    I know fellow book lovers will understand when I say that I fell in love with the characters of this book There s something about watching a character who is good and loving, who sacrifices for the good of her family, who doesn t complain or argue, finally find her voice and do something that she loves and wants Miss Lenora Wilton is finally reaching out for her happiness She s happy for her family and loves them dearly but she s had sorrow and heartache and wants to set that aside for joy an I know fellow book lovers will understand when I say that I fell in love with the characters of this book There s something about watching a character who is good and loving, who sacrifices for the good of her family, who doesn t complain or argue, finally find her voice and do something that she loves and wants Miss Lenora Wilton is finally reaching out for her happiness She s happy for her family and loves them dearly but she s had sorrow and heartache and wants to set that aside for joy and peace I loved Lenora, from the beginning to the end of this novel I ached for her I cheered for her I giggled at moments for her I sighed happily for her I even wished at moments that I could fix all the problems for her Of course I couldn t, all I could do was sit back and read, allowing her story to progress and Lenora to experience her life.Miss Wilton s Waltz can be read as a stand alone novel but if you have time and the desire, I would definitely recommend reading The Vicar s Daughter first That story belongs to Lenora s sister Cassie, although it is also part Lenora s story Partially what spurs Lenora on to find her peace and joy.I loved that Lenora was content with who she was, her personality, her quirks, her flaws, all of herself She wasn t determined to change who she was to please others Rather, she was happy to search for something in life that would compliment who she was and help her grow After a short visit to her Aunt Gwen in Bath during the end of The Vicar s Daughter , Lenora realizes she has found something that makes her happy She is going to teach music at an all girls boarding school in Bath and enjoy being her Aunt Gwen s companion.Lenora s personality was not the vivacious and outgoing personality like her sister Cassie But through her Aunt s love and encouragement, Lenora finds herself enjoying who she isandin social settings She will be content to teach music, play music and share her life with her aunt That is until an encounter by the river, at night, changes everything and seems to rob her of her new found freedom I won t expound anything other than it wasn t anything scandalous and bad, well maybe except for the fact that Lenora was there by herself without a chaperone Other than that you ll have to read to find out what happens.Lenora has many situations that will test her resolve, her strength, her personal desires for happiness, and may send her away from all that she s come to love I loved the dynamics of the characters, the struggles they bring into each other s lives, the joy Very good balance between them all.I have to say that this book truly touched me Partially because I could completely relate to Lenora in several aspects of her life I have taught piano since I was 15 years old Students of all ages and all personalities When Lenora is given a new student who pushes every button and tests every ounce of her patience, I could completely empathize with her I loved my students How can you not when you are invested in teaching and helping them for years and years There is a bond that grows between the student and the teacher Now, it s not always easy Not at all Sometimes I had students that pushed and tested every ounce of my patience and resolve as well But, those students, throughout all our time and lessons together, came to be some of my most treasured students The respect gained, the trust gained and the love gained were well worth every moment and honestly, sometimes tears I loved watching Lenora experience that same struggle and growth with this new student she had.There s some trickery involved with her teaching this student, which I m not going to go into detail for I want you to experience the joy of this story I had a few moments where I was surprised Lenora didn t call it quits with everything but hats off to her for how she handled those incredibly frustrating moments Bravo Lenora, bravo This is a sweet and clean proper romance novel, so of course there is a love story involved It was sweet, it was a mess, it was wonderful, it was agonizingly frustrating and heartbreaking It was a beautiful end, or rather beginning depending on how you want to look at it Mr Aiden Asher I loved him, I was angry at him, I trusted him and I was so grateful for his persistence Aunt Gwen was one of my favorite characters I loved her steady and gentle encouragement of Lenora The strength she offered throughout the novel was perfect She didn t offer an easy way out She encouraged Lenora to work through the struggles Here s a quote I really liked from a conversation between Lenora and Aunt Gwen I took out a couple sentences in between because I didn t want to spoil anything Lenora reached up and took hold of her aunt s hands I don t know what to do, she whispered, tears streaming down her cheeks I don t know what is right any The very hardest thing a person can do is be brave Brave enough to trust someone, brave enough to forgive the wrongs done, and brave enough to trust what their heart tells themWill you base your entire future happiness on one word Will you let fear rule your future I hope that if you take a chance on reading this book that you ll enjoy it as I did I was so glad that Josi Kilpack wrote Lenora s story I wanted to know what happened to her after The Vicar s Daughter ended and I m so very happy that Lenora found what she wanted and needed.Content CleanI received an ARC from the author All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own.Happy Reading

