I read the first two books in this “Unruly Royals” series last year and I’ve been desperately waiting for the library to get this third book. I’ve been obsessively checking LINK+ for seven months now and it’s been either unavailable or more recently, checked out, so when I noticed it was in last week, I pounced. Once it arrived in my hot little hands, I devoured it.
This book follows the oldest Heyworth sibling, Claire, following the break up with her husband. Since she wasn’t particularly close with the two brothers, I didn’t really remember too much about her. She was close with the horrible mother, so I assumed she was horrible too. Turns out she’s just a “good daughter” who was raised to obey and not question, trapped in a horrible marriage she thought she deserved. She reconnects with her first love in New York, while working for the first time in her 38-year-old life. It gets pretty storybook after that, but after seeing what Claire’s been through, you want that for her.
Things are set up for book #4, featuring the youngest Heyworth. And it seems like there is potential for a fifth book, following Claire’s daughter, Lydia and her new beau, Alistair. I just adore the Heyworth clan and this series of books. Perfect summer/holiday reading!
