Miss Wiltons Waltz A Proper Romance #5Ege and leaving behind the role I felt trapped in opened up a refreshing sense of freedom to be happy with myself and all the opportunities before me I admired Lenora s fortitude with the daunting situations and people she had to deal with Catherine is not the typical orphan from stories like these instead of being filled with gratitude she is manipulative cruel and uncaring I felt like it was a realistic portrayal of an abused child and it was gratifying to see her layers peeled back as Aiden doesn t give up on her but is determined to Aiden doesn t give up on her but is determined to her in any way possible Lenora s reactions to Catherine were realistic as well and depicted the real struggle and sacrifice it took to be a part of her recovery and success I loved Lenora s aunt and the compassion nurturing and wisdom she brought to both Lenora and Catherine s lives The sweet and tender romance between Lenora and Aiden is worth fighting for and I was filled with tension and anticipation until Lenora reached her happily ever afterI received a complimentary copy of the book all opinions in this review are my own Edited to add I ve read the others now and can confirm that you don t need to read them to understand this one The previous The Vicar s Daughter is the worst of the series and I suggest skipping it even though it introduces LenoraThis is fourth in a series but I t read the skipping it even though it introduces LenoraThis is fourth in a series but I haven read the and didn t feel the lack I mean it was clear that Lenora is suffering fallout from a previous novel but I had all the details I needed including emotional impactI started this book relatively late thinking I d just start a bit and pick it up again some time tomorrow And then couldn t put it down until waaaay too lateearly the next morning I have no regretsI normally have little patience for withdrawn people who consciously guard their solitude as heroes of books Which is ironic because I m all about that in real life being an introverted head of a family of introverts The thing is that s often a plot iller because it s hard for authors to dodge the negative motivation sinkhole with such characters I m happy to say that Josi Kilpack showed how to turn it around and make it a strength of the novel with Lenora We see her need and we see her struggle to be strong and her willingness to work around her own limitations And I found it engaging to be with her in both her successes and failuresI ll admit it doesn t hurt that she s working with and sometimes against Aiden He s all inds of awesome and I love how invested he is with his troublesome niece Catherine and how desperate he is to find a way to help her get what she needsB. Eedom and independence of her new life there When Lenora meets Aiden Asher she finds herself attracted to him but her unexpected feelings become complicated when she learns that Catherine Lenora’s newest and most troublesome student in the school is Mr Asher’s niece Catherine is a difficult student and Lenora works hard to make progress with the girl When the chemistry between Lenora and Aiden increases they. Ut what icked this up a notch into outstanding territory was how deftly Kilpack works in the importance of family and forgiveness and faith and trust and fighting for what you want even as you take the needs of others into account as well The most interesting moral uestions aren t right vs wrong but when two goodmoral principles stand in opposition and I moral uestions aren t right vs wrong but when two goodmoral principles stand in opposition and I enjoyed being with these very human people trying hard to do their best navigating some tricky watersThe only semi sour note is that I didn t uite buy some of Catherine s actions there were a couple of times where she was a little too good at being bad and her schemes a little to perfect in their success But that s a very small niggle in an otherwise truly outstanding story And given how perfect I found the ending and how Kilpack avoided making victory easy or even complete I think this remains in solid five star territory Yeah I ll be tired tomorrow but it was so totally worth itOkay two sour notes when I note that Shadow Mountain has the same overpricing strategy that Covenant does for their ebooks I can t say how sorry I am to see worthy books priced out of reaching the audience I feel they deserveA note about Chaste This book reminds me of how natural a chaste story is for this period Lenora and Aiden have a couple of isses but nothing than that and it felt both natural and expected Negative Motivations I ind of hate that the term negative motivation isn t widespread yet Since it isn t I m going to save off this little jag to append to my reviews that feature the term Jennifer Crusie blogged about it a bit back and it changed how I understand story The problem with the term is that if you ve never heard it before you d assume it meant motivations that are harmful or immoral Not so What it refers to is motivations not to do something The thing is that many of us are motivated to not do things for a lot of different perfectly valid and reasonable things for a lot of different perfectly valid and reasonable The problem is that in a story motivations to not do things are a huge drag on the plot particularly considering the fact *that most negative motivations are overcome by the character simply deciding they don t care *most negative motivations are overcome by the character simply deciding they don t care or rather that they do care and are now motivated to do the thing So not only do you have a counter to action but you also have a situation where to overcome it all a character has to do is change their mind Which means eventually the reader is rooting for the character to get over himherself already and do the thing we want them to do Conflict drives story Conflict between a reader and a main character drives readers away from story.
