A LADY OF HIGH REGARD
Genre: Inspirational, Historical Romance
In this first book of a new series by best-selling author Peterson, the romance, humor and adventure are nonstop. Peterson does her research, and it shows in each book she writes. Fans of historical romance will rejoice!
Mia Stanley doesn't try to get in trouble; it follows her wherever she is. Her parents are tormented that she works -- she writes articles for Godey's Lady's Book -- but Mia prefers work over attending endless parties. (She's also known by her friends to be a bit of matchmaker.)
When the magazine assigns her to investigate the unfair treatment of seamen's wives by the rent collectors of their tenements, Mia realizes she may have bitten off more than she can chew on this one. She's not only putting herself and the wives in danger, she may also be putting her love life in peril. Her matchmaking efforts may be driving away the only man she deeply loves. (Bethany House, Jul., 384 pp., $13.99).
