A Woman of Fortune by Kellie Coates Gilbert
Texas socialite Claire Massey is living the dream. Her world is filled with designer clothes, luxury cars, and stunning homes. But her Neiman-Marcus lifestyle comes crashing down when her charming cattle broker husband is arrested for fraud. Suddenly, she finds herself facing attorneys, a media frenzy, and a trail of broken hearts. Betrayed and humiliated, Claire must start over against incredible odds to save her family–and discover a life worth living.
My thoughts: I live in Dallas so I really fell in love with this book, I thought the use of real streets, towns and venues made me love the story even more. I loved Claire and felt that as a woman we sometimes fall into a false sense of security and don't realize what is going on around us I don't feel like her husband set out to hurt his family but in the end I don't think men ever think that far ahead. I love that Claire was so loyal to Tuck and her family.
I feel like Kellie Coates Gilbert took her time developing her characters made this book seem so real to me. I think it was an emotionally gripping and I one point I was brought to tears. I would give this book 4 stars out of 5.
