From the Back Cover Description
Weary of the Expectations imposed on her by her strict upbringing nineteen-year-old Mazy Pelfrey left her home in the Kentucky mountains to attend secretarial school in the genteel city of Lexington. She was sure her life would change--and only for the better. Everything was supposed to be clear skies from then on.
But business school is harder than she thought it would be, and the big city not as friendly, until she meets a charming young man from a wealthy family, Loyal Chambers. When Loyal sets his sights on her, Mazy begins to see that everything she'd ever wished to have is right before yer eyes. The only hindrance to her budding romance is a former beau, Chanis Clay the young sheriff she thought shed'd left firmly behind.
Danger rumbles like thunder on a high mountain ridge when Mazy's cosseted past collides with her clouded future and forces her to come to terms with what she really wants.
I honestly picked this book because of the lovely cover. It reminded me of my country life and I have always loved the nineteenth century dress. The book is so much more than that. Other than the main Character Mazy, I love the dump diving Cinnamon who was a world apart from the wealthy ladies from the secretarial school. Hers is a story of trying to survive in the world of the have-nots and the hard work that goes along with it if you have any pride.
It was a super easy read after the first two pages and I was hooked. I loved the ending and am super glad of who she chose for a husband. Their was even a villain element which I was surprised by.
I'm sure you too will love this book, take a read and let me know what you think in the comments.
