Oh my goodness! This heroine! Such a delightful story on so many levels — the heroine and her ineptness at most domestic chores aside, the children, the aunt and uncle, the town, the cow in the drawing-room, and Elmer the chicken! It’s a wonderful cast of characters, and I loved how the author gave the heroine tremendous value without immediately adding to her skillset. In fact, the poor character had to continuously admit she was horrid at yet one more thing. The storyline was good and the hero appropriately tough and romantic. I loved it!
DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS
Miss Isadora Delafield may be an heiress, but her life is far from carefree. When her mother begins pressuring her to marry an elderly and uncouth duke, she escapes from the high society world she’s always known and finds herself an unlikely candidate for a housekeeper position in rural Pennsylvania.
Mr. Ian MacKenzie is known for his savvy business sense and has built his reputation and fortune completely through traditional hard work. But when his adopted parents are in need of a new housekeeper and Isadora is thrown into his path, he’s unexpectedly charmed by her unconventional manner.
Neither Isadora nor Ian expected to find the other so intriguing, but when a chain of mysterious incidents on the farm point to a larger threat, they’ll have to set aside everything they thought they wanted for a chance at happy-ever-after.
