Miss Adeline's Match by Joanna Barker, Blog Tour
Miss Adeline Hayes is the perfect lady's companion: pleasant, conversational, and unceasingly proper. But when her closest friend, Charity Edgeworth, breaks off her arranged marriage without explanation, even Adeline's superior skills are put to the test. Charity's father banishes the two young women to the country, sending Adeline with a charge to find Charity a husband or suffer dire consequences.
As Adeline takes on the role of reluctant matchmaker, she discovers more than one obstacle in her path. Not only does Charity prefer escaping in books to socializing, but Adeline soon finds her own attentions distracted by the standoffish—and irritatingly handsome—Mr. Evan Whitfield. Amidst an eventful foxhunt and the unexpected arrival of Charity's former betrothed, Adeline simply doesn't have time for a battle of wits with Evan. But the two are continually drawn together until Adeline begins to question her tightly guarded convictions about love and marriage.
However, when secrets are revealed and truths made known, Adeline must face her most fearsome obstacle yet: herself.
Right off the bat I was pulled right into Adeline's life and her story. From her ailing father, to her friendship with her best friend Charity. Her life was intriguing and she was everything that was prim and proper. She always knew what to say and do, so when she pops off defending her friend, I was quite shocked! Then Adeline and Charity are sent off to Charity's aunt's home with Adeline being told she had better find Charity a husband or the consequences would be disastrous! So Adeline is torn between doing what is right for her friend or what is right for herself. All while she meets Mr. Whitfield, who happens to be frustrating to her and intriguing at the same time. I felt like he was a little bit reminiscent of Mr. Darcy, which made me love it all the more. I got to a point where I could not believe what was actually happening and I couldn't tear myself away from the book....I had to finish!! I highly recommend Miss Adeline's Match to anyone who is a fan of regency romance novels!
