Review of Lady Sophie's Christmas Wish

Lady Sophia's Christmas Wish
Grace Burrowes
Sourcebooks Casablanca
ISBN 9781402261541

   Lady Sophie has managed to set herself up with a few days of peace and quiet all to herself at the ducal mansion in London. Even though she is not supposed to be alone, she out maneuvered her family in an attempt to have time to herself before she is supposed to join her family in Kent for the holidays. With an intense snow storm arising, she finds herself saddled with an abandoned baby and no idea how to care for him. A handsome stranger encounters her and ends up being the only thing between her and certain disaster as far as the child is concerned.
   Vim Charpentier is headed to his estate where his aunt and uncle live when he encounters Sophie. His attraction for Sophie grows; but he is not prepared to offer her anything because she has not been completely honest about her station in life. Sophie's brothers arrive and whisk her off to their home in Kent. In the process, Vim discovers who and where she comes from, and a former holiday nightmare resurfaces to haunt him. In amidst the turmoil,  will Sophie's Christmas wish come true?
   This is a wonderful historical romance. The storyline is well developed and flows smoothly from the beginning to the end. Sophie is a delightfully charming woman who is straight forward and innocent in her dealings with Vim. She is described as being level headed, consequently no one in the family thinks she will do anything untoward. Vim steels his heart because he doesn't want to leave himself vulnerable again. The big question, can he can save his heart from Sophie and "Lord Baby." The story is humorous and makes for a wonderful holiday read. I highly recommend this book to historical fiction fans, as well as, anyone looking for  a good read. Curl up with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the ride  with Sophie, Vim and "Lord Baby." You won't be disappointed.
   I wish to thank Sourcebooks for providing me with a copy to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. I was not compensated in anyway except for receiving a copy for reading and reviewing purposes.

I give Lady Sophie's Christmas Wish 5 out of 5 stars
