BLOG TOUR - Lakeshire Park

Debut novelist Megan Walker tours the blogosphere April 6 through May 1, 2020 to share her new historical romance, Lakeshire Park. Forty popular book bloggers specializing in historical romance, inspirational fiction, and Austenesque fiction will feature guest blogs, interviews, exclusive excerpts, and book reviews of this acclaimed Regency romance novel. 


Brighton, England 1820

Amelia Moore wants only one thing--to secure the future happiness of her younger sister, Clara. With their stepfather's looming death, the two sisters will soon be on their own--without family, a home, or a penny to their names. When an invitation arrives to join a house party at Lakeshire Park, Amelia grasps at the chance. If she can encourage a match between Clara and their host, Sir Ronald, then at least her sister will be taken care of.

Little does she know that another guest, the arrogant and overconfident Mr. Peter Wood, is after the same goal for his own sister. Amelia and Peter begin a rivalry 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.



“…readers will find it easy to invest in practical, business-minded Amelia as she learns to follow her heart. This gentle love story is a treat.”—Publisher’s Weekly

“An immersive drama…Walker effortlessly amplifies the decorum of Regency England with chic wit and delightful characters.”—Booklist

"Charming, beautifully written, and hopelessly romantic. Sure to be a new favorite."—Julianne Donaldson, best-selling author of Edenbrooke

Amelia Moore has one goal in mind - that of ensuring her younger sister Clara's future. So when attending a house party Amelia does her best to ensure that Clara finds a find match. This is very important to Amelia as their stepfather's impending demise will leave them penniless. So Amelia hopes to bring Clara together with their host, Sir Ronald.

There is someone else vying to match his sister with Sir Ronald, Mr. Peter Wood. If his sister can be soon married to the man, Peter is certain her future will be protected. What ensues is a battle between Peter and Amelia. Whose sister will win? And, in the meantime, will their own hearts be protected?

Amelia and Peter certainly do not see eye to eye from the very start. Furthermore, Peter's sister rubs Amelia the wrong way. However, there is an underlying attraction between Peter and Amelia that quickly finds its way to the surface. There is strong reason, however, that anything that grows from their growing friendship can never be more than that.

Lakeshire Park is a touching story where readers get to seen genuine love evolve. I loved Amelia and Peter together as they always tried to put their siblings first, even if it meant giving up their hope of forever happiness. I love reading stories like this back in a time when house parties threw people together. When close circumstances, bonds of friendship, family responsibility and duty all come together to bring a wonderful result in the end. This is my first book by Megan Walker at was truly an excellent read.

Many thanks to Shadow Mountain and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.

Megan Walker was raised on a berry farm in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, where her imagination took her to times past and worlds away. While earning her degree in Early Childhood Education, she married her one true love and started a family. But her imaginings of Regency England wouldn't leave her alone, so she picked up a pen and wrote her first novella, A Beautiful Love: A Regency Fairy Tale Retelling which was published in 2019. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband and three children. Lakeshire Park is her debut novel.
