The Valet’s Secret by Josi S. Kilpack 

This is a very cute, simple and straightforward old romance. It is a quick read with nothing to say against it. You will get exactly what you wanted if you pick it up, expecting the descriptions I began the review.
Our lead protagonists are two individuals who have reached a stage in life that they should have been living for themselves, but fate has other plans for them. Kenneth Winterton has been named the heir to his uncle’s Earldom. All he wants to do is keep horses and live out his life like a retired gentleman. Rebecca is a widow doing the work her father puts his name on. The process was quite interesting and new to me.
They meet by chance on the side of the road, and their first interaction should have seemed odd, but given their respective mental states, it kind of made sense! I just wish the blurb on Goodreads didn’t tell the whole story, leaving something to explore and discover.
There are a few unexpected complications in the plotline, but we know things will sort themselves out, and they do just that.
I have nothing bad to say about the book. It is a quick read and has its heavier moments while making sure of the happily ever after.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
