A multiple Christy Award winner and RITA Award finalist, bestselling author Deeanne Gist delivers unforgettable historical romances. Set at the Vanderbilt’s Biltmore estate in 1890s Ashville, North Carolina, Maid to Match finds Tillie Reese torn between her lifelong dream of being a lady’s maid and the romantic stirrings of her heart.

From the day she arrives at the Biltmore, Tillie Reese is dazzled—by the riches of the Vanderbilts and by Mack Danvers, a mountain man turned footman. When Tillie is enlisted to help tame Mack’s rugged behavior by tutoring him in the ways of refined society, the resulting sparks threaten Tillie’s efforts to be chosen as Edith Vanderbilt’s lady’s maid. But the stakes rise even higher when Mack and Tillie become entangled in a cover-up at the town orphanage. They could both lose their jobs … and their hearts.

    " The story of this book may not have rated this many stars, it's pretty typical, but the detail in the book was amazing. Just learning all the stuff about a servant's life at the Biltmore mansion was fascinating. I also really liked the side story about the orphanage, it was all really well done. "
