The Maid of Fairbourne Hall

Thanks to LitFuse Publicity for providing this book in exchange for my honest review.

I love books set in the 18th and 19th century--especially in England. I find that whole era extremely fascinating. Don't you? I was so excited to get and read this book as a result. I was not disappointed. Since picking up this book, I was not able to set it down. It was so fun to read a new and different story line set in this era. This is not the same old story line. I especially enjoyed the glimpse into the lives of servants during this era. It was quite enthralling. I would love to see this book turned into a series. I felt the ending left more stories waiting to be told. I love it when I am left missing a book and wanting more rather than wishing it had ended sooner. 
About the book:
To escape a scheme to marry her off to a dishonorable man, Margaret Macy flees London disguised as a housemaid. If she can remain unwed until her next birthday, she will receive an inheritance, and with it, sweet independence. But she never planned on actually working as a servant. And certainly not in the home of Nathaniel and Lewis Upchurch--both former suitors.

As she fumbles through the first real work of her life, Margaret struggles to keep her identity secret when suspicions arise and prying eyes visit Fairbourne Hall. Can she avoid a trap meant to force her from hiding?


About Julie:

She has won the Christy Award: Historical Romance for The Silent Governess (2010) and The Girl in the Gatehouse (2011) which also won the 2010 Midwest Book Award for Genre Fiction.
