Book Review: ‘The Lady’s Second Chance Suitor’ (Grace-by-the-Sea 5) by Regina Scott

About The Book:

A second chance at love?

Hester Todd hoped never to run into her first love, Rob Peverell, again, until she does just that at the annual Grace-by-the-Sea Harvest Ball. Rob broke her heart seven years ago, sending her flying into the arms of a dashing naval lieutenant instead. Now a widow with a daughter she adores, Hester has finally found a little peace with her past. But one moment in Rob’s company, and her heart begins to whisper of a different future.

A tragedy propelled the rapscallion younger son to the title of viscount, and Rob is struggling to become the man his sister and tenants need. Romance at the moment is out of the question, but Hester always knew the way to his heart. When smugglers once more try to infiltrate the little coastal village, Hester and Rob must find a way to trust each other and protect their families and friends. In doing so, they may find that true love always deserves a second chance.

If you love sweet, witty Regency romances with a touch of adventure, then you’ll love The Lady’s Second-Chance Suitor, the fifth book in a series by an award-winning author.

About Regina Scott

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she’d learned a bit more about writing. Since then, she’s had published more than 50 clean historical romances. Her books have earned praise from reviewers and readers alike. Booklist calls her work “quietly compelling” and “impeccably written.” Huntress Reviews says, “Regina Scott delivers,” and “I will always buy a book with Regina Scott’s name on it.”

Regina Scott is the author of the American Wonders Collection, set in the history of our national parks, and the Frontier Bachelors series set in pioneer Seattle. She is also the author of more than three dozen sweet historical romances set in Regency England in such series as Grace-by-the-Sea, Fortune’s Brides, Uncommon Courtships, and the Lady Emily Capers. She has twice been awarded best book of the year for her type of story from industry favorite RT Book Reviews. A Distance Too Grand in the American Wonders Collection was named one of the top 10 romances of the year by Booklist.

Regina Scott has learned to fence, driven four-in-hand, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course. She makes her home in the Puget Sound area of Washington State with her beloved husband.

My Rating: 4 Stars!

‘Perhaps it was time to dust off her own dreams again.’

I just love this delightful series by Regina Scott. The little village of Grace-by-the-Sea is the home is some very precious people and I have grown quite fond of them.

This fifth book in the series finds Hester Todd in the position of having to learn to live in the same vicinity as a man she was once enamored with. But he left without a word and she married someone else. Now a widow with a small child, she is determined not to allow him to affect her anymore. Even if he is the new Viscount Peverell.

Regina Scott has dreamed up such a delightful place with a cast of characters that are able to worm themselves into my heart. And they are mighty spunky, too, when threatened! I loved every minute.

My thanks to the publisher and author for a copy of this book. I received no compensation and the opinion in this review is my own.
