From the Back Cover
THE MAN GLANCED OVER HIS SHOULDER, STRAIGHT AT MY FACE. WITH ONE HAND, HE REACHED UP AND PULLED THE VENETIAN MASK FROM HIS EYES.
Growing up in a dreary coastal town, Lucy Abbot has secretly dreamt of a perfect and exciting romance, missing the childhood summers spent in the countryside with her cousins and their charming neighbor, Nicholas. After Lucy learns that Nicholas has been married in the six years of her absence, she is heartbroken and more determined than ever to move beyond her past and claim her independence. Lonely and confined, Lucy grasps an opportunity to return to the estate of Rosewood at her cousins invitation, hoping the escape will lift her spirits, keeping her departure secret from her protective parents.
But just as her journey is finally underway, her carriage is besieged by highwaymen with a familiar man leading them. Struggling through past heartbreak and fearing for her life in the present, Lucy cant help but wondercould this mysterious outlaw be exactly the person she has been searching for?
Road to Rosewood is about a strong willed young lady who has always been in love with her childhood crush. Lucy has played up Nicholas so much in her mind, that after several years when she finally meets up with him again, he's not quite the same. There are many things happening in this story that lead to misunderstandings, secrets being kept, mysteries to figure out, and maybe love to be found. This is a clean romance with just the right amount of great chemistry between Lucy and Nicholas. There is a lot of humorous dialogue between them that is characteristic of their relationship since they were children. There were a few times I wanted to shake both of them because of choices they made, but you have to figure in what is going on in the story that accounted for some of their actions.
This book is a fun adventure full of secrets, with just the right amount of romance to make for a great, afternoon read.
