Growing up on the tough streets of nineteenth-century London, Emily Harris has always been used to fighting to survive. So when her mother—abandoned and ignored by her wealthy family— dies a lonely death, the enraged twenty-three-year-old hatches a plan to seek her revenge. With nothing left to lose, she decides to sail to New York to find the man who turned a cold shoulder to her mother’s suffering: Emily’s wealthy and treacherous grandfather. To settle the family score, Emily blends into her grandfather’s world of privilege, waiting for her moment to sabotage his business from the inside. But as she sets her plot in motion, she meets a virtuous man, Christopher Miller, who is struggling to recover from his own family scandal. As their friendship grows, Emily begins to reconsider the motives that led her to seek revenge. She is forced to make a decision: Should she risk everything in the name of justice? Or can she look toward the future and let love and forgiveness guide her instead?
A fact that most people might not know about me – I love Christian Romance books. They are my go-to books whenever I don’t know what I should read next. So when this one came up for review, I quickly jumped on it because I couldn’t wait to find another new-to-me Christian Romance author.
I was extremely disappointed in this book though. While I will admit that yes, this is a clean wholesome romance, to me it wasn’t a Christian Romance book at all. Just because a person is religious, doesn’t mean that the book overall is a Christian Romance.
Overall, I doubt that I would be reading anymore into this series, but if your looking for a quick romance read for your lunch break, then I’d say check this one out.
