The Inconvenient Elmswood Marriage is an historical romance and book four of the Penniless Brides of Convenience series.
This is the story of Kate, an estate manager’s daughter who married a man, only to live separately from him for the next eleven years.
Daniel Fairfax wanted nothing to do with his inheritance and was only too happy to hand the running of his estate over to Kate. For eleven years their only communication were brief letters. But when two men from the Admiralty turned up at his home seeking Kate’s help. She believed it was her wifely duty to pack a bag and go to his rescue.
Having read the previous three books in this series, I was pleased to get the chance to read Kate’s story. I enjoyed the snippets about the agricultural revolution that were slipped into the narrative and appreciated the role Kate played in restoring the estate grounds and gardens.
The romance was expected, but still worked well between the couple, even surprising me a little at times.
Overall, a fine ending to a series.
