Lose Yourself in the History, Opulence, and Elegance of the Thousand Islands Cousins Amanda, Sophie, and Fanny Broadmoor are as close as sisters, but when their grandfather dies, the terms of his will just might destroy their bond. Seventeen-year-old Fanny has never put much stock in the conventions of society. In fact, she has given her heart to Michael, the family boat-keeper. But when she receives a surprising inheritance, she discovers just how oppressive society can be... and that she may be trusting the wrong people. Dare she follow her heart and risk going against her family? What if she loses everything she's ever known? It all comes down to one choice: What does Fanny Broadmoor want her legacy to be?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As the first novel in a series, this is something that I am extremely eager to continue to the next novels. Many times if there is a series where questions are left unanswered for the next novels they are abrupt and annoying in their wait for answers. With this novel I find I have anticipation for the next book in the series, but I'm not left on a ledge in annoyance. I'm glad I've already purchased the second book, and received the third for a review - I cannot wait to read them.
This is an entertaining book. The main character, a Fanny Broadmoor has been dealt an interesting life within her extended family of loss after loss and with the issue of a possible inheritance she may be pushed even further away from them than she ever imagined. Once again Tracie Peterson has a novel with a bad guy that gets under your skin. But the difference this time is that this is a co-authored novel and this is a bad guy that you do not want to be bad. For my first exposure to Judith Miller, I must say I enjoyed it. After reading so many Peterson novels, I can tell a difference in the writing voice of this novel and I believe I have found another author in Miller to add to my reading list.
