Review: An Elegant Façade by Kristi Ann Hunter

About the book:
Lady Georgina Hawthorne has always known she must marry well. After years of tirelessly planning every detail of her debut season, she is poised to be a smashing success and have her choice of eligible gentlemen.

With money and powerful business connections but no title, Colin McCrae is invited everywhere but accepted nowhere. He intends to marry someday, but when he does it will not be to a shallow woman like Lady Georgina, whose only concerns appear to be status and appearance.

But beneath her flawless exterior, Georgina's social aspirations stem from a shameful secret she is desperately trying to keep hidden--and that Colin is too close to discovering. Drawn to each other despite their mutual intent to avoid association, is the realization of their dreams worth the sacrifices they'll be forced to make?

My thoughts:

An Elegant Façade is the sequel to A Noble Masquerade and a great continuation of the series. It made me see the heroine (who is the sister to the lead character in book one) in a different light. I wasn't a fan of Georgina in book one, but after reading this story I actually like her now...and I can't believe I didn't guess her secret in the first book!

I loved how An Elegant Facade didn't start right where the first book ended, but instead from earlier in the book and we got to see some of the things that had happened in A Noble Masquerade from Georgina's perspective (if you've read some of Sarah Sundin's books, it's kind of like that). You would think that would be boring, but it actually was quite interesting! I also loved the hero and seeing things from his POV.

All in all, I loved An Elegant Façade and, while I liked book one a bit more than this one, it was still a great read. I am eager to pick up the next one.

  1. I agree with you completely. This is one of my favorite series but this was my least favorite even though I did like it. The third book is my favorite so I hope you get to read it soon.

    1. Thanks for commenting. Surprisingly book three was my least favorite (I just didn't like the romance), but I've really enjoyed the series. :)) So glad you are a fan, too!
