Book Review: The Fall of Lord Drayson

The Fall of Lord Drayson (Tanglewood, #1)
Goodreads Summary
Who is he really? A high and mighty lord or a lowly servant?

When Colin Cavendish, the new earl of Drayson, informs Lucy Beresford that she and her mother need to vacate the house they've called home for the past two years, Lucy is fit to be tied. They have no money, no relations they can turn to for help, and nowhere to go. How dare the earl break the promise his father had made to the Beresfords without so much as a twinge of conscience?

Fate plays her hand when Lucy discovers the earl unconscious and injured in the middle of the road. When he awakens with no recollection of who he is, Lucy seizes the opportunity to teach the earl a much-needed lesson in humility and tells him that he is nothing more than a mere servant. Her servant, in fact. 

And thus begins the charming tale of a pompous lord and an impetuous young woman, caught together in a web so tangled that it begs the question: Will they ever get out?
This was a cute book. I don't think I have read a book where one of the main characters forgot who they were and another character convinced them they were another person. Lucy was a realistic character who is not perfect, but tries hard to fix her mistakes. I also enjoyed the presence of Georgina, Lucy's friend and maid. They had an admirable friendship. While I didn't love Colin when we were first introduced to him, I quickly grew to like him and his family. I liked how the author described the duties Lucy had to do around the house. What would seem like mundane and ordinary tasks turned into fun adventures to read about, especially with Colin helping out. Overall, 4 stars. 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
