- Title: An Independent Woman by Frances Evesham
- Genre: Historical Romance – Mystery Romance
Orphaned Philomena is fleeing London to not only escape her tormentor, Joseph, but to start a new life for herself. Unfortunately, fate has other ideas when a train crash places her under the protection of the darkly attractive Hugh, Lord Thatcham. It doesn’t help that she first meets Lord Thatcham disguised as a boy …
An Independent Woman is a typical historical romance – very fun, light, and easy to read. The mystery aspects of the story were also done very well, infusing the story with suspense and tension. I also really enjoyed the fact that the romance stayed clean and focused on romance – not sex.
I’d recommend this to fans of historical romance – especially Victorian or Regency romances, as well as romantic mysteries.
