JustRead Tours Blog Tour: A Life Renewed by Olivia Rae

A Life Renewed JustRead Blog + Review Blitz 

Welcome to the Blog + Review Blitz for A Life Renewed by Olivia Rae, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

A Life Renewed Title: A Life Renewed 
Series: Secrets of the Queens #1 
Author: Olivia Rae 
Publisher: HopeKnight Press 
Release Date: April 2, 2020 
Genre: Christian Historical Romance

In 1554, Lady Jane Grey, "The Nine Days' Queen" was executed for high treason. But what if, instead of feeling the blade on her neck she secretly survived?

Escaping execution, Lady Jane hides as a peasant girl in a principality in Germany. She loves the simple life and never wants to return to England. But her benefactor, a power-hungry German prince, wants to march on London and place her on the English throne again, thereby increasing his dominance in Europe. If she doesn't agree with his plan, her beloved childhood nurse will be put to death. Desperate for help, Jane must put her trust in the mysterious spy Asher Hayes. 

Asher Hayes is done rounding up Protestants for "Bloody Mary" and wants nothing more than to live a quiet life as a farmer and expunge the blood of many from his hands. Except Queen Mary isn't done with him yet. She throws his father, mother, and sister into prison on false charges in order to force him to accept one last mission - find and kill Lady Jane Grey. But when Asher discovers Lady Jane isn't a threat to the throne as he believed her to be, he faces a devastating decision - does he sacrifice his family for the woman who reigns in his heart?

I enjoy reading Historical Fiction and this one has a twist to it, as it is based on a real "character" from History. Lady Jane Grey was not someone I learned about in History class, but she is an interesting Historical Lady. She was Queen of England for 9 days in the 1500s.

The book begins and it takes me a couple of chapters to really get interested in the book. Lady Jane Grey is in Germany and loves living the "simple life" and doesn't want to return to her homeland of England, as she fears execution. In order to continue to escape execution she puts begins to befriend in spy Asher Hayes. Asher Hayes is trying to coax her back to England, but then he realizes she isn't as bad as others have made him think. He begins falling for her and gains a romantic interest in Lady Jane Grey. Will Asher betray his family so he can pursue a relationship with Lady Jane Grey? Is there a romance on the horizon??

I wasn't so sure about the book in the beginning, but the Author, Olivia Rae, did bring the characters and the storyline together very well. I enjoyed this book very much and look forward to reading the next books in this new Series. FANTASTIC Book!

This alternate historical fiction story about Jane Grey is intriguing.

Olivia Rae said... Best Blogger Tips

I thought if Lady Jane lived, she would have "renewed" her life. So that is where the title came from.
