Soldier Victor Bramwell, the newly minted Earl of Rycliff, is trying to get a new command after being badly injured during battle. His travels take him and his companions to Spindle Cove. Sir Lewis Finch, a friend of Bram's father, promises to help Bram get a command if he can put together a militia for Spindle Cove. The only problem is Spindle Cove is predominately inhabited by women. Susanna Finch uses the town as a refuge for women who just don't fit in with society. Some are spinsters, some are women in troubled marriages, and others just don't fit into society's mold. Susanna sees the militia as and end to her serene life. With the influx of men, especially Bram, Spindle Cove will never be the same.
The first book in the Spindle Cove series is a fun story with interesting characters. Bram wants nothing more than to get back into the army, but his injury is preventing it. Susanna wants to protect her community from the influence of men, and is worried that by having a militia, everything will change. I liked the romance and the humor in this book. The supporting characters were also fun. Can't wait for the next book in the series. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
I really, really liked this one. I enjoyed both Susannah and Bram. I thought both characters both complimented each other well. I think all the secondary characters were well written as well and look forward to future books in this series.
Enjoyable romance story that makes you laugh, cry, and fall head over heels in love. Could not put it down once I started. Bram and Susanna's makes a wonderful couple and leaves you wanting more. This small town of Spindle Cove is perfect safe haven for any young girl or women and I would have loved to vist this place. Can't wait to hear more but Bram's cousin Colin and Minerva in the upcoming book.
