I really enjoyed reading this book. I thought it was well written and felt connection with all the characters. This story has it all, romance, adventure, grief, and above all surprise. I would definitely recommend to others to read, especially if you like historical romances. This story does not disappoint.

Fannie set the swing in motion again. Whats it like, Minette? she asked after a few minutes.
Whats what like?
Fannie nudged her friends shoulder. Love.
Minette didnt answer for a moment. Finally, she said, Its like hearing an echo. As if Ive been calling for something for all of my life without realizing it...and at last someone answered back. And what he said filled part of me I didnt even know was empty.

Fanny Rousseau is busy trying to understand her life. While her best friend Minette is preparing for marriage, Fanny is dealing with the loss of her parents and the realization that her secure world is crumbling down around her. Bills are piling up and she is unprepared for dealing with life alone. Then she discovers part of a family secret and determining to make sense of it, embarks on an exciting adventure like she never imagined. In the process she discovers her inner strengths and draws closer to God as she learns to reconcile with her past. And somewhere along the line she also falls in love....

I thoroughly enjoyed this latest offering from Ms. Whitson. The characters were realistic and believable; the plot was exciting and compelling. This book supplied a satisfying love story while also giving the reader a chance to open her heart to hear some important truths from God.

I received this complimentary copy from Bethany House Publishers for this review. A positive review was not required and the opinions expressed here are my own.

Started off a little slow, but once Fannie's adventures began, I could not put the book down. Practically all the characters in A Most Unsuitable Match were very interesting and well written. I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to others.

Fannie has grown up in a wealthy home and practically raised by the house servant. She hadn't had a good relationship with her mom, though she tried. She was very close to her friend and neighbor who is blind. When her mother dies, she finds out her mom had a twin sister. With no one else in her family, she sets out to find this aunt. In the beginning of her journey she meets a kind man named Samuel who is willing to help her. He is always reading his mother's Bible which sparks an interest in Fannie to hear more of the words in the book. Many things happen in the book that are tragic or hard to deal with, but the story was well done. I enjoyed the characters and how you were able to get to know them each pretty well. It was a pretty good book. Although it is a Christian Fiction Romance tale, there isn't a lot of romance, and it is more about finding God and understanding His love for us.
