Beauty Among Ruins
Momma Leighellen's Book Review
Beauty Among Ruins is a historical romance novel out January 12, 2021. Historical fiction is ALWAYS my go to genre. I love that it helps me escape to another time and place. We get to travel through pages! And meet new friends.
Beauty Among Ruins was absolutely lovely! It has all the elements I love in this type of a story – a stunning setting (Scotland), a quirky female lead (Lily, a nurse), a redemption tale, and my FAVORITE enemies to lovers trope.
The story follows Lily Durham, an heiress who can’t seem to find her footing in her American life. She’s shipped off to the countryside of Scotland where she immerses herself in her new job as a nurse during WWI. There she also meets her match, the grumpy Alec MacGregor, Laird of an estate he’s desperately trying to save. They do not see eye to eye from the get go! But they begin to work together to solve some mysterious happenings around the castle and their attraction is undeniable.
I thoroughly enjoyed this adventurous historical romance. From the details of the location to the witty dialogue, I was swept away by this sweet, slow bloom of a romance. I love when male characters can appreciate the strengths of an unconventional heroine. This was an inspiring story of finding yourself and where you belong.
