Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Title: The Luck of the Bride
Publisher: St Martin’s Press
Published: May 1st, 2018
This is a historical romance with a strong, determined young lady as the powerful lead character. March Lawson is an orphan who is struggling to care for her younger siblings after the tragic death or their parents eight years ago. They are supposed to have a suitable allowance to help maintain them home and keep them in the style to which nobility expects but their trustee seems reluctant to let them have any monies and March has to do more and more to just keep them fed and safe. She should have been given her own trust funds to manage when she was 25 years old – three months ago. However, the trustee isn’t responding to any communications so she decides to obtain her own money to help keep her siblings safe, warm and fed – she signs instructions for monies to be paid into her account but she signs them as the trustee, Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin. When he discovers what she has been doing he decides to investigate . . .
This is a well crafted story with brilliant characters – some you’ll love and others, well I’d better not type what I’d like to do with them! There’s mystery, intrigue and suspense, threats, danger, lies and disgrace as the story unfolds. There’s also a heartwarming romance that may well bring a tear to your eye as it develops with so many twists and turns to keep you guessing. If you enjoy reading historical romance I recommend you don’t miss this – but keep the tissues handy whilst you read it!
I requested and was given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Can a woman who’s down on her luck find love with a dashing Duke-to-be? Find out in The Luck of the Bride, the next Regency romance in the Cavensham Heiresses series from Janna MacGregor.
She’s leaving nothing up to chance. Not even love…
March Lawson is an orphan who, for the past eight years, has struggled to raise her siblings on a meager allowance. Most women March’s age would be picking out ball gowns for the upcoming season. But March’s focus is not on finding a husband. First, she must devote her energies to just one man: the coldhearted skinflint who refuses to release her inheritance.
Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin, is not a heartless man. When he learns that Miss Lawson has been forging his name to procure funds, he can’t bring himself to have her arrested—not when the bold-faced embezzler is so enchantingly beautiful. Instead, McCalpin agrees to visit her home to assess the situation more closely. March has no choice but to accept. But how can she manage the handsome trustee who controls her purse strings—when he tugs at her heart strings as well?
