Masquerade By: Nancy Moser

It's the 1800's in England and Charlotte Gleason is just a naive rich girl, who always gets what she wants, from a family highly ranked on the social ladder or so she thought... When Charlotte finds out the truth her world is turned upside down and inside out and is sent off to America, with her maid Dora Conners, to marry Conrad Tremain. Looking for an adventure Charlotte forces her maid to switch lives and identities with her in order to seize the opportunity. Charlotte has no idea what is coming her way and it definitely is an adventure she gets but not necessarily the one she wants!

Masquerade: definitely not in love with the title! It brings to mind a cheesy Halloween party where the host seems to be trying to hard. I absolutely hated the character, Lottie Hathaway, she was so ignorant and naive. Many times during the book I wished I had been there to slap her! However, Lottie is what kept me interested so I say hats off to Nancy! I very much enjoyed reading Masquerade, especially Dora Conners' situation. Many times I felt so embarrassed for her!
I would absolutely recommend this book to my avid reader friends and I am glad to have it on my bookshelf.

I was given a free copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
