It’s Friday! After returning from CFRR and giving myself one extra day off to recover, my work week was blessedly short. It was such a joy to meet so many reader and author friends (some again, some for the first time). Seeing all of the posts on FB and Instagram, I realize I missed meeting a few of you too!
This week I’m sharing the first line from the final book in Jennifer Delamere’s London Beginnings series. It’s the youngest sister’s turn to find her place and discover love.
About the Book
Cara Bernay has never fit in. At loose ends in 1881 London after a near tragedy costs her a job, she befriends a rising young artist. With his help, she begins planning a new life and developing her own artistic talent. But soon Cara finds herself at odds with the artist’s brother—a handsome but serious-minded earl who wants to force his brother back to a “respectable” life.
Henry Burke, the Earl of Morestowe, feels the weight of growing financial burdens. His profligate and emotionally unstable brother is making matters worse, and Henry needs him back home. Despite misgivings about Cara’s mysterious background, Henry sees she’s a positive influence on his brother and on Henry’s unruly young ward, and he strikes a deal with her to return with them to their estate.
But the family has their own secrets, and when Cara, drawn ever closer to Henry, stumbles onto the truth, she must choose between following her heart and pursuing a bold plan that could bring disaster.
