Author Deeanne Gist
One of the biggest joys in my life is finding a new author to read. After discovering Tamera Alexandra several months ago, (see earlier posts), this week I had the pleasure of reading "Maid to Match", by Inspirational author, Deeanne Gist. From the very beginning, I couldn't put the book down. Deeanne's description of life at the Biltmore estate in Asheville, North Carolina was riveting.
The forbidden romance between Tillie and Mack, servants on the estate, is delicious. Tillie's ambition to become lady's maid to Mrs. Vanderbilt is jeopardized by her attraction to Mack. Mack needs his job as a 'useful man' to get his sister out of the orphanage and away from the abusive orphanage director. Lots of conflict, lots of stolen kisses.
A fantastic read from beginning to end. I highly recommend it and look forward to reading more works by Ms. Gist!
