Book synopsis of Return to Satterthwaite Court:
RETURN TO SATTERTHWAITE COURT by Mimi Matthews
Lieutenant Charles Heywood has had his fill of adventure. Battle-weary and disillusioned, he returns to England, resolved to settle down to a quiet, uneventful life on an estate of his own. But arranging to purchase the property he desires is more difficult than Charles ever imagined. The place is mired in secrets, some of which may prove deadly. If he’s going to unravel them, he’ll need the assistance of someone as daring as he is.
At only twenty, Lady Katherine Beresford has already earned a scandalous reputation. As skilled with pistols as she is on horseback, she’s never met an obstacle she can’t surmount—or a man she can’t win. That is, until she encounters the infuriatingly somber Lieutenant Heywood. But Kate refuses to be deterred by the raven-haired soldier’s strong, silent facade. After all, faint heart never won handsome gentleman.
From the wilds of rural Somersetshire to the glittering ballrooms of early-Victorian London, Charles and Kate embark on a cross-country quest to solve a decades’ old mystery. Will the greatest danger be to their hearts—or to their lives?
MY THOUGHTS: Return to Satterthwaite Court
I have a confession.
I haven’t read the first two books in this series.🙈
But, book friends you don’t need to! There might be a few spoilers, but this book feels like it can stand alone on its own two beautiful feet.
Now, as for Mimi’s third book in her Somerset Stories Series, friends, you will not be disappointed. The yearning, pining, banter, sunshine plus grumpy trope, and slow burn romance, is every ingredient we romance readers devour. There isn’t much on the spice, but that’s okay, this one is written more like a wholesome clean novel, though I am always for some extra spice peppered throughout.
Plus, our MC’s Lady Katherine, an obstinate headstrong no nonsense débutante who has her eyes set on Lieutenant Charles, broody, grumpy, and oh so enticing to look at (well in my imagination that is).
A delight, readers will adore this next historical romance by Mimi Matthews
Happy Reading ~ Cece
