Book Recommendation - On the Wings of Devotion

Roseanna M. White has hit another one out of the park! Her historical romances are among my "go to" books (and I'm not even a fan of romance!). Of all of the books I've read of hers (which is just under half of them - I plan to remedy that soon), I have to say that this one is my favorite so far. Arabelle Denler is such a solid and relateable character, and Phillip Camden is a hero that you really want to cheer for and help lift him out of his troubles. This one had me laughing and crying. At one point when Arabelle is feeling particularly lonely and abandoned, I really had a hard time keeping my tears at bay as I fully recognized those emotions. Ms. White did such a good job of keeping those feelings true to life!

Here's the back cover blurb for all who are interested:

One of my most anticipated releases this year was this gem, which releases today! Jaime Jo Wright pens phenomental dual timeline novels with mystery and intrigue, romance, and a seamless flow between time periods. The mysteries always connect and tie up by the end of the book This one was no different! In addition to a great story, this book also delved into the waters of grief - how easy it is to drown in it and some good solid advice for getting out of it!




Here are a couple of quotes from the book relating to that, that I absolutely adored!





Here's the back-cover blurb that tells more about the book:
After Aggie Dunkirk's career is unceremoniously ended by her own mistakes, she finds herself traveling to Wisconsin, where her grandmother, Mumsie, lives alone in her vintage, though very outdated, home. Aggie didn't plan for how eccentric Mumsie has become, obsessing over an old, unsolved crime scene--even going so far as to re-create it in a dollhouse.

Mystery seems to follo…
