Miss Wilton's Waltz
A follow-up to Josi S. Kilpack's bestselling Proper Romance title The Vicar's Daughter.
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.
Lenora from The Vicar's Daughter returns. In the prior novel she had found who she thought would be her true love. In this book, she realizes that it is not true love. To escape embarrassment from a broken engagement, she goes to Bath to live with her Aunt. It is in Bath that Lenora emerges as a strong, confident woman. She dresses like a man and takes moonlight walks.
Aiden is a true gentleman. He has a kind soul and the patience of a saint to care for his niece, Catherine. Who is a brat. Once, I got to know Catherine's story and why she was acting out, I felt sorry for her. By the end of the story, Catherine was a well behaved girl. The chemistry between Aiden and Lenora was sweet. It did feel real. It seems that Lenora does find her true love in Aiden. Another good read by author, Josi Kilpack. Miss Wilton's Waltz will have you dancing with delight!
