A New Beginning by Rose Pearson

I first read The Duke’s Daughters series by Rose Pearson and loved those. When I found The Spinster’s Guild (which starts with A New Beginning), well, I had to read it. The books are relatively short so I could read these very fast.

A quote from A New Beginning by Rose Pearson

Emily Taylor is a new debutante, whose father arranges her marriage to the aged Marquess of Smithson. She determines that she can not marry him so Emily tries to get Lord Havisham, someone whom she has become friendly, to run away with her. Lord Havisham refuses and therefore, Emily marries against her wishes.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In A New Beginning, Lady Emily deals with the rumors surrounding her. What happens when she runs into Lord Havisham? What do Miss Bavidge and Miss Crosby want with Lady Emily? Read to find out the formation of the Spinster’s Guild.


This is an unusual historical romance as it mostly sets up the remaining books. Don’t go into this expecting that the couple featured will end up together in this one. But never fear their story runs throughout the rest of the series. This is on Kindle Unlimited, both as an individual book as well as a box set.

My plan for 2022 is to write three blog posts a week- one about a fantasy book, one about a mystery book, and one about a romance book (with some posts about series thrown in). This one is a romance so if you’re a romance lover, then you’ll want to check it out!
