Welcome to Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List! 



Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List  a glimpse into what I am reading currently





Current book:

A Lady of High Regard

Tracie Peterson



A Lady of High Regard by Tracie Peterson  a Sneak Peek



Goodreads Summary:

Born into affluence, Mia Stanley is a winsome socialite with a knack for matchmaking. She's also a writer for Godey's Lady's Book magazine, much to the disdain of her family and their society friends. A proper young lady of her social standing isn't meant to labor in such a way, but Mia has always had a way with words...

When her writing draws her into the world of downtrodden seamen's wives on Philadelphia's docks, Mia uncovers a scheme that puts her in harm's way. But her heart ends up on the line as well.... Has her determination to always make a match driven away the one man whose esteem she covets?



Sneak Peek:

"Everything always seems so simply resolved with you, Mia. I sometimes wonder how you manage to keep it all so neatly ordered."  p 31







Initial Thoughts

I always have mixed feelings with Tracie's books.  She writes in a different way than many historical fiction Christian writers.  Her characters feel more modern, yet she pulls in enough of the setting to keep the book historical.  This is another example of that, as she has a very headstrong, leading lady who is not going to be held back by the expectations of women in her era. Yet, there is something that keeps me from just devouring these books... this one, like many others, are safe. They plod along at a steady pace, but never draw me to sit and sit...
