Uncaged Review: Samantha Hastings lives with her sister in law after the tragic death of her brother. After a certain amount of time has passed Samantha and her sister in law are hoping to find themselves each a husband. She meets Lord Benjamin Westwood, one out of a set of brothers who are both twins. Real ladies man Benjamin is to advise Samantha of any promising marriage suitors, of course without falling for her himself but that won’t happen as he isn’t the type to settle down. There’s some major plot twists that happen in this book a marriage proposal, the dead come back to life, and more.
I do love a good period drama story. But when there’s a hint of murder to go along with the romance and social dances, it makes it even more interesting to read.
Can’t wait to read more to see what happens next with Miss Hastings and company. Reviewed by Jennifer
