'Trevor Bailey is on the cusp of opening the greatest hotel in London. His days as a gutter snipe are behind him, as he enjoys a life of wealth, society, and clandestine assignments as a spy in the service of the Crown. Until one tumultuous night churns up the past he'd long left behind...
Turned out by her employer for her radical beliefs, Lucy Greenleaf reaches out to the man who was once her most beloved friend. She never expected that the once-mischievous Trevor would be so handsome and gentleman-like and neither can deny the instant attraction.
But Lucy's reformer ways pose a threat to the hotel's future and his duties as a spy. Now Trevor must choose between his new life and the woman he's always loved...'
Jenny Holiday has become one of my auto buy authors after reading this instalment in her Regency Reformers series. I enjoyed this book even more than the first in the series, 'The Miss Mirren Mission,' and I can't wait for more.
This heart melting story of two childhood friends being reunited as adults and falling in love will have fans of the genre sighing in delight and clamouring for more from Jenny Holiday.
The added tension of spies, intrigue and murder made this novel unputdownable.
I loved the detail of Trevor and Lucy's shared past and how it shaped the course of their lives. Even though many years have passed since they have seen each other, their friendship is as true as it was when they were children. These two characters are very endearing and I didn't want to get to the end of their story!
I loved this book and I wholeheartedly recommend it to readers who love historical romance with a bit of mystery.
'The Likelihood of Lucy' is available to pre-order now in Kindle format and is to be published on the 26th of May.
