The Luck of the Bride (The Cavensham Heiresses #3) by Janna MacGregor
The Luck of the Bride - Janna MacGregor

The Luck of the Bride - Janna MacGregor 

 

his was a fun yet heart-melting story. I felt sad for March from the start. She’d been down on her luck for the longest and even though it shouldn’t have been like this, her family was about to hit rock bottom. The fact that her family stayed afloat for so long was a statement of how smart she was. 
I liked all characters portrayals as they were all defined and complex. I especially liked March’s younger brother, Bennett. His innocence added that dash of humor at the most interesting of times. March and Michael were great as a couple (at least through most of the book and I’ll get to that later.) She was sweet-natured and compassionate, always worrying about her siblings and how she was going to provide for them. Michael was charming and unassuming. It was easy to see why March fell for him. 

I dislike storylines that use unpremeditated secrets as another challenge to overcome. In this case, March and Michael had already made promises to each other but the moment such secret came to light, all promises were forgotten and even more drama was added. In addition, Michael’s attitude got me confused as I didn’t understand what exactly he was waiting for to correct his wrongdoings. 

In short, it was a good story that will have you tearing up as much as inducing a laugh, and if you don’t mind an excessive amount of purple prose then you will definitely enjoy this book.

** I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher. **

Another great page turner from Janna MacGregor
The Luck of the Bride - Janna MacGregor

I have enjoyed this series a lot, especially with the not-so-happy circumstances that arise. It did take me a little bit to get into the story, more so than the other two, but once it got going, I could not stop turning the pages. This story made me laugh, cry, and sigh. The strength that March had to keep their farm and home going, her family together, and improve their future was admirable. I loved how Michael stepped up once he knew he had been lax with his responsibilities. I loved all the characters throughout the series and this book. I highly recommend this book and the series.

I received a copy of this story through Netgalley, and it is a Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team selection. This is my unsolicited review.

The Luck of the Bride - Janna MacGregor

The story had strong characters and an entertaining plot. It had tense moments when he accuses her of embezzling more money and their fights after that were rough to witness, but it did make for a page turner.  I do think she forgave him a bit too quickly, especially with all of the things he accused her of, but other than that, the conclusion was enjoyable. I’m glad she got a happily ever after being she was the most selfless person in the story who never thought about her wants or needs; she deserved some happiness.  I really liked the role the Duke and Duchess played in getting them back together in the end; it reminded me a lot of Grace Burrowes’ Duke and Duchess from the Windham series, but in a more subtle way.  Their story was entertaining and well developed.  The cousin was a horridly perfect antagonist and the scene at the ball was terribly dramatic and added to the overall great story line. Overall, an enjoyable historical romance with characters you come to love and an entertaining story from start to finish.

Fantastic Historical Romance
The Bad Luck Bride (The Cavensham Heiresses) - Janna MacGregor

Janna MacGregor has once again impressed me with her storytelling abilities with The Luck Of The Bride.  Not only that, she's presented it in a well-written book filled with phenomenal characters.  March is the oldest of the four orphans in her family.  Their small family was left to struggle on their own and mostly ignored by guardian and trustee until she was forced to forge the trustee's signature to withdraw funds from her dowery.   Michael steps in when he learns his signature has been forged.  He tries to manage this small family while hiding his own secret.  March and Michael's story is loaded with drama, humor, suspense and spice.  I loved this book from the first page till the last and look forward to reading my next book by Janna MacGregor.  The Luck Of The Bride is book 3 of The Cavensham Heiresses Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
