The following is an honest review of A Holiday By Gaslight by Mimi Matthews and my suggested age rating.
In Victorian England a courtship for convenience is common but that doesn’t mean Sophie Appersett has to like it. She’ll do anything to save her family from ruin, but after courting Edward Sharpe for two months she can’t take it anymore. Sophie abruptly calls off the courtship with the dull and heartless man. A week passes and she realizes she was too hasty. The two vow to try again and be completely honest with each other. As Sophie gets to know Edward she realizes he may not be as heartless as she assumed.
Review of A Holiday By Gaslight
A dual perspective and second chance romance perfect for the Christmas season. Sophie and Edward both are extremely lovable characters they both admit fault and try again. Their romance was quick in the sense of the novella but there was history which made it believable. I loved how we instantly jump in at Sophie breaking off the courtship. There’s no build up you are immediately thrown into the characters lives.
If you love historical romance and victorian England this is the book for you! I read it in less than 24 hours. It was enjoyable and adorable. I knew from the first chapter it was gonna be good. This was my first Mimi Matthews book and I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style and will be picking up another one of her books in the future.
I gave A Holiday By Gaslight 5/5 stars on Goodreads
