The Roaring Twenties is not all its cracked up to be, especially when you're Rosie Worth or Lilly Hoyt. While Rosie is the seemingly wild child, wanting to experience the painted faces and short bob's fashionable to the flappers, her cousin Lilly just wants to head back to the ranch she left behind in Montana and creating a haven for buffaloes.
Both Rosie and Lilly are the daughters of wealthy families and thus the need to be looked after, especially when their carefree ways take them on paths that their mothers don't desire for them. For Rosie, she falls head in heels in love with a man named Dashielle Parks, whom her mother warns isn't the man for her and isn't the marrying type. When she vows to prove her mother wrong, she soon learns that Dash isn't looking for marriage but merely a good time.
Lilly on the other hand finally finds something of an adventure in Paris when she finds herself separated following a celebrity funeral for Sarah Bernhardt. Knowing where she is likely to find her cousin Rosie, she is befriended by a handsome gentleman, named Rennie Dupre' who promises to show her the sights of Paris. None of them is quite so grand as when seen from an airplane flown by Rennie, but does he have his sights set on more than just Lilly's heart or is it Lilly's wealth that he is ultimately after?
In the latest novel following Heiress by Susan May Warren, Baroness catches up with the Daughters of Fortune series and follows the chaotic lifestyles of two young girls on the heels of trying to find something in life that makes them happy besides money. As both girls struggle to pull away from their parents strong-handed ways of finding what is best for them during this time in history, however, neither set of parents ask what the girls want, thinking they are simply to young to understand their emotions.
They do what any wealthy parents would, and threaten them not to see either of their men and whisk them back to New York, thinking that will solve this problem. It doesn't. Rosie and Lilly have a lot to learn in this coming-of-age story of two socialites trying to find their happiness and searching for love and self worth in the process. Susan gives the readers such viable characters to relate to and their journey will leave you breathless by the ending page. Thankfully there will be a sequel to pick up where this cliffhanger will leave you.
I received this book compliments of Litfuse Publicity for my honest review and LOVED it just as much as Heiress. It can be read as a stand alone but if you're looking for the back story of their moms, you'll need to pick up the first book. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait to pick up another Daughter of Fortune novel in the very near future.
