A Reluctant Courtship Book Review

Picture Credit

 About the Book
Honore Bainbridge has been courted by two men, one of whom turned out to be a traitor, the other a murderer. Banished to her family's country estate, where she will hopefully stay out of trouble, she finally meets the man she is sure is exactly right for her: Lord Ashmoor. Tall, dark, and handsome--what more could a girl ask for?

But he too is under suspicion because of his American upbringing and accusations that he has helped French prisoners escape from Dartmoor Prison. If he's to keep out of a British prison himself and secure his place in British society, Lord Ashmoor needs a wife beyond reproach--something the vexingly beautiful Honore certainly is not. Though they find themselves drawn to each other, family obligations may conspire to keep them apart forever.

For the sake of her heart, Honore determines to prove Ashmoor's innocence--even if doing so risks her own life.

 My Review
I have not read the first two books in The Daughters of Bainbridge House Series, but I read that they could be read alone. This I discovered to be true, as I could follow the story line and was not confused about the characters. 
I enjoy the "Downton Abbey" type feeling that this book portrays, as this time period is extremely popular it has hit the fiction book stands by storm. I have read many books during this time period and this one was very difficult for me to get into and enjoy. The story line was so slow for me and the main character irritated me to no end. I'm sure those who have read the first books will enjoy this book as it is the same setting, but unfortunately I just did not enjoy this read.
