Daisies and Devotion by Josi S. Kilpack ~ Review

Lucie's Review: 
Companion book to Promises and Primroses. 

Timothy Mayfield is a upstanding, responsible, honorable, young man who has accepted his circumstances as a man who must marry for money. Though he is a good man, his financial situation is known and he is about ready to give on his search for a wife when his Uncle Elliot presents him with a solution to his problem. Timothy takes his uncle up on his offer to participate in the "marriage campaign" to find a suitable low match, and a generous inheritance will be his. Free to look for a match without considering money, he makes a list of the qualities he wants in his perfect match.

Maryann Morrington has spent the last few years caring for her sick mother, her father is wealthy so even though she has not been in society long there are many bachelors seeking her hand. Maryann has known Timothy for a while, she had once considered him as a suitor, but when she sees his list she tells him that he is being utterly unrealistic, but she agrees to help him find the girl of his dreams.

Will Timothy realize that maybe the girl for him is the one who doesn't quite fit all the requirements of his list, and that she's been there all along?

I loved this book. From cover to cover, this book brought a smile to my face. I loved Timothy and Maryann, they are both so well developed. Maryann is clever and has a good head on her shoulders, she is a true friend to Timothy, from advising him on his wardrobe to straightforwardly telling him the truth and challenging him to be a better man.

Timothy is a natural extrovert, he has a good heart, but doesn't always think through what he says before saying it. He is genuine, fair, and more than a little oblivious when it comes to finding his match.

Overall, so well written, with excellent dialog, with characters that you can't help but cheer for all the way through. Highly enjoyable, I didn't want to put this book down. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
