  • Wonderful Narration by Justine Eyre

    The Heiress Hunt had all the elements I usually love in a novel, but it never quite hit the mark for me. The novel started off wonderfully and I couldn't wait to see how things would unfold, but slowly the story started to unravel and I found myself not really liking either of the main characters. The reason for the separation grated on me and it was hard to believe that Maddie would be so oblivious to Harrison's feelings. I loved the shared history between them and am a huge friends to lovers trope fan, but I just wasn't convinced of their love and devotion to each other. The writing was enjoyable, but the plot was fairly predictable. The final drama and push away only painted both characters in an even worse light because of their rash decision making skills and inability to speak openly with each other. These two are supposed to know each other better than anyone else, but they never bothered to actually tell the other the truth when it really mattered. Harrison's decision to head to Paris for a debauchery filled future was especially problematic to me and the mention of Esmee made my blood boil. I liked that the story came full circle, but the ending itself felt a bit rushed. The narration by Justine Eyre kept me listening and I really enjoyed her performance. She voiced all the characters very well and her male voices were quite convincing. She really was the perfect Maddie. Even though The Heiress Hunt didn't quite work for me, I enjoyed Joanna Shupe's writing and look forward to reading more of her books in the future.

  • Another Gilded Age Romance from Joanna Shupe

    Childhood friends to lovers A female tennis star circa 1895 Prodigal son returns to (maybe?) save the family business A house party in Newport with the stated purpose of finding a bride Maddie Webster has known Harrison Archer since they were children. Harrison left for Paris years ago without saying goodbye. He couldn’t tell her that he heard her state that she wasn’t romantically interested in him on the very day he planned to make his intentions known. He returns years later intent on making Maddie his bride. Everyone around her realizes Harrison and Maddie are meant for each other, but she remains clueless. Throw in a Duke looking to marry an heiress, a family looking to be bailed out of bankruptcy by the prodigal son and the most important tennis tournament for Maddie and you have an interesting Gilded Age romance novel. 3 1/2 stars.

  • Fast-paced, steamy, and compelling

    After a three-year banishment, Harrison returns to his family as their last hope. The family business is bankrupt, and their only option to avoid ruin is for him to marry an heiress. But Harrison has other ideas. He's been using the wealth he acquired in Paris to buy up company stock and take over the business for himself. He has no interest in pursuing an heiress—until he learns that Maddie, his secret childhood love, is still single. To win her away from the duke who's courting her, Harrison asks Maddie to throw a house party and invite her eligible friends so he can choose a bride from among them. But Maddie can't deny the powerful attraction growing between her and Harrison. Will their stolen kisses lead to love or ruin? This Gilded Age romance is fast-paced, steamy, and compelling. It's a fun story with likeable if fallible characters. I'm not a huge fan of the revenge trope, but the revenge subplot in this story doesn't overwhelm the romance. Beautifully executed, it's an entertaining and emotional tale. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.
