Book review: The Vintage Girl - Hester Browne

 

When Evie Nicholson is asked to visit Kettlesheer Castle in Scotland to archive the family heirlooms, she jumps at the chance. Evie's passion for antiques means that, for her, the castle is a treasure trove of mysteries just waiting to be uncovered.



But in each heirloom lies a story, and in the course of her investigations Evie stumbles upon some long-buried family secrets. Add handsome, gloomy heir Robert McAndrew and a traditional candlelit gala to the mix, and Evie's heart is sent reeling with an enthusiasm that may just extend beyond the Kettlesheer silver... 






My opinion.
What a wonderful book. Everything from the blurb to the title and cover screamed "read me", and I loved every page of it. Evie is a wonderful, hopeless romantic who dreams her way through life. Until she ends up in this gorgeous Scottish castle where all her dreams and fantasies come to life.
I liked Evie from the very beginning. Hester Browne sketched some beautiful characters and I really enjoyed that she gave her readers the time to get to know all of them, and most importantly, to get to know Kettlesheer; I loved how nothing in the story-line or descriptions felt rushed.
The Vintage Girl is a charmingly romantic novel I couldn't recommend more! I'm already looking forward to reading more books by Hester Browne!

  2. Maryline, if you loved this book, you'll adroe Hester Browne's Little Lady series--this is the first thing I read of hers, and it partly inspired Breakup Doctor. And check out Honeymoon Hotel, her latest--just finished it and loved it. I haven't read this one, but it sounds great. Thanks!
