Lady Eliza Sumner is on a mission. After losing her family, her fiancé, and her faith, the disappearance of her fortune is the last straw. Now, masquerading as Miss Eliza Sumner, governess-at-large, she's determined to find the man who ran off with her fortune, reclaim the money, and head straight back to London.
Much to Mr. Hamilton Beckett's chagrin, all the eyes of New York society--all the female ones, at least--are on him. Unfortunately for all the matchmaking mothers and eligible daughters, he has no plans to marry again, especially with his hands full keeping his business afloat and raising his two children alone.
When Eliza's hapless attempts to regain her fortune put her right in Hamilton's path, sparks instantly begin to fly. The discovery of a common nemesis causes them to join forces, but with all their plans falling by the wayside and their enemies getting the better of them, it will take a riot of complications for Hamilton and Eliza to realize that God just might have had a better plan in mind all along.
When all of Hamilton's and Eliza's best-laid plans fall by the wayside, it will take a riot of complications for them to realize that God just might have had a better plan in mind all along.
This is the first book I have read by this author and must admit I am true fan of hers now. What a super book, it hooks you straight away and the dinner scene with Eliza, Hamilton and Zayne was just so funny.
Hamiton and Eliza make great lead characters, and are perfect for one another, however Agatha, is right there with them. All the characters have infact such "spunk" that there isn't one I truly dislike, well other than Lawrence, and he was just plain annoying.
I have no idea if there will be another book to follow? However in my humble opinion there are still plenty of stories to tell with the other characters in the book. Just looked at the authors website and this indeed is first in a series of four books.............YEAH!!!!!
Stars out of 5 : 5 Great book, I HAD to keep on reading it until I finished the book, so read it in one very long sitting...........and suffered dearly, or should I say my housework suffered dearly the next day. Would highly recommend this book.
