More than just make-believe
Librarian Phoebe O’Dunn deals in stories, but her passion for history has taught her that happy endings are rare. Her life in Knights Bridge, Massachusetts, is safe and uneventful…until she discovers the hidden room.
Among its secrets is a cache of vintage clothing, including a spectacular gown—perfect for a gala masquerade in Boston. In the guise of a princess, Phoebe is captivated by a handsome swashbuckler who’s also adopted a more daring persona. Noah Kendrick’s wealth has made him wary, especially of women: everybody wants something.
When Noah and Phoebe meet again in Knights Bridge, at first neither recognizes the other. And neither one is sure they can trust the magic of the night they shared—until an unexpected threat prompts them to unmask their truest selves.
After all, it takes more than just the right costume to live out your personal fairy tale. It takes heart…and the courage to be more than you ever dreamed.
On the whole the group enjoyed this book. The biggest comment was that there were a lot of characters, which isn’t unusual in series like this one. The hero and heroine were well defined, but there wasn’t as much interaction between the two as we would have liked to see. It seemed like the majority of the novel was the two of them working out their issues on their own. In all, this was a cute, light read and we rated the book 5.5 out of 10.
