REVIEW: Whispered Kisses by Sarah Johnson

Received a print copy from winning a Facebook contest. I was gifted a kindle copy for my birthday months ago. I'm enjoying re-reading and reviewing it. 

Book Blurb: Elizabeth Bennet is a romantic at heart—a dreamer and a writer. While in London, she begins receiving flowers anonymously. Her romantic sensibilities are heightened, leading her mind to create an image of who the giver could be. She soon returns to her home in Hertfordshire with only her memories and thoughts as her constant companions. Months go by without anything, and then, with the news of a visitor to the neighborhood, she once again receives a posy of flowers just before the neighborhood Assembly. Will her romantic dreams of the gentleman’s character tell a true tale or just leave her heart reeling for a love only possible in her fantasies?

The Review: So after going back and re-reading this novella for the second time I can honestly say that I still love it. I so enjoy how Elizabeth kept trying to find out the name of the flower and couldn't get anywhere with it because Darcy's mother had bred the flower herself. I like how Wickham wasn't a bad person in this story, he honestly fell in love with Georgiana and wanted to marry her. The only snag in their plans was that Darcy told him no without even hearing them out. It's sad that she ended up dying of scarlet fever and in their grief both of them blamed the other. A happy resolution was struck between them with Darcy paying for Wickham to go back to school. And of course you know that Elizabeth and Darcy ended up together how could they not?

I recommend if you enjoy a sweet little romance novella go pick this one up. You will not be disappointed. I'll even  make it easy for you and provide the Amazon link.
