Rating: 5.0
Before She Became A Lady is a suspenseful mystery romance. I absolutely loved laurel, the main character! At the start of the story, she is the poster child for innocence, followed by light rebellion. She's just a girl when she falls in love and chooses to marry, but throughout the coarse of the book you get to see her evolve into a real woman.
I thought reading this text was much like watching a butterfly break from it's cocoon - artful, pleasant, and suspenseful.
When her husband has to up and leave for war, Laurel is left alone to face the terrors that flood the night. Alone and in charge, Laurel has no choice but to step up to the plate and solve these break in mysteries.
The romance and suspense were spot on perfection! I'm not just saying that. I mean I honest to god felt like I was Laurel on multiple occasions and it scared the hell out of me!! (Not the love making! That part was very romantic and not at all scary, I promise. This isn't Mr. Penn.)
I loved the historical time period, as well. It's no secret I'm obsessed with historical fiction and the mannerisms and setting in this book specifically did NOT disappoint! In fact, this is one of the best historical romances I have ever read! It's truly capturing, breathtaking, and a lot of other -ings! I recommend this book for those who enjoy a little mystery added to their historical romance.
