Publisher's Book Description

“New Orleans' most eligible bachelor insists he's not on the market . . . but he couldn't be more wrong. 


Jilted in front of all New York, Theodore Day decides to lose himself in his family's luxury riverboat business in New Orleans and compete against his brother to become the next company head. The brother with the most sales by summer's end will win the position. Thanks to Theodore's fame as a suitor in a socialite's outlandish competition to find a husband, he has become very desirable royalty in Southern society and thus has an advantage. 


It took Flora Wingfield's best work to convince her family to summer in New Orleans, but with Teddy Day a bachelor once again, she's leaving nothing to chance. Desperate to stand out from all the clamoring belles, Flora attempts a bold move that goes completely awry, only to find it's her interior design skills that finally catch his notice. 


But when Flora's father's matchmaking schemes come in the way of her plans, Teddy will have to decide where his happiness truly lies and what he is willing to sacrifice for it.”

My Review

Her Darling Mr. Day, by Grace Hitchcock is the second book in the American Royalty series. This delightful novel features a distinctive story that is quite engaging! Filled with charm, humor, mystery, and romance, this enjoyable novel is intriguing, uplifting, and thoroughly entertaining. With compelling characters, captivating plot points, and memorable settings, Ms. Hitchcock has crafted a book that is wonderfully endearing.  

It is certainly a pleasure to spend time within the pages of this novel. The main characters are thoughtful, interesting, and undeniably likable while the secondary characters add important depth and intrigue to the story. The situations in which the characters find themselves are often funny, sometimes perilous, and even unconventional. Whether in a grand home, a neighborhood park, an opulent riverboat, or even high in the branches of a tree, the characters never fail to captivate and surprise the reader page after page. 

With a true talent for storytelling, Ms. Hitchcock has crafted a book that is thoughtful and appealing. Within the comfort of its pages, Her Darling Mr. Day is a genuinely special novel that welcomes the reader to revel in the joy of reading. I gladly recommend it.
