To Have and to Hoax - Martha Waters

The course of true love - or irritation - never did run smooth.
Five years ago, Lady Violet Grey and Lord James Audley met, fell in love, and married.
Four years ago, they had a fight to end all fights, and have barely spoken since.
Their once-passionate love may have dissolved into cold, detached politeness, but when Violet receives a letter that James has been thrown from his horse, she races to be by his side - only to discover him alive, well, and baffled by her concern.
Outraged, Violet decides to feign an illness of her own to teach her estranged husband a lesson. And so begins an ever-escalating game of manipulation - and a great deal of flirtation between a husband and wife who might not hate each other as much as they thought.
In this warring marriage, which spouse will be the victor?
And will the real prize be winning back the love they each thought they'd lost?
I have never read anything historical and this book has me wanting to read more! This was such a fun read and I couldn't put it down. I ended up reading it in one sitting. This book follows the married couple of Violet and James who haven't been on good terms in four years and without spoiling it, they end up messing with each other and it's a little enemies to lovers which is one of my favourite tropes.

This book surprised me with how witty it was and just how sassy Violet was! I also loved all of the side characters and friends in this book, they added so much to it and I would love to read more about them in the future. One of the main issues the couple has is a lack of communication which I am not usually a fan of in my romance but it worked well with this book and gave the story some funny moments! They could also get called out by their friends on it so I liked that they were actually aware of it. 

There was a lot of unexpected elements to this story that I really enjoyed and it's one of the most memorable romances I have read in the last couple of months. 

To Have and to Hoax by Martha Waters is published by Headline Eternal. Paperback and eBook out on the 7th April. The ebook is a bargain at £1.99!
