Today’s book review features
Enchanting the Heiress by Kristi Ann Hunter.
Harriet Hancock likes to make the lives of those around her better whether they like it or not. So, she is surprised when her friend Sophia Whitworth has ideas of her own on how to make Harriet happier–by throwing her together with Sophia’s brother, stable hand Jonas Fitzroy. When Harriet discovers his natural way with words, she hatches a plan that would benefit them both.
Holding a grudge against Harriet for her meddling in Sophia’s life, it is only because of his sister that Jonas agrees to approach Harriet about a possible artistic project. What he doesn’t expect is for her to request his help writing a book.
As they work together, they start to see each other in a different light, but when the truth of Harriet’s schemes is revealed, she’ll find her good intentions for once have gone too far.

Enchanting the Heiress by Kristi Ann Hunter is the third book in her Hearts on the Heath series.
I’m not usually a Regency Romance fan, but I read the previous two books in the series and particularly enjoyed the second one, so I wanted to read the third. I love that horses were still a part of the story and I could appreciate Jonas wanting to be left alone in the job he held. Perhaps that’s why the arc changes felt more uneven since Harriet’s changes required so much more inner work, especially toward the end.
Overall, I liked the story and the middle kept me reading, but the beginning and ending were … drawn out. I struggled to remember why I liked Jonas’ sister, but I liked Jonas’ brother-in-law even more in this book. Jonas was a great hero, I thought, so I’m glad I read his story.
