Finding Miss McFarland by Vivienne Lorret Review

Finding Miss McFarland
Wallflower Wedding #3
By: Vivienne Lorret
Avon Romance

Fans of historical romance authors Lorraine Heath and Sophie Jordan will adore Vivienne Lorret's latest Wallflower Wedding novel.

Delaney McFarland is on the hunt for a husband—preferably one who needs her embarrassingly large dowry more than a dutiful wife. After the unspeakable incident at her debut, Delaney knows marrying for love is off the table, but a marriage of convenience—one that leaves her free to live the life she chooses—is the next best thing, never mind what that arrogant, devilishly handsome Mr. Croft thinks. Delaney plans to marry for money . . . or not at all.

Ever since the fiery redhead burst into his life—in a most memorable way—Griffin Croft hasn't been able to get Miss McFarland out of his mind. Now, with the maddening woman determined to hand over her fortune to a rake, Griffin knows he must step in. He must help her. He must not kiss her. But when Griffin's noble intentions flee in a moment of unexpected passion, his true course becomes clear: tame Delaney's wild heart and save her from a fate worse than death . . . a life without love.

So when I saw the blog tour for another book the wonderful Vivienne Lorret's Wallflower Wedding Series and I was SO excited, not only to read the story but to be a part of the tour. Vivienne Lorret is such a wonderful writer and has helped me fall in love with historical romance. Her first two books were amazing and completely blew my mind. But then I read Finding Miss McFarland and the story brought me to my knees, the power and emotions in this book are amazing! Which lead me to say "Vivienne, where have you been all my (book reading) life!
But let’s start with a glimpse of the story shall we. So the book starts with a disastrous debut and unfortunately it’s the debut of our heroine Delaney McFarland. To cover the issues of the debut, Delaney's father just added more money to her obscene dowry, but that doesn't some any issues, you see Delaney McFarland needs a husband. But not for love, oh no! Delaney McFarland is looking for a marriage of convenience (I know! switcharoo!), because she wants to be free to follow her own pursuits (I'm not going to tell you what they are ;-))
But then comes Griffin Cross (whom, in my head is the perfect man), a man who looks beyond Delaney's wealth and even her disastrous debut and just sees her.
I laughed, cried, snorted (I know, not pretty) and cheered my way through Finding Miss McFarland, it was such a beautiful story and one that I have re-read 3 times. Each character in this book holds a special place in my heart and one I would love to send to a dungeon somewhere (you will know who I mean when you read the book). This book is pure goodness and a keeper for many years.
I give Finding Miss McFarland 5 stars! It is a beautiful story and in my humble opinion, a timeless historical romance classic!
