My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book has been on my kindle for ages so when I got an ARC of Mimi Mathew’s latest John Eyre, I picked this up for some light reading. The Viscount and Vicar’s daughter has a charming quality that captivates the reader. The romance is clean without a whole lot of lust and desire muddling things about. I do love reading that too but sometimes romances with beautiful moments between the leads do the trick. Tristan just needed someone to believe in him. As everyone around him including his father thinks that Tristan is a good-for-nothing rake, his only solace is Valentine whose sweetness and practicality attract him like no other. The relationship develops at a believable pace and the dialogues between them were, I should once again say sweet!
I loved Mimi Mathew’s writing, there’s a distinctive flavor to the plotline that seems similar to many others but the characters are lovable and alluring. Well, I was in a mood for all that sugar love so was additionally glad for having read this.
Looking forward to reading other books by Mimi Mathews!

A MATCH MADE IN SCANDAL
