Review:  I love a short read when I have been reading some heavier material, so this novella really hit the spot. It was absolutely perfect, which is really hard to do when you are trying to fit a good story into about 90ish pages, but Cassandra Dean did just that.

Lady Alexandra is at Waithe Hall to investigate ghosts, only she found Maxim who was her childhood friend when she gets there. Maxim has lost his memory when he was shipwrecked.

As he spends time with Alexandra his memory starts to return. Maxim starts remembering her and he starts falling for Alexandra too.

First let me say, Maxim = 💕 .  If I were the type of person to have book boyfriends, Maxim would definitely be it. He's very flawed. I'm guessing through some of the things alluded to in the story that Maxim is dyslexic. However dyslexia wasn't first recognized until 1896, which makes my heart break even more for Maxim.

Lady Alexandra is wonderful too. She's smart and quirky and its so obvious that this is really a friends to lovers story in the best way possible. I also love that Alexandra's friendship builds Maxim up.

I fell in love with this story instantly. It was short sweet and and just up my alley. This is a book you shouldn't pass up.

I can't wait to read more of Cassandra's stories.
