This book was just meh I didn t feel a real connection between the MC s Henrietta was annoying and bumbling I didn t think her character was accurate for the time period since she never really acted with propriety There were problems with plot continuity and it dragged I skimmed It was a nice book for uiet night where you need breakout from your schedule and just njoy a good romance with hot coffee I liked the characters and how they were so good with ach other they complimented ach other like where the heroine was so honest and forthcoming with her optimistic and nthusiastic approach for life whereas the Hero was intelligent realistic and had a bit sarcastic approachI also was intelligent realistic and had a bit sarcastic approachI also how
