The Lady Traveler’s Guide To Happily Ever After by Victoria Alexander



Violet and James got married because he kissed her at his engagement ball to another person, however she decides that she never wants to see him again when she overhears him discussing how the marriage was a mistake and he wants them to go back to leading their normal lives the day after the weeding. A promise he keeps for 6 years

In that time she travels the world, has some amazing experiences and makes some lifelong friends, some of which you get to meet as the story progresses. James on the other hand grows up, stops playing around and he learns from his uncle Richard, the current Earl, and the person James will inherit from eventually

When uncle Richard dies his will forces them back together. They must live together for 3 years, make public appearances and not cause any negative scandals,  otherwise Jame’s will inherit only the absolute minimum for his title and none of the houses he grew up in

They agree to follow the terms of the will but must work out how to actually live together and spend time together! Violet is a fan of very early morning horse rides in the park, James not so much but he quickly adapts (and eventually enjoys them!)

I like both Violet and James even though at times they both drove me mad! Their motivations are the same even though they don’t actually believe or realise it for a long time. The reader gets a lot of information from both Violet and James’ narratives very early on and feels like a bit of a secret keeper which makes their discoveries more interesting

Violet isn’t your traditional society lady, although she may have started that way, and she rapidly develops into someone incredibly sophisticated and well traveled, which I really enjoyed

Victoria Alexander’s writing is absolutely wonderful and she pulled me in right from the start to the extent that I didn’t want to put it down! The story is fast paced and there are plenty of twists and turns to keep the readers (and the characters) on their toes!

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a slightly unconventional  historical romance which will make you laugh and keep you on your toes
