Summary: Lose yourself in the history, opulence, and elegance of the Thousand Islands. Cousins Amanda, Sophie, and Fanny Broadmoor are as close as sisters, but when their grandfather dies, the terms of his will just might destroy their bond. Seventeen-year-old Fanny has never put much stock in the conventions of society. In fact, she has given her heart to Michael, the family boat-keeper. But when she receives a surprising inheritance, she discovers just how oppressive society can be...and that she may be trusting the wrong people.

Dare she follow her heart and risk going against her family? What if she loses everything she's ever known? Its all comes down to one choice: What does Fanny Broadmoor want her legacy to be?

Review: I haven't quite set up a rating system yet but I'm thinking of making it like the Michelin Star system. You can find out more about my rating system here. If I was to rate this book I would give it three stars. I really enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to set down with the next two in the Broadmoor Legacy series. This book transported me back to the 1890s. It was a heart wrenching read. After losing both her mother and her father Fanny is trying to find her place in her family. With a family that hates each other, the book never ran short of surprises. I really liked that Amanda and Sophie stuck by Fanny no matter what. I think my favorite characters had to be Fanny and Michael. I loved seeing their love story unfold and I can't wait to see how it ends in the next two books. The practical jokes/pranks that were played in the book had me laughing and I could relate to how the girls felt. What I didn't like though was that the Servant girl Theresa and Fanny's Uncle Jonas struck up a deal to make Fanny think that Michael had no interest in her. Uncle Jonas is a conniving man and I can't stand him. Is it bad to say that I hope something bad happens to him? Something really needs to happen to make him see the light of what he's doing. Trying to steal Fanny's inheritance won't pay off for him, or at least I hope it won't pay off for him. He doesn't deserve it and he doesn't deserve his third. I really hope you guys enjoy this read, I know I did. I highly suggest that you guys check this series out. The whole series is on Barnes and Noble for your nook. I got mine free from Bookbub.

  3. This sounds like an interesting read, but one that I can avoid. I love seeing what other book bloggers are reading and sometimes I enjoy it because I see information about a book that I would never read myself, but I can tell that the person writing about it thoroughly enjoyed it. I could tell by the way you talked about this book that you liked it.

    As far as rating systems, all book bloggers are different. Do whatever you feel like you want to do to represent your brand and system. For me, I do not rate because I think it detracts greatly from me discussing the book and focuses more on my rating instead of what I am saying. Everyone though has to do what they feel they want with their potential rating system. I liked what you said about your rating system on that page. Very focused on the positive books, great idea!
