Loyally Luke: Book Review

Book by: Pepper Basham

What a fun conclusion to Pepper Basham’s epistolary series!

I’ve been waiting for Luke’s story for a while now, and it didn’t disappoint! In fact, I think it’s my favourite book of the whole series.

Luke returns to Skymar to work for Mr. Gray (who we meet in book two). In addition to renovating an isolated cottage in the North Country, Mr. Gray has a secret project for Luke. Readers are dropped into the North Country, surrounded by lovely mountains and a town that prides itself in providing a safe haven for the royals. With vivid descriptions, it’s easy to imagine the town and the beauty in this particular part of Skymar.

A castle, an orphanage, and a mismatched work crew keep Luke’s story interesting. As Luke gets to know his crew and the orphans he’s helping, readers will fall in love with the grumpy carpenter all over again. And not everyone is who they appear to be…

Texts and emails between the family continues the fun banter of previous books in epistolary form, broken up by an easy narrative in each chapter.

I’m sad to say good-bye to Skymar and the Edgewood family. It was a great trilogy. Unique stories that I look forward to reading again. And again.

This story has it all – royalty, grumpy/sunshine, secret identity, slow-burn/office romance, with all the fun hallmarks of a Hallmark film (pun intended!).

I highly recommend reading books one and two before reading Luke’s story as there are a lot of references unfamiliar readers may miss.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions expressed are my own.
