The Marquess of Yew Park House Review
These are the last words in the book, spoken by Genevieve. After all the trials, mysteries, and miscommunication, these words are the perfect end to a perfect love story.
Henry Spencer, also known as the Marquess of Clairborne, leaves the London season in a rush. Faced with his future as an eligible husband, he panics and runs for his Scottish country estate. This estate belonged to his uncle, who had a strange architectural eye. But it isn’t the architecture that has Henry feeling disjointed.
Yew Park House holds a mysterious past that Henry begins to catch small pieces of in his memory the longer he stays on the estate. Luckily, the lovely Genevieve and her daughter Elizabeth are there to keep him entertained. Swimming holes, interesting grottos, and beautiful gardens are all around for exploration and falling in love.
However, the mystery of Yew Park isn’t the only one that needs solving. Genevieve had plenty of secrets herself that may lead to her ruin. Genevieve spends all her time running from her past. When she falls in love with Henry, she plans to run again. Fortunately, Genevieve and Henry both come to their senses and search for each other.
I enjoyed The Marquess of Yew Park House immensely. I thought Thornhallow Hall was the bee’s knees, but Yew Park is just as decadent and full of mystery. The story never falters and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat the entire book. I read this through in one sitting. Plus, the Scottish setting leaves one full of wanderlust.
I award Yew Park House a full 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend this Harlequin Historical to all my romance-loving friends. James tells of the patriarchy in a way that enrages you yet also fills you with delight as she thumbs her nose at it.
