The Rise of Miss Notley by Rachael Anderson
When Miss Coralynn Notley’s father barters her off to the first titled gentleman to come along, she realizes she must flee her home or be forced to wed a despicable man. Driven by desperation, she applies for the position of housekeeper at Tanglewood Manor, the home of the handsome Mr. Jonathan Ludlow.
The moment Jonathan sees Miss Notley, he is intrigued. She is far too young and inexperienced, yet there is something about her that that inspires a certain hope within him. Does he dare offer her the position of housekeeper or will doing so result in catastrophe?
This was such a great book! It was fun seeing the characters from The Fall of Lord Drayson make appearances in this book, but you don't have to have read the first book to be able to appreciate this one. The characters and setting were the perfect escape for me. I was intrigued by the glimpse into a housekeeper's life at a manor. The romance was sweet, and wonderful, and fulfilling. And I liked that the main character dealt with her problems in a positive, unexpected way. Another great read by Rachael Anderson!
