Rags-to-Riches Wife (Mills & Boon Historical) by Catherine Tinley (2020)

Lady’s maid…
To wedded Lady?
Lady’s maid Jane Bailey’s life is turned upside down by the arrival of wealthy gentleman Robert Kendal. He’s come to take Jane to visit her long-lost, aristocratic grandfather. Travelling together, they succumb to a mutual attraction. Yet Jane knows a maid should not hope to love a gentleman, even if she’s suddenly wearing silk dresses and dining with the Family. Society decrees they cannot marry, but how long can Jane deny her heart?


It's impossible not to like Jane and Robert and take delight in their initial friendship followed by their burgeoning romance. The path to romance didn't run completely smoothly. There was the issue of Jane being the long lost granddaughter to a wealthy and aristocratic family. Her appearance was met with open hostility by some, mild curiosity by others, and hope and love by her grandfather.
I loved the realism is this book. Jane didn't have an easy upbringing after her father died and her story is treated with intelligence and sympathy. 

This is a lovely and touching read. I recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who enjoys historical regency romances.
