What a fun read! This young adult book should actually be a CERTAIN CHOICE for your reading library! Judy has written quite a few books, but this is the first I have read. I really enjoyed it. Super easy read, great characters that you fall in love with and an interesting plot line full of intrigue.
Lady Rosemarie has been promised, by her long passed on parents, to become a nun when she turns 18. One month before her birthday, a clause is found stating that she has a chance to avoid it if she can find true love and marry before her 18th birthday. Of course, we then have a season of “The Bachelor” throughout the book (: She must decide what it is God really wants her to do and what is the wisest decision for her people.
Like I said, it was a wonderful book. It did get a bit confusing because it was written in the 1st person, but then it would switch characters (that were also written in 1st person). It wasn’t too hard to figure out, but it came with no warning and took a good paragraph to un-confuse* myself. ha ha

Judy wrote a prequel, The Vow, (and it’s only $1.99!!) that I have not gotten to yet, but knowing about it makes more sense about the characters that kept getting mentioned in the book. I didn’t know who they were! So, pick up a copy of both books, grab a nice cup of coffee, sit back, relax and read this great little book(s).
Thanks, netgalley, for this great read. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!
