Goodreads Summary

After a season in London, Charlotte Lyons is still regrettably unattached. With her family’s finances in peril, she is sent away with her sister to a bleak coastal town where she is expected to pursue a wealthy earl. Beautiful and talented, how could she possibly fail? But when her heart is captured by someone entirely unexpected, Charlotte finds herself caught up in a web of lies and intrigue. Between hardship and sorrow, she finds more than she bargained for, forced to choose between the life she once wanted and a new love she never imagined. 

My Review

This book was a surprise.  I was very concerned at first, my first reactions to Charlotte were of a spoiled, mean, heartless girl, but I was curious as to how the author was going to make me like her. Ashtyn pulled it off, and she did it very well.  I loved this book.  The setting and characters especially were outstanding.  Even the horrible mother.  Very well written.  I absolutely loved how Charlotte was able to learn to love and to see how she hurt people and to learn from it.  I loved her improved relationship with Clara.  I enjoyed watching her learn to laugh and to learn to let others in.  James was a joy.  He was outstanding.  I loved his character and his kindness.  I laughed, I cried (especially during a certain scene I can't talk about, it will give too much away), I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  This is the first book I have read of Ashtyn's, and I will quickly be changing that.  Very, very well done.  

5 out of 5 stars.  I can't wait to get my hands on more from this author.
