  2. Hi Mary Ann,

    This sounds like a nice cozy read for a cold winter's day.

    I see that this is the author's debut novel and that she is an English ex-pat, now living in Canada, so I shall be reading this one with interest when I can get my hands on a copy.

    I love the cover graphics on this one too.

    I hope that you enjoy the book and that you have a good week

  10. The House on Becket Lane is an engaging story, which is written like a Charlotte Bronte novel. It is about a young lady who runs out into a street to save a child from harm and finds herself saved also. Lord Lonsdale finds himself in love with Caroline, even though they have just met. Caroline's stepfather is an unsavory character who does not treat Caroline very well. Once Lord Lonsdale finds where she lives and is made to leave by the stepfather, an argument ensues with Caroline being beaten. Lord Lonsdale is called away to tend to matters pertaining to his brother so he does not know Carolines situation. Once he is apprised of it he goes to her rescue and hides her away and sees that she is safe from her stepfather. Caroline has a secret of her own regarding the death of her mother and sister and thinks that her stepfather had something to do with the deaths. This is a story of love and romance with a bit of mystery thrown in. A fast and enjoyable read.
