Brighton, England 1820
Amelia Moore wants only one thing–to secure the future happiness of her younger sister, Clara. With their stepfather’s looming death, the two sisters will soon be on their own–without family, a home, or a penny to their names. When an invitation arrives to join a house party at Lakeshire Park, Amelia grasps at the chance. If she can encourage a match between Clara and their host, Sir Ronald, then at least her sister will be taken care of.
Little does she know that another guest, the arrogant and overconfident Mr. Peter Wood, is after the same goal for his own sister. Amelia and Peter begin a rivalry that Amelia has no choice but to win. But competing against Peter–and eventually playing by his rules–makes Amelia vulnerable to losing the only thing she has left to claim: her heart.
I am just the biggest fan of Regency romances! It is probably my favorite go-to genre when I want to just lose myself in a book. I am always a little timid about trying new authors, but I am so glad I did! I absolutely loved this book! It was witty, romantic, and had a captivating plot that kept me turning the pages. There were so many layers to the characters and their romance was slow building and absolutely swoon worthy. I loved the unique approach to a regency house party romance. I was hanging on every paged and it truly was delightful to read! I cannot wait to see more from this author.

While earning her degree in Early Childhood Education, she married her one true love and started a family.

She lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband and three children. Lakeshire Park is her debut novel.
