Publisher Description

CBA best-selling author Tracie Peterson-acclaimed for more than six dozen gripping novels, including the Alaskan Quest finale Whispers of Winter-launches the first installment in a series that stars winsome, independent heroines. Featuring non-stop adventure, endearing characters, and surprising twists, this compelling tale of wholesome love transports listeners to the opulence and privation of 1852 Philadelphia. Charming young socialite Mia Stanley has a knack for matchmaking-and for sticking her affluent little nose into trouble. Much to the dismay of her proper parents and their highfalutin friends, she also writes for Goodey's Lady Book magazine. When her writing draws Mia into the seamy world of the downtrodden, she uncovers shocking secrets that threaten her safety. But as Cupid's arrow tugs her heart in an unexpected direction, she fears her reckless independence may have dashed all hope for true love. Barbara Caruso's exhilarating narration helps charm listeners with the excitement, fun, and romance of Peterson's captivating gem. "4.5 stars . the romance, humor and adventure are nonstop.

    " This story was basically a retelling of Jane Austen's Emma. The characters were somewhat flat and one dimensional and the storyline got largely predictable and repetitive after a while. The ending also seemed rushed and unsatisfying leaving some, albeit trivial, loose ends. Definitely nowhere near Peterson's best. "

    " Simple and easy love story. Guessed the ending and skipped some but it was very clean and fluffy. Has a time and a place. Not for people who ready heavier books. "

    " I LOVED the main characters of this story, Mia & Garrett. I stayed up WAY too late last night finishing the last 1/3 of the book because I couldn't put it down. It's a wonderful love story w/ some action and suspense at the end. Garrett can be my knight in shining armor anyday. "

    " Great period piece romance with Christian themes, moral dilemmas, choices and their dramatic consequences. "

    " I like the era in which this is written, and it was a good story, but it dragged and didn't keep my attention like other authors do. It was very predictable, and although that's not a bad thing by itself, this one was too much so. I'm not sure what it was, and it was a good book, but not great. "

    " If you like sermons and interrupted confessions of love, then you'll love this. The story would have made a great short if you cut out all the repetitiveness. It's more focused on how we should reach out to the poor than on being an actual story. "

    " I really like books that are love between long-time "just friends"..and this book didn't disappoint but instead was a great fun story about a woman who wanted to right the world and the man who wanted to right her!! "

    " This was a good book that held my attention. It was easy to get into and read. The plot reminded me a lot of Jane Austens book Emma. I wouldn't mind reading more from this author. "

    " I don't think I'll be reading anything else from this series. The main character has good moral fiber, but is a lot blind to common sense and had to keep being rescued from her own impulses. "

    " I like Tracie Peterson. She writes about interesting periods of time and issues that I've never really thought about. This is about a woman being an advocate for the poor families of a seaport. I've liked the whole series, but this one was my favorite. (Firsts usually are in a series!) "

    " A silly, uninteresting book. I picked this up because the covers for Tracie Peterson's books are simply gorgeous - I just wish the stories were as well. I should have known better. "

    " I really enjoyed reading this book a lot! Some of it was a little racy, but other parts were totally intense. I would have given it 5 stars, if the author had spared some of the racy details. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to read the next. "

    " Cute story. I think it was a little like Emma where she falls for the best friend. The frustrating part of the book was that she couldn't take advice from anyone. Especially when she was putting herself in dangerous situations. I was ready to throttle her is she was real. "
