Today I am doing a pre-release review of Whit Swans New Girl in Town by Annamaria Bazzi. This book is due to be released on Amazon on the 12th of April.
The Blurb: All it takes is a wish upon a star, and Jillian finds herself in a Regency world she only read about in romance novels. She wakes in an exciting world of adventure and challenges but didn’t expect the new life she received. A maid? OMG!
An ambitious girl, she schemes to rise above her station and become a lady with a title and wealth. She’ll go to any lengths to achieve her goals—even risking the anger of her captors, the hazy eyes always gazing down upon the ancient world. Will her attempts to climb the social ladder get her into trouble?
My Review: I was really glad to get the chance to review this book since I have been wanting to know how Kendrika managed with the web feet she got at the end of the last book. This book fills us in on a little more of the place these people find themselves living in. As well we find out more about the mysterious eyes in the sky. A new character is introduced to the mix. Jillian who we find out was seriously ill in the real world is brought in a servant. She has better ideas though and sees no reason why should stay in her place when she can better herself by becoming the duchess. Not heeding the warnings of her companions she finds herself in hot water with the powers that rule this world. Ms. Bazzi leaves us wanting more and waiting to see what becomes of this ambitious girl and whether there is a way back. This would make an excellent series for the young readers out there. I Give the book 5 stars.
