Book Reviews, Bookish thoughts, memes and more!

Happy release to this book! I love marriage of convenience/ arranged marriage tropes and seeing the couple get to know each other and the obstacles they need to overcome and boy howdy did these two have a lot to overcome!

Phineas has been a disappointment to his father in almost every way and while his father Lord Midlington believes he needs more practice with running an estate, now they’re pushing him to marry but he exerts some control in the decision to choose his own wife. Well – his man of business does. Phineas refused to even see the miniature portrait of her.

Katherine loves her little brother and her niece and nephews but would love to be a mother. Her older brother runs the family shipping company and she learns that he basically sold her off to a man for his title. Feeing like she got the short end of the stick, she isn’t happy. Especially when her intended doesn’t even bother to introduce himself until the wedding. No wedding breakfast, stiff introduction to her in-laws and going to her new home is a lot to deal with.

Luckily Phineas says he won’t push for intimacy until she’s ready. This is a clean book but he sure thought about it a lot…which I guess would be natural and realistic but with how frequently it was mentioned in a sweet romance I thought it odd. Maybe I’m the odd one 🤷🏻‍♀️ But Phineas is really clueless when it comes to treating and interacting with his wife. Half the time he just ups and leaves the room like WTF?! I completely understand Kitty’s hesitation. 😒
🥂
There were some sweet moments and Phineas redeems himself in the end. This is the last book in the Seasons of Change series with his a multi-author series. They can be read alone and this isn’t quite a Christmas story, just a few mentions of it. I received an advanced copy of the book from the author and these are my own opinions. Thank you @aladyinfrance
