I loved how unpredictable this story was! With a formula that seems similar to many love stories, there are surprises in every chapter. Unpredictable choices, conversations, and people combine to create a satisfyingly suspenseful story.
Don’t be concerned if you haven’t read the other stories in this series, enough back details are offered throughout to help keep the reader engaged and up to speed on how people are connected to each other. This isn’t to say you shouldn’t read the other books in the series if written life A Lady Unrivaled they will be engaging and enjoyable.
On her blog, Roseanna M White posts the back story behind her inspirations including pictures. When the library picture post came up I immediately knew what part of the story was being presented. I love when the pictures in my head match the pictures the author is inspired by!
