Author Bio:

Emily grew up in the north of England on a diet of historical romance and strong tea.
Unfortunately, you couldn’t study Regency slang, so she did the next best thing and gained a degree in Classics and History instead. This ‘led’ to an eight-year stint in engineering.
Having left city life, she now lives in a dilapidated farmhouse where her days are spent writing, fixing the leaky roof, battling the endless vegetation, and finding pictures of well-tied cravats.

Tracy’s rating: 5 of 5 stars

Series: The Governess Chronicles, #3

Release Date: December 1, 2022

Lady Gwen Evans has decided that it is time to move on from her private mourning and finally explore the world, she even has a list entitled Deeds and Intrigues to be Sought and Gained whilst Rambling Around the Continents and their Environs or D.I.S.G.R.A.C.E. for short (how great is that??) – but before she embarks on her travels, she will spend the Advent and Christmastide at the neighboring Llanedwyn Estate, home of Rhys and Isabelle Cadogan, the Duke and Duchess of Aberdare and their friends and family, including their orphaned niece Mari. Gwen grew up with Rhys and his twin brother Tristan, and the three were great friends as children, but it wasn’t until just over a year ago that things changed. Gwen and Tristan began to spend more time together when she returned from her London season and their friendship deepened and evolved into romantic love, but the feelings were still new and they decided to keep their newfound love just between them for a little while longer. And then the unthinkable happened, Tristan finally finished the boat he was building and sailed away one July afternoon, then a storm hit and he didn’t return. Despite a massive search, all they found was bits and pieces of his boat, Tristan (along with Gwen’s heart) was lost to the sea.

But Fate still had cards to play and she delivered Tristan back to his family, he had been in Ireland these last sixteen months and had suffered from amnesia and was living in a small village working as a carpenter when a visit from a family friend triggers the return of his memory – mostly – he doesn’t recall the year before his shipwreck – which includes his newfound love for Gwen. He returns home, and her heart breaks all over again – but she refuses to tell him of their love, instead, she hopes his memory returns, if not, she will walk away. Tristan is not the same man who left Wales all those months ago and the return to his family is not as simple as one would expect, not only does he feel different, he is haunted by a faceless woman in his dreams and to complicate matters, he finds himself attracted to Gwen in a completely unfriendlike way, but until he can recall what the faceless woman means to him, he can’t in good faith pursue anything with Gwen.  Oh yes, Fate is having a good time with these two and has no desire to make their path to HEA easy!

This was a well-written, nicely-paced second-chance romance brimming with emotion, but it was surprisingly light on the angst – which is a plus in my opinion! The book is filled with wonderful characters, secrets, longing, a bit of heartache, healing, new beginnings, ghouls, wassail, and finally a hard-earned HEA, complete with an epilogue. This book is set in Wales and the author does an amazing job of incorporating Welsh Yuletide customs and traditions into the story – I found the historical tidbits fascinating and especially enjoyed the “wassailing”. The book is on the “sweet” side as far as love scenes go, with only a couple of kisses and one mild love scene at the end, and while I usually like a bit more spice the story didn’t need it. This was a lovely read that I am happy to recommend and I am crossing my fingers that Hugh’s story is next!
