Floras Wish The Secret Lives of Will Tucker Book #1 of 3
This book has a little bit of everything, which is exactly what I hope for. All though I would up the danger a little more (but, thats just me).
Opening scripture: Over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Col. 3:14
1887 Natchez, Mississippi
Flora Brimm aka Fatal Flora has had and lost 5 fiancs to death! She is attempting to marry a 6th, Will Tucker, before the terms of her grandfathers will expire and she loses her family home to her cousin.
However, Lucas McMinn, a handsome Irish Pinkerton agent, is hunting Will Tucker for nefarious activities, which throws a huge wrench in Floras plans. He is also an inventor, and his inventions are used to aid his detective skills. That was a fun addition to the story! Lucas takes Flora into custody and a whirlwind adventure ensues. These two have wonderful chemistry and depth and I greatly enjoyed them. There is plenty of humor and faith/praying as well. There are several typos in the book, which I needed to overlook, since the story is quite good.
Favorite Quote: pg. 20 Its not done. At least not by a Brimm, of course. Grandmama looked as if she had given the ultimate answer to all responses. Of course, in her circle, it was the ultimate response. Some things just werent done. Flora made a note to dance in the rain at her earliest opportunity. Not to show Grandmama, but to take one item off the list of things that just werent done by Brimms.
I purchased this copy. My opinion is my own and without compensation. I will rate it 5 stars for the story, but would drop a 1/2 star for editing if that were allowed.
The chemistry between Lucas and Flora is delicious, and it's fun to watch her challenge him constantly and to watch their relationship grow over the course of the story. Although I don't often read books about high society folk, I thoroughly enjoyed Flora's Wish.
"Flora's Wish" is a delightfully humorous tale and a cute love story. Flora and Lucas have a great many sparring matches, playing off each other really well and sparking great entertainment for the reader. The secondary characters are as fun as the main - Grandmamma is a spectacular lady (quite possibly my favorite character), and even the hotel staff have personality. I look forward to the installment of Will Tucker's schemes.
I gave this book 5/5 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed the main characters of Flora and Lucas. From the beginning you can tell there will be great chemistry between them. I thought Flora was written as a strong and smart woman who was likable. Lucas was written very well as the detective who fights his feelings for her and has very strong opinions of his own. Overall this book had great characters and good conversations. The events were believable and the story flowed from one scene to the next. I would recommend this book for anyone looking for an adventure filled Christian fiction book to read and enjoy.
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
