What I'm Reading Wednesday {If the Slipper Fits}

Hey y'all,

I got back into a historical fiction/romance kick a few weeks ago. I recently stumbled upon Olivia Drake when I was aimlessly wandering the aisles of books at the library and saw her Cinderella Sisterhood Series. I snatched up the first book, If the Slipper Fits, and finished reading it last week.

If The Slipper Fits

The Description:

Will she have her happily ever after?
Is This Love Real?
Raised in a girls’ school, Annabelle Quinn longs for the world outside the walls of the academy. When she’s hired as the governess to an orphaned duke, Annabelle never expects the child’s breathtakingly handsome guardian to capture her imagination—or her heart.
Or Are They Living In a Fairytale?
Falling for his young nephew’s governess is an irksome complication in Lord Simon Westbury’s orderly life, but Annabelle’s quiet beauty and wry intellect are too much to resist. Meanwhile, a mysterious danger looms over the remote Cornwall estate. Will their newfound desire stand the test of time? Or are some happy endings just too good to come true?

My Opinion:

I liked the premise of the book and the story between Annabelle and Simon was sweet. I was pleasantly surprised with the mysterious element and mystery involving the estate and how that mystery was connected to the nobility. If you are a fan of Victoria Alexander or Elizabeth Boyle's historical fiction I think you would enjoy this book. I am heading to the library this afternoon to pick up the next book in the series, Stroke of Midnight., which is connected based on the red slippers in the first book.
