Summary from Goodreads:

 “Charming, beautifully written, and hopelessly romantic. Sure to be a new favorite!”
-JULIANNE DONALDSON, best-selling author of Edenbrooke

Brighton, England 1820

Amelia Moore wants only one thing—to secure the future happiness of her younger sister, Clara. With their stepfather’s looming death, the two sisters will soon be on their own—without family, a home, or a penny to their names. When an invitation arrives to join a house party at Lakeshire Park, Amelia grasps at the chance. If she can encourage a match between Clara and their host, Sir Ronald, then at least her sister will be taken care of.

Little does she know that another guest, the arrogant and overconfident Mr. Peter Wood, is after the same goal for his own sister. Amelia and Peter begin a rivalry that Amelia has no choice but to win. But competing against Peter—and eventually playing by his rules—makes Amelia vulnerable to losing the only thing she has left to claim: her heart.


This was a wonderful read. I finished it in one day because I couldn't put it down. From the very beginning, I could feel the strain on the characters and how much the two sisters loved each other. Amelia only wanted to give her sister Clara what she deserves. Lives become entwined as the wheels of courtship turn and we find out that not everything is as it seems. Loved it.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

Megan Walker was raised on a berry farm in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, where her
imagination took her to times past and worlds away. While earning her degree in
Early Childhood Education, she married her one true love and started a family.
But her imaginings of Regency England would't leave her alone, so she picked
up a pen and wrote her first novella, A Beautiful Love: A Regency Fairy Tale
Retelling which was published in 2019. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with her
husband and three children. Lakeshire Park is her debut novel.