    I have a greater appreciation for Lenore, having seen what she went through in The Vicar s Daughter You don t have to read that one first, necessarily, but it really helped me to know Lenore s background and I admire and love her so much Lenore hasn t had an easy road in life, yet she s making the best of her situation Her temperament and personality really resonated with me, especially as she s deeper than she seems Throw in Aiden and I was in heaven There s something to be said about good, I have a greater appreciation for Lenore, having seen what she went through in The Vicar s Daughter You don t have to read that one first, necessarily, but it really helped me to know Lenore s background and I admire and love her so much Lenore hasn t had an easy road in life, yet she s making the best of her situation Her temperament and personality really resonated with me, especially as she s deeper than she seems Throw in Aiden and I was in heaven There s something to be said about good, solid, decent characters, striving to create the best for themselves and their loved ones The first meeting was intense and hilarious, at the same time, if that even makes sense Throughout this tough and gradual journey, I grew to immensely adore these characters, even the unlovable ones Josi Kilpack has a way of taking uncommon traits and unspoken conditions and writing them into tales that pierce the heart and soul Each book I read becomes a new favorite that I just don t want to come to an end This isn t your traditional Regency romance, but it s every bit enjoyable and I daresayso as the typical stories and I m eagerly awaiting what she writes next no pressure.Content very mild romance mild romance I received a copy, which did not influence my thoughts and opinions

    Loved this book so much It made me feel like I was really there with them in their time and as though I was a fly on the wall watching them waltz and I even felt like I could hear the music played sometimes I appreciated the ways they learned how to deal with difficulties and misunderstandings throughout the book and the solutions they found to help Aiden s niece be able to learn the best way for her.

at love and romance and failing, Lenora has retreated to Bath to be a companion to her Aunt Gwen and a music teacher at a girls school In Bath, Aunt Gwen values Lenora s thoughts and opinions and Lenora feelsbold and free She still suffers the same anxiety attacks she did in the country and the one time she can be free to be herself is on Sunday nights when she dresses in breeches and takes a solitary late night walk by the river One night Lenora is surprised by a strange man She struggles to get away and runs from some ruffians in the streets Her special time has been ruined and she can never, ever go back to the river When the school term starts, Lenora tries to focus on her work but it is quite difficult when her newest pupil, Catherine Munch, is a demon who makes life difficult for all her teachers Miss Henry, the proprietress of the school has her reasons for keeping Catherine on When Catherine s uncle intervenes on her behalf, Lenora is horrified to discover that Mr Asher is the man who discovered her by the river If only he didn t recognize her Alas, he did and Lenora is forced to put up with a horrible student she can t stand As Lenora gets to know Mr Asher, she discovers not a villain but a compassionate, loving man As feelings of friendship turn warmer, Lenora risks her heart only to discover dishonesty and heartbreak She retreats back to the girl she once was Can she allow her true self to shine once again and risk the gossip, the hurt and the heartache of trusting someone This story is not for Regency romance aficionados but for those who like painfully slow sweet romances with a moral I noted a few minor errors, especially in the Bath setting It seems to be as if the author has cursory knowledge of the Regency period and of the history of Bath I ve been to Bath and was hoping forlocal color but the local color seemsmodern than the Regency era but at least the author didn t reference the canal which hadn t been built yet The romantic plot didn t really appeal to me I was a littleinterested in what would happen with Catherine and think the story would have beenentertaining with a gothic plot The music history details were exceptional but I m not musical I have the opposite problem as Catherine I can memorize words easily but I can t understand music Music is a huge part of who Lenora is and it sounded like Asher, too, felt music was a huge part of his life but that idea got dropped quickly until the last half of the novel when it popped up again I noted a few inconsistencies in the plot as well, like the age Catherine comes of age Nothing major but that shouldn t happen with a book that isn t self published The Christian content is minor considering Lenora is a vicar s daughter but she does mention sinning a lot Then there is a heavy moral to the storyWhile I found the story insipid, I can relate to Lenora I am an introvert who sticks her nose in a book rather than socialize I don t have extreme social anxiety disorder the way Lenora does but I can relate to not wanting to be the center of attention or socialize with petty people Her crippling anxiety makes her a unique heroine and also unable to trust Aiden is a wonderful guardian for Catherine but I feel icky that he has a sugar plantation in Jamaica yet there s not one single mention of the ENSLAVED people who work that plantation and make him wealthy I would expect Lenora, as a vicar s daughter, to question that It would have been nice to have some discussion I like how Aiden isn t willing to give up on Catherine and how devoted he is to getting through to her Yet, he spoils her and lets her get away with bad behavior I actually do agree with Lenora about Aiden s behavior towards her He s a human though and he made a mistake She forgives him but I m not sure I d be that generous or trusting I feel sort of bad for Miss Keighly She s awful, especially in regards to Catherine, but as she points out, she had already received congratulations and had the expectation she would be wed Legally, she could sue him for breach of promise but he finds a way around that Lenora had listened to Aiden, the miscommunication wouldn t have happened Catherine is just awful She has a sadistic side to her like her father Her past is tragic but she sounds a lot older than 12 to have that kind of background knowledge of her family Her mean girl behavior also sounds older than 12 Her previous guardians couldn t get through to her and neither can her teachers I figured out what her problem was but didn t know what they could do about it at that time I doubt anyone would understand the concept of learning disability let alone be willing to work with her to overcome it How important was it for girls to be able to read and write I think they would just dismiss her as lazy Aunt Gwen is a lot of fun She doesn t sound elderly and her gossip has a purpose I like how she directs the action behind the scenes but sometimes her meddling goes too far This book was just not for me and I don t think I ll be reading anyRegency ish romances by this author
