Book Description:

England, 1820

Rosalind Newbury is counting down the days until her wedding to the Duke of Marlow, a man she has only met twice. The marriage is more an agreement between two families and less a romantic connection between two hearts, but Rosalind becoming a duchess will elevate her family’s status to dizzying heights. And the duke is a kind man who will care for Rosalind, even if he doesn’t love her.

She only has three weeks before her life changes forever, and she knows exactly how she wants to spend her days. As a child, Ros was inspired by her adventurous Aunt Alice and created a list of ten things to do before her wedding day. So far, Ros has done none of them.

She is determined to tackle each item, though she’ll have to accomplish them all in secret. After all, a soon-to-be-duchess is not usually allowed to bury treasure in the pasture, eat sweets all day, or learn how to swim. She enlists the help of her best friend, Liza, who brings along her cousin, Charlie, a prodigal son-turned-boxer who has come to the countryside to mend his reputation and learn how to be his father’s heir.

Together, the three of them work to complete the list, and as each item is crossed off, an unlikely friendship blossoms between Ros and Charlie. The more time they spend together, the more Ros falls in love with this imperfect man and his good heart.

I love books that take me to a happy place, and Miss Newbury’s List certainly did that.
The heroine achieved the most coveted prize of the marriage mart – a betrothal to a Duke but did not experience a London season. So she decided to live life a little for the few weeks remaining before her wedding, simple, innocent things like learning to swim or filling herself with cake. While doing that, she met the hero.

They had no expectations of each other, their connection developed slowly but surely, and it was a delight to read.

Another great book by this author! I’m looking forward to reading her next one.
BTW, I got curious about the duke, despite his obliging bad behavior (lol). I hope he gets a book of his own and redeems himself.

Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

About the Author:

Megan Walker was raised on a berry farm in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, where her imagination took her to times past and worlds away. While earning her degree in Early Childhood Education, she married her one true love and started a family. But her imaginings of Regency England wouldn’t leave her alone, so she picked up a pen and wrote her first novel, A Beautiful Love: A Regency Fairy Tale Retelling which was published in 2019. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband and three children.
