My Thoughts

Everything this author writes is absolutely wonderful, including this incredible series, but this book might be my favorite of the three!  You do not need to read the series in order; however, it is nice to get the background on the characters from other books.  As is typical of her books, the author does a fantastic job of researching the history and incorporating it so well into the story.  I felt like I learned a lot about the time period and working conditions in the early twentieth century.  And the villain in this story was a real man, which makes it that much more interesting!  I am also always amazed at the unique jobs of characters in this author’s novels and thought Maggie’s position as owner of an ice cream shop to be a creative career.  Additionally, I loved how strong and independent and smart Maggie is and really adored the development of her relationship with Liam, of course packed with steamy romance.  This book is riveting and engaging and I really enjoyed every part of it.  I highly recommend this series and I cannot wait to see what the author comes up with next!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author.  Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
