My Review of Masquerade by Nancy Moser.

I received a copy of this book to review and I was anxious to read it as I had read one of this author's books before and loved it!! Below is a small blurb of the book.

"Eighteen eighty-six, New York City: Charlotte Gleason, a rich heiress from England, escapes a family crisis by traveling to America in order to marry the even wealthier Conrad Tremaine. She soon decides that an arranged marriage is not for her and persuades her maid, Dora, to take her place. What begins as the whim of a spoiled rich girl wanting adventure becomes a test of survival amid poverty beyond Charlotte's blackest nightmares. As for Dora, she lives a fairy tale complete with gowns, jewels, and lavish mansions--yet is tormented by guilt and the presence of another love that will not die. Will their masquerade be discovered? Will one of them have second thoughts? There is no guarantee the switch will work. It's a risk. It's the chance of a lifetime."

This was a very interesting plot in my opinion. To have a young woman from nobility switch places with a servant is very different and had so much potential that I wasn't sure would be taken to it's fullest. Needless to say, it was! Nancy did a beautiful job in writing this book. I think the style of writing was good and this novel is a nice read. It was interesting to see the changes that came over Charlotte. How she changed and matured. And I was going to be really disappointed in Dora if she had proceeded in her course but Nancy came through:) I really liked this novel and will be watching for more from Nancy Moser.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishing in exchange for my thoughts. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
