At Christmas, during an annual trek to Books-A-Million in Nashville, I picked up The Fortune Hunter by Daisy Goodwin. I read it these past few weeks and it was enjoyable!
My Goodreads review (albeit concise):
I had no idea what to expect from this book as it just caught my eye in a bookstore one day. But the writing was very good and the story kept me entertained.
Charlotte Baird is an heiress who falls for a lady's man/fortune hunter. The story is predictable but the route to the ending is unexpected and well thought out. I also really appreciate that it is based on historical fact.
I hope Daisy Goodwin continues to write as she's very competent at historical fiction!
