Truce: The Historical Neighbor from Hell (A Neighbor from Hell, #4) - R.L. Mathewson 5 Make Me Happy Stars

I can't begin to explain how much I loved this book. It was so nice to read a lighthearted, funny, romantic book. This is a historical romance but it really doesn't read like one. It was very enjoyable to read.


We get to go back in time and meet the beginning of the Bradford men and find out where their obsession with food came from and their ability to love fiercely.


Robert and Elizabeth were childhood enemies. They were constantly pulling pranks on each other, sometimes just plain mean to each other. After they humiliate each other in front of their family and friends when they were kids, they avoided each other like the plague.

Almost 15 years later, they meet again at a ball where neither of them wants to be. They had both escaped to find some solitude in the orangery where Robert finds Elizabeth reading a book. They don't recognize each other. After some very pleasant conversation the sparks fly, in a good way of course. But these happy feelings of love come to an abrupt halt when they finally figure it out.

Through unfortunate circumstances, they were forced to tolerate each other's company in the same household, and they just always seemed to push each other's buttons.

"Too far? Oh dear." She jumped to her feet and ducked just as he reached for her. For some reason she always went too far where he was concerned. It really couldn't be helped though, it was simply too much fun to pass up.

You know the saying that there is a fine line between love and hate? Well, these two definitely toed this line. It was so much fun to watch as their feelings developed and the humor and banter that they shared.


I absolutely adored this book. It will definitely be going on my favorites shelf to be read again along with the other Bradford clan.

Read the book people!!
