Cassandra Stover, or Cassie as people call her is hired to be the companion to Mrs. Jameston, an elderly yet lonely woman. Cassie is thrilled to live in such an elegant home and eventually comes to love Mrs. Jameston as one would love their own family. Mark Langford, comes to Philadelphia to investigate the death of his best friend. He has suspicions that Sebastian Jameston, Mrs. Jameston's son may have killed him. Mark literally collides into Cassie upon first meeting her. As he gets to know her, he proposes that they play a game of pretend. In order to investigate and get closer to Sebastian, he suggested that he and Cassie pretend they are courting each other. Cassie agrees since she has her doubts about her employers son, however as she spends more time with Mark, what started as a game of pretend is slowly not becoming a game anymore.
The romance between Cassie and Mark seemed kinda rushed to me yet it was still fun to read about how two people fall in love. :) What I must applaud Tracie Peterson on is in her ability to create such an evil character of Sebastian Jameston. I have never seen a character who's actions and cruelty towards others were so devestating.
Overall I really enjoyed the book. I find that I enjoyed book 2 ("A Lady of Hidden Intent") the most out of the three but between this book and "A Lady of High Regard" I cannot pick a favorite. The entire series was just wonderful and I will miss reading about a new "lady" in each new book. I look forward to her new series that comes out in September! :)
When Mrs. Jameston's wayward and ruthless son, Sebastian, returns home, Cassie fears for her safety and that of her employer. Sebastian is suspected of fraud and murder, so when handsome Mark Langford asks Cassie to help him investigate Sebastian, she agrees. There is romance and a bit of mystery and intrigue, and certainly danger. What Cassie doesn't plan on, is falling for Mark in the process.
Like the other books in this series, this is an enthralling, light historical read. Cassie is a woman of faith, Mark is a man who struggles with his, but ultimately comes to accept it. The novel is Christian without being overly preachy, the characters are likeable and the story is interesting. Of the three, I think I liked this one the best.
The Ladies of Liberty series has been a delight to read. While each book in the series can be read by itself, it is very refreshing to see a bunch of strong women in a time where women were seen and not heard. I really liked Cassandra's character. She was a faithful companion and not afraid to speak her mind. She's a very good and clean character but neither is she too perfect to be unbelievable. Her chemistry with Mark is excellent. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow throughout the story. Wow, Sebastian is one of the worse villains I have ever read in a book. Just the way he treated his mother was absolutely horrible. I'm glad that while she was not able to change his ways, she did not approve of him and was even disgusted with him. I'm tired of reading in novels where the mother is oblivious to the faults of her children and then blames others for their wrongdoings. It was refreshing to see that she realized that she had helped with his downfall and that also she wasn't going to put up with his dastardly shenanigans. This has been my favorite series of all of Tracie Peterson's books and this novel makes an excellent addition to the collection. I am hoping that there will be another lady to read about in the near future.
