Katie’s ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ REVIEW:
A Rebel at Pennington’s (Pennington’s #2)
By Rachel Brimble
Reviewed on behalf of 3 Degrees of Fiction Book Blog
A Rebel at Pennington’s was another wonderful historical romance read by Rachel Brimble. I really like the way the author describes everything in her stories with such detail. Everything I read is vivid in my mind as if I am watching a British period drama. Although this is the second book in the Pennington’s series it could easily be read as a standalone, however I would also highly recommend book 1 also.
I loved the main characters in the story, especially Esther. She was a strong, independent woman and I really enjoyed reading about her. She wasn’t afraid to stand up for what she believed even if that meant losing her family.
I really liked Lawrence, he may be wealthy but he has worked hard to get to this point in his life. I think I knew when Esther and Lawrence first met that they would make the perfect couple but there were reservations from both sides which I could totally understand.
A really enjoyable read and I am looking forward to reading more from this series and this author in the future.
