This is a great recency romance with a little scandal thrown in.
Dorothy Mack has written this beautifully. Charming characters and such vivid descriptions you can picture them! I adore Carina and Edward, they were my favourite characters.
This is the second of Dorothy Mack’s I’ve read now and wasn’t disappointed.
Thank you to NetGalley and Sapere Books for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my review.
