Book Review: An Engagement Of Sorts by Alene Wecker

I found this ARC on Netgallery for a review.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s a slow burn romance with some great humor.

I didn’t think I would like Anne or Thomas, but both of them stole my heart. Their romance was sweet and it made my heart warm.


I love that it is all told in Anne’s point of view. That’s my favorite kind of romance. It keeps you guessing about what the man is thinking. She shows nice development over the course of the narrative.


The back of the book tells you what is fact and what is fiction. It’s interesting the author chose to write about some of her own ancestors. The author paid special attention to the historical details, and you can see the research that went into this.


The story and the humor reminded me of Georgette Heyer, which may be why I loved it so much.


I couldn’t put this book down! After I read it I looked up the author and found this was her debut novel! I hope I see more from Alene Wecker in the future.
