Falling in love with her sister’s suitor had never been part of her plan.
After losing her parents, Elizabeth Watts and her two sisters are taken under the care of their great-aunt, who has promised them her estate upon her death. From a young age, however, Elizabeth has learned not to expect to keep things that can be taken away. An unforeseen change in the will reveals that Elizabeth and her sisters may have the estate, but only if the eldest weds Dr. Luke Pembroke, their great-aunt’s beloved physician, who needs the estate just as desperately as they do.
Knowing her sister to be in love with another, Elizabeth is appalled when she begins courting Dr. Pembroke, intent to sacrifice her own happiness. Nothing if not determined, Elizabeth makes plans to sabotage the courtship. With her schemes underway, she quickly learns that her sister’s suitor is nothing if not clever—nothing except, perhaps, handsome, kind, and infuriatingly charming. When the feelings between them become impossible to ignore, Elizabeth discovers that love has a scheme all its own, and it might just be the most determined of all.
Sweet romance and enjoyable read. I liked all the characters and the story was plotted in such a way that I couldn’t figure out how it would have a happily ever after for everyone. And in fact it didn’t resolve how I thought it maybe could, possibly, might.
There were some morals to the story like, love can work through anything and one can choose to be happy regardless of circumstances. Also, one should be nice to people and not believe gossip. All things my mother taught me too.
I think the premise for this series has been a fun one. I don’t know how many books are intended but I hope they can come up with a number of ways to entangle an inheritance to continue to entertain us because I have enjoyed the first four.
