Dawn Crandall's debut novel The Hesitant Heiress had a slow start, but soon became quite engrossing. Amaryllis and Nathan are an interesting couple. He spends his time trying to attract the attention of Amaryllis, the one woman who wants nothing to do with him. This story takes place during the social season in the late 1800's. Everyone is trying to make the most advantageous match in order to secure their fortunes. It is hard to tell if anyone is marrying for love or just to preserve their inheritance. I grew quite attached to the characters and look forward to book 2 The Bound Heart. I believe that we will be hearing much more from Dawn Crandall!
I was given this novel by the author in exchange for my honest opinion,but I was not required to give a favorable review.
