Kaaren Christopherson ☆ 1 SUMMARY

SUMMARY ´ Decorum By Kaaren Christopherson Ere are mistresses scandals and gentlemen of ruthless ambition And there is Connor O'Casey an entirely new kind of New Yorker A self made millionaire of Irish stock Connor wants than riches He wants to create a legacy in the form of a luxury Madison Avenue hotel and he wants Francesca by his side as he does it In a uest that will take her from impeccable Manhattan salons to the wild Canadian Rockies Francesca must choose not only between two vastly different men but between convention and her own emerging self relianceRules Of DecorumA gentleman should not be presented to a lady without her permission being previously asked and granted This formality is not necessary between men alone; but still you should not present. The scene is New York 1890 and the glitz and glamor of the time and setting are the backdrop for this novel about Frankie who is a young heiress who tragically finds herself alone in the world Frankie is a complex woman who thinks she knows what she wants and who she wants but circumstances end up making her access what she really knows and she can really trust Within a few chapters this novel captivates the reader into the alluring world of golden society circles of Old New York in the 1890 s and introduces us to a set of characters that range from those born with silver spoons in their mouths to those on the outside looking in Some are kind yet others are conniving and untrust worthy I loved the fact that this story wasn t just focused on Frankie although she is depicted as the main protagonist There were many other supporting characters that had their own story going on until the author expertly weaves these characters together I loved the fact that each chapter began with a rule of etiuette which was based upon the social norms of the time The story gave me a glimpse of what it would have been like to live among the wealthiest and most prominent citizens Being a woman in this time period was a much different life than we live now I am drawn into this story so easier because of the complex character development of each and every person and the tremendous detail that is written regarding this era Of course there is all is not perfect in this novel Frankie is faced with many people who aren t what they seem on the surface Our heroine must maneuver her way through treachery greed and scandal to find which of the two men in her life is her true love In the end I found this read impressive and exciting as the author transports us back to an era that I absolutely adore and can t stop reading about This book was filled with twists and surprises and a veil of mystery that delves the reader into this novel from the beginning to the very end
