life is threatened, they must work together to find the killer before he succeeds. I really enjoyed this story. I received an ARC copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
