Cecilia Goodhue is a schoolteacher with a past, living with her sister and her husband in a tiny English village. Resigned to a quiet life, Cecilia is surprised when she finds out that her young cousin has run off with a man of no means.
Cecilia had once been a teenaged girl who also fell for a young man’s charms—only to be devastated by his betrayal. Determined to not let her cousin meet the same fate, she heads off to London to but is shocked when her investigation leads her right to the front door of the very man who broke her heart: Theo Hudson.
Together, they reluctantly embark on finding her cousin and returning her to her family. During their searching in London, it soon becomes clear that they both remember their short-lived romance differently and perhaps now, years later, they have a fresh chance at love.
I quickly became engrossed in the story as things moved at a good pace. It was interesting to see Cecilia so determined to help her cousin. After learning about her past I could definitely understand her desire to become involved. Due to the short length of the story there isn't a lot of time to develop the characters. However I did feel that I got to know them well enough to enjoy the story.
The plot moved quickly so there were no slow parts. I found Cecilia and Theo's interactions with each other to be entertaining. By the end I really hoped that things would be resolved between them.
If you just want to sit back and relax than this easy and light hearted story is perfect!
Miss Goodhue Lives For A Night is a fun and enjoyable book!
Four stars from me!
