The Lily of Ludgate Hill by Mimi Matthews


The Lily of Ludgate Hill by Mimi Matthews

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Another fantastic Victorian romance from Mimi Matthews. You don't have to have read the other books in the Belles of London series to enjoy this story, but I highly recommend it because they are wonderful reads.  

Lady Anne Deveril was once secretly engaged to Mr. Felix Hartford, but they quarreled. Six and half years later, the sparks are still there when Anne asks Felix for a favor. He agrees to help her, however, the source of their quarrel is still a problem. Anne's mother, the dowager Countess of Arundell, can't cope with the death of her husband and has turned to spiritualism, laudanum, and obsessive mourning. Meanwhile, Felix is struggling with his own family problems. Anne must choose a second time between duty and love. 

Fans of Victorian novels will appreciate the nods to Queen Victoria's strict mourning rituals and spiritualism. This romance features 'enemies to lovers' and 'second chance' tropes. A sweet romance with a very satisfying ending.
