This is not your typical Victorian romance novel. Yes, the heroine needs to find a husband to save the family estate . And yes, there are parties and dancing and potential suitors. But it's not a romance and the heroine's not exactly a "proper lady," but someone that grew up on a tobacco plantation in Georgia. She smokes, drinks whiskey (not gin!) and speaks her mind, often using colorful language to express herself. This makes for a pretty compelling and entertaining story. I'm no expert when it comes to historical accuracy but it seems like the author did a very thorough job researching the time period. An enjoyable read!

But wth happened? Just end the story in the middle of the end? Hope I never read another book like this, very sad. I hate when authors do this just to get another book. Won't read this author again.

Only give this book a 3 could have been more if you would have finished the book. No ending or anything
