Review: Love's Fortune by Laura Frantz

About the book:
Sheltered since birth at her Kentucky home, Rowena Ballantyne has heard only whispered rumors of her grandfather Silas's vast fortune and grand manor in Pennsylvania. When her father receives a rare letter summoning him to New Hope, Rowena makes the journey with him and quickly finds herself in a whole new world--filled with family members she's never met, dances she's never learned, and a new side to the father she thought she knew. As she struggles to fit in during their extended stay, she finds a friend in James Sackett, the most valued steamship pilot of the Ballantynes' shipping line. Even with his help, Rowena feels she may never be comfortable in high society. Will she go her own way . . . to her peril?

With her signature attention to historical detail, Laura Frantz brings 1850s Pennsylvania alive with a tender story of loss, love, and loyalty. Fans will cheer for this final installment of the Ballatyne saga.

My thoughts:

Love's Fortune is the final book in the Ballantyne Legacy series. It's another historical romance with twists and unexpected turns. I loved seeing how all the Ballantynes were doing since Ellie's book, Love's Awakening, and getting to know Wren's character.

I loved how things weren't always easy in Love's Fortune and the characters had to overcome challenges. I also loved the ending...that's what bumped my rating from 4 to 5 stars -- it was SO good! 

Overall, a very good read and I recommend Love's Fortune! I think book one, Love's Reckoning, is still my favorite of the series, but I've loved them all. I look forward to seeing what Laura writes next!
