Escape to Everly Manor by Chalon Linton



Nineteen-year-old Lizzy and her young brother, Thomas, find themselves orphaned after a tragic accident claims the lives of their parents. Their estranged Uncle Cline arrives to claim his inheritance, and his roguish ways cast a shadow over the manor. Both the family estate and guardianship of his niece and nephew were left to him, and diabolical Uncle Cline is determined to indulge in his newfound wealth and rid himself of his charges. Desperate to save her brother from a dangerous life at sea, and herself from being married off to a detestable old gentleman, Lizzy knows there is only one choice left—they must run.
Lizzy and Thomas sneak away and find refuge in an abandoned cabin. There they remain hidden until fate acquaints Lizzy with Mr. Barton, a charming gentleman who is immediately intrigued by the mysterious young woman. Concealing her identity, Lizzy is unaware that there is much more to this compassionate man than meets the eye. Through his kindness to herself and her brother, Lizzy begins to trust him. Soon Lizzy realizes Mr. Barton may be her best hope for a life in which she can live—and love—as she chooses .


I thought this book was interesting!! 
It's also considered Recency Romance if you like that sort of thing. I didn't until I picked up a few and this one was no exception. 
I love the fierce loyalty that Lizzie and Thomas had for each other. And dedication. Too often, most siblings want to quarrel because ine is so acraid that they're not going to get what the other one has. Or too afraid one parent will love one more than the other. I missed out on that. I'd love to have a sibling. Sometimes being an only child is lonely.
Trust is the theme here. It's so very hard to trust these days. Except that there is One whom we can trust. I trust Him with all my heart do you?
This is a great story for those who love recency romance. Not my cup of tea but I liked the cover so I wanted to see what the girl on the front cover was running from. Now I know but I'm not saying anything because I don't want to give anything away.
I think Mr. Everly is my favorite character. I love his kind and compassionate ways and wanting to help people if you will. I also like the way the author described him in this book. So I can imagine him being handsome. 
Lizzie is determined. I think I'll use this word. It describes her perfectly. I like that she wants to protect. 
Thomas is delightful!! Full of energy and an eagerness to want to help. And my!! So full of energy!! I wish I was that young again. I think Thomas gives this story character. I say this because of his youth. And his personality.
I thought it was ok but as I said Thomas is what made this story. Y'all will just have to read this book to find out why!!
I still strongly recommend this book. Especially for people who live Recency romance.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley with no compensations received. All opinions are my own


Chalon LintonChalon Linton was first introduced to Jane Austen by a dear friend and now she can’t get enough of handsome men in tailcoats. Her intrigue in the genre stems from a nostalgic longing for manners, wit, and true love. Fortunately, Chalon found her dashing gentleman, married him, and now lives happily ever after in Southern California.
