An Unlikely Suitor

New York dressmaker Lucy Scarpelli befriends socialite Rowena Langdon as she's designing her 1895 summer wardrobe. Grateful for Lucy's skill in creating fashions that hide her physical injury, Rowena invites Lucy to the family mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, encouraging the unusual friendship.
One day Lucy encounters an intriguing man on the Cliff Walk, and love begins to blossom. Yet Lucy resists, for what Newport man would want to marry an Italian dressmaker working to support her family?
Rowena faces an arranged marriage to a wealthy heir she doesn't love, but dare a crippled girl hope for anything better?
And Lucy's teenage sister, Sofia, falls for a man well above her social class--but is he willing to give up everything to marry a woman below his station?
As the lives of three young woman--and their unlikely suitors--become entangled in a web of secrets and sacrifice, will the season end with any of them finding true happiness?

My Thoughts:

I loved An Unlikely Suitor! It's a rags to riches story. Lucy is a wonderful character who takes on the role as head of household to provide for her mother and sister.  The story includes the bratty, jealousy thoughts and actions of the little sister and it just made me want to pinch her head right off. This book includes more than romance. There is a mystery buried inside along with an evil villain that gets whats coming to him. The only thing about this book that I did not like in fact it was horrible ~ was the ending. There was so much leading up to the end and then it fizzled out. I felt like I had been cheated the way it ended. I was more than a little disappointed in the end. But, like in all romance stories, the girl gets the guy.

**I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers in return for my honest opinion.**
