As owner of the 57th Illinois Watch Company, Mollie Knox's future looks bright until the night the legendary Great Chicago Fire destroys her beloved city. With her world crumbling around her, Mollie will do whatever it takes to rebuild in the aftermath of the devastating fire.
Zack Kazmarek, an influential attorney for one of Chicago's finest department stores, is a force to be reckoned with among the city's most powerful citizens. Bold and shrewd, he's accustomed to getting exactly what he wants--until he meets Mollie Knox, the beguiling businesswoman just beyond his reach.
In the tumult as the people of Chicago race to rebuild a bigger and better city, Mollie comes face-to-face with the full force of Zack's character and influence. Zack believes this may finally be his chance to win her, but can Mollie ever accept this man and his whirlwind effect on her life, especially with her treasured company on the line?
Thoroughly enjoyed this book, especially with Mollie as the lead character. The strength and courage she displays throughout the book is extraordinary; and very believable. The choices that she makes, make her wise beyond her years.
Zack's personality is the exact opposite to Mollie's, but they do say the opposites attract and in this case they do, but not without a lot of twists and turns along the way.
Stars out of 5 : 4.5 Didn't get hooked right away but soon after. Well worth the read and you'll want to know what happens next the further you get into the book. I also found it interesting from the historical aspect as well. There is an interesting historical note at the end of the book.
