Her Darling Mr. Day
by Grace Hitchcock
About the book
New Orleans’ most eligible bachelor insists he’s not on the market . . . but he couldn’t be more wrong.
Jilted in front of all New York, Theodore Day decides to lose himself in his family’s luxury riverboat business in New Orleans and compete against his brother to become the next company head. The brother with the most sales by summer’s end will win the position. Thanks to Theodore’s fame as a suitor in a socialite’s outlandish competition to find a husband, he has become very desirable royalty in Southern society and thus has an advantage.
It took Flora Wingfield’s best work to convince her family to summer in New Orleans, but with Teddy Day a bachelor once again, she’s leaving nothing to chance. Desperate to stand out from all the clamoring belles, Flora attempts a bold move that goes completely awry, only to find it’s her interior design skills that finally catch his notice.
But when Flora’s father’s matchmaking schemes come in the way of her plans, Teddy will have to decide where his happiness truly lies and what he is willing to sacrifice for it.
“Her Darling Mr. Day is a delightful and charming romantic romp. I know my readers will find this novel as endearing as I did and highly recommend it.”–TRACIE PETERSON, bestselling author of the Ladies of the Lake series
I love this series about ‘American royalty’.
Flora is such a fun character. Her desired relationship with Teddy Day…my such shenanigans she pulled off…
Flora is ecstatic, she managed to convince her mother that their family should summer in New Orleans. Why? Because Theodore Day will be there. Again, why? Because….Flora has her heart set on marrying him.
The story is humorous. There is lots going on. Flora practically throws herself at Teddy. Unfortunately, Teddy is still suffering from his last broken engagement to Flora’s friend Willow (read the first book in the series, My Dear Miss Dupre, to get the full scoop on that story…), and he sees Flora as nothing more than a friend. What does she have to do to get his attention?
Or. The better question might be what DIDN’T she do.
In addition to her pursuit of Mr. Day, there is also the fact that the local socialites in New Orleans do not appreciate her pursuit of him. They are convinced that he needs to get married to one from their own little group.
This brings about some danger. And even a bit of mystery…someone is determined to scare off Flora. Who is it?
I recommend this historical fiction romance to any readers who enjoy reading clean, sweet stories.
