The Luck of the Bride by Janna MacGregor
The Luck of the Bride by Janna MacGregor is the third book in a series called the Cavensham Heiresses. I picked up this book not realizing that the book was part of a series. I found the book quite interesting and did not feel any problems due
to reading a book without reading the prior books.
Marsh Lawson, the oldest child of a close family, suddenly became the head of the family with her younger sisters
and brother. She managed for over a half dozen years, no matter the difficulty with managing and making ends meet. Marsh has been signing documents with the name of the Marquess of McCalpin to help maintain food and proper clothing for her siblings.
After all, the man was supposed to be taking care of them until her brother reached his majority and he was not doing his job and she was only taking money from her dowry.
The Marquess of McCalpin was notified that someone was taking money from the accounts, he was supposed to watch over. Michael Cavensham did not keep the accounts himself but had “men” who took care of those things. However,
once apprised of the situation, he informed Marsh that any further withdrawals even from her account were unacceptable and sent her on her way, without even listening to her.
fear, Michael felt that someone would find out his secret. The desperation, Marsh felt for her family and the fear that can with that would push her toward Michael helping them. The secret and other interesting supposed truths would cause the situation
to spiral out of control. Was Marsh really the imposter some said, or was someone setting her up to hide the theft of larger amounts of money.
I enjoyed The Luck of
the Bride by Janna MacGregor. The twists of the plots were interesting as were the characters. The safety of younger siblings made the story more emotionally stirring. Michael’s secret grew in complexity in his mind. He worked so hard to
keep it that he missed how his family cared for him and probably wouldn’t care.
The Luck of the Bride by Janna MacGregor was a good read.
