Alice Hubbard has gained a nickname after three attempted weddings, “bad luck bride”. She swears that she will never marry now, that is until she reunites with the only love of her life, Henderson Southwell. Alice Hubbard is the granddaughter of a duke. Henderson Southwell is a bastard, son of a single mother and an unknown father. Henderson left England for India, four years before, right after the death of Joseph Hubbard, his best friend and Alice’s older brother. Alice and Henderson secretly love each other, unbeknownst to each other. Alice is about to marry again to a “suitable ” fiance. She longs for love in the relationship but only knows that feeling with Henderson. This story revolves around love, wealth, position, and murder. I loved this book and found the author’s dialogue to be witty and entertaining. Her characters were multi-dimensional and likable. I usually don’t read this era of British romance but think that I have not only become a fan of the author, but also the genre. I highly recommend this book to all lovers of historical romance.
The Bad Luck Bride by Jane Goodger will be available June 13, 2017 by Kensington Books Corp. An egalley of this book was made available by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.
