When an engagement of convenience becomes anything but convenient . . .

Forced into a betrothal with a widower twice her age, Charleston socialite, Sophia Fairfield is desperate for an escape. But, while her fiancé is away on business, he assigns his handsome stepson, Carver, the task of looking after his bride-to-be. Much to her dismay, Sophia finds herself falling in love with the wrong gentleman—a man society would never allow her to marry, given Sophia was supposed to be his new stepmother. The only way to save Carver from scandal and financial ruin is to run away, leaving him and all else behind to become a Harvey Girl waitress at the Castañeda Hotel in New Mexico.

Carver Ashton has had his life planned out for him since birth, but when he encounters Sophia Fairfield, he glimpses a new life—apart from his overbearing stepfather's business. But, when the woman he loves disappears before he can express his devotion, Carver abandons all to find her. However, his stepfather has other intentions for Sophia and will stop at nothing until she is his bride . . . even if it is against her will

My Thoughts 

The Finding of Miss Fairfield is the newest by Grace Hitchcock and part of her newest series Aprons and Veils. I really enjoyed this story and I think it was a great start to the series. I love stories that have the Harvey Girl theme to them. Not sure why but I do! 

In this story we meet Sophia who has always followed the rules that have been almost forced upon her by her parents. When her father decides to make a business deal regarding her and marriage to a much older man she decides that she's had enough. Sadly she doesn't think much of herself in looks or capabilities but I really enjoyed her growth throughout the story. Her relationship with Carver was quite lovely! Carver was a great leading man and had his own swoony moments. 

This story definitely has a little bit of everything. I found that it had a good amount of suspense and there was a part I didn't expect to happen. I am not going to tell you so it will be surprising for you as well. This was a good story. It was entertaining and there was definitely a faith thread woven into the story. 

Overall I thought the story was good and can't wait for the next installment.

My Rating: 4 Stars/ Really Liked it!
