Blog Tour: The Belle of Belgrave Square Mini Book Review by Sheaf & Ink
Engrossing, The Belle of Belgrave is an all-consuming don’t-stop-turning-pages story that will enrapt readers from page one. Fans of Mimi Matthews’s first book , The Siren of Sussex, will thoroughly enjoy her second installment. Like a master weaver, Matthews’s The Belle of Belgrave Square has threads of mythology and fairytale in her story, creating this intricate balance between those legends and her own. What’s most rewarding is how Matthews continues to create dynamic and complex characters who dance off the page like those on the silver screen.
The Belle of Belgrave Square is a story about what it means to find pleasure, to find family, to find something that is completely and utterly yours.
I fell in love with this story and I hope you will too.
Happy Reading ~ Cece

The Belle of Belgrave Square Blog Tour
A London heiress rides out to the wilds of the English countryside to honor a marriage of convenience with a mysterious and reclusive stranger.
Tall, dark, and dour, the notorious Captain Jasper Blunt was once hailed a military hero, but tales abound of his bastard children and his haunted estate in Yorkshire. What he requires now is a rich wife to ornament his isolated ruin, and he has set his sights on the enchanting Julia Wychwood.
For Julia, an incurable romantic cursed with a crippling social anxiety, navigating a London ballroom is absolute torture. The only time Julia feels any degree of confidence is when she’s on her horse. Unfortunately, a young lady can’t spend the whole of her life in the saddle, so Julia makes an impetuous decision to take her future by the reins—she proposes to Captain Blunt.
In exchange for her dowry and her hand, Jasper must promise to grant her freedom to do as she pleases. To ride—and to read—as much as she likes without masculine interference. He readily agrees to her conditions, with one provision of his own: Julia is forbidden from going into the tower rooms of his estate and snooping around in his affairs. But the more she learns of the beastly former hero, the more intrigued she becomes….
