An Elegant Facade by Kristi Ann Hunter Review

27066722 

Summary
 Lady Georgina Hawthorne has worked tirelessly to seal her place as the Incomparable for her debut season. At her first London ball, she hopes to snag the attention of an earl.
With money and business connections, but without impeccable bloodlines, Colin McCrae is invited everywhere but accepted nowhere. When he first encounters the fashionable Lady Georgina, he's irritated by his attraction to a woman who concerns herself only with status and appearance.
What Colin doesn't know is that Georgina's desperate social aspirations are driven by the shameful secret she harbors. Association with Colin McCrae is not part of Georgina's plan, but as their paths continue to cross, they both must decide if the realization of their dreams is worth the sacrifices they must make.

My Review
 I'll admit, when I started this book Lady Georgina irritated me to death! I was frustrated with her and I wanted her to end up with a big jerk as her husband. But as the story progressed, and her secret was revealed, you understand her vulnerability and I started to feel sorry for her. She is nothing like she presents herself in society. She is kindhearted, loyal to her friends, and really just unsure of herself and her future.
Colin McCrae- I loved this guy the entire book. He is not part of aristocracy, but he is a successful business man who will never worry about money. He's also honorable, witty, and protective. He also learns Georgina's secret. He knows her weakness and being able to see what he does with this knowledge was awesome.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It did drag in a few parts and may have been a little longer than necessary. However, it was well-written and I loved the overall message. 4 stars
Thank you to Netgalley and Bethany House for the advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
