Blog Tour: Eulogy's Secret by Grace Elliot

Welcome to my stop for the The Secrets Blog Tour.  It features my review of the novel; I highly recommend you check the other tour stops if interested (they've got giveaways).

Eulogy's Secret by Grace Elliot
Genre:  Adult Historical Romance

Description (taken from Goodreads):
Greed, prejudice and a stolen identity.

In the four weeks since her guardians' death, Eulogy Foster has lost everything. Penniless and alone she seeks the help of her estranged brother, Lord Lucien Devlin. But Devlin throws Eulogy onto the streets and the mercy of a passing stranger, Jack Huntley, who becomes an unlikely ally. As Eulogy seeks the truth behind her birth, she is drawn into the world of art and artists, where her morals are challenged and nothing is as it seems.

Jack Huntley: bitter, cynical and betrayed in love. He believes women are devious, scheming, untrustworthy creatures - and when he rescues a naïve Miss from being raped, his life is about to change forever. There is something about Miss Foster that haunts him and challenges his emotions. But despite their growing attraction, Eulogy will not share her secret, which means he cannot trust her. Caught in a deadlock, both denying their true feelings, events take a sinister turn as someone seeks to silence Eulogy...permanently.

So, this novel is a very sweet and sappy romance.  And it made me happy.  You know, the feel-good, love-conquers-all kind of happy...

This book starts out with Eulogy at Lucien's doorstep attempting to find shelter at her long, lost brother's home.  And the things that could go wrong when a lady is by herself in old-time London (note the historical setting) tends to go wrong.  And then we meet Jack.  And they're both smitten with each other.  While I would have loved to see more of the transition from acquaintance to in-love, I still enjoyed the emotions that played between the two throughout the novel.  And this story just takes off from there.

We see a lot of decisions going wrong and misunderstood statements between Eulogy and Jack.  But love does conquer all in the end.  And while I may not have that kind of sappy romance in the real life, it's always fun to read about.  Who should read this?  Anyone looking for a happy, historical romance read...

Thanks goes to Fierce Reading Virtual Tours for providing me a review copy.

  1. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book, Manda! Brave of you to tackle historical romance if it's not your usual genre - I hope it's something you'd consider returning to.
    Kind regards,
