From This Moment Review

Award-Winning Historical Romance from a Noteworthy Talent

Romulus White has tried for years to hire illustrator Stella West for his renowned scientific magazine. She is the missing piece he needs to propel his magazine to the forefront of the industry.

But Stella abruptly quit the art world and moved to Boston with a single purpose: to solve the mysterious death of her beloved sister. Romulus, a man with connections to high society and every important power circle in the city, could be her most valuable ally.

Sparks fly the instant Stella and Romulus join forces, and Romulus soon realizes the strong-willed and charismatic Stella could disrupt his hard-won independence. Can they continue to help each other when their efforts draw the wrong kind of attention from the powers-that-be and put all they've worked for at risk?

From This Moment by Elizabeth Camden is a wonderfully crafted historical novel. It's a delightful blend of mystery and romance, full of colorful characters and a strong message. Both Stella and Romulus ( such a cool name, right?) are great characters. It was great to be able to see growth in both of them throughout the book but have it end in a way that showed they both still have some growing to do. Often books leave you with an ending that is wrapped all up in a pretty bow, the characters have learned whatever lesson they needed to and now they can live happily ever after. I loved that the end of From This Moment showed that while Stella and Romulus had grown and learned throughout the story they still had more growing to do.

5 out of 5.

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
