When Evie Nicholson is asked to visit Kettlesheer Castle in Scotland to archive the family heirlooms, she jumps at the chance. Evie’s passion for antiques means that, for her, the castle is a treasure trove of mysteries just waiting to be uncovered.

But in each heirloom lies a story, and in the course of her investigations, Evie stumbles upon some long-buried family secrets. Add handsome, gloomy heir Robert McAndrew and a traditional candlelit gala to the mix, and Evie’s heart is sent reeling with an enthusiasm that may just extend beyond the Kettlesheer silver…

Review: 

The Vintage Girl By Hester Browne was a bit of a whim purchase for me. I usually love Erotic Romance, but to be honest the ‘Vintage’ part of the title pulled me in. I love all things vintage, and I loved the look of the cover.

I decided to use my Audible credit to purchase this book and was not disappointed. I loved Cathleen McCarron’s voice. She was perfect for the novel.

Evie Nicholson works in an antique store and is a bit obsessed with all things in the past. She is invited to Kettlesheer, a struggling family mansion to value some of their stuff, and they are skint!

Evie meets Robert McAndrew, son and heir to the mansion, and sort of maybe falls for him.

To be honest, it was a good story, and I loved the detail of the house, the antiques, and the dancing., but I do think for me, she fell short of the romance. Other than some odd moon eyes and one kiss, there was none. That’s not to say this wasn’t a great book, but for me when it comes to romance, I love the works. Dates, mates, sex, attraction, lust.. it just didn’t have this.

I have never read anything by Hester Browne before, and even though the Romance part wasn’t really Romancy, I think I will read more especially The Runaway Princess this sounds like a great book I wanna read.

Onwards and upwards..
