This book, in my opinion, gets 5 stars.
1: It's been a while since I've read anything by this author, but as far as I can remember, I like this one the best. I'll probably have to get out From This Moment again just to refresh myself. Either way if you love historical romance, then this should definitely be on your TBR list.
2: I loved all the characters, but I feel like Ryan is a sort of kindred spirit. It's nice to find a character who blushes at the least provocation (something that happens to me at least daily) and doesn't realize half the time what is plainly before his face.
3: SO MANY PEARLS!!!! I knew some of this stuff beforehand but this book takes a long look at the beginnings of cultured pearls. It was fascinating and I loved it.
4: I'd like to take a second and say, Oh my word that's one of the prettiest covers I've seen in a very long time.
5: You all know that I'm a sell-out for a good ending, and this book had an almost perfect epilogue.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
