This is the last book in the Hellions of Halstead Hall series by Sabrina Jeffries. After Celia has watched her four older siblings fall in love, and give into her Grandmothers ultimatum one by one and get married, she knows its down to her. She must get married before the year is up, or she and her brothers and sisters will be disinherited. However Celia has a plan, and she needs Mr Pinters help. The only problem? He has always disapproved of her and her hellion like ways, and never lets a chance to show his disapproval go by, which, as he has been looking into the mystery of her parents murder for the last year, if often.
This was a beautiful story. The last book in the series, especailly when the series is about a very close group like siblings, always has high expectation, and can find it very hard to live up to these. However this book managed almost perfectly: there was just enough back story between Celia and Pinter for the reader to know exactly what we want to happen, but not too much that we know what is going to happen, and there are alot of twists and turns before the happy ending in this book! The characters of Celia and Pinter were warm and very believable, both with their own insecurities and secrets, and any private scenes between them had enough sparks to light up all of Halstead hall!
Definately would advise reading, it stands up well on its own, but to get the full back story of Celia and Pinter, as well as that of her siblings and their partners, who feature in this book, I would encourage reading the whole series in order (The Truth About Lord Stoneville (Hellions of Halstead Hall)
, A Hellion in Her Bed (Hellions of Halstead Hall)
, How to Woo a Reluctant Lady (The Hellions of Halstead Hall)
, and To Wed a Wild Lord (The Hellions of Halstead Hall)
), you won't regret it!
