Margaret is one of the wealthiest young women in London. She's in town to find a husband. Her fiance Paul is another wealthy titled person and the local gossip is talking about the wedding of the year for the perfect couple. Mr. Tom Poole is a wealthy man, but comes from a poor family. He earned his wealth in the gold mines of Australia. The ton is reluctant to accept him, but his wealth is apparently speaking for them. When Margaret finds herself in a bind she learns who she can really depend on.
The characters are real, flawed, and fun to read about. I was a little nervous reading the second book in the series. But the book can be read as a stand-alone. There are definite mentions to the previous story, but I wasn't once left feeling lost or confused. It did, however, make me find the first book so I could read it as well. I didn't realize the book was Christian fiction until I had read a bit into the book. There are very subtle references that some might not even pick up on. So for the person who might normally stray away from CF, I would recommend giving this book a try. It certainly isn't preachy or in your face. I, personally, would have preferred more of a Christian feel since the book was labeled as such, but it was a great book that I will be keeping. The author does a great job of engaging the reader.
