Born into affluence, Mia Stanley is a winsome socialite with a knack for matchmaking. She's also a writer for Godey's Lady's Book magazine, much to the dismay of her family - and their society friends. A proper young lady of her social standing isn't meant to labor in such a way, but Mia has always had a way with words.
Yes. I liked the old fashioned Jane Austen feel of the book. It reminded me of Emma.
An 1850s British nobleman - facing wrongful imprisonment - sends his daughter Catherine to Philadelphia to conceal her past and start a new life as a seamstress. The City of Brotherly Love is soon abuzz with the superior workmanship and elegant design of Catherine's clothing. And when two aspiring customers visit her shop one day, Catherine recognizes their handsome companion as Carter - the American lawyer who visited her father's English estate five years ago.
Definitely will try another book from Tracie Peterson but not Barbara Caruso if I can help it.
In Tracie Peterson's tale of love and suspense, 24-year old Cassandra works for a wealthy Philadelphia widow who treats her with grandmotherly kindness. But Cassie's 1857 life takes an unexpected turn when a Boston investigator asks her to pretend they're courting so he can get closer to a murder suspect - her employer's own son.
