A ruse can only last so long…
Tillie Sherbrooke was born a lady, but lost her place in society by her father’s folly. Quiet, resourceful, and loyal, she now makes the perfect lady’s maid for her mistress Sophia. When Sophia’s parents give her no choice but to travel across England to be matched with a mysterious young bachelor, Mr. Hill, she has no interest, especially since there are several other ladies vying for him. Who better to send in her place than Tillie? What gentleman would notice a maid, even one disguised as a lady? So when Sophia asks this favor of Tillie, or rather—threatens her into it, Tillie must rely on her past, the life of a proper lady, if she hopes to keep her position at Sedgwick Manor.
Disguised as her mistress, Tillie takes a coach across the country to a new place, one both unfamiliar and frightening. With so much at stake, she does all she can to stay quiet and invisible. But when she inadvertently catches Mr. Hill’s attention, she realizes she may have more to lose than her livelihood. She may very well lose her heart.
I loved this book so much. It was just what I needed to read right now.
Tillie Sherbrooke and Mr. Hill are one of my favorite couples. I loved them together. They had the best banter and the sweetest moments together.
A house party is always fun but this was a great take on one with it being a matchmaking party for Mr. Hill.
The end also had a few twists I liked that kept it from being predictable.
Read this book! It’s fun, and sweet, and so worth your time and money.
