Book Review: Love Finds You in Annapolis Maryland by Roseanna M. White
Roseanna White is proving herself to be a master (mistress?) of research and writing for historical
novels. For those of you who do not write, perhaps the incidentals of history, geography, and language of a specific period and place in time doesn't concern you. But for those of you who are writers, especially writers of historical novels or biographies, you will recognise just how much research Roseanna puts into her writing.
Love Finds You in Annapolis, Maryland is a beautifully written historical romance. Poor Larksong Benton. Engaged to Emerson Fielding, the man she loves--but who loves no one. At least not her. When she catches him kissing her cousin, that's the last straw. She flees from her home in Williamsburg, Pennsylvania, in bitter cold December to Annapolis, Maryland, away from father, mother, and brother to a family she doesn't know.
What? She ran away from him? How could she? How could he have made such a stupid mistake? Emerson wastes no time in tracing her down, but still, it takes him until after Christmas to find out where she is. He goes after her, but he finds her unwilling to have anything to do with him. In fact, she's enjoying herself immensely. The mousy little Lark has become the star attraction among all the unmarried men in Annapolis.
Will he win her back? Hm. Hard to tell. There's some pretty stiff competition. Check it out, buy it, or download it, QUICK!
