Thanks for stopping by! I’m thrilled to be sharing my review for The Cinderella Heiress by Janice Preston today. With a big thank you to the author for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
She’s inherited a fortune
But will she realise her true worth?
Claiming her inheritance in London will help Beatrice Fothergill escape her bullying, belittling half-brother. When her carriage overturns, dashing Waterloo soldier, Jack Kingswood, comes to her aid – setting her pulse racing! In return, believing her new fortune can help the injured veteran rebuild his life, Beatrice proposes a convenient marriage. But is this all she can offer – or dare Beatrice believe she’s worthy of more…?
In The Cinderella Heiress we meet Beatrice who gets a shock when she learns that she has just inherited a fortune. Beatrice is stunned by this news but it is also the answer to her prayers as she can finally escape her bullying brother. What follows is a wonderful story filled with romance and a little bit of drama.
The Cinderella Heiress is book two in the Lady Tregowan’s Will series. It does however easily read as a standalone so you could definitely pick this book up with no problems. I will say that it’s well worth starting with the first book because it’s such a strong start to a brilliant series. So why not pick up book one and then you can meet Leah and Dolph!
For me there was a little bit of everything to entertain from wicked and scheming relatives to a romance that made me smile. That brings me nicely to the main characters, Jack and Beatrice. What can I say about this charming pair? For starters I loved the connection between Jack and Beatrice. Janice Preston built their chemistry beautifully. I couldn’t help but smile at all of their interactions. Both Beatrice and Jack have troubled pasts which helped to give them an understanding of each other’s personalities. This definitely made them the perfect pair. They really are kindred spirits and I was willing them to be together!
The pacing for The Cinderella Heiress is spot on and I raced through the story eager to see how it would all play out. If I could narrow it down and pick a few words to describe this book it would be… charming, gorgeous and just like a fairytale! The Cinderella Heiress is another sparkling read from Janice Preston. I can’t wait for book three!
