{Book Review} The Rose of Winslow Street by Elizabeth Camden

The Rose of Winslow StreetMy Review:
A charming read!

I started this one a while ago and I am glad I had the time to go back and finish it. I have heard many good things about Camden's novels and I'm happy to report that The Rose of Winslow Street met my expectations. I was so enthralled in the story that time literally flew past as I was reading. The beautiful little town of Colden is idyllic.

There were many times I questioned how Camden would tie up all the strings. I wondered how two people could fall for each other in the midst of such hate. I didn't know how the story could end happily, and then... You'll have to read the book to find out. I'm duly impressed. I will definitely be looking into Camden's other books!

If you enjoy delightful romances with a high amount of conflict and impossibility, then you'll enjoy this one. As for content, I recommend 15 and up.

I purchased this book, no review required. :-)

Back Cover:
The last thing Libby Sawyer and her father expected upon their return from their summer home was to find strangers inhabiting a house that had been in their family for decades. Widower Michael Dobrescu brought his family from Romania to the town of Colden, Massachusetts with a singular purpose: to claim the house willed to him long ago. Since neither party has any intention of giving up their claim, a fierce legal battle ensues between the two families.

When important documents go missing from the house, Libby suspects Michael is the culprit. Determined to discover the truth behind the stolen papers, Libby investigates, only to find more layers of mystery surrounding Michael and his family. Despite their rivalry, Libby finds herself developing feelings for this man with the mysterious past.

As a decision about the house looms in the courts, Libby must weigh the risks of choosing to remain loyal to her family or give her heart to a man whose intentions and affections are less than certain.


  1. This has been my least favorite from Camden - glad you liked it so well! If you have a similar reaction to my experience with Elizabeth's writing, you'll LOVE her other two novels, Rosie.

    Happy reading!

  2. I really enjoyed this book but I liked Elizabeth's other two even more! Just make sure you read The Lady of Bolton Hill before you read Against the Tide because Against the Tide is the continuing story of one of the characters from The Lady of Bolton Hill. I'm sure you'll enjoy both of them! I am very excited for her new novel coming out next month - Into the Whirlwind :)
    Great review!
