About Victoria Chatham

Being born in Bristol, England, Victoria Chatham grew up in an area rife with the elegance of Regency architecture. This, along with the novels of Georgette Heyer, engendered in her an abiding interest in the period with its style and manners and is one where she feels most at home.

Apart from her writing, Victoria is an avid reader of anything that catches her interest, but especially Regency romance. She also teaches introductory creative writing. Her love of horses gets her away from her computer to volunteer at Spruce Meadows, a world class equestrian centre near Calgary, Alberta, where she currently lives.

Review by: Diane Scott Lewis on Oct. 16, 2017 :
Tilly arrives from the dusty plains to beautiful Banff Springs in 1930's Alberta, Canada. She's devastated after the loss of her father and her home and has come to work as a chambermaid at the famous hotel. She meets handsome Ryan who immediately tells her he's going to marry her. Tilly is more circumspect. She struggles in her new job and new-found "freedom." Some of the rich guests are friendlier than she is comfortable with and the hotel even has a ghost bride. Will Tilly find happiness?
Ms. Chatham's writing is beautifully descriptive, but Ryan comes on too strong too quickly which is always a pet-peeve of mine with novels.
Tilly is a heroine to root for: a nice, naïve girl thrown into a foreign environment. Lovers of romance and those who are interested in this period of history, especially Canadian history, will enjoy this book
