Review: The Rise of Miss Notley by Rachael Anderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

To escape an undesirable match, Miss Notley must give up her riches for rags.

When Miss Coralynn Notley’s father barters her off to the first titled gentleman to come along, she realizes she must flee her home or be forced to wed a despicable man. Driven by desperation, she applies for the position of housekeeper at Tanglewood Manor, the home of the handsome Mr. Jonathan Ludlow.

The moment Jonathan sees Miss Notley, he is intrigued. She is far too young and inexperienced, yet there is something about her that that inspires a certain hope within him. Does he dare offer her the position of housekeeper or will doing so result in catastrophe?

I love Rachel Anderson's books!   And I really enjoyed this Regency story about a determined young lady who escapes an undesirable match by fleeing her home and going into the workforce.  Her skills, however don't match her position as a housekeeper which makes for some funny situations.  Her employer, Mr. Johnathan Ludlow, is a bit of a curmudgeon to begin with but he can't help but fall under her spell.

Another fun read with a well rounded cast of characters that lend a fullness and warmth to the story.  This is a sweet clean romance that will keep you engaged from the first page!

A USA Today bestselling author of clean romance, Rachael Anderson is the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.
