Trying to escape the shambles her con-man father has made of their reputation, Lucinda Curtis arrives in West Point, New York, determined to land a husband from the military academy. Campbell Conklin is first in his class and preparing to embark upon a storied career in the U.S. Army. Lucinda thinks Campbell will make the perfect husband . . . as long as he does not find out about her father.
Seth Westcott also has taken a liking to Lucinda. He’s kind, smart . . . and working extremely hard to graduate last. Tradition states that the worst cadets are assigned to the cavalry out west. And west is where Seth must head to track the swindler who stole all of Seth’s mother’s money. Seth is smart enough to vie for the top spot, but life isn’t fair and this is his chance to catch the man who ruined his family. It’s too bad Campbell is all shine and no substance, but Lucinda will surely see through all of that, won’t she?
Flirtation Walk by Siri Mitchell was everything that one would expect from a Christian romance. It is cute and fun. With Christian romance you usually know how its going to end so the getting there is always the fun part of the journey.
I have to say I really liked how it was set at West Point. You don’t get to many historical romance novels set there (at least that I have read). Discussing this book with a friend actually got her talking about how her son went to West Point. I love learning new things like that because of books.
I really enjoyed Lucinda’s character development through the book. It takes a lot of strength sometimes to come to grips with the fact that a parent was less than honest about how the world is. I loved Seth’s sense of honor and even some of the pranks he pulled. But truth be told it was Seth’s friends that made this book worth reading. They are what kept the story going when it started to stall a bit.
Overall this book was decent. I have read Siri Mitchell before and like her writing style but I wouldn’t call this one her best. Flirtation walk was sweet and not to deep. I do look forward to what she will be releasing next.
