Flirtation Walk

Flirtation Walk
Siri Mitchell
Lucinda is the daughter of a con man. Upon learning of his death, she heads to West Point to reconnect with her deceased mother's family. They know nothing about her helping her father and she intends to keep it that way. Seth is a cadet at the academy. He's at the top of his class and expected to receive coveted orders upon graduation. But when his sister is swindled out of their family farm he takes risky measures to get to the bottom of his class so he can go out west to search for the man who conned their family. The two are the unlikeliest couple. Yet sometimes things are always as they appear.

This book started out painfully slow for me. But eventually the plot picked up a bit and I was able to get in to the story. The two main characters were about middle of the line for me as far as relate-ability and depth. The concept for the plot was solid and I enjoyed that part of it. The writing was good, as is usual for this author. The faith aspect seemed a little weak for me, considering it was Christian fiction. But that aspect seemed to fit with the characters so maybe that was the intend. My favorite part of the whole book as Seth's friends. They were entertaining and provided comic relief to the heaviness of the story. Overall, I enjoyed the book, but didn't love it.

I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
