Book Review: Forever and a Day

Roderick Gideon Tremayne, the recently appointed Duke of Wentworth, never expected to find himself in New York City, tracking down a mysterious map important to his late mother. And he certainly never expected to be injured, only to wake up with no memory of who he is. But when he sees the fiery-haired beauty who's taken it upon herself to rescue him, suddenly his memory is the last thing on his mind.

Georgia Milton, the young head of New York's notorious Forty Thieves, feels responsible for the man who was trying to save her bag from a thief. But she's not prepared for the fierce passion he ignites within her. When his memory begins to return, her whole world is threatened, and Roderick must choose between the life he forgot and the life he never knew existed.

This is a take on the classic Prince and the Pauper with a twist.  And the twist being of course that the pauper is a woman with a huge heart.  Yet even though this storyline has been done before, the characters themselves make it feel all so fresh.  

Georgia is an Irish spitfire who is hard as nails in some ways.  With her upbringing and where she lives it is a wonder just how large a heart she has.  Since she feels responsible for Roderick, or Robinson  since that is the only name he remembers, she opens up her home to him until either his family finds him or he regains his memory.  It is Georgia who makes this whole book come alive.

I really enjoyed FOREVER AND A DAY and would recommend it to any reader of historical fiction though I will insert a gentle warning that there are some minor editing errors.  Because of those I am only rating this book a 3.5.

***I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
