Review: An Elegant Facade by Kristi Ann Hunter

By Musing the Manuscript - 6:00 am


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.


Rating: 3/5

It took a little bit for me to get into this book, as it started a little bit choppy, but once I got through the first couple of chapters I actually enjoyed the story. 

Lady Georgina has a secret, one that may ruin her chances at a suitable match - and that could be used against her family by a suitor that isn't quite as upstanding as he seems. Georgina hides her secret behind a veil of distain, fooling her friends and her family - but Colin can see glimpses of the woman that she is behind the veil. Can he convince her to share her fears, not only with him, but with her family?

Colin is a man without a title, but who circulates within Lady Georgina's social circle for other reasons - primarily because of his outstanding business sense. He is inexplicably drawn to the young woman in white, although he knows that she is aiming higher than a mere 'mister' in her search for a husband. Will Georgina be able to get past the fact that Colin isn't a man of title?
