The Cautious Maiden

The Cautious Maiden (The Everstone Chronicles #4)The Cautious Maiden by Dawn Crandall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book #4 in “The Everstone Chronicles” won’t disappoint the romance readers waiting for it. Full of heart-pounding romantic tension, the story unfolds to give some closure to the bad-boy of the Everstone family, Vance. Dawn Crandall did a great job of turning this anti-hero of the first three books into a likable hero with a believable reformation.

Violet Hawthorne’s world has been turned upside down by the death of her parents and the betrayal of her brother. The support of her friends has gotten her through, but now her brother has done something awful. Something dreadfully, terribly awful. Her only hope of escaping with her reputation – and possibly her life – intact is to marry Vance Everstone, a man she knows by his reputation … none of it good.

It’s been well over a year since I’ve read the last book in this series and I wish I would have taken the time to reread it before digging into this one. Backstory is important to this series, so I highly recommend everyone read them in order.
