Lady Georgina Hawthorne has worked tirelessly to seal her place as the Incomparable for her debut season. At her first London ball, she hopes to snag the attention of an earl.
With money and business connections, but without impeccable bloodlines, Colin McCrae is invited everywhere but accepted nowhere. When he first encounters the fashionable Lady Georgina, he's irritated by his attraction to a woman who concerns herself only with status and appearance.
What Colin doesn't know is that Georgina's desperate social aspirations are driven by the shameful secret she harbors. Association with Colin McCrae is not part of Georgina's plan, but as their paths continue to cross, they both must decide if the realization of their dreams is worth the sacrifices they must make.
An Elegant Facade by Kristi Ann Hunter is the second book in the Hawthorne House series though it can definitely be read as a stand alone novel. I haven't yet read the first novel and I was able to easily follow this story.
I liked Ms. Hunter's style of writing, the characters who were humanly flawed but trying to be the best they can be as well as the elements of faith highlighted within this book.
Over all? I definitely enjoyed An Elegant Facade and can't wait to catch up on this new-to-me book series!
Thank you to Bethany House Publishers and Netgalley for the gift of this book in exchange for an honest review.
