Review & Giveaway: The Best Intentions by Sarah M. Eden

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for The Best Intentions by Sarah M. Eden,
hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Title: The Best Intentions

Series: The Huntresses #1

Author: Sarah M. Eden

Publisher: Covenant Communications

Release Date: November 21, 2022

Genre: Clean & Wholesome Romance/Historical/Regency

In the eyes of London Society, Gillian Phelps is suitable enough. Though the ton whispers about her change of residence, any speculation remains just that: ballroom gossip. No one—not even the other Huntresses, the group of ladies she calls her dearest friends—knows that she is harboring a devastating family secret. Gillian has become adept at hiding the reality of her circumstances, but the close quarters of a house party will test her ability to conceal the crushing truth. And with so many people to deceive, the late arrival of another guest is a most unwelcome surprise.

Despite his standing as a gentleman of the ton, in truth, Scott Sarvol possesses little more than two debt-riddled estates. When an opportunity arises to survey one of his properties, he travels north, only to find himself an unwitting guest at Artemis Jonquil’s house party. He is warmly welcomed by all—except the aloof Miss Gillian Phelps. But when Scott proves himself unexpectedly helpful in a crisis, his acquaintance with Gillian shifts from wariness to something warmer.

As both her charade and her feelings for Scott deepen, Gillian realizes that the truth could spell not only a devastating fall from Society but also a shattered heart.

I have only read a handful of titles by Sarah M. Eden so far and have discovered that I am becoming increasingly enchanted by any of her novels containing members of the Jonquil or Lancaster families. I was thrilled to see a chronological listing of these books as I turned the last page of The Best Intentions. And now my intention is to work through the list chronologically with the books that I have yet to read.

This story was a beautiful romance between two people who had experienced more than their fair shares of difficult circumstances and disappointments. I was impressed with the author’s ability to create two different situations that Gillian and Scott were struggling with, yet the troubles they faced seemed impossible to overcome.

I loved the way these two began to get to know each other and the way that love snuck up on them. And once that love was there, and acknowledged, I thought that their care and concern for each other showed what honorable and genuine people they were.

It was great to see so many Jonquils and even one of the Gents in this novel! It makes me eager to start catching up with these characters in the books that I have yet to read.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
