REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
Like the age in which it is set, everything is not quite as it seems in this tale of American money meets English aristocracy. American Heiress is a portrait of another age, not so long ago and not so unlike our own, with a little mystery and a little romance thrown in for good measure– Not to mention a crumbling English mansion and a slew of servants and supporting snobs. A bit of a soapy period yarn, but that is exactly what it is meant to be.

I just got this book at the beginning of October in one of my book hauls! I don’t have the time to read it now but I am really looking forward to reading it.
I read The American Heiress several months ago and really enjoyed it!
