I became a fan of Mimi Matthews the first time I read one of her books. I quickly read her back list and eagerly await each new story from her. This one was no exception.
‘I’m accustomed to not getting what I want.’
This time, Matthews brings us a story full of her usual richness and depth of emotion. An Indian dressmaker and a aristocratic young woman who is determined to acquire his services to make her a magnificent riding habit. That he does, but neither are prepared for what this action will do for either. A wonderful story here and one to be sitting proudly on my shelves. I also love the way Matthews weaves actual history into her books. I always go and check all of this out because I love history. Well done! Now I have to wait so long to read her next book. My thanks to the publisher for an early copy of this book. The opinion in this review entirely my own.
