USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Monroe writes Regency romances you can’t resist. Her stories are filled with first loves and second chances, dashing dukes, and strong heroines. Each turn of the page promises an adventure in love and many late nights of reading.
With over twenty books published, her nine-part series, The Secrets of Scarlett Hall, which tells the stories of the Lambert Children, remain a favorite with her readers.
Ruth was definitely the story that held the most suspense. Throughout the Sisterhood of Secrets, Ruth has always been a little mysterious and definitely mischievous. Her story having started years earlier made it all the more compelling. It is told with that air of mystery, and a lot of heart. What makes this story stand out from the rest though is that it is more than just a love story between a couple but also the love of found family. That is exactly what Mrs. Rutley is to Ruth, and their story is equally captivating as her and her Captain’s. There has always been questions around Mrs.Rutley and it was satisfying to finally have those answers. I truly enjoyed this story and its conclusion had me in tears. An ending befitting the grace and honour that made up Mrs. Agnes Rutley. Her life and friendship being one of immense love and support above all else.
This is a delightful finish to Ms. Monroe’s series Sisterhood of
Sisters books. It is a wonderful finish with Ruth and her Captain.
I loved how Ruth was so feisty and unwilling to allow her Captain to
Wallow in self-pity. Her desire to see the world becomes a secondary
Goal as she tries to save her wonderful school mistress and see justice done.
The real culprit is finally revealed and was quite a surprise to me. To see
The villain of all the books finally see the light was wonderful to see as well.
I almost wish that Amy got her own story! A wonderful ending to a
Wonderful series and I was truly saddened to see it end.
