To avoid being sent across an ocean, Grace switches places with her sister. The only man aware of their deception? A dear friend, and her secret love.

Grace Everly has no desire to set sail for the Caribbean, unlike her adventurous twin sister, Hope. Thanks to her sister’s irresponsible behavior and subsequent banning from the journey, Grace’s father decides to send her in Hope’s place. Desperate to remain where things are familiar, Grace proposes an unthinkable plan: that she and sister switch places. They only have to keep up the act long enough for Hope to board a ship in London. When the man who has stolen Grace’s heart learns of their secret, things get more complicated.

Jacob Barnes, soon to be ordained a vicar, has known Grace and Hope his whole life. Though close to both sisters, he’s dreamed of courting Hope for months. When he realizes his friends have switched places, putting the woman he admires out of his reach, he agrees to help with the subterfuge despite his bruised heart. As he watches Grace stumble in her acting abilities, attempting to change who she is, he realizes how much she means to him. But how does he tell her, without risking their friendship?

The deception puts their relationship to the test. As Grace hides her heart and her identity, Jacob examines his feelings, and no one in their community will be happy when the truth is discovered.


A week after reading Discovering Grace, I find myself randomly thinking about scenes. I can remember many things so vividly which is a testament to Sally Britton’s incredible writing. Her characters are unique and have so much depth, the story-lines are always interesting, and her writing style is outstanding.

Grace had always lived in the background of her twin sister.  She finally was not only able to stand on her own but also realize that she is good enough just as she is.  Jacob had grown up with Grace and Hope and thought he knew everything about them.  He was very clearly wrong. I loved Grace Everly and Jacob Barnes together.

This book is the second in the Inglewood series after Rescuing Lord Inglewood. It can be read on its own, though the previous book is excellent, and I suggest reading it as well.

I am very much looking forward to Saving Miss Everly.

All he wants is someone he can trust. All she wants is to belong. But when compromising circumstances force them together, do they have a chance at finding love?

Silas Riley, Earl of Inglewood, is known among his peers in Parliament as the man made of stone. As a wealthy peer, there are few he trusts with his friendship. He guards his heart and his honor with vigilance, and when an accident nearly takes his life, he’s faced with a situation which threatens his standing in society.

Growing up in the shadow of her older brother, Esther Fox’s acceptance in his circle has been indifferent at best. So when she ends up in a compromising situation as she saves the life of her brother’s dearest friend, the Earl of Inglewood, she is forced to marry him to save her own reputation. Once again, she finds herself accepted only because of the situation, and not because she is truly wanted.

Neither are prepared for a loss which further complicates their new relationship. With such a difficult beginning, can they ever hope to understand one another, let alone find love?


This is one of those can’t put down – read in one day – kind of books!

Esther was the unwanted little sister who always tried to follow her brother and his friends around. After gossip surrounding her reputation, she is forced to marry one of those friends but still feels like the unwanted little sister.

Silas is the stone faced Earl who tries to hide his emotions and only cares about doing his duty.  He does a lot of things because he feels he is protecting someone, yet he never explains his reasons. As an Earl, he is also used to giving commands and expects to be obeyed.

Silas and Esther both make a lot of mistakes along the way, and they don’t do a great job of communicating with each other. They both have very real feelings and emotions, and I enjoyed seeing them learn more about each other.

There were some predicable things in the book which I will not spoil, but it was still a great book.

I am fairly new to the author Sally Britton. I found that I really liked her complex characters and her style of writing. I look forward to reading more from her.

Grace Everly’s story is next. Discovering Grace comes out in August, and I already have it on preorder. 🙂
