Miss Wilton’s Waltz by Josi S. Kilpack

Miss Wilton's Waltz by Josi S. Kilpack

Sequel to The Vicar’s Daughter

I enjoyed the book preceding this one, so it was a pleasure to find its sequel. 

Let’s begin with the summary:

Lenora Wilton has spent her life hiding behind the keys of her beloved pianoforte and the vibrancy of her younger sister, Cassie. But Lenora is ready for a change and travels to Bath to live with her Aunt Gwen and teach music at an all-girls boarding school. She is different in Bath more comfortable with herself and enjoys the freedom and independence of her new life there.

When Lenora meets Aiden Asher, she finds herself attracted to him, but her unexpected feelings become more complicated when she learns that Catherine Lenora s newest and most troublesome student in the school is Mr. Asher's niece. Catherine is a difficult student, and Lenora works hard to make progress with the girl.

When the chemistry between Lenora and Aiden increases, they share a passionate kiss by the River Avon, and Lenora feels it is the beginning of a new forever until she learns that Aiden has withheld an important detail about his life that changes everything.

Lenora closes her heart to him, and Aiden, caught between his obligation and his heart, must do what he can to make amends. And Lenora, after years of hiding from everyone and everything, faces a decision only she can make.

And now, my review:

Our heroine suffers from anxiety, especially in social situations. Unfortunately, during her time, there is little known about how to treat her symptoms. She has found that if she finds three things to see, two things to touch, and one thing to smell she can ground herself in the moment and overcome her anxiety.  

This author is a master storyteller. The romance thread really worked here, keeping me reading. She threw in unexpected elements, which also kept me hooked. 

I enjoyed the time setting and seeing this character find her way after the personal losses she suffered in book one. 

Though these two books may be able to stand alone, I suggest reading The Vicar’s Daughter first. (See my review of The Vicar's Daughter here.)

I recommend this book!
