I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Bree Verity!
This is a sweet romantic story set in France during the revolution. It has everything a romance should have. Intrigue, context, and drama. What I found the author did well was represent the tension the French Revolution brought between the peasants and the nobles. It felt very real when reading it, and gave justification to Celeste's fears throughout the novel.
I believe that this book could have been edited a little more, and made more concise. Yes, we see decent character development in Celeste, and that takes some time, but I feel like it could've been shortened without affecting the quality of characterization.
I liked the inclusion if French expressions and phrases as they give a certain authenticity to the novel - it is set in France after all. I also enjoyed the agricultural "fun facts" sprinkled throughout. Those were neat, and took the focus off the romance, to give us a few breaks.
