My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another winner from Ms. Milan, this time with a simply adorable tale of a young woman striving to better herself, not by marrying a marquess, but by starting her own business. Daisy is everything we want in a heroine--plucky, brave, determined, and not willing to settle for less than her due in love or in success.
Crash is a great hero, and an unexpected one. At first he comes across as a ne'er do well, light hearted and not serious about life or Daisy. But the more we get to know him, the more we realize how much deeper he is. He's a mixed race bastard in Victorian England, and finding his spot in society will take his own brand of hard work and determination.
The secondary characters also shined, and I especially adored the aunties. But there was an appearance by a heroine of a previous Milan novel who makes the reader re-think what a HEA is, and how one achieves that.
Can't wait for more from this talented author, who's always an auto-buy for me.
