A Return of Devotion Review


About the Book
Daphne Blakemoor was perfectly happy living in her own secluded world for twelve years. She had everything she needed—loved ones, a true home, and time to indulge her imagination. But when ownership of the estate where she works as a housekeeper passes on, and the new marquis has an undeniable connection to her past, everything she's come to rely upon is threatened.

William, Marquis of Chemsford's main goal in life is to be the exact opposite of his father. Starting a new life in the peace and quiet of the country sounds perfect until his housekeeper turns his life upside down.

They've spent their lives hiding from the past. Can they find the courage to face their deepest wounds and, perhaps, find a new path for the future together? (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I was eager to read Daphne's story after reading the first book in this series. While not necessary, I do recommend you start with book one to get a better idea of what is going on in this book. So this book starts off right about where I thought it would. I loved the characters, even the secondary ones are well written. The story line I struggled with just a bit. The first part of the book really drags on for quite awhile, not really much happens and it is just a waiting game. The last part of the book is what had more to it and sped things up a bit. I like the back story of Daphne and honestly I am really curious where the next book will take all of these lovely characters. I appreciate that Kristi tackles more difficult subjects in her fiction and I believe that is why I consider her books must reads.
Four stars.
