Book Blog Tour Stop - "Heiress: Daughters of Fortune 1" by Susan May Warren

I'm thrilled to host a book blog tour stop today for the fabulous author Susan May Warren and her new book, "Heiress." 

About The Book:

They can buy anything they want—fame, power, beauty, even loyalty.

But they can’t buy love.

The beautiful and wealthy heiress daughters of August Price can buy everything their hearts desire. But what if their desire is to be loved, without an enormous price tag attached? When one sister betrays another for the sake of love, will she find happiness? And what happens when the other sets out across the still untamed frontier to find it—will she discover she’s left it behind in the glamorous world of the New York gilded society? What price will each woman pay for being an heiress?

Set in the opulent world of the Gilded Age, two women discover that being an heiress just might cost them everything they love.

I was entralled by this book from the first page! (I finished it in one night!)  The story of the two Price sisters, Esme and Jinx, will draw you in with the drama and fast-paced action, and as you follow their lives and watch their characters grow and mature, you'll find their transformation from girls to women fascinating.  The plot includes a lovely sense of romance along with an intriguing bit of mystery and suspense that keeps you flipping the pages in anticipation. And I loved the time period of the "Gilded Age" of the late 1890s to the early 1900s, when women were really coming into their own.

Susan May Warren is one of my favorite Christian authors, weaving in gentle and sweet Christian moments into her stories that uplift and advise the reader without beating them over the head with it. That is a true gift for a writer in this genre.

"Heiress" is the first book in the "Daughters of Fortune" series, and I look forward to the next installment following Jinx and Esme's daughters and what I'm sure will be more adventures in life and romance.

I highly recommend this book for any fan of historical fiction, romantic fiction and just plain ol' great fiction!  I hope you love it as much as I did!
