Journey now to Niagara Falls, New York, of 1870 where...She avoids danger at all costs. He makes his living by rushing headlong into it. Outwardly, Adele Linley’s trip to visit her American cousins is nothing more than a summer vacation. In reality, she’s the daughter of an English aristocrat with barely a penny to her name seeking a rich American husband.
Having grown up in an overcrowded orphanage, Drew Dawson is determined to make a name for himself. He’ll take any honest job to provide for his sister—even crossing Niagara Falls by tightrope. On a sightseeing trip to the Falls, Adele meets several eligible suitors. Incredibly wealthy and pompous, Franklin Conway takes an immediate fancy to her. But Adele would truly like to marry for love. When she encounters the mysterious Drew in the garden, Adele is confused by her feelings for someone who is everything she is NOT looking for. Will they both stay the course they have chosen for themselves?

I really enjoyed this book…you might not know that looking at the time it took me read it but I took more brakes cause I felt a bit of a rut coming on and I was trying really hard to not get sucked into it!
So once I started seeing review for this book trickle in I was very curious as to the thing Adele did that alot of readers didn’t agree with…I found it and thinkI agree with other readers, but I wasn’t horribly mad at her, I mean I almost was but….she really was trying to help and her way was just too twisted to not go wrong(make sense??? haha sorry if it doesn’t)
I thought Adele though a bit misguided was pretty brave for crossing the ocean in order to try and solve her family’s problem.
I LOVED Drew!! seriously and tbh he was a bit different than I expected…I thought he’d be all for the daredevil stunts but to me he was more like reluctant daredevil, and I loved him all the more for it!!
And don’t get me started on Conway……just no!!!!! I wasn’t his biggest fan from the beginning but the more I saw the more…Just NO!! and really thats all I’ll say cause “spoilers”.
Congrats on the new book Amanda I can’t wait to see what else you write. I’ll be here waiting impatiently for the next book and hoping to be apart of your next team!
Tell Adele I said hi!!
