This book absolutely perked me up when life held me down.
Down on luck stick in a loveless marriage with 3 sisters and twin children as her responsibility, Ari had almost given up when Lady Luck shone on her. She soon found herself titled with money and a sprawling estate in a village at Norfolk.
My first book by author Liz Hurley, the book downright cheered me up. The author’s writing had the beauty and warmth of the first sunshine in spring where everything felt new. I loved Ari, she was everything a main character ought to be. Her love for her kids and sisters was beautifully reflected off the words chosen in the prose.
Life was tough, but then it turned a 180 and made her a Lady with riches to boot. I liked how she dealt with the circumstances in her life life. I loved cheering her on through the good times and bad. She was strong and smart, beautiful and loving, everything I want to be. (sadly to say, I am quite wicked)
Delightful characters, engaging prose, heart warming emotions with humor and a tinge of romance made this one of my best reads.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

What happens after all your dreams come true?
Ariana Byrne knows how to survive. After becoming guardian to her four little sisters after their parents died when she was only eighteen, she had to grow up quickly. Now she’s in her twenties, stuck in a loveless marriage to Greg, trying to make ends meet for her young twins, William and Leo.
So when Ari is told that she’s actually the Right Honourable Lady de Foix, Countess of Hiverton, owner of a sprawling estate in the village of Saxburgh in Norfolk, her first instinct is laughter. Surely the girl who has to choose between food and keeping the lights on isn’t really rich beyond her wildest dreams? She knows how to take care of her sisters and her children, but how on earth can Ari take care of an entire village? Can she fight off the circling land developers from Saxburgh, and stop her in-laws from grabbing all the money for themselves?
And while she’s struggling to settle in and settle down, she’s making new friends and new mistakes. Trusting her gorgeous neighbour, Sebastian Flint-Hyssop, may be the biggest one of all…
She’s swapped sink estate for country estate…but can a girl from inner city London learn how to become a Lady?
