Arabella is a charming and delightful story. Right at the start we meet Arabella and her spirited and lively family. I fell in love with all of them, and there are quite a few. The “season” will be starting soon in London, and it is very much hoped that Arabella’s godmother will invite Arabella to her home and assist her in every way possible for her coming out. Arabella being from a large family and her father the Vicar, money is a concern. However, Mother has been planning for a long time. The invitation from the godmother arrives, preparations are made, and Arabella is off to London for the season.
On the journey to London, Arabella, meets Robert Beaumaris, when her carriage breaks down and she is stranded near his hunting lodge. He invites her into his lodge and entertains her whilst the carriage is repaired. You guessed it! He’s rich! Really rich! She lies and informs Robert Beaumaris she is an heiress. Well! Before you know it, she is the talk of London. Arabella is an heiress. This is quite a story. Mr. Beaumaris isn’t easily deceived. He’s a great guy! I liked him.
This book is for anyone who would like to read a fun and likable story! Arabella isn’t the swooning type, and she doesn’t get the vapors, however, she is tender-hearted and impetuous. The author whisks the reader off to London on a great adventure. Highly recommend!
