The Vintage Girl
The Vintage Girl - Hester Browne

This was one of the books which Gemma sent to me as part of my last #bloggerbookswap. I got stuck right into it and found it thoroughly easy to read and enjoyable. 

When Evie Nicholson is asked to visit Kettlesheer Castle in Scotland to archive the family heirlooms, she jumps at the chance. Evie's passion for antiques means that, for her, the castle is a treasure trove of mysteries just waiting to be uncovered. But in each heirloom lies a story, and in the course of her investigations Evie stumbles upon some long-buried family secrets. Add handsome, gloomy heir Robert McAndrew and a traditional candlelit gala to the mix, and Evie's heart is sent reeling with an enthusiasm that may just extend beyond the Kettlesheer silver...

The blurb probably says it all. Evie, interested in anything vintage and a hopeless romantic, heads off to Scotland to see what treasures she can unearth in Kettlesheer Castle. During her time there she manages to secure an invitation to the upcoming ball and begins dreaming about how that will go.

Like a lot of books in it's genre, some of the circumstances are a little coincidental, but it's an enjoyable read nonetheless.
