5* Review: Dear Julia – Romy Sommer



Winter Blurb

Rosalie Stanton is a city girl who loves parties and ‘fixing’ people. When she finds a long-lost love letter in a house she’s redecorating she sets off on a quest to find its rightful owner.

Commander William Cavendish has lived as a recluse since his return from the Great War. His peaceful existence is shattered by the return of the letter that once held all his hopes — and by its bearer, the irrepressible Rosalie, who bears an uncanny resemblance to his lost love.

Rosalie is just as determined to fix William and re-introduce him into society as he is determined to resist her. They both might have met their match.

Dear Julia: A Jazz Age Romance

There is a definite air of mystery with this story, which starts with a letter about a missing naval officer and continues when Rosalie finds an unopened letter, as her father’s newly acquired house undergoes renovation.
Rosalie likes to fix things and play the matchmaker, often with unexpected results. This time she seeks the rightful owner of the unopened letter and when she finds William, she is determined to end his hermit like existence.
The attraction between the unlikely couple is slow burning and the build up of sexual tension excellent. Rosalie reminds me of Jane Austen’s Emma. She appears flighty and born to party but there is another side to her, which meeting William reveals with romantic results.
Rosalie embraces the passion when it erupts between her and William, even though it scares her a little. William, ever the gentleman fights his attraction and doesn’t want to tie the social butterfly down but Rosalie knows her own mind and the ending is satisfying.
Like all the Jazz Age Romances, ‘Dear Julia’, captures the ambience of the era between the wars and makes a delightful and unusual story.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
