An Uncertain Choice by Jody Hedlund

Due to her parents’ promise at her birth, Lady Rosemarie has been prepared to become a nun on the day she turns eighteen. Then, a month before her birthday, a friend of her father’s enters the kingdom and proclaims her parents’ will left a second choice–if Rosemarie can marry before the eve of her eighteenth year, she will be exempt from the ancient vow.

Before long, Rosemarie is presented with the three most handsome and brave knights in the land. But when the competition for her heart seemingly results in a knight playing foul, she begins to wonder if the convent is the best place after all. If only one of the knights–the one who appears the most guilty–had not already captured her heart.
Genre: YA Romance
Age Range: 13+
Release Date: March 3, 2015

Before I start, can we just talk for a minute about that cover? It is seriously beautiful. Like, extremely. 
(Confession: I might have spent the first day merely admiring the book before I actually started it. THAT COVER.)
Okay, so. What did I like? What didn’t I like? Read on.
The Good
  1. I loved how real Rosemarie was. She was never sure of herself, she second-guessed herself. It made her real, because no one is completely sure of their decisions. She did stand for what she believed in, though. She was the wonderful epitome of real character.
  2. This book kept me on my toes. It wasn’t just a romance. The author mixed in murder and mayhem as well. 
  3. This book was very historically accurate, which was amazing. A lot of books these days are not historically accurate.
  4. It was very well-written! A lot of YA Romances coming out these days are poorly written and chock full of junk, but this book was fresh, and lovely.
  5. The villain was amazingly done. I’m not naming any names, but he was very well written. He wasn’t directly evil, but he was a good villain, and a good fit for the story.
  6. I spent a lot of this book shipping the MC and who she ended up with(again, not naming names.). I maybe have voiced thoughts out loud.
The Bad
  1. There were a few POV switches that bothered me. Other than that… *shrug*
Five stars to another well-written book by Jody Hedlund! So glad she decided to give YA a go. 🙂
Hasta la vista,

P.S. Another “Saying Goodbye” post is coming soon.

    The things you picked it out made it look like a fascinating story, although I don't know whether it's the kind of book I'd enjoy. Maybe I'll pick it up sometime; thanks for the recommendation!
