A Suitable Affair, book 1 in The Macalisters series, was a really great historical romance read. I haven’t read anything by this author before and I really liked her writing style. The story was detailed and I really liked the characters. There were some good twists and turns in the story too which kept me fully invested in what was happening.
Susanna was a great female lead. I did feel sorry for her at times; she was desperate to find the love that she had always heard stories about but due to family influences was destined to marry someone she definitely didn’t want to. I think this was probably very fitting for the ear that they story was set in so I liked that Susanna had a little determination about her. She deserved to find somebody she loved and who loved her in return.
When Ian first comes into the story I thought he would be perfect for Susanna, he was a nice character but also so frustrating at times! They did seem to have this genuine connection which I loved.
There were some great secondary characters in the story too and I hope they get their own story!
