I just loved this book It was so up my alley Two of my favorite books are Gone With the Wind and Forever Amber and this was sort of a mash up of those Okay this was not as a sweeping saga as those two books but it borrowed elements from them There may have been nothing really new offered here but I don t care It was the exact kind of story that keeps me turning the pages and removes me from the drudgery of houseworkThe story centers around Cora Cash love the name who is rich beyond belief as we are reminded every other page Her mother lacks only one thing that money can t buy a royal title so she dispatches Cora off across the pond to land a duke Cora is rich and pretty Duke is handsome and poor bingo The Duke and Cora come to the marriage with their baggage from the past in the form of Charlotte and Teddy respectively Of course the path to happily ever after cannot be smooth or there wouldn t be a story Cue the misunderstandings and lost opportunities and you have the bulk of this book with a dollop of happy ending like a cherry on top The supporting members of the cast such as Cora s maid and mother and the Duke s best friend round out the story I thoroughly enjoyed this book like a hunk Godiva chocolate Berlin Alexanderplatz you have the bulk of this book with a dollop of happy ending like a cherry on top The supporting members of the cast such as Cora s maid and mother and the Duke s best friend round out the story I thoroughly enjoyed this book like a hunk Godiva chocolate

My Last Duchess Read º PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Hing is uite as it seems however Ivo is withdrawn and secretive and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals Money Cora soon learns cannot buy everything as she must decide what is truly worth the price in her life and her marria. Oh Cora can you believe that there are some things in life that can t be boughtCora Cash has it all youth beauty money and fame Her family is one of the most known and recognized and their wealth far surpasses that of the majority With a lavish lifestyle and wanting for nothing Cora should be set for life except that there is something that her mother wants for herself so than her daughter that can not be bought a title With this in mind the Cash family set out from America to England to find Cora an English nobleman In time their wish becomes true and Cora becomes engaged to Ivo of Wareham a Duke As Duchess of Wareham however Cora realizes that within these grand walls life is far from being the fairytale she envisonedThis was an entertaining and dramatic book and it read much like an olden days version of a gossip magazine Cora Cash is a vivacious and headstrong young woman Due to her wealth she occupies a privileged place in society None can match her zeal or economic reach There is however something that the Cash money can not buy and that a status of nobility Intent on having their daughter marry a royal the Cash family leave New York for England Amid dinners and parties Cora is introduced to English society and by chance meets Ivo the Duke of Wareham Cora grows uite fond of Ivo and and is thrilled when he proposes But much as Cora is marrying for love she knows this is a transaction for both parties She gets the status and he gets access to her vast wealth which because of his family s debts and the wear tear of the Wareham estate he definitely needs Still becoming the Duchess of Wareham is a dream come true But when the wedding and honeymoon are over Cora realizes that the glamour decadence and excesses of living as a royal helps hide much complicated and trying life Its time to avoid scandals and follow protocol though that is easier said than doneI have to say that I uite enjoyed this book Loosely based on the life of Consuelo Vanderderbilt a real life American Duchess The narrative flowed nicely and depicted 1800 s England in all its splendor and chaos Cora started out as naive and spoiled but grew into a much confident and smart woman Life as a Duchess is not all glamour and fun The distinctions between the royals and the servants made for an intense and notorious contrast Much as Cora has a title now because she is American she is not uite accepted by the Wareham staff English society or her motherin law I do have some ualms though There were characters that in my humble opinion needed to be a bit fleshed out I am thinking about Mrs Cash the duke and his mother I also wanted something with the storyline about Bertha Cora s personal maid Another issue for me was the ending At first I thought I must have missed a few pages but it was not the case The ending felt too abrupt making it feel rather inconclusive and messy All and all this was an entertaining and interesting book I now can not wait to read about the real Consuela Vanderbilt coincidentally I already have American Duchess by Karen Harper on my shelves now

Honestly I didn t enjoy this book I hated Cora and what was with Ivo and his menopausal mood swingsAnd all this calling people just Duke or Duchess when addressing them is absolutely horrid I cannot believe that I actually read this through Spoilers follow sort ofI can t ruin the plot there isn t oneI can t ruin the ending it just stopsThere was one character that I liked in that entire book and that was Bertha to be honest we get next to nothing to show if she will ever enjoy a single moments happiness The author in my view spent far too long dressing people in Mouselline from Paris very repetitively I might add not enough time making things happen When anything did happen in the book she just sort of glossed over it including a woman having her head set on fire the set up ws far too obvious fisticuffs in the long gallery well sort of ish Things which I think were supposed to be really important didn t get the build up that they needed and other things were built up so much and then came to nothing Besides all of which what after all of that she just takes his word for it I d have enjoyed it if she d just married the van leyder hosen I know that s not his actual name but that s how it stuck in my head from the get go not flopped around the South Coast naming men Odo and Ivo other strange unusual epithetsI don t often do reviews of books but this is the second time I ve persevered with a book of this ilk waiting for the plot to begin only to find that there isn t one Luckily this was a library book which will be going back shortly
