Also the owner of: http://silversolara.blogspot.com I enjoy reading historical fiction and mystery. I live in Pennsylvania and am a retired business teacher.
Charlotte is the heiress to the Lennox fortune, and her brother and new sister-in-law to be must make sure the proper suitor is selected for her. Not just anyone can be the husband of the heir to the Lennox money.
Charlotte is a bit of a rebel, though, and wants to choose the man she loves not someone her family approves of because of his status, and love conquers all as you follow Charlotte and Bay through their ups and downs.
If you enjoy "proper" lifestyles with all of its formality, you will love THE FORTUNE HUNTER. Ms. Goodwin will definitely impress the reader with her attention to detail in every sentence. You will feel as though you are at the fox hunts and the dinner parties and vividly see the dresses and jewels of each of the ladies. The characters were very well described and quite authentic.
For me, THE FORTUNE HUNTER was a bit too detailed, though, and was repetitive, but if you enjoy reading about aristocratic activities, you won't be disappointed.
I am rating the book a 3/5. For me THE FORTUNE HUNTER was a tedious read.
This book was given to me free of charge by the publisher in return for an honest review.
