Absolutely captivating! Patty Wiseman's talent as a wordsmith is outstanding. This book takes us to another time and place then leaves us there beginning to end. I highly recommend this book from one the best authors of the decade.

“An Unlikely Conclusion” is the third book in the Velvet Shoe Collection--I read all 3 in order and would encourage everyone to do the same, so you really get the feel of the series.

This book begins just after Ruth Squire and Peter Kirby finally manage to get married. They board the train to begin their honeymoon and less than a hour later they are involved in a horrific train accident. The intensity of this dramatic event is made even more tragic by Ruth’s momentary willful and stubborn action

Fabulous ending to the Velvet Shoe Collection series. The author keeps you on the edge of your seat through exciting events. You just have to know what is going to happen next...then next....then next. I love the way she writes. Great book, highly recommend the whole series.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an extraordinary conclusion to A Velvet Shoe Collection May 11, 2014

By Richard L. Weatherly
Format:Paperback

If the title of this review catches your eye, that's great but if you haven't read the first two books, An Unlikely Arrangement and An Unlikely Beginning, I encourage you to read those first. You will find they are well worth the read!

The series is set in the later part of the Roaring Twenties and Patty Wiseman is definitely in her element with the historical setting

An Unlikely Conclusion by Patty Wiseman

I have been fortunate enough to follow along in Patty’s Velvet Shoe Collection from the beginning. An Unlikely Conclusion is the third, and final installment in the series following Ruth and Peter. Their lives have been turned upside down, full of loss, mystery, and intrigue. I love the way Patty balances romance and mystery, always reaching a new level of excellence. I’m not often interested in the historical genre, but this collection is an obvious except

This book is the bang up ending of a three book series by Patty Wiseman based on a true story from her own family history. Once again Patty has accurately captured the voice and tone of works of the period. Now that the couple are finally married, they head off for their honeymoon and again encounter twists and turns that kept me up till the wee hours of the morning unable to put the book down. There is no end of surprises for these young people and each one takes them deeper into a world they ...more

Patty Wiseman's writing is thoughtful and honest, with plots that keep you in suspense and characters so real that you live with them and through them. An Unlikely Conclusion is that last book of The Velvet Shoe Collection, a must-have series that you won't be able to put down until you find out what happens, and then pick up again to immerse yourself in the eloquence of Patty's writing.

Book 3 in the Velvet Shoe Collection set in 1929 pickups again with main character Ruth as she continues her journey to...happiness. Secrets, drama, train wrecks, mobsters - filled with creative scenarios, more intriguing characters, 1920's charm, thrills and suspense. "An Unlikely Conclusion" delivers. Recommended reading.

Let me introduce myself...My name is Patty Wiseman. A lifetime ago, as a child, I found myself lost in the stories my 1st grade teacher opened up to me. Over the years, my love of reading deepened and another interest formed-the love of writing. I have several short stories published and a few poems. I am a history buff and love to read and write in past eras. My Velvet Shoe Collection Series ...more
