Amelia Moore is worried about her and her sister’s future. With their stepfather’s looming death, she knows they’ll soon be on their own—without an inheritance, home, or penny to their names. When an invitation arrives to join a house party at Lakeshire Park, Amelia is eager to encourage a match between her sister, Clara, and Sir Ronald. At least then, she’ll know her sister will be taken care of.
Little does she know that another guest, Mr. Peter Wood, is after the same goal for his sister. Starting with a quarrel over a glove, Amelia and Peter begin a rivalry—one that Amelia has no choice but to win. But competing against Peter—and eventually playing by his rules—makes Amelia vulnerable to losing the only thing she has left to claim—her heart.

Review by Kristin Jackson
In Lakeshire Park, Amelia is desperate to get her sister married before her stepfather dies and leaves them with nothing. When Sir Ronald hosts a house party, Amelia matches wits with Peter Wood in a story filled with the kind of witty conversation and clever ruses so characteristic of Regency romance. You’ll find your world fading away as you imagine yourself exchanging quips with a handsome, unattainable gentleman—and you’ll delight at what it leads to.
I read Lakeshire Park in one sitting. Now I look forward to reading it several more times at a leisurely pace so I can enjoy what’s happening on the sidelines even more because I know how everything turns out. If you enjoy reading Georgette Heyer or Jane Austen, you’ll love this book!
Review by Jennifer Hutchins
I just read Lakeshire Park by Megan Walker—and it was so good, I read it in one sitting!
I don’t read a lot of romance, but this book hit all the right notes for me—tension, swooning, a bit of drama, and a happily ever after. And its unusually rich substance made the ending all the more satisfying.
If you like romance, you’ll love this book. But you’ll also love it if you’re looking for a romantic story that isn’t sickly sweet. Lakeshire Park strikes a great balance between humor and romance without being too sappy. A great read!
