About Where the Stars Meet the Sea
Juliet Graham fervently counts the days until her twenty-first birthday, when she can claim the inheritance that will grant her the freedom she has always craved and the guardianship of her younger brother. Until then, she is trapped under her aunt Agnes’s domineering will. When forced to accompany the family to a house party at Shaldorn Castle, Juliet’s only objective is to keep to herself. That is, until a chance encounter with a boorish stranger stirs up an unexpected whirlwind of emotions in her. Thrown off-balance, Juliet does the unthinkable: loses her temper and insults the man—who turns out to be her unwilling host, the Duke of Halstead. Fully expecting to be sent away, Juliet is surprised when the brusque and callous duke instead takes an interest in her.
Drawn to the duke in unguarded moments, Juliet finds herself more and more intrigued by the man who shuns Society’s rules as completely as she does, and over the next few weeks, their unlikely friendship deepens into a connection neither expected.
But even as Juliet comes to recognize her true feelings, her scheming aunt issues an ultimatum that threatens the future she was just beginning to hope for. Juliet must choose: either break the promise she made to herself years ago, or lose the man who has captured her heart and soul.
How’s everyone doing right now? I’m going a bit stir crazy in my house. But luckily, I have a huge supply of books to take me somewhere else during this crazy time!
This book is the newest Regency romance by Heidi Kimball. I loved everything about it! The author did a great job with the characters, the plot, and the setting.
I really loved Juliet. One thing that really sets her apart from most young ladies that are written about in this time period is that she is really a nobody. Juliet’s mom had been a lady, but her father was a sailor. That left her and her brother, Harry, in a social class by themselves. Juliet felt awkward, and rightly so, living with her aunt after she was orphaned.
Juliet is also fun because she speaks her mind. I loved the many scenes where she told the Duke of Halstead off for something or other. He deserved them! I really loved their interractions.
It would have been nice to have seen what the Duke was thinking throughout the book. But, maybe this one was better that way. With the reader not knowing any more than Juliet what he was thinking. There is a certain charm to that.
I really loved the castle that this book is set in. Juliet explores it multiple times and gets herself into so much trouble. It made me smile.
If you’re needing an escape from your current conditions, this book can be a big help!
I was sent a copy of Where the Stars Meet the Sea as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
