#Review ~ The Twelfth Night Queen by Rita Bay

The Twelfth Night Queen

Amelia Fontaine had been betrothed to her cousin, Percy Westbury, while she was still in leading strings. When Percy and his family arrive for a long holiday visit, Amelia is dismayed by the prospect of the impending arranged marriage. With his estate in shambles, Percy flaunts his plans to use Fontaine Hall’s wealth to benefit his family’s fortunes. When Percy demands that Amelia end her friendship with her neighbor, Edward Thornton, will she choose to follow tradition or pursue happiness? 

Edward Thornton, the Earl of Bridgwater, couldn’t remember a time he didn’t love Amelia. He didn’t believe her grandmother would insist on an arranged marriage, until the entire Westbury clan invites themselves to Fontaine Hall. When Edward discovers Percy’s secret life and his sinister plans for Amelia, he embarks on a campaign to rescue her. Will the Twelfth Night Queen help him save Amelia from her cruel fate?


A lovely historical with a feisty heroine and loving hero. I enjoyed the story line and how real the characters were. The grandmothers were a hoot. Edward was a love. I truly enjoyed his character as he was noble and fallible in turn. Amelia was a lively young lady who'd grown up adored and wanted to please her family, but not so much that she was willing to turn a blind eye to how her future would unfold if she didn't protest.

The bad guy eventually turned out not so bad at the end either! They were all truly just looking for love.

An enjoyable tale of love and a timeless celebration of Twelfth Night enchants as we meet The Twelfth Night Queen.
