Goodreads Summary

Due to her parents' promise at her birth, Lady Rosemarie has been prepared to become a nun on the day she turns eighteen. Then, a month before her birthday, a friend of her father's enters the kingdom and proclaims her parents' will left a second choice. If Rosemarie can marry before the eve of her eighteenth year, she will be exempt from the ancient vow.

Before long, Rosemarie is presented with the three most handsome and brave knights in the land. But when the competition for her heart seemingly results in a knight playing foul, she begins to wonder if the cloister is the best place after all. If only one of the knights the one who appears the most guilty had not already captured her heart.

My Review

I'll admit that although I found this book to be a bit unrealistic and predictable at times, it grew on me. I had quite a bit of fun while reading it. I loved Rosemarie's interactions with the three knight they were all truly honest and wonderful men. And although some of the character's annoyed me I couldn't help myself I was drawn into the story.

Rosmarie's parents died without ever telling her that she would have to be a nun when she turned eighteen.....Unless she found her true love and married before then. And that is why a close friend of her father's brings along 3 suitors whom she will have to choose as a husband. I'll be completely honest Rosmarie's character irritated me at times not only is she indecisive but she's very naive as well. I understand that she was sheltered her whole life but it isn't that hard to put two and two together. Nonetheless, towards the end she grew on me for she finally found the courage she had hidden in her somewhere.

The romance was nice and definitely entertaining, I knew who she'd choose all along but still enjoyed her being courted by all three of them. Although, I would have like to have learned more about all of them, since it's a short book I didn't expect it. I understood why she choose who she did, after all I would've chosen him too. And even though, I was a bit sad to see them competing with one another I'm glad they still continued to be best of friends.  I'm being very vague to avoid spoilers, so bear with me.

The plot wasn't the best, it was pretty predictable but still it kept me entertained and after a while I didn't mind so much. The bad guy was so obvious but since I'm sure this book was more about romance than drama and betrayal though there is some of that, keep that in mind. The ending was as expected a happy one which is why I chose this book in the first place, it was a light read. No brain power needed here just a book to pass the time and have fun.

An Uncertain Choice is a light read full of romance and drama, one I'm sure other's will enjoy!

Rating: 3 stars
