Lady Ella Myerston can always find a reason to smile–even if it’s just in hope that tomorrow will be better than today. All her life everyone has tried to protect her from the realities of the world, but Ella knows very well the danger that has haunted her brother and their friend, and she won’t wait for it to strike again. She intends to take action . . . and if that happens to involve an adventurous trip to the Cotswolds, then so much the better.
Lord Cayton has already broken two hearts, including that of his first wife, who died before he could convince himself to love her. Now he’s determined to live a better life. But that proves complicated when old friends arrive on the scene and try to threaten him into a life of crime. He does his best to remove the intriguing Lady Ella from danger, but the stubborn girl won’t budge. How else can he redeem himself, though, but by saving her–and his daughter–from those dangerous people who seem ready to destroy them all?
This is the third installment in Roseanna White’s Ladies of the Manor series. I was interested in reading this book and was excited to get it in mail. As I started reading this book, I was intrigued with the plot, but unfortunately, I became bored with the story. I do not know if there was too much detail but the book seemed to drag on, which left me tired and uninterested. I did not like that Ella was treated like she was a small child throughout the book even though she was old enough to have suitors.
The one aspect I did enjoy was that Cayton was an artist and he was not willing to admit it. And that Ella was able to decipher acutely who the artist was the moment she saw the painting of his daughter.
Whoever creates White’s book covers does a good job. At the present moment, I have not seen a cover that I have not liked.

This review is written in my own words and is my honest opinion.
