This book definitely hooks you right from the start! In one of the opening scenes you find out that the main character Isobel, the Duchess of Warwick, is indeed just Miss Isobel Kennilworth.

Her late husband, errrr fake husband, left her with the bare necessities and she must find her way back into high society.
Which will be even harder now that she is disgraced!

Izzy was quite underhanded in her past. Her marriage to Lord Warwick came to pass because she stomped on everyone in her way.
She must deal with the consequences of her actions before she can truly move on with her life.

Although certain aspects of books are understandably predictable, there are twists and turns to the plot that I never saw coming.
It kept me turning the page until the end!

The characters are very well developed and I felt a connection to them almost immediately, which is not normal for me. I am a *series girl* because it usually takes me until almost the end of the first book to connect with the story.

Overall it was a very enjoyable read, and I am not even necessarily a fan of the genre.
Highly recommend!

BLURB:

Isobel Kennilworth Aiken, Duchess of Warwick spent 6 years of her young life in a loveless marriage. Now, at the age of 24, Isobel is a widow. As Isobel awaits the reading of her late husband’s last will and testament, she feels no grief, but in fact is quite hopeful. She is eager to start her life anew. But, as the droning of the solicitor’s voice washes over her detailing the bequests to various servants and family members, a shock awaits her. The “other woman” was not his mistress, but his lawfully wedded wife and together they had a son. Six year old Reggie is now the Duke of Warwick, displacing Reginald’s brother Charles.
There is a collective gasp as the revelation is made that instantly cuts off Isobel and Charles and dashes their hopes for the future. Isobel must indeed start again, not as a titled, influential and wealthy widow, but as plain Miss Kennilworth, tainted by scandal, something to be avoided at all costs in Regency England. Can she get past the disgrace and humiliation she has endured and fight her way back into society? Will she find love again with her childhood sweetheart, Andrew Stafford, former vicar, now Lord Saybrooke? Or perhaps she will rekindle the romance with Jeremy Ingles, Lord Westcott, who had caught her fancy at her come out six years earlier, but had not been ready to be leg shackled.
But before Isobel can find true love, she must come to grips with her past mistakes and the people she has hurt along the way. She must discover who she is without the title of duchess to her name.

Indie-author-book-reviews

Allergy cases are on the rise, and are often frustrating for lack of understanding and for lack of knowledge about how to properly treat them. Rhinitis, or inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes, can lead to postnasal drip, chronic and recurrent sinus infections, sinus pressure, headaches, and even asthma symptoms of chest tightness, shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing. The bulk of rhinitis cases are treated by primary care health care providers, or are handled by patients who self-treat. However, many health care providers do not have a deep understanding of the biological mechanisms of rhinitis symptoms. Also, many patients who self-treat use over-the-counter medications that can actually prolong nasal symptoms – and can even pose further, more serious health risks. Allergic Rhinitis Treatment Secrets Your Doctor May Not Tell You, the first book in the Allergy Detective series by Benoît Tano, M.D., explores the origins of childhood and adult-onset allergy epidemic and the most effective ways to correct these symptoms. This guide, drawn from Dr. Tano’s practice experience as an allergist, reveals the mechanisms behind nasal symptoms and shows how using an optimal combination of medications is necessary for effective treatment of nasal symptoms to help allergy sufferers take better control of their allergies.
