"The Scullery Maid's Day Off" by Renee Riva

About this book:

  “South Carolina, 1908:
Scullery maid, Lucy Forman, has been serving at Worthington House since the day she turned sixteen. Now, at nineteen, she is asked to take over the duties of gathering chicken eggs out by the stables. It doesn't take Lucy long to notice there's more to see at the chicken house than just chickens.
  When Stable boy, James Parker notices the young, red-head in place of Bossy Betty, he suddenly takes a deep interest in repairing loose boards down at the coop. Falling through the wall of the hen-house was not his intention, but when he sees the cute maiden on the other side, he can't help but fall for Lucy.
  Downton Abbey fans who are intrigued by what goes on below the stairs, will love following the antics of Lucy and the fun, feisty kitchen maid, Lizzy. Who, but Lizzy, could talk Lucy into sneaking down a six-story fire escape to go to a dance?
Mischief and young love are in store...
  Readers will get to decide who really lives life to its fullest; the well-to-do Gentry, or those who serve them.”
