Publisher's Summary

Having grown up on the mean streets of nineteenth-century London, Caroline St. James is used to fighting to survive.

So when her beloved mother - abandoned and ignored by her wealthy family - suddenly dies, the scrappy twenty-two-year-old devises a plan to right this terrible wrong. With nothing to lose, she sails to New York to find the man who turned a cold shoulder to her mother's suffering: Caroline's grandfather. To settle the family score, Caroline infiltrates her grandfather's privileged world, hoping to sabotage his business from the inside. But as she sets her plot in motion, she meets Jackson Montgomery, a virtuous man who is struggling to recover from a family scandal of his own. As their friendship grows, and Caroline begins to piece together the motives that led her family to turn its back, she is forced to make a decision: Should she risk everything in the name of justice? Or can she look toward the future and let love and forgiveness guide her instead?

    "Saddened"

    I am supremely disappointed with this book. It kept turning off during the reading and I had to continually keep turning it back on. Very annoying.

    "Wonderful Listen!"

    This is my first book of Renee Ryan's that I have read and it was lovely and won't be the last. I just ordered the second book in this series, through Audible. Also, the narrator, Karen Peakes, was fantastic. I loved her narration and it was perfect for enhancing this story.

    Caroline St. James comes to New York to bring what she believes is justice to her grandfather, who she believes is responsible for abandoning her mother when she sought his aid. Although from a wealthy family, Caroline has grown up in a terrible section of London, always fighting for survival.

    Jackson Montgomery's life is going great. He's brought his family out of scandal, is successful in business, and hopes to soon be engage. But then a young Englishwoman arrives and impacts his world.

    Sizzling romance and tension throughout this story. Two alphas butting heads and growing in their spiritual arcs. A sigh-worthy story. But can Caroline disrupt her cousin Elizabeth's life by falling in love with the man everyone has thought would become Elizabeth's husband?

    "Great narrative!!"

    I truly enjoyed the story. My only wish would be that it didn't end so abruptly. All in all look forward to listening to the next installment.

    Story
    "Didn't realize this was religious fiction"
    What disappointed you about Journey's End?

    I thought that the book started out strong and I was really enjoying it. However, the last third of the book threw me when it kept discussing G-d and the bible. The plot weakened and turned to preaching.


    Has Journey's End turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely. I will check more closely before I purchase a book.
