Teryl Cartwright's Courting Constance ~ Reviewed
By Teryl Cartwright
Vintage Reflections Publishing 2010
Review by Michelle Griep
“I will make him love me again.”
With this vow, Constance Alford, realizing she may have lost the only love of her
life, pursues her former fiancé relentlessly. She isn’t surprised to discover Sir Geoffrey isn’t at all interested in his not so ‘secret’ admirer. And when her creative attempts to win him back fail, Constance begins to think that her best, most daring plan of all still won’t be enough.
Still suffering from the sting of Constance’s earlier rejection, Sir Geoffrey also
has a plan for the resourceful Miss Alford, although his ideas revolve more around
revenge. She would pay for trifling with the love he once offered her. He would make her truly love him and then walk away from her, finally and forever. But his heart gets in the way of his ideas, and he soon finds himself at the mercy of his own plans.
What I liked most about Courting Constance is the setting. Author Teryl
Cartwright takes the reader on a lovely visit to Bath, England. Her attention to detail has you tasting the awful medicinal waters and biting on a Sally Lunn bun right along with the characters.
If you’re looking for a sweet read on a rainy day, this is the book for you.
