We adored New York Times bestselling author Daisy Goodwin’s Downton-y delicious debut, THE AMERICAN HEIRESS, and now we get to wish her second historical novel, THE FORTUNE HUNTER, a very happy #BookBday!
“Although readers who enjoyed THE AMERICAN HEIRESS will be first in line to savor Goodwin’s new novel, they will be followed quickly by others who appreciate engaging and thoughtful historical fiction.”
— Library Journal, starred review
“Goodwin’s second novel is a luxurious indulgence for romantically inclined readers. Mingling historical fact with imaginative fiction, Goodwin writes with effortless grace, and her dialogue’s subtle wit is delightful. Each of her three protagonists commands attention and sympathy, which heightens the story’s poignancy.”
“An enchanting, beautifully written page-turner.” — Publishers Weekly
“With its witty dialogue, intriguing research and cameo appearances by Queen Victoria and other royals, Goodwin’s latest is a pleasurable excursion into Downton-land complete with high-society weddings, lavish balls and an exciting, all-or-nothing horse-racing finale.” — Kirkus Reviews
“Swiftly plotted, peopled with interesting, sympathetic characters and laced with humor and clever dialogue, this lively novel is historical fiction at its entertaining best.” — Shelf Awareness
