In all fairness I haven’t read the first books in this series. If I had, I might be writing a completely different review. I don’t read a lot of historical fiction, so when Lori at Get Red PR offered to gift me this book in exchange for an honest review I jumped at the chance.
Synopsis: For years things have run smoothly at Cavendon Hall, with very few quarrels, dramas, or upsets among the Inghams and the Swanns. But since the end of World War II, things have changed.
The Secrets of Cavendon picks up in the summer of 1949, with the new generation of the estate at the forefront of the scandal and intrigue. With romance, betrayal, heartbreak, and possible murder threatening to tear them apart, the Inghams and Swanns will have to find a way to come together and protect each other in the face of threats they never could have predicted.
I ended up giving this a solid 3⭐️! I found this book monotonous at times, but I did enjoy the setting and the occasional witty dialogue. I’ve never been big on soap operas and this was painfully reminiscent of one. There were a lot of characters to keep track of and I never felt like I bonded with any of them. The best part for me was the setting. I’ve always loved the time period between the 1920s-60s in rural Britain, so that was the highlight of the book for me. I would recommend reading the first books in this series first before attempting this one. If you fall in love with the characters early on, you might appreciate this installment too.
