The Runaway Duchess by Joanna Lowell


I had high hopes for The Runaway Duchess; however, I was disappointed.  I’m not too fond of both Neal and Lavinia and had difficulty warming to them.  Neal seemed one-dimensional at times, and Lavinia was spoiled and vapid.  The character’s personalities developed more past the fifty percent mark; for me, it was too late.  Neal and Lavinia did have believable chemistry.  The second half of the book was more interesting yet I still couldn’t get past disliking Lavinia and her choices.  I also felt the novel could have been shorter and conveyed the same message.  By the end the characters did redeemed themselves and there was a happily-ever-after.  Unfortunately ,this book was not for me.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Release Date: January 18, 2022

I love to review historical romance books! I discuss book reviews, thoughts on authors and series, and just general stuff about me!
