The minute I heard this book was coming out, I knew I had to get it!
The synopsis really intrigued me, it seemed really different than anything I had read before.
First I want to point out how gorgeous the cover is!!! Claire in a red dress overlooking the estate….just fabulous!!!
I love the authors writing style- it just flows so wonderfully and I think her experience as a legal investigator brings so much life and believability to the story. She really puts her characters through the wringer! I literally could not stop reading as Claire’s life literally disintegrated around her- betrayal, public humiliation, and a trial of faith.
I really enjoyed this debut of the Texas Gold Collection- I can’t wait to see what this author has planned next!
If you love stories of intrigue, family dynamics, with a sense of realism….don’t you dare miss A Woman of Fortune!!!

*****5/5 STARS- 2014 FAVE!!! LOVE IT; GET YOUR OWN COPY!!!*****
