A follow-up to Josi S. Kilpack's bestselling Proper Romance title The Vicar's Daughter.
Lenora Wilton has spent her life hiding behind the keys of her beloved pianoforte and the vibrancy of her younger sister, Cassie. But Lenora is ready for a change and travels to Bath to live with her Aunt Gwen and teach music at an all-girls’ boarding school. She is different in Bath—more comfortable with herself—and enjoys the freedom and independence of her new life there.
When Lenora meets Aiden Asher, she finds herself attracted to him, but her unexpected feelings become more complicated when she learns that Catherine—Lenora’s newest and most troublesome student in the school—is Mr. Asher’s niece. Catherine is a difficult student, and Lenora works hard to make progress with the girl.
When the chemistry between Lenora and Aiden increases, they share a passionate kiss by the River Avon, and Lenora feels it is the beginning of a new forever—until she learns that Aiden has withheld an important detail about his life that changes everything.
Lenora closes her heart to him, and Aiden, caught between his obligation and his heart, must do what he can to make amends. And Lenora, after years of hiding from everyone and everything, faces a decision only she can make.
I absolutely loved Lenora's story! I remembered her from Kilpack's previous book and I was delighted that she decided to write about Lenora. Lenora is not your typical main character. She is shy and quiet, she has anxiety and moments of panic...which made her more real and relatable to me as a reader. Catherine, her new student, was such a pain in the rear! I had no idea how she was going to handle her. Then Mr. Asher appears, the uncle who has taken in his niece Catherine, and Lenora is not sure how to feel about him. There are so many twists and turns in this story and at points I felt like there was no possible way the ending could turn out happy for anyone! Kilpack kept me reading until the very last word; I could not put the book down, I tried! Hey, who needs sleep anyway? You will love Miss Wilton's Waltz, I highly recommend Lenora's story!
