An Uncommon Courtship Review


About the Book

When her mother's ill-conceived marriage trap goes awry, Lady Adelaide Bell unwittingly finds herself bound to a stranger who ignores her. Lord Trent Hawthorne, who had grand plans to marry for love, is even less pleased with the match. Can they set aside their first impressions before any chance of love is lost? (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I have so many mixed feelings after reading this book. I LOVED the first two books in the series and the novella. I also think if you do read these books you should read them in order somewhat for many things to all make sense. Now as for this book, I did enjoy the overall story line. I think Kristi Ann Hunter is a talented author. But, I could not connect with the characters at all. I tried to love this book but I just couldn't. While in any marriage of convenience there is sure to be awkward moments, but this book was so drawn out with the awkward moments and the blinking. Many things started to grate on my nerves just because I felt like nothing ever changed or moved forward or much character development. Yes, there are some funny parts and some really very good parts but overall this book was too choppy and slightly irritating for me to read. Also, as others have mentioned there are some private things discussed that while are not explicit made me go..hmmm, I'm not sure I really wanted to know that. I think for younger girls it might be confusing and honestly scary if they are unaware of what could go on after marriage.
All that being said I an very excited about her next novel about
Griffith! The previous books are also wonderful so start there!

Three stars and a half stars. 

"I received this book from Bethany House for free. All opinions are my own."
