Flirtation Walk by Siri Mitchell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Lucinda and Seth's story takes place around the mid 1800s in a town near the military academy West Point. The characters in the book really grabbed my attention. Lucinda, raised by a con artist who also happens to be her father, used her as part of his swindling jobs. She doesn't know what normal life in a small town is like until she learns of his death and returns to her mother's estranged family. Her naive personality about people and the world is complex and forgiving given her past. I felt Lucinda is the strongest character in the novel and I caught myself cheering her on when she began to trust others and changed her views.
Seth is also an interesting character however I wanted to meet his sister and see her and Seth reunite after everything they've been through. I'm guessing/hoping that's going to be in a later book of her own. Seth shows how much he's willing to give up for his loved ones yet his idea of getting there is a bit irresponsible.
The ending was as I hoped it would be. I enjoyed the way Lucinda stood her ground and stuck up for herself especially to her father. However I wish Seth and Lucinda could finally have the kiss they missed when walking down flirtation walk the first time. I'm a sucker for first kisses lol! Anyways, I'm going to give Flirtation Walk a 3 out of 5 stars because I really wanted to see more chemistry between Seth and Lucinda however I loved Lucinda and enjoyed seeing her change into the person her mother would be proud of.
I received this ARC from Baker Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
