I really enjoy Grace Burrowes writing style. This book had things I liked: I liked Maggie and Ben. I liked that Maggie was smart and built her own fortune. Of course it also had things I didn't and they were enough to keep this from being a 4-5 star read. This is my last favorite of the Windham...
I liked Maggie a lot, which put this book a notch above the sisters' stories.See my review of the series at http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/240638362.
2 ½ StarsThis book was a 3 ½ Stars until the last scene, when it lost 1 star for something Maggie did/said. I can't say more without giving spoilers away.
Enjoyable but didn't hold my attention like the other books in this series have.
