A lovely well written entertaining read, as you can always rely on from Kay Seeley. A five star read for me. The characters all come alive in the story. Hopefully there will be another story of The Fitzroy Hotel. Hotel

This is more a mystery than a romantic story.
It all depends on who is the killer. Clara discovers it is easier to give up her baby but she just can't do it.
A coronation, a murder, and a life changing day of passion makes the difference.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley. This in no way affects my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

This was a lovely historical book to read. It was well written and I throughly enjoyed reading about this family. Another new author for me and I will be keeping watch over any other new releases from this author. My thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for giving me the opportunity to read this book in return for an honest review.

One Beat of a Heart is the story of Clara Fitzroy and Daisy Carter. Clara works at the family hotel. One year after the death of Queen Victoria, and the impending coronation, they are hoping for many guests to fill the hotel in order for the family business to prosper after hard times. Clara Fitzroy, unfortunately gets into a little bit of trouble. She will ask Daisy, one of the employees at the Fitzroy Hotel, to help her. Daisy, with hardships of her own, does her best to help Clara, and her own family.

Clara will be forced to make a decision that will alter her life, but will she make the right one. As a result Clara will ask Daisy to do a favor for her, but will she be able to see it through.

This is a wonderful story of second chances. I really liked this story. It was a quick afternoon read. I liked all the characters and as was quickly caught up in this page turning drama.

I enjoyed this book- Daisy was an incredibly sweet character, and although Clara wasn’t exactly likeable, I admired her tenacity and she certainly provided colour to whichever situation she was in!
I thought the Fitzroys were a caring family at their heart and I enjoyed reading about the rather dramatic events at their hotel as they tried to resurrect their lost family fortune. A pleasant read!
