Starving Hearts by Janine Mendenhall - Review and Giveaway

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. 

Published: May 16, 2016
Number of pages: 300
Genre: Historical Fiction
Series: Triangular Trade Trilogy #1

Since her assault, Miss Annette Chetwynd has been plagued by nightmares and worries about an arranged marriage.

She yearns to find her anonymous rescuer. Unfortunately, her health and intellect prevent it. Both repel suitors and cause Annette to doubt God's existence, at least until He answers her prayers in an unusual way. . . .

Mr. Peter Adsley is joining the clergy, and he desires a godly wife by his side. After a failed attempt to obtain one, he engages in a clandestine meeting with the bewitching young woman who keeps crossing his path. But she is so unsettling.

Destined for disappointments, Peter and Annette both endure disgraceful situations. Will Peter's faith sustain him through overwhelming setbacks? Can Annette overcome her doubts? Or will their starving hearts yield to the machinations of a mad man?

What did I think of this book:
This is the first book in a new trilogy that I was happy to start. I felt like she did a good job in devolping the characters. I am looking forward to getting to know each of them better. This book reminds me of Jane Austen's books. There is romance as well as a few twists and turns in this book so you get a little of everything. This book moves along quite nicely and we get to travel to multiple countries. The main character goes through so many emotions from a tragic event to finding happiness. I liked following the characters along through their journey. An interesting book. If you are a fan of Jane Austen or Downton Abbey then I think  you will enjoy this book.
