An Inconvenient Beauty Review


Although I’m sad to see the Hawthorne House series come to a close, I have to happily admit that An Inconvenient Beauty is a breath-taking finale.

Here’s the blurb:

Griffith, Duke of Riverton, likes order, logic, and control, and he naturally applies this rational approach to his search for a bride. He’s certain Miss Frederica St. Claire is the perfect wife for him, but while Frederica is strangely elusive, he can’t seem to stop running into her stunningly beautiful cousin, Miss Isabella Breckenridge.

Isabella should be enjoying her society debut, but with her family in difficult circumstances, her uncle will only help them if she’ll use her beauty to assist him in his political aims. Already uncomfortable with this agreement, the more she comes to know Griffith, the more she wishes to be free of her unfortunate obligation.

Will Griffith and Isabella be able to set aside their pride and face their fears in time to find their own happily-ever-after?

My thoughts:

An Inconvenient Beauty drew me in with the lavish ballroom scenes, vast country estates, and charming characters. The story was seamlessly presented captivating my attention from page one.

From reading the previous books, I had a good idea of who Griffith, Duke of Riverton, was. Or so I thought! I loved finally seeing the world through his eyes and experiencing the honor and burden of being British nobility. He formulated plans for everything – including finding the perfect spouse. It was amusing to watch his life turn upside-down when Isabella Breckenridge stepped into London society.

Bella was known for her beauty, but she desired to be admired for who she really was. I loved that about her. Though she was imprisoned by her uncle’s demands, her character still seemed to shine. The relationship between her and her cousin, Freddie, helped endear Bella more to me. She truly cared for others around her.

I enjoyed the chemistry between the two characters. It was interesting to watch the story unravel with twists and turns that kept me guessing how it would end. The author did a spectacular job crafting a beautiful story.
