Book Review - An Elegant Facade by Kristi Ann Hunter

I just finished Kristi Ann Hunter's novel An Elegant Facade, which is set in England about a hundred years ago.  The historical details are very good, and readers fond of Jane Austen's England would enjoy this.  The book involves Lady Georgina, who has a secret to hide, and Colin McCrae, a Scottish businessman who will never really fit into London society.  Both characters develop over the course of the novel.  I enjoyed both characters very much, actually.  Some of the secondary characters are interesting as well, although there are a lot of secondary characters, so most have trivial roles in the novel.  It was sometimes difficult to keep track of some of the secondary characters.  This is the second book in a series, and I didn't read the first, but it was definitely a stand-alone novel.  (Although, if you don't want to know how the first one ends, read it first!)  Overall, this is an enjoyable, romantic historical novel.

I received this book from the publisher, Bethany House, for the purpose of writing a review, but all opinions are my own.
