Miss Leslie's Secret..850.jpg

Don’t Miss Reading Jennifer Moore’s Newest 5-Star Historical Fiction!

 

Miss Leslie’s Secret is a heartfelt historical fiction romance that takes place in the Highlands during the 1800s.
When Sergeant Conall Stewart returned home after the war, he was devastated. His hometown was in ruins, and his family was missing. Conall rented a place temporarily, in Dunaid until he could locate his parents and sister. But, the town of Dunaid began to grow on him, especially, after he met Aileen Leslie and her son Jamie. Conell’s relationship with the two, however, had a rocky start. Cornell was furious and confronted Aileen when he found Jamie wandering around his library, supposedly looking for a cat. That lie was exposed, much to Aileen’s dismay when she came upon Conell’s war medal in Jamie’s pants.

Conell took Jamie under his wing and was surprised when he found himself developing a strong bond with the boy. Jamie idolized the Sergeant, and although Aileen was happy to have a positive male role model for Jamie, she was ashamed of how jealous she became of their relationship. But, Conell Stewart was an easy man to like and trust. Aileen, even found herself falling under the Sergeant’s spell. She wanted to confide in the man and confess her secret to him. But, Aileen could never find the right time or words to tell him. Her indecision cost her. Aileen’s silence had not only broken hearts but also put her son in danger.

Miss Leslie’s Secret is a superbly written story. She paints a stunning picture of Scotland’s scenery and history, using authentic details, customs, and dialect. I felt as if I was transported back in time to the beautiful Scottish Highlands.

Thank you, Covenant Communications and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I Loved it!

Miss Whitaker Opens Her Heart by Jennifer Moore

Don’t Miss Jennifer Moore’s Newest Release; Miss Whitaker Opens Her Heart!

It’s Superbly Written, Thought-Provoking and Touching.-I loved it!

I absolutely loved Jennifer Moore’s newest release; Miss Whitaker Opens Her Heart. I was quickly swept up into the story and couldn’t put it down until I read the last page.

It was 1814, and Eleven-year-old Sarah Whitaker, was anxious to reach Australia. She couldn’t wait to see her papa again. Unlike, her Aunt; she didn’t mind the open seas. Sarah loved everything about the ship. Captain Thackery even allowed her to work alongside his crew. But, Sarah’s happiness would come to an abrupt halt, as soon as she reached the shores of Australia. Ten years later, though, Sarah was still in Australia. She loved managing her father’s sheep farm even though it came with many challenges, betrayals, and setbacks. Her latest betrayal came from Daniel Burton, her new neighbor, he not only took the land that she tried to buy, he stole her best foreman as well.

Daniel Burton had been sentenced to death, but instead of hanging he was shipped to Australia. He received a full pardon for his crimes from the governor of the penal colonies. The Duke of Southhampton had paid his way. And, although, Daniel was ashamed of his past behavior, he was grateful for his new start in Australia. One of the best things about his new life, was his neighbor, Sarah Whitaker. She was beautiful and fascinating, and Daniel was determined to make up for their rocky start. Although her farm was filled with working convicts, she didn’t trust any of them. Sarah had been hurt and betrayed too many times to let her guard down. Daniel didn’t know how to tell Sarah about his past. He was hoping that he could just keep it a secret. But, Daniel knew that secrets never stayed hidden for long. And, unfortunately, he was right.

Jennifer Moore has become one of my favorite authors. Her novels are superbly written, thought-provoking, and heartfelt. I highly recommend reading Miss Whitaker Open’s Her Heart.

Thank you, Covenant Communications and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

A Place For Miss Snow by Jennifer Moore

a-place-for-miss-snow

 

New Release From Jennifer Moore

Don’t Miss it!

A Place For Miss Snow is a sweet historical regency romance.

Diana Snow was a British orphan. She never knew what it was like to have a family or even a close friend. To keep herself from being hurt, Diana hid her feelings from everyone. However, after only a chance meeting with Alex Metaxas, a man whom she felt an immediate connection to, she did something foolish. Diana knew that it was unwise to follow a man, especially, in the dark, but she did so anyway. Diana told herself that she was only returning his gloves, but she knew that was just an excuse. Diana had no idea, though, that following Alex that night would lead to her kidnapping.

As far as kidnappings go, Diana considered herself lucky. She was brought to Greece and placed with a family who needed her assistance. They treated her with kindness and never made her feel as if she was a servant. Although Diana tried not to become close, she found herself falling in love with the children and the mother who she cared for. For the first time in her life, Diana felt actually happy, needed and part of a family unit. Alex became a regular visitor, and as much as she tried not to lose her heart to him, she knew that she already had.

I loved that the setting for this novel was in Greece. I found it fascinating to learn about what it was like to live there during the Regency period. I had no idea of the horrid hardships that the Greeks were made to endure under the Turks rule. A Place For Miss Snow is an enjoyable well-written historical fiction romance. I loved it.

Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley, for my advance review copy of this book.

*Lady Helen Finds Her Song*by Jennifer Moore*5-Stars

Lady Helen Finds Her Song

Lady Helen Finds Her Song is one of the best Regency novels that I’ve read in a long time. I found the story, fascinating, heart-warming, and superbly written.

Twenty-year-old Lady Helen did not concern herself about leaving the comforts of her London home. She was too mesmerized and elated about exploring a new land and was thrilled to be traveling the seas to India with her mother and step-father, Brigadier-General Jim Stackhouse.

Lady Helen was a reserved and kind-hearted woman who was much prettier than she thought she was. She would often chastise herself for her inability to feel comfortable around men, especially a swoon-worthy man like, Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft.

Captain Michael Rhodes had convinced himself that Lady Helen was beyond his reach. He was ten years her senior and half the man that he used to be. But, that didn’t stop him from thinking and worrying about her constantly. Lady Helen loved when the Captain would teach her about India, and the Captain treasured every moment that he got to spend in her presence.

One evening when Lady Helen was trapped and petrified in a jungle, she felt strong arms lift her onto a horse. She knew without looking at him, who it was. She buried herself into the chest of her hero. The man who always seemed to be there for her. The man she loved.

Jennifer Moore transports her readers into the world of her characters, with her engaging and razor sharp writing. This book is not just a romance; it’s an adventure with well-developed characters, realistic dialogue and a compelling plot. I was completely engrossed in this riveting novel, from the very first page and stayed up half the night to finish it. I highly recommend giving Lady Helen Finds Her Song, a read.

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
