A Stage for Harriet by Mary-Celeste Ricks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Harriett has been in love with her neighbor and best friend for a very long time. The differences in their status are pointed out by Stephan's mother. She runs away to become a governess to protect her broken heart, and give Stephan a chance to find an appropriate woman without her being around to see it happening.
Fortunately, this is the beginning of Stephan and Harriet's story. The story is sweet and the characters delightful. There were humorous instances and unexpected plot points. I wanted to cheer for Virginia, Harriet, Stephan, and a sailor named Ralph. In their own way, each of the characters was worthy of my esteem and hope for a happily ever after.
This is a sweet romance that was a lot of fun to read. I received a complimentary copy. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own opinion.
