Book Review: Road to Rosewood by Ashtyn Newbold

About the Book:

Growing up in a dreary coastal town, Lucy Abbot has secretly dreamt of a perfect and exciting romance, missing the childhood summers spent in the countryside with her cousins and their charming neighbor, Nicholas. After Lucy learns that Nicholas has been married in the six years of her absence, she is heartbroken and more determined than ever to move beyond her past and claim her independence.

Lonely and confined, Lucy grasps an opportunity to return to the estate of Rosewood at her cousin’s invitation, hoping the escape will lift her spirits, keeping her departure secret from her protective parents.

But just as her journey is finally underway, her carriage is besieged by highwaymen with a familiar man leading them. Struggling through past heartbreak and fearing for her life in the present, Lucy can’t help but wonder—could this mysterious outlaw be exactly the person she has been searching for?
My Thoughts:

I practically devoured Road to Rosewood by Ashtyn Newbold. This fast-paced, historical romance carried my attention from beginning to end. Although there was some insta-love between Lucy and Nicholas, I loved their chemistry and childhood backstory. Their rekindled relationship thoroughly entertained and kept me turning the pages. I sometimes wished the plot would slow down and flesh out certain issues, but overall, the novel was well-written.

Road to Rosewood by Ashtyn Newbold is the first book I have read by this author, and I am eager to read more by her. This novel does not include a faith element, but will likely appeal to readers who enjoy clean and/or Christian fiction. It is a lovely choice for anyone desiring a light, entertaining romance.
