An Unlikely Suitor, by Nancy Moser. In this Novel we meet Lucy Scarpelli, who after her father's death, has taken on caring for the family. Finding out that the place they had always lived was sold and they needed to move out, Lucy went searching for a new home for her sister, mother and herself. After working in a sewing sweatshop type place, Lucy runs into a gentleman who not only has an apartment for rent, but also has openings in his dress making shop! So Lucy and her sister (Sophia) and her mother move in and discover their talents! Lucy also gets the chance to meet Rowena, a socialite, who's quite taken with Lucy and quickly becomes friends with her. Lucy not only has an eye for sewing, but also finds a way to alter Rowena's dresses to hide her disability! Rowena comes up with a plan and brings Lucy with her to her summer home. There Rowena is facing an arranged marriage to a man and while she finds him very nice and a gentleman, she doesn't love him. Lucy also finds love in this novel, but all isn't as it seems!!
this was an awesome book! I really enjoyed it! I didn't find it predictable as you often do with love stories. This is a great addition to the library!
