Edenbrooke Blog Tour

Hey guys, so as a part of the Edenbrooke Blog Tour set up by Pam from I was given two copies of Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson to giveaway. If you haven't heard about this book, it' basically the YA book form of Downton Abbey. Sounds pretty great, right?!

Here's the Goodreads summary:
Marianne Daventry will do anything to escape the boredom of Bath and the amorous attentions of an unwanted suitor. So when an invitation arrives from her twin sister, Cecily, to join her at a sprawling country estate, she jumps at the chance. Thinking she’ll be able to relax and enjoy her beloved English countryside while her sister snags the handsome heir of Edenbrooke, Marianne finds that even the best laid plans can go awry.

From a terrifying run-in with a highwayman to a seemingly harmless flirtation, Marianne finds herself embroiled in an unexpected adventure filled with enough romance and intrigue to keep her mind racing. Will Marianne be able to rein in her traitorous heart, or will a mysterious stranger sweep her off her feet? Fate had something other than a relaxing summer in mind when it sent Marianne to Edenbrooke.
What is a "Proper Romance"?
